Bridy, I suggest you contact Jessie Gosling at Ceva 08 8348 5804 to discuss the timing of the return of your car.
Cheers,
Roger.
There is a right way and a wrong way and then there is my way which is usually the long way.

Can you change the drop off day to the 14th ??? its not far from CEVA to the airport, when were you planning on flying out ???

After party is go. CEVA confirmation email had drop off 10/06, no on or after, but there information email has on or after 10/06, a bit of over reaction from me mabe. So will probably drop off Monday 17th June, cruise around Perth in Helenor for the weekend.
98 to go :grinnn:

Unfortunately we are flying out to Brisbane early on Saturday morning the week after the Nats or I would have had a barbecue and get together at EKmart over that weekend

Regarding ute and panel van cargo transport home with CEVA, I obtained a verbal clarification from the coordinator, Jess Gosling this morning.

Paraphrasing, cargo in my ute will be accepted as long as it is secured and covered with a cargo net, and tonneau cover. It needs to be less than 200kg, accessible, and no flammable liquids (WD40, engine oil?), or empty fuel containers.

I’ve been meaning to set up some tie down points in the back of Larry anyway.

I've always dreamt of such accoutrements, done properly of course. Reviewing the fuel prices lately, they weren't too bad in the nully. I'll take at least one of the drums though. The throttle stick comes with integral kick release, and will help my gluteus maximum relax on the drive. Its a bit of red neck tech I got from a truckie hauling tuna streaky bay to port Lincoln in the 70s. Used a similar setup on the Toowoomba trip but this one is the beta model.

Does it double as a NASCO bonnet holder-upperer?

Asking for a friend… Grace’s ute keeps trying to brain me. :oops:
