dash

Ok Doing a fair bit of work to the monaro to get her looking good.
The shell is hg, the trim hk, with ht tail lights.
I will be getting her painted soon (can't wait)
At the moment the shell is painted to suit the hk.

Should i do away with the hk grille and dash.
Then get a hg grille and dash and paint as hg.
Or leave it as it is and be different.
I sort of know what i want to do ,but need some ideas to convince me.

Leaking

My car is taking in water with all this rain. Its coming from under the dash and dripping pretty much on the pedals. I think its coming from the window wiper, but i don't know where it could be coming in from. Is there a seal around the window winder base that could be leaking?? Ive checked that is not coming from the drainholes in the cowl. I originally thought it was so i replaced all the plumbing from the cowl but its still leaking. Its very hard to see right up under the dash. It needs to be fixed before i put my brand new carpet in!! Any help is appreciated.

Door seals on a HR

I am new to these forums so hello to everyone here.

I am a young guy who is just starting out in the world of very old Holdens.

Recently, as you all know, it has been raining very heavily in NSW. The HR leaked water and it was found to be some stuffed door seals.

I have purchased some new ones and installed them only to find that the doors are very hard to close. Is this normal because they need to worn in or do I have a problem?

Thanks in advance

Registration Woes

Hey guys i Think i will have a nightmare regestering my car for the road but what do you's thing

HR special sedan 1966

400ci(6.6lt) small block chev

Tremec 6 speed manual

hopper stopers big brake kits (disk fron and rear 355mm)

9in diff with 4:11 gearing

4 point roll cage as i hered that 6 point is hard to get on the road (ANDRA compliant)

Extractors Cutting Through The Front Inner Guards

about 20cm off the floor (done buy pedders in toowoomba)

18in wire rims 5 wide on the front and 10 on the back

so what you guys think i think its gunna be tough but eh all good things are

i have all the parts i just have to find time to get back to work on it

anyway i think i might be way over my head with the 400 but as Squarepants said the isnt much externally differnat between a 400 and a 350/307/327

regards
