Heater core leaks

Hi guys & girls,

Found a nice little coolant leak from my heater core the first time I used it. Now it's been a while since I installed it, so I can't remember if I can remove the core from inside the cabin, or only from the engine bay side. Anyone got any ideas? It's a V8 HZ ute with a/con.

Thanks, Steve.

HX DASH

after pulling my dash apart TWICE today to install my CD deck and other things i found a 6x9 speaker mounted upwards in the dash of my kingswood. i havent noticed speakers here before. was this a factory standard in these cars or most cars? does anyone know how to rip these out and replace them?

cheers!

Make an offer

This is a very rare black vinyl benchy with no holes in the top for headrests. No rips in the front, but only two tiny ones at the back. The ashtray is at the bottom of the back of the seat.
Has HQ-HZ runners.
I was considering converting it to a lounge seat, but have nowhere to keep it. I would rather see it go ta good home than my cats clawing holes in it.
Can anyone make a decent offer??

help with HZ modifications

LOWERING: any tips for lipping front guards prior to dropping in some super low springs with 8" mags and low profile BFG 245/50/14's ? I've considered low springs instead of super-low but my lowering blocks are big and the rims/wheels still leave a substantial gap.

INTERIOR: have most things straight, need bench re-upholstered so choosing colour scheme at the moment. I've got themes in mind but need advice re colours that can be easily matched with a low budget - as follows. Need to replace vinal on bench and re-do roof lining. Need to respray dash and glv/box. Replace or respray door lining/trims? Also need help with large part of dash removed for previous cd player. The person butchered it so I'm trying to work out who is best suited to repair plastic damage and fill in many drilled holes? I'm thinking cream or honeycombe type colours. Should I just speak to upholsterers and stop wasting everyones time?

5 speed clutch cable??

I want to know about the 5 speed conversion kits that CRS/Rod HAdfield sells - I bought the bellhousing off a bloke and threw in a celica 5 -speed in to my hx wagon then when it came to connecting the clutch cable it was late at night and me and my mate who were doing the job were a bit pissed and sick of being covered in grease so we connected the cable straight through after modifying the little bit on the cable that looks like a skateboard wheel. Anyway the deal is the clutch is really short and close to the floor. my mate reckons its dodgy but I've gotten used to it. what I want to know is how does the instructions in CRS's kit say to do it???? my mate reckons the funny looking little assembly of levers off the old 3 -speed would work but I thought I'd ask you guys before I go and get all greasy again.
