Door Handle Removal Tool

Image: 

Since there has been a few queries recently about removing door trims and methods to get the handles off I thought I'd post an image of the tool that can be used to remove the clip that holds the handle on. I'll do a guide on how to do the whole job in the next few days also, for the guys that have never had to do it before.

Lowering

ok guys, i went to pedders yesterday, and asked about getting the eh lowered. i received a quote of $497 to get the front coils, and lowering blocks in the rear fitted. Does this sound like a reasonable price?

Missing tailgate letter 'N'

Does anyone have a spare 'N' to suit the HOLDEN on the tailgate of an HK Kingswood station wagon? It seems the restoration sales places around here will only sell a full set of letters. Ohterwise, if anyone needs only 1 or 2 letters, let me know and maybe we can split a full set.
And another thing - does anyone have (in good condition) the channel that the rear window (on a station wagon) sits in, that attaches to the winding mechanism cogs (does that make sense?). I mean the length of steel lined with rubber that the glass actually sits in.

Best 202 Crank

Hey all,

Just wondering if anyone knows if you can use a 202 Blue Crank in a 202 Red Motor?
I have never heard of it being done but this blue crank I pulled out is in AWESOME condition and a mechanic mate seems to think a blue crank is better. I think otherwise...

Jag Convert

Have just bought a Jag with a 308 conversion. The engine
has factory electronic ignition. I'm assuming it's a late model turbo block. Does anyone know of a website that can tell me what it's out of given the engine number?

Points conversion

Anyone know of a good auto electrician in Sydney to convert my HQ to electronic ignition. I'm thnking its easier to buy an HEI kit rather than regraphing one out of a VK.

I confess to not knowing much, but there's some apprentices out there that've seriously got no idea. If you could only get them to put the quotes in writing.

Cheers

VL Front Seat Lumber Adjustment

My front passenger seat on the VL has a buggered lumber support adjustment wheel. You turn it but it doesn't adjust the position of the seat. Has anyone had this problem and know what needs to replaced or looked at in the guts of it? Cheers.
