So so glad to have taken GB 042 to New Zealand with me. Shipped in
December, passed its Compliance and registered for N.Z roads a few days ago Just drove it up yesterday from Auckland with a big smile on my face to our house in Russell, Bay of Islands.

Sorry to miss that fantastic get together on the 20th with the rest of the cars...may decide to drive up to 90 mile beach for a little commerative drive of my own

Hi tyke57nz.....thanks.

Took the car to Martin and Morris at Stag 4x4 as you suggested. They helped with a couple of minor compliance issues and did a service. Great team of people.

Being on the coast they recommended I protected the underside - suggested www.blasta.co.nz. Interestingly Autoblast claim that their full protection give up to 65years of rust protection.....got to be worth a look.

What a beautiful country!!

Hi Pete, Morris was the original importer of the 50th I own from Japan, and he has a good team up there. There are a few independent Land Rover businesses up in the Auckland area with a huge amount of experience so you are spoilt for choice. Cheers Simon
