Salisbury LSD with discs into HT Brougham

Finally - after many years - got around to fitting up a 3.08 LSD Salisbury with discs to the back end of my Brougham. Now the rear stud pattern matches the front HQ rotors and I can fit my WB Caprice rims all 'round.

The car now stops on a 10 cent piece and with the shorter gearing than the 2.78 it originally had, it feels like a totally different car.

I like the WB Caprice rims on the Bro - I reckon they suit the "chrome bumper" look of the older Holden's whilst still being "factory"

Anyway, let me know what you think....

Installing Air-con

Ive been considering installing air con into the gts. How big of a task is it to install factory air con into a factory non air con car and what components need changing? ive also been looking at trunk mounted air cons but i couldn't imagine anyone in the rear seat wanting air con pointed into the back of their neck.

Vic Roads and advising new engine numbers

Hey there, never done this before, but the 308 in my HX Stato needed a new block as it was already 60 thou over. The engine builder got a block out of a WB Capriceand I know I need to let Vic Roads know and they need to sight the new engine. Will they give me grief about the extractors or anything else?
I am nervous, but not sure why??

Sad news from England...

They're saying on the wireless that a nurse in England connected to the Sydney 'Radio Prank' has died. It looks like suicide. Apparently the nurse was not the one heard on the tape, but the one who put the call through to the ward.
What a sad end to what seemed like a harmless bit of fun..

Door Trim

Image: 

The Door trims in the wagon are getting a bit tatty and I thought it would be a good project that I could try and have a go at myself. Now to a couple of people's disgust ( Hking ) I am going for a Surfer style look on the wagon and I kind of like the idea of doing something similar to that in the picture just for something different other than Vinyl. Just want people's opinions ( other than what it looks like because I know most of you will hate it ) on the pros and cons of using a timber for the trim.
