Vp Commodore, Awesome conversion car.

Hey guys

I live in brisbane and have recently aquired an accident damaged vp commodore for a hk conversion, anyway plans have changed, and im left with this very nice car with a smashed drivers side front,

the car is in perfect running order, has done 210,000km and i had started out by pulling the dash out, and all the wiring is still there and the car is in tact, i since gave the console to a mate for a project, but the rest is there, heres the run down,

its blue interior, dark blue, with perfect seats, perfect carpet, perfect door cards, perfect door glass, door internals, has boot release, perfect hoodlining, pefect front and rear screens, the damage is on the drivers side front and it has hit the battery in and broken one piece off the fuse box, besides this the car still drives fine, radiator is a little bent, but still holds, the car was basically perfect before the crash. the car can be test driven, it has perfect brakes with new brake pads, perfect standard suspension, constantly serviced, no clunks or noises in the drivetrain or the diff, has 4 new tires on it, no rattles or misses in the motor, aircon just needs new condenser, besides that was cold as.

im on the northside of brisbane, is a great doner car, for a conversion, or for about $1500 you can fix the thing up and drive her, i just lost interest after a mate offered me a chevrolet v8 for a good price. there is no dents on the doors, bootlid, the red strip on the bootlid is perfect, good taillights, 1 good headlight, boot carpet, all there besides console. dash is currently out so it looks a bit messy. but this was an expensive car when brought and was treated well. if your interested i live in virginia, 5 minutes from chermside, and im looking at $850. if no interest i will sell off parts. but dont ask yet. thanks.

Rusty HK Monaro

Anyone good at rust repairs?

"[http://i20.photobuck...|rusty2]"

From memory I think this was on ebay a year or so ago. The guy was selling the ID tags and the car itself had already been sent to the scrap yard. Shame.

Front wheel offsets on HQ ute

Hi,

I want to know what the largest dimensions of wheel I can fit inside the front guards of my HQ.

I think i have a pair of 5.5" thick prostars with 3.5" backspace but want to put a bigger tyre in there so I need to get different wheels. Ideally I want to run 225 tyres, meaning I think I need a 7" rim. Could I fit a 7" rim with 3.5" backspace and not get any rubbing?

(all rims are 15" in diameter)

Any suggestions?

Cheers

Mr Karel M

are turbo pattern block 308s woth more then trimatic?

got a 308 block where the top 2 bolts are lower then my other 253s
it had a broken rod in no 7, and its been sitting without a sump outside 4 a while, so the bores have some flaky rust.
oh, the top of the piston with the broken rod has a screw halfway init.
looks a virgin block, the shells were stamped holden, and tin head gaskets
my question is, is it cheaper to get redrilled to trimatic, or buy a tri pattern?
the crank is groved where the noumber 3 main sits, is it worth getting it machined or buy different crank?

SAAS Wheels

I had a Deep dish SAAS wheel on my old VH Commodore. The car is now with my EX, however I kept the steering wheel and now want to install it on my EH. Im told due to the wheel being so deep, I need a short type boss kit. I have rang around and noone can get me the short boss, only a long one. If anyone has any idea what im on about, do they where I can find one, or will the long boss work?

Cheers
DAVE

My HG Prem

Hey guys, new to the site, thought I'd post a pic of my HG Prem. My old boy and I did her up about 10 yrs ago, started to get a little rust now so shes about to get a freshen up. Currently running a mild 253 and tri-matic, will be building a mild 308 for her, throwing on some bigger brakes and undecided whether I go some new mags or go stock dress rims. Should all be done in the next 3-6 months and she'll be back out cruisin!

HG Diff Conversions, any advice???

Hi guys! I have a HG Premier currently running a 253, Tri-matic and Banjo diff. I'm in the process of building a mild 308 for the girl and am wondering if anyone has any ideas on what's the best way to go as far as diffs are concerned?? I don't want to go to the trouble and expense of a 9 inc as the 308 is only mild and it would be a bit of over kill. So I was thinking about getting a 10-bolt or even a borgwarner from later commodore and doing a cut and shut. Any advice would be appreciated!
Brett.
