Going to SYD 7/12-9/12

So I'm thinking about doing a road trip down to SYD with a couple of friends to go and get a gearbox from a member down there/get my friend some hours on his L's... Does anyone want to tag along? We could do a convoy or something.

Also, are you SYD peeps up for a meet up if this was to go ahead?

I hope you are getting the gearbox for free as the cost of petrol will cancel out any savings on the gearbox.
When I went to Sydney recently I ended up using 7 tanks of fuel on the trip = $550
As you are just doing a road trip count on about 5+ tanks of fuel = $400+.

Have a look at this on ebay. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/wrecking-...#ht_481wt_1417

I did ask you to get the box for me when you went down but you never responded! It'd also be to get my mates hours up and to go somewhere I've never been before- we've been meaning to do it for ages just haven't gotten around to doing it.
