Want an EJ to do up?

Hey Guys,

Just flirting with the idea of getting rid of my half restored EJ Holden. Its in many peices at the moment, and have been working for the past few months getting her ready to be sprayed. All the upholstry has already been redone in "holden Deauville Blue" color scheme.

Any interest? If so, direct enquiries at ej@innerbevel.com

Thanks guys.

Center Console differances

Is there a differance in the consoles with the hinged lid at the front and the ones with just the coin slots? Is it just that center bit that is different, or is the hole console different?

Original radio fader control knob

Gday,
I have an original radio fader control knob I got out of a HZ Statsman. Just the knob, no pot. Is it worth anything to anyone? It's in A1 condition, great for that original resto.

General maintence

To get the ball rolling so to speak, one of the first questions I am asked (after the usual, Are you a Holden mechanic mate?) is , Can you have a look at me car I think something is wrong, or How can I get it to go FASTER ?
And the usual answers are ; Your right there is something wrong with your car. And there are heaps of ways to get it to go faster, it just depends how much money you want to spend. Remember the faster you go the more it costs , it is really that simple.
A common sense approach to your vehicle is by far the safest and best way to approach any repairs, mods, adjustments. I am amazed daily to see what people pay to have done to their vehicles, when with a bit of time and care you can save some serious $$ and learn something too, sounds like fun ?
I hope that I can answer questions you may have in regards to your HOLDEN.
I will be posting an article on routine servicing soon

Cheers
Mac

Another handy message board setting

After you click the comments link, Set the "Threshold" to "Nested" instead of "Threaded" and tick the save box...then refresh. This will save for next time if you are a member here. You will find what I am talking about between the article and the first comment after you click the comment link.

308 LJ Torana

I have been asked by a friend to inspect an LJ 2 door torana fitted with a 308 which he is looking at buying. The car is in Hobart and is in pieces, but is still registered (here in Hobart no yearly rego check is needed). I haven seen the car yet, only from a distance. What should I look for? I've been told the car has an engenner's report, also the car may be moved to Queensland, would they accept the Tasmanian engeneer's report? Any info would help thanks.

mods

Gday all. I know this has nothing to do with holdens, but my everyday drive car, a 180B Datsun is getting an upgrade. I haven't dicided yet but i'm either going to get rid of the 1800 and put in a C18 (1.8 from a silvia ), or i'll just rebuild the 1800 with a cam , some webbers, head work and exaust the good thing about the 1800 is that it will rev to 9000 rpm without problems . Even though this has nothing to do with holdens , I thought i'd let you know anyway.'
