I changed my mind...again

I washed th HG today and I drove the wagon I was going to swap for it and I decided to keep the blue beast. It's just got so much more character, and sex appeal, and coolness...and it was born in 1970 like me.
I just love this car, I'm a goose to think about getting rid of it.

Air conditioner instalation

Hey all, Just wondering if anyone knows much about Air conditioners. When I bought my HQ tonner, I was told it had all the in dash parts and wiring fitted and that I only needed a compressor and condenser to get the old gal pumping some cold air. Does anyone have any info or know where I can find some diagrame's, drawings etc.
Thanks

My Dad was right about 4cyl's.

My Dad, who has been a Mechanic all his life & a real man's man has not 1 good word to say about foreign cars;ie Japanese, Korean etc.He chewed me a new arsehole years ago when I was foolish enough to buy 1.He told me "the money u save on Petrol will be the money u spend on parts".Dad was rite...bloody thing was a nightmare.Head Gasket went on it twice & not to mention oodles of other bloody things.Dad says they're ok ovaseas where there's not a 1000kms between capital cities & the highest permissable speed on their freeways is around 80kms.They know well enuf to flog them off 2 us silly bugga

Rice Rocket Rims

Dunno wat a Mitsubishi FTO rim even looks like, but I'd say no because simply for the fact that if they did fit then all these ova dun-up grocery getters tearing around the place would be wearing HSV rims.I mean to say you only have to see sum of these rice rockets pilot's taste in ova-modifying cars & that would tell you....P.S. I fill up my Calais with leaded & give it a treat once in a while & feed it a jap car for protein...

Need help doing a work guide

Image: 

I'm having trouble getting this damn car alarm wired up (and hence finishing the work guide) and need some help. The diagram above is what I am looking at, I have the central locking working perfectly but the alarm is giving me trouble, mainly getting it to manage the central locking but I also have a problem where after arming the alarm goes off after a few seconds, so I have to leave it disarmed!

The diagrams for the alarm are:
(Click Here for Full Diagram)
(Click Here for Central Diagram)

I have no idea which alarm to central locking diagram I should be aiming at for starters, I am thinking the third. The door switches seem to be the cause of my alarm sounding after a few seconds, at the moment what I have done is wired one of the wires to the switch and the other to earth.

So I have two problems:
1) The switches on the HR seem to be earthed when the door is open and open circuit when the door is closed, mine don't run anywhere else so what should I try there?
2) Which diagram should I use for the central locking and how would I wire that as per the diagram above?
