Thirst for knowledge

Pulled the Eurovox Cassette out of a VS I'm sorting for Wifey to drive and had to strip half the car to find the end of this lead , is it something to do with the radio security ? looks like a data plug of some kind on the end , it was not plugged in to anything. No big deal , it's not going back in, just curious.

Cheers

Ken

gilmer belt drive

gday, has any one used one of these gilmer belt sets on a red 308?
I have looked at quite a few and they all say I have to use a long nose water punp because I run power steering, my question is, are the water pumps a straight swap and what else do I have to change to make this belt system work.

Neutralising rust in those hard to get spots!

g'day guys,

finally pulled my front cowling panel off and noticed a fair bit of rust where it has eaten through completely.
the previous owner has tried to use silicon to hold the water in, but it obviously hasnt worked too well.

my question is, as it is gonna be near impossible for me to cut it all out properly, is there a way i can neutralize it and build up on top of it to prevent the water from falling to my cab floor?

im thinking maybe rust converter, acrylic enamel, then fibreglass filler/silicon? would that work? or would it all turn to mush in no time?

New Dash Installed

Just finished installing a new (no rust/cut outs) dash in the HT. Also my first attempt at spray painting and as I have absolutely no panel beating experience, I am very happy with the result. It gives me a great sense of satisfaction having done it myself. Next the plenum.
