Would love advice!

Hi Fellas (and girls),
I have a blue HZ wagon, powered by the meaty 202, with a 3-speed manual gearbox and the car is 100% stock, and in good condition. I was just chasing some advice from all u hardened veterans out there (Im only on my P's :( ) Ok, firstly, what kind of cost would I be looking at to put a set of 5-spoke mags on my HZ? Im not sure about wheel size, but I could find out.
Secondly, where in NSW (preferably near Tweed Heads) would I be able to get reliable parts such as extractors, exhaust etc? If I were to do my HZ up, what would u guys recommend, ie. what components should I change, keeping in mind that I'm more concerned about how she looks than how she purrs just now. And finally, where would I have any of the original moroon upholstery repaired/replaced?
Thanx heaps for ure time,
Ben'

overheating hx ute

Hey Guys
I am poor - want to know why? I am poor because of the bad advice that people keep giving me. I have a 307chev (with warm cam) in my beloved beautifully restored hz ute. The vehicle can run on both gas and petrol. But when on gas she heats up in traffic and dont cool down till rolling. To date I have: added an electric fan, changed the water pump, changed the thermostat for a lower one - with holes drilled in it, added a fancy quadruple core massive radiator and finally added a plastic flexi fan. Every time I embarked on each of these measures the gumball mechanics/shop assistants would tell that this will cure it for sure (where is the accountability - in my job if i got it this badly wrong i would be taken to court and literally sued for millions).
Anyway my next try will be to dump the mechanical fan, trawl the wreckers for a japanese twin sucking fan and shroud set up. Seems to keep the wifes twin turbo japper cool.
What do you all think? I have I missed anything? Advice and donations of large amounts of cash welcome.

Suspension tips for Statesman

Im looking to change the suspension on my WB Statesman to regain the limousine feel the vehicle deserves. It currently has too-firm Pedders shocks, and the orinal springs on it. Has anyone had a few goes at changing their suspension seeking factory softness but still some control (without spending too much $$) and discovered the perfect combination? If so, please share your wisdom with me.

Thanks,

Matt (matthew.higgs@studen...)'
