Haven't been up that way since '87. Would you believe me if I said we didn't need MaxTrax up there in the wet season???

Sorry mate, but I have nothing to do with the Quality Control process unfortunately
But I will say that there are some manufacturers products that I don't ever offer to any of my customers

Thanks Matt but I'm sure you would agree that most of our spare parts are manufactured in China. I guess it's a matter of 'find the stuff that isn't made in China'.

Funny that, we used to just layout a "Couple-O-Crocs" and away ya went. :) :) :)
Sorry, It sounded heaps funnier (in my head) the other night when I had a gut full of port.
