Hey guys

Been away from here for a while doing other things but back into it again. Great to see some more NZ 'Boxers' out there, must get this NZ Boxstock thing going

Hello again - anyone near Kapiti coast or Wellington I can get together with to chat and jam (once the Taniwha is built). 

Comment by Tim Brown on October 16, 2013 at 8:26pm

Kia Ora people: Just caught onto this and about to start planning a build All seems sort of straight forward but "The Neck" bit and fretting. Any ideas and advice really appreciated.

Anyone heading Tauranga way, stop in for a cuppa
