Window Switches

Does anyone know if its possible to fix electric window switches and if so who would do it.

I bought a new driver's side switch for my HQ coupe the other day. The guys at the yard said it had been tested, but when I put it in it seems to only work intermittently. There doesn't seem to be any problem with the motor as the regulators work when you take the switch out.

I know the guys at the yard will undoubtedly tell me to get stuffed if I take it back - particularly given that it works some of the time - "there's nuthin wrong with it mate".

I want to buy an engine crane...

I have a couple of projects on the boil and I figure I may as well buy one rather than rent it a coupla times at $50 a hit. Does anyone know where I might be able to get a second hander ?

White Colour?

Alright. I just bought an 86 VL Commodore, and I'm trying to find out what the colour is so I can do a bit of touchup work, and also so I know what colour to paint the bonnet scoop. The car is white, and the colour code from the compliance plate reads "1J052-D", but I cant find any reference to this code in any stores. Any help?

Electric Fans for my HR

hey all, i'm putting air conditioning into my HR and i need to put in a condenser in front of my radiator, by doing this there isn't enough room to put a separate fan on the condenser unit. Thus i have to take out the old metal blade fan and put in electric fans.

so are there any tips as to what electric fans out of what model holden would work/fit.

cheers.

202 to 308 turbo

I currently have a 202 in my VB, but have been told about a VB SL/E being wrecked with a 5L V8 and turbo 400, not knowing much about cars, im asking yous what yous think. He is asking $1200 for the car (i dont want it, i wanna shove the motor in mine ), so i figure i could get the motor and turbo and basically the guts out of it for about $600-800, is this a good price?

also, im going to need to get it shoved in, i just wanted to know if it will be a straight-forward drop all the guts in and it'll work, or is there something i need to know. Im not sure what motor it is, but i figure it will have to be good to run the turbo, so something newer, so what i need to know is.........will my VB SL be able to fit in something that fit into a VB SLE that came with a V8 as standard.

HELP on 1977 HX Statesman

I have a 1977 HX Statesman with a pretty stock 308 in it. The last few weeks I will be driving and will lose acceleration and the car will stop. Electrics are still working - stereo on etc and we have serviced the carbi, fuel pumup, the fuel line and fuel tank... any ideas what else it could be? I was thinking it may be suffocating with exisiting exhaust but not sure...
PS I'm a female so be nice if i'm not making any sense!!

GTS/Sandman paint colours

Just wondering what type and shade of black the blackouts were painted on the Sandman/GTS models?

And due to the different nature of it, where would a paint mask for the Sandman be found?
