dual circuit master cylinder

i have just bought a VL diff and im going to install it into my EJ with a CRS kit (it includes brackets to weld on so it will bolt in) all pretty straight forward, now my problem is i dont know to much about braking system conversions, it has an HR front end with LX torrie discs and will be running standard VL discs on the back i would like to fit a dual circuit master cylinder (if you've ever followed the brake lines back on a standard single circuit, it's a pretty dodgy setup, one line leads into a splitter where it goes off to the left and right front wheels the left then gets split again to go to the back wheels which would not be a very even distribution) anyway. have any of you ever fitted a dual circuit setup and if so what master cylinder did you use and did you have to get custom brake lines made(it will also be fitted with a VH44 remote booster)what problems did you run into etc etc.

Want to find our old HQ GCS-971 and EK CHP-269

My Old Man is desperate to find his old HQ he bought and ordered new back in the good old seventies. How can you track your old cars?? I went on to the RTA web site and did a make number plate thingy. and it stated the the original number plate is still active (or at least hasnt been handed in!)
We are going through old papers trying to find the chassis and engine number. All i can find out at the moment is

HQ Kingswood Sedan, White, 253 V8, Factory 4 Speed floor shift,
Pretty vague hey!

The Rego number was NSW GCS971.

Maybe its still attached to the HQ wreck the neighbours got in the paddock, or on the original low milage HQ you've had parked in the shed for the last 23 Years!!!

186 and 3 speed...

Hey guys, I'm thinking of selling the 186 and 3 speed all syncro box in my HG. The motor is still good(no rattles, revs hard, runs quiet) as is the box, which was reco'd 3 years ago when I put it in. It has a new clutch also.
How much do yas reckon it's worth???

Is $250 a fair price??

This is why i dont like parking my car where i cant see it

some dirty bastard badged it yesterday in FRANKSTON while i was chasing up a carby for the supercharger. i suppose i should expect that parking in frankston. they snapped this badge off at the "p" as you can see, and the other side was bent out but still there... i must have disturbed them and they couldnt get the 2nd one. too bad i didnt see who did it. they would have copped a 350 holley to the head.

I need maybe 3 clips for the front guard moulding on an EH but you can only buy them in packs of 50 from Rare Spares. If anyone has some laying around in their should and would be good enough to send a couple to me, I'll ask the auto gods to smile on you !

Exhaust

Hello all,
Well my engine is finally finished (for about a month now) and i am slowly getting it organised to get put in. Im first waiting on having my box rebuilt and then getting my diff and tail shaft organised. Hopefully upgrade my brakes this weekend. Am putting on Cross drilled/Slotted dba gold on the front with ferodo zero pads. Also getting some new calipers and wheel bearings. Want the whole lot done one after the other. As little waiting time as possible but i know its still gonna take a while.
My question is for mainly the guys here in the west as im questioning about some good exhaust shops to go to to get some prices on getting my exhaust done. Yesterday i went to a place in osborne park called custom exhausts. The guys there were straight down the line with me and gave me their honest opionion (or at least they seem to). I saw some photos of quite a lot of work that they have done and it looks awesome. I also wondering if anyone here has taken their cars there or know of people who have dealt with them. How did you/they find their pricing but overall the work and after care. I dont mind spending the little extra cash just as long as i know im getting good quality parts and good quality work done to my car and if there is a problem (lets hope not) will they f**k me around or just do the job.
