Ticking

I have a ticking coming from the dash. Varies with speed and happens mostly when backing off, stops when accelerating, sometimes there when cruising. Continues to tick when stopped at lights in neutral. I'm thinking speedo cable, but would this behave this way (ie: continue to tick when still?) Speedo needle nice and steady, doesn't waver about.

Where to drill the rivets

These are the ones to drill, NOT THE MIDDLE HINGING RIVET!
might do a work guide when I have money for the *die in the arse cast* chroming for my LHS.

Stainless trim

Hi guys n gals, started rubbing back the HR yesterday, ready for a re spray. What I would like to know, is, when I put my newly repaired guards & tail lights back on the car, what do you guys use as a sealer? Obviously you can't get the stuff they used when it was built, that grey stuff that never sets.
Also, have any of you guys used something like sykaflex to put your stainless moulds on with?
I was thinking that this would be a lot easier than useing the clips, & if I was real careful, I might be able to just put enough behind each trim so as to act as a seal so that it doesn't get water in behind it. Any thoughts on the idea would be much appreciated, thanks.

What to do when it doesn't quite fit.

I thought this might come in handy on someone's Holden one day.
We changed the road Bluebird (Series 1) from auto to manual. It was made with a BW35 auto which mounted in a different spot to the Bluebird five speed. Same floor member and crossmember, just in a different spot.
A bl**dy Series 2 auto to manual conversion bolts straight in as the Series2 has a Jatco (Japanese) auto. I know because I did the rally car first to be sure it all fits before I did the road car, which is when I discovered the difference.
The long plate will mount the gearbox crossmember on one original bolt (centre hole) and the stud. The other original bolt will go in the other original bolt hole. We didn't move it back any more to keep it strong.
