I am travelling with a mate who has a crack in his front axle that he needs to v-out and weld in some reinforcement. He has had a string of bad luck with his car (GU patrol) and would like to find a workshop with spare room in Alice Springs where he could do this work himself. Does anyone have any suggestions who he could ask?

Sometimes you just have to let someone else do it - This is one of those times I would suggest. Owners of workshops have overheads that need to be paid for and have to consider that it is too risky with WHS Legislation. Now if you were near me you could use my shed but......... Cheers Tony

You need to give out a lot more info than that mate (or matette)
1. Start with a name or call sign......
2. Is your mate a qualified welder, or at least very expierienced at welding in workshops?
3. Do you have your own gear and are just after are shed.
4. Are you supplying consumables and materials, or are you prepared to pay for them.
5. Are you planning on taking the part in to a workshop and welding it or do you plan on pulling the vehicle down there too?
6. How long is it going to take?

Im not saying people wont help out, but think of it this way.....
If I turned up in a sydney restaurant with the Mrs and kids and asked if we could borrow their kitchen I reckon I would have do I bit more explaining than "Im having a bit of bad luck" before they let me in?

Ps "V-out and weld some reinforcement into an axle"??????? Your mate is either , very good or very game?

Give us some more info.

You gotta feel sorry for these nissan drivers, they need mates in every town !!!

Yeah, the no handle thing was a bit strange hey?
