HQ subframe restoration gone wrong

Hi guys I'm in the early stages of restoring my HQ coupe and already I'm having problems. I got my body soda blasted and had the sub frame swapped with another subframe I had the subframe from the coupe soda blasted and sent away for powder coating. When I got the subframe the DH left the fuel line clips in the frame and powder coated straight over them, along with the slag. So I took it back to get it fixed, now the DH hit the slag with a grinder the powder coated over top of grind marks F@#K I'm pist. I'v already spent 2K on this subframe now it will cost me another 1K to fix it up.

narrower diff for HG sedan

hi guys, im looking to put streeter showheels on my daily driver HG. i would prefer to run disc brakes all round, possibly vt. my diff measures 1540mm from drum face to drum face, and a vk disc diff measured about 1520mm fromm disc to disc. these diffs can be easily converted to vt discs, however this is still too wide, i need a diff around 1500mm, or 59", any ideas?

This is our 2nd '81 VC 50th Anniversary Commodore. We've now had it for about a year and are in the process of restoring her.They were built to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the merge between General Motors and Holden Body Builders. At around the same time as these cars were being made, the 4 millionth Holden also rolled off the production line.

Clutch woes!!

Hi guys,

I have recently installed a 308 with an m21 4 speed. I changed the clutch and also the cable and pull type clutch pedal.
I only had the 6 cylinder pedal and found that I couldn't get it into reverse. I have now managed to cut and weld the pedal so that it is the same dimensions as the v8 pedal. I adjusted the fork so that it is at 48mm? The pedal sits on the floor though.

Is there anything I may have done wrong? The thrust bearing is correct, could the cable be wrong? would that make a difference?

Stolen HK81837 Tags

Hi all. Got a sad tale to tell and need some help. Have had my 81837 in storage for the last 8 years and picked it up yesterday to bring home and start restoring. All goes well until i lift the bonnet and find some f%$*&% **** has swapped the id tags. Not happy Jan. I have seen from time to time on here conversations regarding guys selling plates on ebay. Mine was an 81837 warwick yellow with black interior and i have owned it since january 1998. Just wondering if anyone has any recollection of any ebay users who may have been involved in selling plates.
