HG drums to discs.

I've just bought a top condition HG with drum brakes all round.I've alredy bought a disc brake booster,front discs (with stub axles & calipers). Apart from connecting the booster to the manifold is there anything else I have to do? Do I have to change the brake lines and proportioning valve? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers.

FOR SALE

Well looks like i'm saying goodbye to my first car, sooner than i thought but thats life. Its practically a statesman deville put into a 1984 wb styleside. Its running a stock blue 308, 600 Holley, 2 1/2 mercury exhaust, statesman interior, doors, bonnet and 12 slotter mags. Pictures can be seen on www.devilleute.tk , the odometer reads 300,000km and i've spend around $10,000 on it to date. I would like to know a good asking price and if anyone here is interested in it. Would rather see a holden fan take over than a rice burner kid.

dissapointed with CRS

for those who have been following recent posts, you'll be aware i have purchased a blower kit from castlemain rod shop for my EH. i have to say after hearing only positive things about them i'm a bit dissapointed with my dealings with them.
after unpacking the kit i discovered that a few things were missing, stainless steel hose clamps, and rubber couplings.. u may think, well these are small items, i should just go out and pick up new ones for a few dollars. but thats not the point.. i paid money for these items to be included in the kit and they werent. i emailed the rod shop and they appologised and have sent out the parts, with any luck i should receive them tomorrow. onto the next part...

dash swap

Giday
Im in the process of taking out a badly damaged dash in a mates HZ and replacing it with another one in better condition.
How ever later on I went over to pick up some other parts at a mates place here was an old skool Statesman devile parked up getting its 308 whiped out along with its trans and diff...and being striped for parts.
I had a look and the dash on the Statesman and it is mint all the gauges there and had an awesome wood grain finish.
My question is would this dash fit in either a HZ or HQ utes?
Cheers all.

carbie swap

Steve,
Re your response a few days back, yes the quaddie has made a big difference on petrol ( Ultimate ), gets off the mark better and responds when you plant it, but not as good on gas, my 253 with 2 barrel BX runs the same with either gas or Ultimate, need to work on the wagon to try and even it out a bit,when its doing 100ks+ per day a few bucks saved using gas is worth having but ya still need that buzz eh!

Cheers
Ken

Getting it straight

This question is open to anyone who has experience in body work, but it is specifically aimed at Streetneat.

My HG has about 100 car park dents in each door and I was wondering what the best way is to repair them. Should I slap on a tin of bog? Should I scrap the doors and source better ones? They are quite rust free, apart from a few spots, and money IS an issue.

OR should I save lotsa dough and get a panel beater to fix them?

Cheers
Ant

Fiberglass flip front fb/ek

Just scored 2 fiberglass gaurds. Intended to join these with a bonnet etc and make a flip front.Ive found a fellow at SA Fiberglass who will make a complete front for about $600. This would have to be stronger and lighter. Anyone had experience or interested in either?
