Looking for workshop in Broome

Hi all,

I am looking for a place to do some repairs on my Landcruiser, preferably a sheltered place or workshop. Bought the car a few weeks ago for long travelling in Oz. Want to replace the front axle drive shaft seals before going to do some rough offroading in the Kimberly.

Thanks,

Noel

Thumbs up Reasonable Mechanic

If you struggle to find a workshop this mechanic is a good bloke and a good deal cheaper than the rest of the mechanics in town. Had him work on my Forerunner a few times last yr.

travel

Hi Taco,

Not on this trip but probably in the future. This trip will end in Darwin for me but we will keep the car (bought it with a friend) and use it for regular 4-5 week holidays in the near future. This trip is 3 months from Perth to Darwin! Nice and slow!

You? Any travel plans with the 650, still on the gold coast?

Say hi to Maria.

Groetjes,

Noel

Keep it cold

Hi Taco,

Can't this time but the time will come since we will move the car around Oz for the next few years. Cold coast will sure be on the list too. Keep it cold till then!

Greets,
Noel
