Interesting observations. With just a few exceptions, Mark being one of
them, I have the view most Oz syncro owners don't get involved in these
sorts of mods anyway, so where the truth lies and the politics of it all
that you talk about is most probably like water off a ducks back for us
here. Interesting though and I'm sure we do appreciate your input here.
From 15+ hours flying time away from your shores, I think what we do
value is being aware of and having access to T3 syncro focussed websites
supporting a range of replacement parts, maintenance information and
links, virtually all of it being offshore. In the English language as
well! It reassures us our beloved transporters are not dead yet.
Having a local website T3 focussed parts supplier, setup like Van-Cafe
or GoWesty would be an unbelievable dream come true, let alone a site
specialising in syncro mods. Never ever going to happen.
But heh BenT, life in Australia .... now that IS a dream come true!
Please don't tell anyone ok.
