Its a real problem at present as when Border Force went zero tolerance they didn't establish any guidance as to what procedures or processes to follow to ensure a car could pass inspection. So you could get a car inspected overseas before shipment but they may not accept the inspection when it gets here.

And the asbestos inspectors are occupational hygienists not mechanics.........

It also gets worse as if i was to temporary export the Alfa or Lady P for an overseas event, I wouldn't be able to bring it back in without being inspected, even though they have lived in Australia all their lives.

There is a lot of lobbying going on by a number of motoring groups on the matter, but no resolution or clarity to date.

Cheers
Steve

The owner does not use this forum anymore. He’s another one who has jumped ship to FB, because of its convenient picture uploads.
