I guess I know who I will be talking to when that time ever comes!

Rick, so you know a couple years ago I went through a major teardown and re build similar to yours and I have to say when I was done (in no small part to the help folks here gave!), my car has been a wonder to drive! so smooth and for 230thou on the odometer, one would think it was new....

now I have a chance to ship her to Hawaii and am contemplating......but.....I wonder what the service and local parts would be like. I do know having parts shipped from US continental is pretty steep, but hey I got a chance for paradise...what to do, what to do?

anyway,,,, thanks everyone for the great read,,,,,,I will copy everything so in case I get stuck one day I got reference data!!!



Hawaii, nice! Which island?
As for shipping your car over there, that's a tough one. As you said, shipping is steep and these car aren't cheap to repair. If you are going over there temporarily, perhaps a small car suited to the island theme is more favorable for you. Some thing with surf racks!
