Things to know

HI all I have just bought a HX with a 253 with a trimatic. I was told that the car was running well and found out on the day I drove it 450Kms from Adelaide to Mt Gambier (home) that it's not. Suspension needs replacing, Radiator needs replacing and the list is starting to pile up.

Hoping you guys could give me a list of things to look out for.

Cheers

Advice for painting my HQ

I have just purchased a 74 HQ kingswood sedan. I have about 5g to fiddle with and would love to have the car stripped to metal and painted, as i want to keep this car for good. Please any advice on how to do this would be great. Currently i have in mind, to stip it myself, cut the rust if any, and primer it, then take it to a shop for bodywork/paint. Is this the best way to go for this cash budget i have??? Any 1st hand stories or advice would be great!

VY II Ute Respray

Hey guys,
I'm looking for someone in the greater Sydney area who could spray my VY Ute / repair a small dent in the left rear quarter.
It's currently in Cosmo Mica and I'm thinking to make things easy, I'd like it re-sprayed in the same colour. Only other thing is that I'm replacing the current body kit with a new Maloo Body Kit (Front end, front guards, skirts and rear bumper), so they would need to be sprayed from their black undercoated stage.

I'm in the city but wouldn't even bother obtaining a quote as people around here charge an arm and a leg for their work.
I just don't can't really find time to take a week off to paint it myself, so would really appreciate if someone could recommend a good bloke in the trade who does a good job and won't break my bank.

I am trying to set up a shed - I think I have the shed part done but every time I go to "add items" (ie. photos) it is coming up with an error. Last noght I tried and it said it was uploading the photos but they are not there. I am hopeless with computers so any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.

fuel lines for twin carby and few other fuel related questions

I was reading through some cams stuff today and noted area regarding fuel lines need to use braided hose and fittings my question is does anyone know place that sells braided fuel lines to suit twin Stromberg setup or is this another custom job that i will need to have done by Enzed or pertek

I have found few universal kits but they seem to be more suited to holleys

my plan is to have fuel cell and run braided lines from the tank to the electric fuel pump then to regulator and then to carbies

Im also stuck at what type of electronic fuel pump to use because i want to get rid of the manual fuel pump and there are so many types available im lost on what output i would need

Hi all, Had the 2.78 LSD Banjo in the wagon rebuilt by Jeff McNamara in Moorabbin yesterday. Excellent job and a very cluey bloke indeed. He is a man of few words but knows his stuff. The work shop he has is a time machine of old school engineering.
