FX Paint Colour - Confirmed

Although my FX ute is a long way off finished I finally confirmed the exterior paint colour, it will be an original colour - Glenn Green.

I want to use an original colour for the interior trim as well, i have bought the Don Loffler books which have a wealth of information on paint and trim colours and from what i can see the FX ute only had 3 x trim colours available - brown, walnut brown and merridan grey. Is this correct? does anyone know what colour trim goes best with Glenn Green?

If my ute had a plate stating what the original paint and trim colours were i would stick with it however mine had none when i purchased it.

If anyone has any photos of an FX or FJ ute paint Glenn Green with maybe an interior shot that would be great.

GM Day Perth Bassendean Oval 21/11/2010

Not a bad turnout of cars but this was my favorite on the day. Is a red and white EK (I Think).
Was the only Forced Induction straight six at the show.
There was also a nice EH with a stroker HP block and Yella terra 12 port.

water leaking from rear of engine

i put the radiator and radiator support on the ute chassis today and hooked up all the water hoses, i WAS going to run the engine til it was warm to see if it was all good before i started the body work on the cab

i did start it before i put the radiator in and ran it for 10-15 secs and it ran sweet

BUT... as soon as i put water in the radiator it started to drip out the back of the engine!!! (you can see a small puddle starting in the pic)

i took the inspection plate off and it looks like it's dripping out of the rear seal, but i suspect it's dripping from higher up and just looks that way

i'm thinking a welsh plug? is there any in the rear of the engine that would leak like this? i just don't want to pull the gearbox off for no reason

Brakes - HZ

Hi Guys, My first outing in my HZ (5 years of restoration)and after giving the old girl a bit of stick,the front brake calipers would not release, consequently a great deal of smoke from the wheels arches. So I pulled over, waited an hour or so and they released. I took it pretty easy and headed for home. Travelled about 25kms and again they locked up. So patked up and waited again. Finally got home, there is no damage to the rotors, Pads require replacement.
Is the problem the Master Cylinder or the brake valve?.
Thanks

HQ Drum Brakes Help please

Hi All,

I am currently in the process of rebuilding rear hq drum brakes, and I was hoping to get a parts diagram showing the exact location of two particulat items;

The bush that goes inside the automatic adjuster;

Does it go between the adjuster and the shoe, or between the retaining clip and the adjuster?

The washer (looks like an antisqual type due to its shape) where does it go exactly?

I hope someone can be of assistance.

QLD'ers WTF

Off to the V8 Supercars in a minute, my stomach is turning, the nervous tension is racing and my blood is pumping. Now that's not from the excitement of the V8's but the realization that I believe we can only get XXXX at the track? You QLD'ers have a lot to answer for ;)
