HQ chrome

G'day fellas,

Finally bought the HQ monaro, but there a few issues which i expected and which are pretty minor (I think). So the new project beings.

There's small crack just behine the left hand control arm. a mate of mine reckins this is pretty common. should i go to an engineer to get it welded or is there a better way to fix it.

I'm also after a few parts. Its got electric windows which are stuffed and need replacing. I'm going for original winders. Are all HQ regulators the same? If not does anyone have a set of HQ regulators they want to sell? Does anyone have and want to sell the chrome trim which covers the front window rubbers on a HQ. I only need the top strip.

Gearbox change

Hi Lads

Im new to this site and given that my problem lays with a series 1 VR im not sure that this is the place to be posting questions but here we go: Ive currently got a VR s1 V6 AUTO which is making some nasty nasty grinding sounds under load at 100 to 110 kph... I was looking at replacing the Auto with a 5 speed manual ... ( I like manuals) my local wrecker has the pedals, housing clutch, box, tailshaft etc etc but he was unsure about whether or not I required any electronics? So my question is do I require any engine managment system changes and does the box require any electronics?
If anyone has any info on this it would be appreciated.

ATTENTION MODERATORS

How about unbanning me from your site? Too much to ask? Yeah I thought so. Oh well just to keep you informed Ive got a computer nerd at work cooking up a virus to crash your server bad enough to keep it down for a month, you could avoid all this hassle by unbanning me but I guess you don't want to do that.

New guide finished, this one is using a second hand blue motor electronic ignition bought from RedSix. A more detailed guide than the original I think so I'd recommend reading them both ;)

gearbox changes

hey all. i have just developed some trouble with my four speed manual box, and ive had enough of it. so im wondering what i can swap that over with that will be more reliable and probably a bit better onthe fuel and power....i have heard that supra boxes will often [Naughty Pottyword] emselves if u put too much power into them or put a decent load in the back...is this so. however, do celica boxes also have this fault? if so, what would be the best fit for a gearbox goin onto a 308? any help appreciated. thanks guys
