    A bit of a warning about that guy he is crazy, and he lists everything as located in ballarat but he is located in skipton. I would avoid him. I tried to deal with him once before and he is just awful.

    Shame, he has lot of nice cases which are getting hard to find these days. He would get a lot more money if he was willing to post.

    I'm also considering his listings and have almost taken the plunge in the past when travelling back through that neck of the woods.
    Just wondering how he was awful to deal with though?

    That reseller must be making good money if people keep buying off him.

    Re the skipton guy he was just awful to deal with, he won't even acknowledge any text, email, ebay messages or gumtree messages. He is one of those people that only wants to talk on the phone. He wouldn't even tell me anything about the stuff and at the end of it all he revealed he lives an hour further away then the ad says. This was like a year or two ago so he might be better now but I am not willing to give him a second chance.

    My heart was saying yes, my sedan and back were saying no. I've messaged the seller to ask what the model code is so I guess my back is gonna take another hit.

    Thing I have found with CRT listings, unless someone measures the viewing area they will often just go by the model code and convert to CM and round it.
    He says it's 29" and 75 CM but if the model code has "29" in it then that's the full physical tube size of 73.66CM, 'Viewable' it's probably just a 68CM. Which is exactly what I like/want.

    I still haven't recovered from the 80KG monster Trinitron I bought ~10 years ago - I realised on pick-up that it was way too big in every way but I was too proud to say so. The previous owner and I squeezed it into the back of my Astra, I nearly killed myself pulling it back out by myself.

    17" is the largest I'll consider these days :p

    I can do a 68CM Sony in the back seat of my Mazda 3 just have to lift it over the door handle/wheel guard, I have a sheet of ply that i use as a platform on the seat but this is still a 2 man job. It's a pain but I can remove it by myself when I get home.

    I may call off the purchase if the guy ends up being in an apartment building. The fact that it's the north side of the river is already breaking my gumtree collection rules.

    Yeah, my 29" Trinitron is 68cm viewable. Brilliant for the old games.

    But yeah, best bet is a ute with these things. Easy enough to get up and off a tray. :p

    I guess you're southside then? That sucks, I could have helped by using our yaris. That thing fits freaking anything in the back.

    Yeah south side, I got a mate with a landcruiser close to the city that I've pre-warned should it be a struggle. I miss my Excel sometimes - next car has to have a flexible boot space.

    Another Trinitron on the Northside. At $20 surely someone will snap it up! I would love to but just won't get the use out of vs. the size of the thing.
