EJ Stainless Trim wanted

Pulled all of the EJ trim out of storage yesterday to begin the polishing process. I am in need of the Stainless molds from the drivers font door, and drivers front guard.

The two I have are dented and mis shapen, need these two in better than average condition if anyone has to sell or swap. (I have 4 x passenger front guard trims in exceptional condition.)

Thanks in advance
Tom & Blake

TARE WEIGHT OF EH HOLDEN

My rego papers say that the tare weight of my EH is 1090kg. According to vehicle standards information 6 on the RTA website, any car under 1100kg must use the following calculation for maximum engine capacity. 1090kg x 0.183 = 199.47 cubic inch. I spoke with Tech Support at the RTA questioning the weight of my EH and he stated that the documentaion he has for EH Holdens states that the tare weight is in fact 1090kg. My question is, how do I put a 304 cubic inch motor into the EH? How do you get around the tare weight issue?

Hey Guys

So, im thinking about give the hj ute a paint job. Already have most of the gear. Just want to jolt through a couple of basic steps to see if anyone can give me pointers and/or say ya or na. I know of some blokes who take back there car to bare metal. Is this necessary? Are there advantages of doing this?

1.Body work
2.Sand car with 80 grit then move to about a 150-200 grit.
3.Ready for a primer??
4.Paint Primer
5.Sand again with 320-360grit
6.Paint final colour(in my case chamois)
7.Then paint clear coat?

Powerglide column gear indicator - pics needed.

G'day all. In need of a favour.

Looking for an image of the gear indicator for any column shift power-glides. (the clear thing on the column showing what gear you're in - L/D/N/R/P)

Pic here: http://www.impalas.c...

Know a bloke with a '65 Chevy Impala (Aus built RHD version) and he needs one. Unfortunately, whilst the Yanks do reproduce them, they're back to front - no good for passing rego.

He's hoping something from Holden during that period will suffice.
