    It lands 4th October so as long as it clears customs I'll stick it on a trailer and me and the Mrs will come down for a few beers :)

    35% may be too dark for our legality though?
    I had thew wagon done darkest legal down in vic a number of years ago and they used a 17% film, with 35% in the boot

    *Edit*
    It does appear 35% is legal, must have been relaxed in the last 4 years
  • God I hope you/your car makes it to the meet in October. This is beautiful.

    17 is darker than 35 though...

    35 has been the limit in QLD for as long as I can remember, not too sure about the other states but I doubt there would be much difference.

    Thanks for your kind comments, I hope it makes it as well it's all down to customs clearance now so fingers crossed.

    Some "certified practicing valuer of Australian values insitute" person, according to age/milage condition via redbook. Suits me as I have to pay 10% tax on import so lower the better.
  • Oh well in that case, fantastic!

    I had the tint done on my 760 in 2007 with darkest legal, 35%...
  • Looks like it's arriving 29th September so hopefully enough time to clear customs and make national meet :)

  • What's the closest campsites that people if any at are staying? don't really want to leave it unattended and uninsured on a trailer for to long unless I chain it to a tree
  • jamesincJames (@jamesinc) Oz Volvo Ice Fortress
    I think most people are staying at the Great Lakes Best Western motel. The campsite I'd recommend is on page 1 of the National Meet thread. You may prefer a caravan park, there's a couple of those in Forster too.
