I just found this australian community, so g'day all fellow aussie.

I'm in the process of planning a pack build, which I'm aiming to be an all aliminium build.
After trawling through the forums reading as much as can on builds and dimensions etc, it occurred to me that I hadn't come across many (any) aussie builds. It may just be that I read over the thread and missed the authors location.

So my questions are, how many of you have scratch built packs? And if you have, how did you go with finding piping etc of the correct dimensions given our metric situation here?

Hi there mate :)

I am in Perth and did a scratch build,
mainly MDF, aluminium & PVC etc. there were a few pics along the way, but they were on Proptopia many years ago
happy to chuck a pic or 2 up here if you want
Brenton (Charlie Richter) also scratch built


Im looking at building one but would love to build one with someone in Melbourne that way we could save on any postage and also help each other with build.

Hey mate, I'm a Gippsland builder,
I did mine mostly out of aluminium, fibreglass and resin.
I'm currently in the process of repairs and rebuilds.
Its one hell of a costly process with postage and all.
