Surely they dont have to start it for painting? If the emergency blocks are in position it can be pushed around easily

I have contacted paint shop today after a very long time with this project stalled and yes I have been in contact letting them know of my issues. And that I will be traveling over to discus the way forward in early September . I now wish to have my 6.9 back on the road by years end if possible

Geoff, you don't think you could get the car back to Canberra or Sydney ? You would have much better control over its desired completion date - now that you are in the trade, you know Michel and even I could advise you in some matters. Regards Styria

I have to agree with Styria.

In the East you can 'see and feel' what's happening.

Agreed trying to undertake this work remotely is a receipe for disaster. Get the car local even if you have to pay extra for the longer term storage. Freighting the car isnít an issue since youíll have to move the car anyway. Just make sure itís on wooden blocks for transport so the suspension (& body) doesnít get wrecked in transit.
