Default Suitcase of parts back from OZ?

So as you know I am sending my girl to OZ in Jan as a gift. Can she bring back parts in a suitcase? Anyone want to jump in on some smaller parts? Any advice?

I'd be interested in a Treg multi-point axis hitch setup, depending on the going price.

she will be required to declare anything she purchases while there. I do not recall the tariffs on goods from down under. We went through customs pretty fast so I don't think it was a big deal. The airline will probably be the first to complain to to the extra weight. I'd just have her ship stuff back via boat mail.

Just kicking a old thread. When she goes down I am looking into this Place. They have the visors we need and I forget all what we needed.

Hmmm...I don't think so - Same size/shape as the overhead console is that we will be installing the not to distant future. There was a thread on MUD about this item - found it HERE

CDan says it will fit although he has concerns about heat...I was thinking it would make a great spot to put the Ham radio head unit dealyo, which I don't have

FYI: Ham radios put out a lot more heat than CBs. If you don't give your radio adequate ventilation, its life will be shorter.
