Price adjustment

Could be wrong but I think we're seeing a bit of a price adjustment on the value of our cars going by a couple of the nice cars that have passed or sold cheap on ebay of late. Makes my current project feel like more of a money pit.

Tool time

Some time back the question was asked about favorite tools.
I think I listed my trusty 1/4 inch drive socket set and Metabo cordless screw driver. Now this is fine for stuff used day-to-day.

....But, today I got to use one of my tools I dont use much (no not THAT one!)..my Wagner air-less spray gun...had to paint a pool pump shed and started on the garden shed....wore a silly grin the whole time...
So....name one (or more) tools that you ENJOY using....even if its only once a year

PS....yes I know it all reads a bit wrong....but you get the gist :)

Holden Badge/emblem

I Have just foundout some info on this and no its not a aftermarket emblem and only acouple were made, its royal and its was brought out when the Queen came to Adelaide in 1963, Its very Rare and as it has all its peices it worth alot more than what we thought :)
I have already had a very high offer from a Holden Collector in the uk so i was pretty pleased but beacuse this peice is very rare and can't be found in this condition, i believe it will go back in the cupboard for afew more years. :)

Reverse Switch Setup

this is one method of holding a momentary switch open. The U-bolt straddled the rear extension IIRC in a way that the switch was behind the linkage, when Reverse gear was engaged. This princible should work on most external linkage gear-bags.

LJ axle splines

I am looking at buying an LJ rear end to get the centre for a spare for the EH.
The LJ was a 173 3 speed SL sedan.
Would it be a coarse spline centre? I'm not sure when they went to fine splines.
Anyone interested in the housing and axles if I get it? ( I am near Port Macquarie, NSW)

Epoxy primer or bare metal for bog?

Okay....I always maintained that filler and bare metal was the best recipe.

Today, I was told epoxy primer first, then primer.

Can't spray epoxy primer in my backyard, so I'm sticking to bare metal.

Any thoughts or definitive practice on this?

Cheers

HK reverse lights?

Am I missing something or do HKs not have any reverse lights? Or are both rear blinkers supposed to come on in reverse? I'm confused ;/
