Surprise Dad on Xmas Day!

Surprise Dad on Xmas Day!
I'm sure Dad would LOVE it if you lashed out and surprised him by secretly fitting at least one of these to his old Holden!
Get in early and accessorise your Dad's old Holden while he is passed out on Xmas Eve with a stubby in his hand watching reruns of The Xmas Grinch and be the envy of your friends when he drops you off at school!
MAN! Can you just see his face now? Ouuuuwwweeeeee Yes Sirie BOB I sure can!

Xmas Surprise #1
Xmas Surprise #2
Xmas Surprise #3
Xmas Surprise #4

"DISCLAIMER"
And despite the knockers, I know there is more than a few closet fans here who will be spending a fair whack of time in at least one of these sites!!! LOL
No need to thank me, just doing my festive duty! ;)
Cheers guys!

What sort of gearbox do I have?

A while ago I bought a four speed box to go behind my 186, I'd like to fit it into my HG, but I need to know what it is first of all. The fella that sold it to me said it was an M20 or an Aussie box, I can't remember exactly.

What I do know:
It has 'ZL' printed on it in yellow.
It has 'HOLDEN 8' cast into the drain plug side
It has 'HOLDEN' and the number '9938381' cast onto the inspection cover side (the bit that has the selector forks on it).

Any ideas?

202

can anyone tell me who owns any holden with a hot six what sort of performance they get when they pull up at lights and some nerd in a lancer wants to race. my eh with all the good 202 fruit is unfortunately becoming less and less successful against later model cars - sure im driving a classic but the $$ i have spent on the engine dont seem to equate with the hp these guys have for the money they spend - actually i have given up - heartbreaking ....

Red 6 Manifold

Hi
Can anyone please tell me what the holes at each end of the manifold are for, as shown in the photo? The twin strombies are running very rich, and I will be turning my attention to them shortly, but the manifold just looks wrong, like something should be attached to the two holes!!! Any help that you guys can offer would be much appreciated! BTW, vehicle is an HQ ute with 202 and M20
cheers- Tim

Have i been ripped????

Gday all just looking for an opinion took my wb ute to what i thought was a respectable western sydney panel shop about 4 months or so ago to fix usual cowl rust r/h sill rust and straighten out and a respray.Quoted between 5-6k which i thought not to bad after 2 other quotes for 8-10k and 10-12k.It leaked like a siv on drivers floor.They replaced my cracked windscreen fixed all rust and gave her a new coat of paint.Problem is ive had 2 go back 3 times so far,now remember i supplied all rust repair sections and all rubber kits but rust in doglegs was only repaired on the outside of body and the 2 inch holes inside were covered up.Second time to remove more overspray that wasnt removed the first time and to have doors re-adjusted coz they wouldnt close unless u slammed em and also to fix more rust that wasn't repaired properly.Told them it still leaked on drivers floor and they said ok we'll have another look and that was that.Biggest prob with that is i cant put my new carpet in car for fear of getting waterlogged and i cant even wash the car without getting about a litre of water on floor.Im not whinging,they did a great job of bodywork just little niggling things that give me the [Naughty Pottyword]s!!I run my own business and its my work vehicle so its hard 2 be without it for any amount of time but i just feel i've been ripped off after paying what i think was a fair amount of money for a more than fair job which i don't think i've got.
