Dodgy Work....

Discovered today that in the process of putting a four speed in the HG the previous owner, instead of changing the bracket has just chopped the crossbeam.

any ideas on how to fix it all up would be appreciated

factory UC torana stereo equaliser in console??? wtf

Hey guys came across this on eBay, wondering if anyone could clear this up, its a UC shifter console with what the guy says is an original "amp" (its prob one of those EQ/Booster things) in the console......it looks factory fitted but could also just be good fitment.....anyone seen this before?
Something tells me it probably isnt original....UC's didnt even have an FM radio, let alone an EQ.

V6 conversion HT/G R&P conversion

Hey Guys.

I am installing a rack & pinion setup from a VN commodores, into my HG, using a v6 conversions kit. With the tie rod ends shortened right up, I still have toe-in. Has anyone else done this conversion? Do I need to cut the tie-rod ends or get a different type?

Cheers

Dave

HQ Callipers on HG - issues

Hey Guys.

I have some HQ Girlock Cast iron callipers, which I am putting on my HG front end. The HG backing plate seems to interfere with the callipers. It interferes up the top, where it would normally screw into the HG callipers. It also interferes down the bottom because the HQ callipers appear to be wider than the HG ones.

Has anyone come across this issue before? Do I need to trim the HG backing plate, or get an HQ backing plate?

Cheers
Dave

under bonnet insulation

The vans nearly on the road but what are your thoughts on under bonnet insulation is it worth it or will it eventually cause long term damage, talking about the self adhesive type from rare spares. cheers
