Try Tabco -

Freight may still be expensive though.

Guys I've been talking with Bardan from ImportMonky and a friend of mine in SFO about doing a bulk container load of S30Z panels and parts.

 

I'm thinking about:

> roof turrets (2 seater)

> rear 1/4 panels

> topy steel wheels

> door shells (240z)

> Radiator support sections

> bonnets

> Possibly engines or engine heads (P90s)

> Possibly entire cars (HLS30s)

 

We could also fit Tabco sections in with them.. I still have to work out costs etc.. but I may need to start another thread to get interest from folks and see how much of each is needed.

That sounds like a plan Gavin!

 

Using https://shopmate.auspost.com.au/ will initially post to an address in the US - from there, it is then redirected to you; tabco won't know the difference.

Shopmate (and Australia Post for that matter) have very limiting size restrictions unfortunately;

https://shopmate.aus...ng-restrictions

 

"The maximum weight of a single parcel that can be sent through ShopMate is 22kg.

 
Individual parcels must not exceed the following dimensions:
a maximum girth of 200cm
no one side greater than 1.05m in length
a dimension greater than 0.25 cubic metres
The formula for working out the girth of your overseas parcel is:
Width + height x 2 = girth
 
For example: 30cm + 20cm = 50cm x 2 = 100cm girth"

I have been trying to get Bardan to get stuff outta the USA for awhile so hopefully something happens. If you have no luck I have a friend in the 2000 sports club that has been getting stuff outta the USA and he has a half decent shipping company he uses. I think it cost him around $250 for a pallet to Australia, No idea how much for a container.

Apologies, forgot about the restrictions...

That would be awesome Gav, also rear valances!!

What kind of L24 head? E31 or E88? I'm not really looking to import motors at this stage. Mostly panels and steel wheels. Things that are getting impossible to find here.

Gavin is going to buy an industrial property where he will be able to import and store all this stuff and sell it at a fair price  ;)

The thought had occurred to me, but just a house with a large workshop or a warehouse conversion would also suit me.

I asked about this 1 recently.

I thought being further out of Melbourne in the West it would be cheaper.

They only want close to 1.6M though!

Personally the only reason I was really interested was the workshop. Can't be bothered mowing that lawn regularly. Or looking after a pool.

Maybe look at a house on a larger corner block. you could then put a workshop in the backyard with access from the side street.

I have seen this work well :)

 

Cheers

Yeah I noticed that's what Locky has done in Warragul. Only problem with corner blocks is that they often appeal to developers for sub-division.
