LPG solenoid freezing.

G’day everyone, having some problems with my LPG cut off solenoid freezing up, does anybody know what could be causing this? I’ve mounted the solenoid on its side for ease of fitting to my existing lines, could this be the problem? Also I’m thinking of fitting some new lines from my tank & possibly fitting another tank to double my carrying capacity. I’ve heard of a few people using flexible LPG hose to do this, is this legal?

Cheers Kale.

VL V8 as donor car

Bit of an obscure question for those in the know, but it looks like I have access to a complete VL V8 Commodore (my bro is basically giving it too me) and the plan was to do a VL Group A clone or something along those lines, but I`m also curious as to what (if anything) out of the VL will fit into an old Holden without too much trouble?

I`m pretty sure it`s a BT1 cop car so it has disc brake rear end (and fronts of course) and probably LSD. And there`s obviously the 304 and trimatic too.

Spray painting advice please.

G'Day all.
I have recently tried spraypainting the underside of the bonnet on my HJ ute. I have had a bit of experiance using spray cans before but this was the first time that I had used a compressor and spray gun.
Although it was only a cheap spray gun (it came with the compressor when I bought it) I was really happy with the results and now want to learn more about spraying.
I've had a look around and found different types of gun (suction feed and gravity feed) and different size nozzels etc.
What is the best type of gun ?
Is a cheap gun (say $50 from supercheap) just as good as a dearer gun, and if so, how dear do they get ?
Does a smaller nozzel give a smoother finish ?
Does thinning the paint more have any affect on the finish and if so, how far can you thin the pain ?
