Got Engine and Gearbox....

Hi all,

Yesterday I picked up a 3.3 EFI motor and transmission (from VK) complete for $350 from a lovely chap who even trailered it over to my home for me! Engine was reco'd $30K ago and gear box is good so I just have to replace a few gaskets and clean her up and she will be in the car.

The conundrum is that I need to pain the car before I put the motor in... and I need a few bits to make it worthwhile. Does anyone near Brisbane have any of the following:

VK Wagon Tailgate
Centre section of VK Front bumper
VK rear bumper

If you know of anyone who can sell me these bits in good nick for a good price then let me know at kim.j.robertson at gmail.com or on my mobile 0413 773 842

sneeky rust

Heres a tip that might seem self evident to many, but it wasn't to me.

rust gets into your doors from behind you bash strip. On my HX the chrome running the length of the car mounts into the doors with plastic plugs (it isn't just stuck on). To my surprise when I set about striping this for a cleaner look about half of the holes had begun to bubble with rust from behind the chrome. It stands to reason that moisture would be traped there but it never occured to me to look. now I have the job of not just neatly filling little holes, but carving out 50cent sized cancers. so You might wanna have a look in behind there if you have the same type of chrome mount.
