    Might e buying a car soon and it would be good to know what to do in advance.
    Online. Enter details, print and stick to window. $40 something for one day. Can get up to a month i think. Cop saw my VN with no plates at the servo, quick glance at permit and kept walking.

      Ok and what's the deal with condition of car? As long as lights work, Brakes works and it's running reasonably well can you get away with dents, different colour panels, primer, rust etc?

          Has to be "safe" is the usual requirement although may vary state to state. They don't care about appearance.

            It doesn't seem to be a question they ask. I have used them a few times to get repairs done for a roadie, so by definition the car is un roadworthy and it's all good.

              Truck question that doesn't deserve a thread... Can the truck driver deflate the airbags on a skel trailer to lower it/the container on it for easier unpacking?

                    Ok, is there any bulk degreaser that is as good as the Export cans? And not just raw diesel? Looking for an alternative now that you cant buy a case of Aussie Export degreaser from SCA for $10.

                      I bought this exact roll, you will need to trim it to suit. It's fantastic stuff and nothing like the el cheapo stuff you buy when trying to wrap things with it.

                        A bit bigger than I'd like but I could make it work. Thanks!

                          I reckon black magic degreaser is better than export cans. Can get it in 20L off ebay

                            You can buy drums from your favorite hydrocarbon producer. Paint it on or put in a pressure pack from Wurth or whomever if thats your thing.

                              I've used this before, seemed to work well.
