Hi Tony. Yes, I am in Swannanoa in North Canterbury and of course Timaru is in South Canterbury, so only about 100 miles away. He could be a good contact for sourcing bits and pieces. Can you advise a contact for him? I bought mine as a classic car that I just like the look of and have really enjoyed driving it. I want to renovate the suspension and while mine has 18" wheels already, a better option will be out there.
