Bonnet Dragons

The wife likes dragons, since she's off for a 3 week break I thought I'd do a job I told her I was going to do a long time ago, wack some dragons on the bonnet for her where my white stripes are on mine. There's some images in the "My Cars" section of my shed.

You'll have to excuse my description here but I think it makes the car look like a cheap tattoo'd chinese prostitute, it does customise the car though which is what my wife wanted and now she's got more dragons (another thing she wanted). In the next few days I intend to paint her rims a vivid white, paint her hub caps and dress rims black and add them, and also I want to look at adding the external rear black venitian and repainting the roof racks. When all that is done sure the car will still be rusty and dented but it'll definitely be unique on the road.

Not happy!! Need advice and parts

I went out today and washed the ute with the pressure cleaner only to find that the blast found new rust holes. And not small either. The rear quarter panels right at the back (both sides) are rusted at the back of the wheel arch and are bogged up.
I have rust on both sides of the back window in the corners.( the long bar itself that runs longways under the window is fine. The doors have rust and a bit on the corner of the roof is bogged (looks to have been dented and not fixed properly. The drivers side floor is also rusted but is going to be repaired next week.
Everything else looks great. like the interior and xu1 202 are imaculate. What should i do? Should i abandon it and get another one or should i buy some panels and repair the rust?. I haven't got alot of money either so i'm pretty stuck on what to do. Does anyone have any rust repair panels lying around for a hj - wb? or doors. Help or advice on what i should do would be great,
cheers,
hz_gts

Rhino Linings - Ute lining system

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has had thier use tub lined with a Rhino ute liner?

It's not just a drop in liner like the regular ones, it is actually a spray on plastic sort of system.

See the website for more details:

HQ lights in dash

The dash lights in my HQ Kingy are not very bright when switched on. It appears that the lights lose their brightness the longer i drive.

What would cause this and how do i rectify this problem?

I have owned the car for many years and the problem appears to have only occurred recently, but then again i dont drive the vehicle much of a night time as i have another vehicle.

Any assistance much appreciated

What colour coolant? Fan belts?

Hi all, I've finally got a spare moment to work on the ute's cooling system. I've removed and sent off the radiator to be checked/recored, and will be replacing my old metal fan with a Flex-a-lite plastic fan when it goes back in.

My first question relates to the type of coolant to use. I remember reading here that Holden red engines should use orange coolant, not green. Is that right and for what reason? Does anyone have a particular brand they have found to be best? My engine is a 179HP, mild cam, twin strombergs and stock radiator.

Second question: I'm also replacing the fan belt as it's looking a little tired and I figured I may as well do it while everything is off and easy to access. When I went to buy a new one however, the size recommended for an EH is totally different to the one already on the car. Would this just be because an alternator has replaced the old generator?

Cheers guys...hope everyone has had a great xmas.
Cheers, Scott
