original paint colours

my compliance plate says that originally my HR had grecian white body with alaskan aqua top. I haven't ever seen one this colour, has anybody else, and were there many like that or with other colour roofs with the white body?

Calling any Frigies

Hey folks...one of my students is aiming to be a Refigeration Mechanic...not car stuff, but large freezers, split systems etc.
I am trying to find some info one where he should start. I have looked on the NTIS webb site, but all it seems to do is give me the names of places that offer different course's...not what quals. are required.
I need this young fella to see in black & white that he needs his maths, english etc. He is quite capable....but I need to find a starting point.
Any ideas????
Cheers Q-ball.

HZ rear disc brakes

Hi all, I've just bought a 10 bolt diff for my HZ kingswood. It came out of a HZ prem. It did have drums on it, but came with none. I was wondering if I bolt discs on, instead of drums without modifying the length of the diff housing, will it still fit ok?
If so what else do I need? And how much, and a good place to buy rear discs??

Cheers Mark

Hi there

Does anyone have a picture from the outside of the manual remote mirror available through Nasco for the HK-G range??

I've seen the photo from the inside, but I've never seen what they looked like from the outside.

Cheers

Shed link

OK, this might sound a little silly but there has to be an easier way to get into my shed other than going to sheds, clicking on the page number it's in and clicking on my shed. I have searched every where on the site and found nothing. Surly there would be a link to it somewhere. HELP

Brake Pad Change

Hi all, not OLD Holden but Holden none the less. The missus has a 2000 JS Vectra (front wheel drive) and I went to do the rear pads and rotors on it to find it looks like you have to pull the calipers apart to remove and insert the new pads thus meaning bleeding the brakes afterwards! Anyone heard of such nonsense before? Anyone ever had any experience in these type of calipers/pad setup? There definitely doesn't seem any other way around it. Stupid European Opel Sh!t.

Cheers, Daz.

Need mag wheels, HQ pattern, Melbourne

Does anyone have any HQ pattern rims for sale in Melbourne? I have a workhorse HZ pano, need replacement wheels that aren't too expensive.

I'm currently using 14" x 7" wheels. They have 215/65/14 front and 225/65/14 back and 90% tread so I'm weighing 2 options (1) stick with 14" rims and keep my tyres (2) upgrade to 15" or 16". I think in the long run I might be better off with the bigger wheels.

headlight relay

hi everyone, having some dramas with the tonner lights. when i bought her the high beams would do the flicker/turn off, back on etc. thing; which i found out was due to the bimetal switch contact bending away cos of too much current goin thru. so i got a couple of hella inbuilt fuse type relays and put them in, one for low ,one for high. everything turned on and off fine. so far so good. but when i was driving home that night the fuse blew after 2 min. i thought maybe dud fuse, replaced it, same. swapped relays over, used the one that was on the lows, same.
