INFO needed FJ panelvan

I am after some measurements of the vents in the side panel of an FJ panel van.
I am filling the windows in to go back to original and need to know how long the vents are and exactly where they should be positioned. Would also love a photo of the back of the vent if anyone has one.
Also need pictures of the partition between the rear of the seat and the front of the tray, mine was cut down by the previous owner.
Thanks in advance.
Going to try and go to the FX-FJ nationals in maitland next month so hopefully get some photos there if no one can help.

Old car stereos

I've got an old pioneer component sound system, it was my first setup I had in my cars when I was young & stupid.

I havent been able to get rid of it after all these years because I thought I may be able to ressurect it one day in a future car.

I want to stick it into the prem to keep with the period (sort of the right period anyway) of the car.

At the time I was led to believe it was "top of the range"

The head unit is a Pioneer KEX70,
Nine stage passive graphic, Pioneer CD-9,
120watt Amp, Pioneer GM-120,
2 x 40watt Amps, Pioneer GM-4,
and some groovy flashing lights-Pioneer power meter thingo.

some help please...........

Hey guys been up all night trying to install a 12inch thermo into my hj, Shouldve just connected the thermos wires to my existing setup but as i wanted to start fresh i disconnected everything from the relay... Wrong move. Now while its probably really simple and something small can someone please tell me simply wat goes where. Im just running a navara 30 or 40 amp relay box and just sending straight to a manual switch in the dash. Being somewhat impaired from grand final (bloody port) doesnt help one bit. If someone is using a similar setup let me know what is going on. cheers toby

Hey Jordan LCGTR are you out there?

Try again... Does anyone in OH land have a GTR Torana with the original WW Strommy carby, and throttle linkages? I need the measurements between the holes on the throttle relay lever which is attached to the pivot on the firewall. See the pic. If you're feeling really motivated, I would appreciate a tracing of the part, which should be easy to remove and replace. Looking forward to a reply... hopefully I can get started on making up the new part today.
Cheers,
Rob

Loser!!

6am.. Sunday morning driving down the road on the way home from hospital with my wife and 2 year old. Normally the next scene of vehicular mayhem confronting me around the corner wouldn't phase me, but today I reckon the time lost at a single light change has meant the difference between us being part of this idiot's accident, or watching it.

Fuel consumption

I went for a swim today, 566 kilometers there and back.
I used 69ltrs.
Is this normal for a 5 liter VN?
I would have averaged 115kph with the AC on in the tropical heat.

Cross Member Woes

Got some shed time at a mechanics today with access to a hoist which makes all synchro from crash conversions a lot more pleasant. However, got to put the cross member on and found that the cross member i got out of a HG I was told would be an easy bolt on was different! A few holes drilled here and there later and a makeshift cross member was put in place but I cant use the car for daily driving how it is.

Anyone have a cross member for a HK Kingswood sedan up for grabs to support an all synchro box? It seems ones from G's are not compatible.

I'm in Melbourne so can pick up if someone is close otherwise i can get savvy and work out transport.

Any help is appreciated, got to get the old girl back on the road!
