Re: Where can I buy nitrocellulose lacquer in NZ?

I don't know if anyone has checked (I most certainly have not), but Nitro Lacquer was/is the "official" classic car finish and so, it would seem likely to be able to find it in places that specilaise in automotive paints.

"Agricultural" LOL, what a great term! Reminds me of SO many things I had to deal with back when we were ...

Re: My Latest Obsession and Reason

So sorry to hear about the loss of your brother... :( Yes, it's a bass forum, and a Harley produces a very nice bass note as far as I'm concerned. So yeah, go ahead and post some pics!

Re: Shipping Bass From Overseas (USA)

Shipping Bass From Overseas (USA)

Has anyone here ever shipped a bass from the USA to NZ?

If so, what shipper did you use, DHL, Postal Service, etc.?

Any info/advice on how to handle the GST and other such charges?
