    Can anyone recommend a decent Commodore wrecker? I have tried a couple of numbers on Google and they were hopeless, one place in Bridgewater claimed they don't have any Dores, yet they had 10 or more comments on how great they are?

    I am after a wreckers, not a private sale sedan but thanks anyway. None in Launceston or within 2hrs of Launi have what I need. I need to look in the Hobart region but that's where I'm struggling and only have Google as my guide, as I only know the north.

    That ones been advertised for ages now if I'm correct, bet it's barely nothing more than a shell with a few nuts and bolts still attached. Not the first time I've seen that photo of it on a bogey car trailer, unless I'm totally mistaken.

    Like i said pal i am after the name of a few wrecking yards. I need one thing off a VP i also need VR parts. I was hoping a couple of people from Hobart might have piped in. As they know the terain. Why make a big deal? You made your comment, i politely replied. Now you come up with three more stupid fuckin replies that arent needed.
    Just for the record i drive a VR ute. Now in case you don't fuckin know there is a difference between utes a sedans. Big T stop being a forum slut and replying to every question there is on JC. Because you are really starting to piss me off.

    There are no commodore wreckers here in Hobart.

    These days most of there yards are full of Asian ****, there is one place called taswreck in Glenorchy that might have some older Commodore stuff PH 0418 946 328.

    Thanks mate, that would be why I was struggling to find anything on Google, including the bum steers I got from the search and two calls that went no where. I will try Taswreck on Mon and see what they have to say. Failing that I am looking at mainland to find parts. No one in the north from East to West has what I need. Some don't even have a Commie ute in their yards. One thing I really want is a tub liner but it's looking like no wrecker in Tas has one, Gonna need to wait it out on FB and Gumtree or again failing that wait until I head over to Adelaide.

    You could possibly try ebay......I found some commodores being wrecked on there, so you might get lucky.

    Oh and sorry, not a wreckers located in Tassie, as such, but it might be a lead for you:)

    Another thing to keep in the back of your mind, if you head to Adelaide is, if you notify me soon enough, I'll keep my ears open and see what I can find for you.....

    Yeah bits I need are on ePrey, just asking stupid prices. Thanks for the offer of keeping an eye out for me in SA. I think @vs-lover may still be happy to do the same. What I really need to do is wait until U-Pullit get a new ute in with what I need, then I pounce on it. At least then I won't get shafted with astronomical prices.

    Yes Losh I'm still good for you, UPI has had a couple of VS utes go through Gillman in the past couple of months, one oddly being a V8 in Tungsten. The K-Frame was pretty much the first think that got pulled out and the engine sat in front for a number of weeks until it was bought by someone.

    I guess what you need to do is start writing a Xmas list and I'll start buying to order for you.

    Yeah went to Hylands last Thursday. Grabbed three things for an almost 5hr round trip. He had more Commi stock than anywhere i have seen. Just wasn't able to get everything i needed. He was very exi compared to Exeter, probably on par with Flarrity in Town. It is really looking like ePrey or try some Adelaide wreckers when I head over.
    Certainly does show the low stock of early Commi utes in Tas, when wreckers have very little.

    What i really want now is a column shift steering shrouds from a VP plus the gear selector dial from the same. Unless a VR dial is the same as VP.
    Trying to hunt down a tub liner but can't expect anyone to store that while I have no idea when I will be coming over.
