Laid up Insurance

G'day fellas, just wanted to know if anyone knows of an insurance company which will cover your classic while it's in a million bits and under restoration. I'm due to send my rolling shell off to be panelbeated and I have all the parts from it stored in another area. I called Shannons and they said they don't have a policy like this. As it's a pretty valuable car I really need to insure it before I send it out.
Cheers, Glenn.

Advice sort on Two Tone Paint

Hi All,
I am after some advice on painting my HR in Two Tone. I wish to paint the roof White and the body Silver Mink. Where should the white start and finnish? Should I mask it just under the gutters and paint the door jams, dash, "A" pillars and "B" pillars inside the car down to the floor and all the doors in Silver Mink? I have the Chrome strips to seperate the roof to the body around the rear windscreen and will be putting the gutter chrome moulds back on also.

Thanks Jim

Economy - both ways...

I was in a moderately loaded Prius last night (taxi). It was odd watching the consumption display on the dashboard screen show "0.0 litres per 100km". That was when it was at rest, with both engines switched off. At this stage, a conventional engine is consuming at the rate of 'infinity litres per 100km'...!
When the lights changed though, it quickly flipped to 47.7 litres per 100km, before settling back around the 5L/100km mark.

whare are they?

OK now my old barn style shed, which was built about, say, 50 or so years ago, needs a revamp. Theres a faux wall down the middle which seperates where the ute lives and a workshop. The wall also supports the beam which holds up the gable frames.
Anyway, why is it when I took all the old masonite and fibreboards off the wall (as per my asbestos post) and the masonite off this centre wall to create a skeletal frame that I have found no signs of life, not even an ant or millipede let alone spiders. Theres pooloads of webs. Are they looking down from a hidey hole?

Obsolete vihicels, kinda almost off topic

Ï thought some of you guys might be intrested in my latest future project. Its not quiet holden but it was assembled by them. 1952 Chev truck with tipping body and 2 speed diff.
It runs and drives but needs a fair bit of work. The plan is to fit a flat bed but retain the hoist to make it into a basic tilt tray for carting old cars and other heavy stuff. It has its original Blue Flame engine ect. It can carry 6.4tonnes and was originaly used to haul grain.
Its had a hard life and looks like crap but has a bucket load of potential. I love these old tucks and recon there should be more done to save them from coming back as F*ing great wall utes!

Also, if your looking at the news reel and at someones picture and you want to go to that persons shed to view other pictures, can someone please advise if this is possable or not. I have tried a few things without success.

Three of these would be good on a grey motor

They are downdraught SU carbys. They were on a 1936 MGA sedan.
I'd never seen or heard of them until I saw these on Sunday.
I just thought three would look good on an FX/FJ.

HJ Ute Handbrake Cable

Hi all, installed the handbrake cable on the HJ Ute over the weekend to find the cable rubs on the part of the undercarriage where the strut/channel runs horizontal to the front, it's where the rear bolt for the drivers seat goes into. It's the same on both sides. According to the parts manual I have it right, the hooks are all according to the diagram. Is this normal as the floor definitely looks ok, like it's not dropped at all.
