Engine Crate

Hi all,

my 357 is just on finished and I need to find an engine crate so I can ship it back to NZ (yeah, I'm another dodgy Kiwi temporarily in Aus).

Am in Canberra. Anyone know where I can pick up a crate, or will I have to construct one out of the fence? (landlord won't like that)

Cheers, Wax

P.S. Go the All Blacks!

Re: Engine Crate

Hey mate,
you might try an orange crate. They are basically a pallet but with wooden walls about 50cm high. Try the local fruit wholesaler.

Re: Engine Crate

Cheers fellas,

I think the pallet, pine and ply might be the way to go

clevo's going in an XC ute

like many projects, this one has grown,
the 357 has a hyd roller, AFD 2v heads, an edelbrock air-gap manifold and twin gas research set-up. Will be throwing jet-hot coated tri-y's and a twin 2.5" system with x-pipe on her aswell.
The drive train is a 6-speed T56, and the rear-end is a disced 9" 3.5 lsd

Should go all right.
