HT Prem Mouldings paint removal.

Hi guys.
Quick Question:

Ive got some HT premier mouldings for my car... complete sets, both sides.
They are in pretty good condition, except the black paint in the middle of the strips has mostly peeled off or flaked away... Except for a few pieces.
I want to strip the paint of completely and repaint them.
What should i use to remove the paint that wont hurt the steel/chrome?
Thinners? Acetone? Paintstripper?

cheers
poohey

Fuel surge?

Finally took the HG down the 1/4 mile at calder park last night - woulda been more fun if she hadn't decided to start acting up on the strip.
Got her there, did a wicked burnout - didn't think shed go that well.. staged up and took off... first rev out full no probs, second rev rev sputter rev cut-out rev sputter sputter, third rev rev cut-out sputter rev rev, over the line and cursing at my [Naughty Pottyword]house time - 19 secs or somesuch.
Took it down the strip 3 times and same thing with all - all starts sputtering at half track, I can think it's one of three things.

1: The fuel pump can't keep up with the fuel demands of the carby.

NOS for 202

hey people, i already know NOS is rather stupid, but i was just wondering if anyone here knows much about NOS, and knows whether or not a 202 could handle just the basic kit. We're talking about maybe a 75hp increase. Thanks.

HG Premier rear Venetian

G'Day, excellent site. I was just wondering if anyone has or knows where to get a white rear venetian for my HG premier? Rare Spares want about $270 which is more than I'm willing to pay. I'm in Queensland so if anyone could help me out it would be greatly appreciated.

VB Commodore, possible modifications - hotting it up

hey everybody, thanks for looking

ok, i recently bought a VB Commodore, 1979, 6 cylinder 3.3 litre, its in reasonable condition, it goes fine, and it was a score at $300 (i then got it valued at $1500+). Anyway, I'm basically asking for any suggestions as to what modifications i can get that will basically increase my horsepower, or generally make it louder and more impressive (yes, i am 16 years old haha). It drives like a dream and already goes alright, but i was just wondering what i can do to make it faster or more importantly have more acceleration.

I've been told that, without about $7000 to spend, i cant get a turbo or supercharger as they would need a completely new engine. What other options do yous think i have, as far as things like blowers or fuel injection, or as a few people are doing with older cars these days NOS Nitrous Oxide kits. Could you please give a *rough* price range with each suggestion, as im looking at options that are basically under $1000, but any suggestions will do no matter what price (i might do overtime lol)

Molasses

Has anyone used a Molasses and water mix to strip panels or parts before ? If so how did it go and what mix did you use ? Or are there any other other products I can dip some parts in to clean them up for painting. I dont want to sandblast them as I'm on a budget.
