Overheated brake pads

T. I was not sure if you would want pics like this. I have a couple of shots of these pads that have been overheated if you want them.

Sheds and Images

Hi Rusty,

I added 3.3 just so I could say it was possible.

I can't get to the sheds just now.

Also, are you able to make some progress on the images area? There are some shots in there that I could really use.

Cutting air cleaner hole in HQ bonnet

Hi, just a little question, I'm fitting a Harrop single plane manifold and 1.5" carbie spacer and 11"x5" high filter on my 308 and was wondering does anyone know how to mark and cut a nice even, neat hole, in the right spot in a HQ bonnet?
cheers
Wes.

Fuel for black 308 conversion

Hi, I'm putting a black 308 from a VK into my HJ.

Does anyone know if a standard fuel pump off a red 253 would be ok to bolt onto the block and run off the crankshaft as it does not have a fuel pump (I assume the VK had an electric pump).

Thanks

3.3 Option

Hi Rusty,

Would you add a 3.3 to the engine option?

It becomes confusing when people post up that their VK has a 202 when we all know the block was stamped 3.3 ex factory.

A Project Car from a Wrecking Yard?

I am tipping that there may well be a number of members that have done this, so I am hoping for some good tips!

One of the things that I would like to accomplish is to go into a Wrecking Yard, select an appropriate vehicle that has been cast out and place her in my shed and give her the complete restoration rebuild.

I have spoken to the RAA Technical Advice people here in Adelaide and they have told me that yes I can purchase a whole vehicle if it has been sold to a Wrecking Yard, I cannot purchase any vehicle that has been Written off by an insurance company and then sold to the wreckers, this is to stop rebirthing of stolen cars.

The LX hatch didnt sell - to be relisted on ebay soon

The buyer who "definitely 100%" wanted to buy the car ended up .... not buying it. The owner now is trying to contact all the people he said no to to arrange a pre christmas sale. You may see it on ebay yet again if it doesnt work out.

compliance plates

does anyone know anything about compliance plate reprints. my plates had a heap of corrosion on them and i gave them to my dad to clean up in the acid stuff they use at work to clean that sort of thing and it ate holes through the pates you can still read it but its also wafer thin so i was just wondering if you can get reprints done or not.
