What is the law regarding taking home car parts/stuff with me back to australia?

is there like a certain amount of part/s where they can charge me for tax?

or what ever I can fit in my bags?

I reckon your best bet is to ring up Qantas or another airline, I'm sure they'd be able to help?

I used to go to hong kong and bought all these electronics

and what I did was just tell the immigration that all of those electronics with me are all second hand and told them that they are very cheap.

Apparently you can also tell them its a gift or better you can gift wrapped them and no questions asked

Gift wrapping wont work with customs, but it is fits in your suit case chances are they just wont care anyways if you dont declare it.

I am in Japan at the moment and havent really seen any shops of interest but i havent really had much of a chance to look. Will be going to Tokyo motor show this weekend though.

When you land Razor go pick up a copy of "Autoworks" magazine, it's widely available even in the convenience stores like 7-11 and what not. It's a great magazine that covers both old cars like ours as well as newer ones too (AEE86, Silvia/180SX/240SX, etc). In it you will find TONS of ads for places that cater to our cars. Full page ads nine times out of ten include a map at the bottom with the nearest JR or subway stop and how to get there.

You can use the phone number area codes as an indication to whether they're in Tokyo, Yokohama, etc and then it's just a matter of getting on the right train in the right direction of course.

Super Autobacs on Tokyo Bay at the Shinonome stop off of the Yurikamome line if I recall correctly (check subway map for confirmation) is one of the biggest. It IS cool but doesn't really carry much stuff for older cars like ours...

They do have a great partnership with a bookstore which is located on their top floor. I forget the name of the bookstore...

Fun to go there and look at the cool cars in the parking lot.

But you won't find old Z or old Skyline stuff... You really have to go to the specialists which have already been mentionned in this thread. There's a couple more I've visited but right now at least their names escape me.
