hr front end mounts

i have recently removed the engine mounts on my HR front end to relocate them to fit an EH, but accidently damaged one of them to the point where i would rather not use it incase it collapses. the front end was already modified to take vl rack and pinion so i do not want to send it to rare spares or CRS for an exchange, does anyone know if CRS etc make engine mounts ready to weld on?.
also i would prefer not to use my EH outrigger as the car was hit in the front many many years ago and the outrigger is slightly bent, does anyone make replacements?

P.S. i'm not some idiot who doesn't know what he's doing, i have modified a few hr frontends, the mounts are normally quite straightforward to cut off, bend one of the tabs the other way and cut off the bottom corners but this is the first one i've stuffed up,

H.X Caprice Front Bumper

Does anyone know where I can get a good front bumper for a HX Caprice and what it should be worth. Mine has 2 rusty holes in it from driving lights or cocky catcher.

Has anyone put a Fuelstar on their red 253 V8?

Good day, I have a HX 1 ton ute with a red 253 V8. I am thinking of putting on a Fuelstar cyclinder to lower the fuel use and increase power. Has anyone tried this and what was your experience?

Secondly, I have a LPG setup (except tank) that came with the ute. Will I lose power putting this on? Is it worth the effort?
Thanks great site and information.

VL Nissan Engine to 1980 Holden Ute

Has anyone installed the VL Nissan Engine into a 1980 Holden Ute.

If so does all the power steering and front end suspension fit in and how successful was the conversion.

Thanks

Connecting the Coil

Hey all,

I'm new in here and I've got a question. I just replaced the inlet manifold gaskets and I've only got to wire the coil back up and then I'm done. I've connected the yellow (to ignition switch) wire to the positive terminal and the black (to dizzy) wire to the negative terminal, but I can't for the life of me remember where I disconnected the black wire coming out of a small electrical component (resistor?) strapped to the back of the coil from. If anyone could have a quick look on their red 253 and let me know that would be much appreciated.

Where can I get Interior Design Film and soft putty??

I've just spent the day doing the rounds looking for the interior contact film (laminate?) to cover the dash and a couple of bits on the console. The only stuff I can find is checkerplate. Nice as it is, we're looking for something a little more sedate. Originally the pattern was more tortise shell, but we're looking for more gts checkered pattern. Any ideas where I can find this stuff?
