Giveaway - Bucket seats and console

Hi all,

When i bought my FX Holden ute it came with a pair of bucket seats and console, i have already asked a few people if they could identify what car they originally came out off and it appears that are out of a ford fairlane or fairmont and GT cars, i believe they will suit XR, XT, XW.

I am about to undertake major renovations to my house (we're going to raise our old Queenslander) and i need them gone, free to anyone who wants them, pickup only.

You can email me at markriek75atgmail.com for more pictures. sorry for the poor picture quality.

Mark

Slowy's Speed Shop and Restorations in Capalaba QLD

Hey all,
Just wondering if anyone has heard of or dealt with Slowy's Speed Shop in Capalaba.
Do they do high quality work? Reasonable price?

Went in yesterday and had a decent chat with the owner.
Appears to do quality work looking around his shop.
Does everything but interiors.
Uses acrylic paints instead of 2 pac because it loses the sharpness of body lines and a couple other reasons. Is this true?

Cheers
Dec

CAD Plating???

Hi Team

I believe CAD plating is now a thing of the past, and I had all my stuff zinc plated.

It's come back pretty bright - almost like chrome on some bits!!!

Looks great, but doesn't look right.

Can anyone help me with someone who may still CAD plate??

Cheers

Jeremy

HT/G Column

Hey Guys,

I am rebuilding the steering column in my HG. It is an automatic column shift. Should there be a bearing of some sort at the bottom of the column to support the selector tube? Mine just floats around. Also, I can't seem to find the selector gate that goes in the bottom of the column to keep it in the right gear. If anybody has one they want to get rid of, let me know.

Any pictures would also be greatly appreciated

Cheers
Dave
