yes, that does concern me, but with a lot of the parts coming from Australia and with how much 4x4 market there is out there, I would think I could find a home for my SR in the land down under.

just like with certain places in the USA, my SR would be illegal and against regulation. no front sway bar, suspension lift, body lift, 35 inch tyres that protrude past my fender flares, etc.

still military, not retiring, just moving to Australia as part of the process.

taking the SR with me is completely a personal ambition out of my personal pocket.

mate from what i have heard they have tightened up the rules for importing cars, but if it fails then be assured that you can still buy good gen2s here.

Leave the SR with family or put into deep storage. Get another pajero (TDiesel) when you get there.

If you are travelling under orders, check if there are special provisions for importing your vehicles. JAG should have info if this is so.

When I received orders to go to Germany, we were allowed to ship one POV free. Maybe things have changed. I shipped an 89 Accord over, and brought a '92 Monty back. Good luck Scottie. Keep us posted on your travels!

Hey Scottie. I think you guys would be back, eventually. With all the family you have here, you couldnt stay away too long, plus it would drive the parents crazy not being able to see the grand kids haha.

On the bright side for us forum members, maybe we can have you start importing us things <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" /> You can also check out Pajero 4WD Club of Victoria

Hope you can take your SR. They may give you the run around for a little, but I would imagine you could get it over. If not, worse case senario if you need to, I have a 5000sq ft storage/garage big enough to keep your SR in. I keep a wrecked 98 Montero in there for now with misc other things.

Best of luck my friend <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />

just run some oil in your fuel system (marvel, ATF, Sta Bil) so that it gets into the injectors. Silicone spray everything in your engine bay, this will keep your rubber from drying out too fast. Rotate your crank so that all your valves are closed and there's no pressure on the lifters. When you get back drain your gas tank, rinse it with WD-40, fill it back up, unplug your injectors, crank the motor for a bit and re plug the injector harness and you will be good to go. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Within the year, I will be moving to Australia. Needless to say, I want to take my SR with me!

I guess at this point it would be appropriate to say

Cheers! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />


Hi Scottie.

Where in Oz are you PCSing?

Will you be under a Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA)? For the Active Duty & U.S. Gov personnel here (Alice Springs, NT) they get to import 1 vehicle under the SOFA. However, at the U.S. Embassy Canberra they are not under a SOFA so no vehicle import. I believe the Alice Springs location is the only location using a SOFA.


None
