old school flames

Hello everyone. Haven't been on the site for a while and thought Id show you all my first attempt at some old school flames.
Trying to stay committed to a "have a go" outlook and with enormous help from my adorable wife we searched the net for some flame styles.
Then found out how to stencil, mark out ,tape up and method of painting and just had a go. This effort all stems from some "have a go"
rust repairs in the RH window scuttle area and both doors and then touching up with paint and finding the result was patchy. So I decided
to repaint in protec GT black. Painted the flames and then covered with some satin clear. Ive just got to put some sundry items back on
and Im rollin again. All up took me a week and a half. Hope everyone drools. Long live old holdens

A bit of a sticky situation VS COMM

Hi Guys
I'm wondering if you can help me.. I just got given, that's right GIVEN a VS commy on Gas.. All I have to do is keep paying the rego on it each year.. But I have one small problem with it.. The tip meter and the odometer has stopped working and was wondering if there is a trick to get them working again.. Everything else seems to be working on the dash tho.. Maybe a fuse, what do you guys think..

Kingswood HZ VIN location?

Hi guys,

I've just found a shell of a Holden HZ that I want to use for parts but I'm not sure if the numbers and tags are matching.

Can someone tell me where to find the VIN number location on the chassis? Is there only one location for it?

wires

Hi,all....
Finally got to start the red 253 that I just put into LX ( was a 173).
The 253 and wiring came from an HX auto,and all plugged in and connected up and ....it started!!!
Considering I have never owned/played with a v8 before,I amazed myself!!! lol.
But curious what the wire is ( see pic) ..sort of a rubbery plug,connected to harness up behind brake booster,with plastic plug halfway along.
Anyone know what its supposed to be for??
Cheers
Dusty
p.s. thanks to all who have answered my queries over the last 5 yrs...between you guys,my handbooks and Google I can work ( most) things out. :-)

My whinge !

Just watched an episode of a show called Classic Restos on youtube ( don't get this on free to air in Tassie ). Not a great stickler for minor faults in tv shows but the host (Fletch ) probably needs to do a bit more research. First he interviewed a guy with a 48/215 and stated the 138 was a great engine that never changed until the EH. Pretty sure the humpys had a 132.5 ?. Next he repeatedly referred to an beautiful EH Premier as a premyeeeah !. And Just to top it off he said a very neat hg had the proper original decals on the "rocket" cover!. Is this guy for real or a piss take?. FFS your getting paid good coin get it correct. Grumpy old fart had his vent now I'm going to bed !.

253 Stroker

Hi All,
Anyone stroked a 253?
The 253 is getting rebuilt anyway, thinking about getting it stroked. other than buying the necessary parts, is there any mods to be done to the block to accept it?
And no, not interested in getting a 308.
thanks
