Sorry not OH, but not so new Holden

Can any body give me a ball park figure that they would expect to pay for a good 2002 VX SS Series 2 with Gen 3 350 chev engine, sedan (sorry no chev badges on the grille or boot though). Genuine 125,500km's, mostly highway driving, the car has been serviced every 10,000kms by a Holden dealer, has been looked after, new brakes, "sports" exhaust, K&N air filter, has a set of "mags" but basically just dressed a bit more than stock rims, good paint & interior (as good as you get after 10 years), silver paint, 5 months QLD rego.

Who does original (38j doeskin?) for HQ?

Been a long time since I've been here or touched my HQ, cant even remember my name here, Aquaq maybe? Anyway, does anyone know where I can get a new original interior from? I want that pressed stitch look not real stitching on the seats AND I'm after matching door trims.
My original trim is in great codition for a 40yr old car, but I think its time to step the ol girl up for shows etc...

Cheers

Peter Brock Anniversary

Its been Six years since Peter Brock past away, The 8th of September 2006.

I still remember where I was when I heard the news. A mate phoned me and said he heard something on the radio about a racing car driver who was killed in Perth. I turned the radio on to here the sad news. I did take the day off to watch the funeral on ABC television. My dad past away exactly one month later from cancer. It was a very sad year for me 2006. Cheers

I got this last week from the kids for Fathers Day.
(It was on my list. If you don't put a list up, you get sox & jox. Same goes for Xmas and birthdays. It's a good system)
I basically know what to do with it, but does anyone have a link or two to some good rust removal 'how-to's.. you-tube etc?

Thanks........Tim.
