EH to HR front end

I have managed to grab a cheap HR front end with LH Torana disks fitted. I need to know a workshop in Melb. that can do a professional job of fitting the unit. Also, is the stud pattern different between the original EH and the LH? I have buy mags anyway, but if they are I should look at changing the disk at the rear? If so, to what?

New reproductiuon EH sedan rear windscreens

Subject: EH Sedan Rear Screens now available!!!!!!

EH Holden Car Club of Victoria Inc.

Hello Holden lovers,

Last night, Monday 28th at the EH Holden Car Club of Vic monthly meeting David Ryan from Rare Spares turned up with 2 brand new remanufactured EH Sedan rear screens.

Believe me when I say they looked fantastic.

No more looking in your rear view mirror at a scratched glass.

Trial fits have been done and production has started.

David brought along 1 clear glass and 1 tinted glass. Not tinted as in dark tinted but tinted as in the green uv tint that is standard in new cars. If you wish for a tint to match your tinted side glass it can be organised. The demister side of this project has not yet been set up although as soon as David has a few orders of the ready available screens and can recoupe some of the costs so far he will start design work.

As some of you will be aware it costs around the $3000 dollar mark for moulds to be cast to produce a windscreen.

What we need now is orders.

They are $225 each of which $10 will be donated back to your club and only available through David Ryan not at Rare spares outlets. (although I am sure the counter staff are aware of them and will be happy to oblige if you ask)

David can be contacted at Rare Spares (RSP Australia) in Melbourne on:
Telephone: (03) 9305-4000 Facsimile: (03) 9305-3520
20-22 Truck City Drive, Campbellfield VIC 3061
or via dryan@rarespares.net.au

David has personally put his own money into this venture and does need to recover it, so lets try and push them for him so we can get the demister model up and running and to prove to him that it was a viable option. Your help in this area would be much appreciated. Lets face it, no rear glass is made for any other model of early Holden. The EH is the chosen one!!

If you have any questions or concerns please don hesitate to contact David or myself. Keno 0417 186 078.

Lets get the ball rolling.

Thanks

Keno (secretary EH Holden Car Club Vic.)
