Hopefully getting a HT Ute very soon, is this a good deal????

Hey peoples,

Haven't been on here for ages, mostly because i moved into the newer holden era with a VX Berlina wagon LS1....

But, all going well i might be purchasing a HT Ute from a friend for $2000 next week, just wondering if that is a good deal???

It's white, 186, 5speed celica box, usual rust, never been in an accident....I'm hoping to restore it back to it's beauty over time....can't wait

cheers

%&#!@!~ Thieving little [Naughty Pottyword]s!!!

I park my ute outside work daytime.
There is some sort of games/bowling arcade next door, and twice per week school kids visit the arcade for gym class.
Today I discovered that the little [Naughty Pottyword]s have stolen my tyre valve caps. Not that they were of any expensive kind, but its just the thing that you cant even have things attached to your car without having stuff being flogged.

I have a 'new' chevy bowtie attached to my grille, and I fear that my bowtie could be the next thing I will discover knicked.

Whatta you reckon bout this idea!?!

I'll attach a set of cables straight from the car battery to the metal on the badge, so when some little [Naughty Pottyword] are about to flogg it they will get zapped, and hopefully think twice about touching the bowtie again.

Any ideas??

HQ front indicators- without park lights

Gday people.
Just going through my front indicators for my van at the moment, and I have 2 different styles of electrical socket in front of me, I was hoping someone out there could tell me which one is the "correct" fitting for my 74 van- amber lenses hence no park lights fitted. Searched through the pedia but couldn't find anything on it.

I have one with a part number on it: 2823808
and the other just has A & B on it (no part number). Both have single wires coming from them.

burnt out the munro

As you know i had changed the sub frame motor etc.
well set up the new alarm central locking today.
Had to pull the dash out and find what wire goes were , whilst i was at it i tried to fix the petrol gauge as it had never worked.
well i must have wired the amp up wrong as when i turned the key all the wiring when red as and started to melt.
i turned the key back off and that's when i smelt the smoke .
i looked up and seen the bonnet smoldering.
I popped the bonnet and the whole wiring around to the battery was on fire and burning into the sub frame.

Gear box part numbers, some help please

Hey there, got a question about gear boxes.

I have 2 Holden gear boxes,and want to know what is what before I start spending any time or money doing them up. Going into the LC GTR. This originally had a Holden "Aussie" M20 4spd. (please... no arguments, it was not an Opel 4spd, I have the factory build sheet).
The 2 boxes have different part numbers, so if anyone can decipher them and tell me what they are, that would be peachy :)

1) Blue painted gear box, HOLDEN 9938391
Number on the cover holding in the front shaft: 8930912
This box has a switch under the front selector, on the right hand side of the gear box housing, as well as a (reverse?) switch attached to the selectors on the left. Someone has written "M20 6cyl" on the front of the gearbox.

HJ statesman lower grill section and tyres wanted

Hi again all, I am still looking for a lower grill section for a HJ statesman and a rust free upper tailgate for a van if anyone can help out. I was told Rare Spares had repo lower grills but they reckon they have never remade them. I am also looking for a pair of 265/50/14 or 295/50/14 tyres if anyone has some they want to sell.

Metallica - Fuel

So what song do you think should be added?

Dean.
