Here's the HX Wagon

This is what I'm going to swap my HG for. It currently has a dipstick spitting 202, 350 Holley and extractors, with a cloumn auto. I'll probably put a stock Stromberg on until I get a V8.
The stockers are staying, they look better than any mags would on this car. I may change to a T-bar shift if I put a 308 in.

HT Carby

Hi

I was wondering... The carby on a stock 186...is that suppose to be a BXUV-2? I thought BXV-2 carbs were for 161 motors and had smaller channels?
Anyone clear this up for me?

Cheers, have a good and safe new year.

NOT Chamios Paint Code!

Hi all

Well, after much confusion, I rang PPG about the paint code from my HT and guess what? It isn't Chamios as some have said (even some Monaro people did, contrary to the info in their site). It's Pinaroo Beige! Not that it excites me, but at least now I will get it right. Now to work....

Cheers

HT STUD PATTERN CHROMIES FOR WILLYS COUPE

I've finally decided to replace the old ROH mags on my Holden-bodied 1938 Willys Coupe. They are 14" with HT stud pattern. I'd like to go for some sort of "smoothies"
preferably with the inner painted body colour, chrome moon hubcab and chrome
outer. Alternatively I suppose I could go for all painted steel wheels with
moon cab and a dress rim or ring or whatever its called. I'm thinking 15x7"
would be the go. I have found some over here at Mr Mag but unfortunately the
bolt pattern is Chev or Ford and I've got a bad feeling about using one of
those adapter plates. An example of the style of wheels I like is at

VK Calais Digital Dash Fitment - request advice?

Gday, I have a question regarding fitting up a VK Calais Digital Dash in place of the standard gauge Dash as fitted standard to VK's.
I have a VK Wagon fitted with 308/Trimatic (Was 202/Trimatic) and have purchased 2 VK Calais Dashes from ebay in the hope of making sure one works and fitting while keeping the 2nd for spares.
As these are still in transit I haven’t had the chance to suss out how they’re fitted but have been told by the ever helpful mates (NOT) that I will need a special section of the loom to plug the Dash into place and also an electronic Speedo drive setup?
Is this correct? If so can anyone maybe put me in contact with someone who has a Dash Loom and Electronic Speedo drive setup?

EK A PILLAR WANTED

Hi chaps and chapets, I'm restoring my EK and rather than weld the badly rusted sections of the left A pillar I was wondering if anyone had a good section I could graft in.
I would need the pillar as well as the lower section that joins the scuttle and a section of the roof rail.
I would send pictures to clarify the section I'm after if anyone thinks they may be able to help.
I'm in Moss Vale NSW [120k south of Sydney] and would be happy to do the surgery to remove the section as I have a generator and grinder as well as oxy.
If you can help or put me onto a cheap posibility please let me know.

Removing tailgate handle on panelvan - permanently

Howdy,
Has anyone permanently removed their T-bar handle from a panel van tailgate? Mine needs replacing, but I'd rather remove it completely, have the hole welded up and install a boot release style mechanism.

I'm not sure what's easiest but a couple of ideas could be - use a couple of electronic solenoids or have a cable leading to the cabin with a pull lever (ala older boot releases on sedans). I think I'd have to convert the old struts to heavy duty gas struts aswell.

If anyone has any more suggestions or even details on the above ideas would be well appreciated. Photos would be very handy.
