Seats Galore...

Greetings fellow Holdenites,

Anyone got any info on aftermarket/Jap import/etc bucket seats in the Melbourne area. I believe there is a similar place in Sydney where they stock heaps and heaps of bucket seats, perfect for retrofitting into older cars and I was wondering if a similar business exists here in Melbourne.

Essentially, I am after a good set of late model bucket seat (most likely a "sports" type seat fitted to say a Jap car) to fit into an EH. Color is not important as I will be getting them re-trimmed anyway.

Anybody out there help?

Cheers,

My baby is injured :(

Just walked out the front to find that a guy who im getting a restraining order on tomorrow has payed me a little visit and attempted to put bricks through every one of my bloody windows. He's managed to get my drivers window nice n smashed up but missed all the rest and has left me with nasty brick indents and scratched up glass. I wish people like this would just die in as much pain as humanly possible to inflict. Whats even more of a piss of is that i spent the previous day cleaning and polishing the car after doing some mild engine work. What a way to start off the F*$king week.

Fuel for Red 202

Hey, I've got an LX Torana with a worked red 202 with triple SU's. I was wondering if its fine to put premium unleaded petrol in to it. If so, would this be better than using leaded petrol?

ebay

Gday,
i was wondering what others views were on an ebay 'problem'.
I've noticed the growing number of sellers puting the term "I have the wright to withdraw as advertised elsewhere"!
I have bid on a number of these items in the past and every one of them has been pulled off at the last minute.(well 6hours anyway) I have then had these tossers contact me trying to sell the items.(of which I have never purchased)
I think this is wrong and ebay shouldn't allow these people to put this statement on the items-if they are advertised elsewhere don't put them on ebay.
I am currently having an online blue with one of these people at the moment. Much fun hey Dillan!!

Hoping for a bit of info that will save me some time. Am changing from drums to discs on the rear of my hq. Got a wb stato rear end and brake proportioning valve ( connector assembly ) but am unsure about the vacuum servo unit, have been given conflicting info as to whether it needs changing or not. Info appreciated.
CQ Holden.

which carby for black motor?

I have just put a recond black motor in a HQ. I'm not happy with the varijet carby, mainly because the throttle body is clapped out. Is it worth persevering with, or is there a better carby option. (I don't want to go the whole hog with the efi setup thanks)

brake conversions

Gday fellas
Because my HG Premier has got drums all round i want to put disc on atleast the front. To do this i could go the disc setup for the HG or could i go to the HQ setup? Are the stud patterns the same to allow for thos conversion. It already runs 14" rims which is what the HQ's came wit. Any insight will be greatly appreciated

New Paint JOb

I have a few questions regarding paint work on the HG Kingswood. I think I have the Holden colour Cinnamon Brown(this is what I have been told) does anyone know what name and paint colour code is?

Also are there any online picture galleries of holdens around the same vintage as a HG. I am still deciding if I go with original poo brown (hence classic) or I change and go for a custom look. I know there have been many dicussions about Classic v Original. I thinks I needs two HG Kingswoods :-) If anyone would like to send me some pics that would be great as well.

Thanks from the Brown Hornet which may change its colour!

HR and LH into Ej

Just wonderng if it is true to have to move the 2 engine mounts on the hr front end when putting it in an ej with a 202 on top? If so where? I heard that its like 10mm forwards?

Also wondering if a 9" diff for a torana will sit as easily underneath as the front stub axles?

Any help will be praised and hailed.

BRAKE PROBLEMS

i was wondering if any wise men out there could give me some much needed advice:

late last week i got Midas to change my brake shoes and machine the drums (on the rear) all good (except the Bill!) then today i decided i better have another check under the bonnet and see brake fluid leaking from the master cylinder. you can see it dripping with your foot on the pedel. the fluid was high enough last week when they looked at it but now its low. they wont have anything to do with it but to me its a bloody bit coincidence that the master cylinder is now leaking after they've had a fiddle with it!! they want me to get the master cylinder done ("~$400"). what should i do? does anyone know any brake places in adelaide or have any sugestions for me to keep driving it til i save up the money?!
