    What would you consider a small port?

        Yep one would think regardless of other countries, if youre looking for a good RX7/R3x/JZA80 now youve probably left your run a bit late...

          But what if you don't want an R33?

              I have a Nissan Sunny truck currently in Japan and am looking to import.

              What if we purchased all the offending gaskets, clutch, and brake pads here in Australia with proof of receipt and fitted them all over there before shipping?

              Film the fitting of said gaskets?
              This is serious mum!

                Just ship it disassembled minus those bits?

                  Someone said on another thread they bought most of the offending parts back in there luggage then refitted after it had landed lol. System is flawed.

                    From what was explained to me it's more than just the offending part. There could be asbestos in and around the firewall, wheel arches etc. Need to prove the whole car is completely asbestos free, not just remove the offending parts etc.

                    Bullshit I know.

                        No, no they don't. There have been a few people stung bringing in "old" (1950s-60s-70s) engines in containers. Border Farce wanted them checked for asbestos (gaskets etc) and cleared.

                            Every car gets checked, sweet fuck all wrapped pallets from Japan do though

                              Just need to find a bigger container with more stuff in it. No way they're going to pull everything out of a wrecker's 40ft container full of parts.

                                I bet they will, and they'll fucking charge you for it too.
