Old Holden that loses power when warmish

Every now and then the old FB starts farting around and wont go up hills etc. Esp bad when warm. I have changed fuel filters (made it better for a while) but after 4 filters I dont think its the problem. I seem to have plenty of fuel in the carb and spark at number 1. I sent it to a mechanics who said the compression was low and uneven. When I checked the compression myself (cold) all cylinders were 150 psi. Do I need to check compression hot? What else cold be causing this? Bad leads? Coil with increased resistance due to heat? Carby full of stuff that blocks up under load when hot?

Rust repairs

Hi guys, ive got a hq with a couple spots of rust in it. Looks like the front right floor pan, i know i can buy one from rare spare and weld that in. But its also got some rust in the rear passanger 1/4 pannel. From inside the boot you can see the holes down in the bottom.

The next piece im wondering about is the crowl pannel, one spot of rust but i dont think the whole panel needs replacing.

My question is, whats the best way to repair these kinds of rust? Cut out the section and weld in a new piece of sheet?

Rare Spares

I bought new door rubber seals from Rare Spares for the HZ rear doors but they don't fit. I have moved the door striker bolts to different positions but no matter what I do the rear doors do not sit flush with the rear quarters. I have sprayed the rubber seals with Rubber Magic to soften them up but no success. Has anyone else bought repro seals from Rare Spares and discovered they don't fit? Or am I doing something wrong?

MrHQGts' GTS....

After much thought and few conversations with those who know, My car has been removed from sale, There was alot of reluctance on my part originally to sell it and MrsHQGts was dead set against the idea of parting with the car that took up 19 months of our lives.

The reasons for the desicion to offer the car for sale are really no ones business other than mine, however, i can go as far as saying i really built a monster, so much work, time and effort has been placed into the car, i am very uncomfortable out on the road in it, it is the centre of attention every where it goes and i really don't like all the nostalgia attached to it.(well, the word monaro anyway) Don't get me worng, i am quite happy to show it and tell people about it, the reality is- i am just a floor sander who built a nice car

I know it sounds insane, but that's just the way it is........

At the end of the day, if i did sell the car, i honestly believe i would be kicking myself in the arse, coupled with the fact that MrsHQGts was not happy with my somewhat "rash decision". MrsHQGts is not your average type "sell that bloody car" type of woman, so please leave her out of this debate. those that beg to differ are welcome to my phone number so they can be set well and truly in their place.

I am ok with the fact that some don't like me, the cars i have owned, the cars i have sold or anything else for that matter, but please spare me the bull[Naughty Pottyword], i am not intrested.

Be careful what you wish for people...you just might get it!

Holden HZ sandman resto

Still trying to get all the bits I need to finish my HZ sandman rebuild. Got most of the rare bits of ebay over the last 4 years. The original shell was RS got a rust free straight shell but has not got the full headlining. The sandy was off a farm in midwest W.A. I got it home to Geraldton but all the gts dash had been removed along with the gts wheel for a 1 tonner project. When I scrapped the original shell I cut all the headlining brackets to fit to the donor shell but while I was away at work my other half decided to have a yard clean up and dumped the lot at the tip.
