  1. Is that the GN that can't be complied and registered for road use? Looks like it has the farm kit fitted.
  2. I wouldn't use mdf. Ply has more structural integrity.
  3. Does that dehydrated stuff actually taste like food nowadays? I remember dried mashed potato being a bit shit way back when. Spamming the thread a bit. Jealous of the fun you're all going to have. Thoroughly enjoyed reading about last year's escapade.
  4. Just each take with you a few cans of bully beef and some sort of bread. With that and some beer you'll be all set.
  5. I totally don't get this, from the second link. Makes no sense at all. New Zealand has strict controls on the importation of tobacco for sale. There is an absolute prohibition in the Smoke-Free Environments Act 1990 on the importation for sale of tobacco, which is suitable for chewing, or any other oral use other than smoking. Approval cannot be given to import chewing tobacco for sale.
  6. ....if you don't mind driving around town in second gear cos it won't run slow enough in top.
  7. No, but I can well imagine people smashing all the things around the thing they want because they don't have the right tools / sufficient intelligence to remove it sensibly in case someone else wants the other stuff.
  8. Yes I have a parts car but South Otago so a bit far away unless you get desperate.
  9. Yes, 12" tyres are becoming hard to find and are almost always more expensive than 13".
  10. Any reason not to use 12" rims if you convert to old Civic hubs?
  11. Will def be there for the gathering at the end. Even if the homekill butcher doesn't show up my participation in the run could be limited by children's sport. I like @smokin'joe's suggestion of an all nighter at his bush place sometime soonish.
  12. Might not make it to the run due to potentially killing beef. The butcher had planned to come last weekend but got called into his other job on Saturday and lost most of Sunday looking for his pig dogs. Still keen to join you all for drinks and sharns afterwards though.
  13. 2376 barleycorn to the chain. It's perfectly logical.
  14. Got a reply from Catlins brewery as follows, Kerry Norm is in Wellington with his family for a few days for school holidays, so I don’t want to bother him til he returns. I am not sure if he will be fine with this, as he may be tied up with shooting ducks, as you probably know that is opening weekend!! I will let him know of your request, and get back to you soon. As we don’t have a licence to sell alcohol from the brewery directly to the public there can only be samples! We do sell merchandise, though. If I was to host you it wouldn’t have the flair that Norm adds to a visit!! Peter Might have to make it another time perhaps. See what Norman says when he gets back. I had forgotten that they aren't licenced to sell retail directly from the brewery.
  15. Still waiting to hear back from Norman wrt brewery visit but it's likely to be a go. He's a GC.
  16. So we'd finish in Kaka Point with the brewery visit if Norman is up for it then?
  17. Is it worth me giving Norman a yell re brewery visit?
