Long time no see

Hi all,

Havnt posted up lately, been pretty flatout at work and unfortunately the VB has been a bit neglected. Thought i'd just put up a quick update. Well i got a hold of a cheap set of springs and its been lowered a bit, i like the height at the front but the rear has to come down a fraction more, not much and it will be perfect. Anyway i've got my blueslip all done so now im just waiting on funds to get it on the road.

Im doing everything I can to get it on the road before this sunday coming intime for the Sydney Street Commodores Cruise For Charity. Its been a target for the last 12 months and ill be realy dissapointed if i dont make it so with a bit of luck i'll have it on the road this friday or saturday just in time :)

HZ kingsy paint prep

gday all,

i tried to go back to the bare metal on me n/s front guard today.
the outside had already been done with the help of a mate.

i didn't turn out as i hoped because the insde paint was so hard to get off.
also, it's so hard getting around on the inside of a panel eh?

i applied paint stripper and scraped and scraped and..

then thinners with steel wool and a rag.

just a cuppla of quick questions pls guys:

1) am i being a silly purist bothering to paint the inside of a guard? obviously don't do the black inner guard?

2)should i bother trying to get the rough, factory grey primer off - up, underneath the top? it looks fine. pls say no.

Grill Restoration

G'day. Can anyone recommend a place that does grill restorations. I want to get my HT grill fixed up but don't know of anywhere that does this type of work. It will require a bit of plastic welding as a mounting lug has broken and there are a couple of cracks in it. Also needs a lick of paint and general tidy up. Not really keen to have a crack at it myself so I am interseted to find out if anyone knows of a place that does this work, and if you've had it done before. Cheers.

Wheel vibration

Some advice please. Eh was running fine other than needing new tyres, which we booked it in for yesterday. Drove home fine on local roads, nothing over 70km/hr. Taking it out on the freeway this morning, the car is undrivable over 90km/hr the vibration through the steering is so bad.

Welcome experience from others is this an horrific job of balancing (was done with the tyre change), or do you thing some other componenet has been upset in the jacking up of the front end, ball joint? Other.

253 backfiring through carb

Hi I have put together a warm little 253 over the past couple of years. It's got all new parts and had a full machine and rebuild. The engine is installed and the timing is roughed in with the vac advance blocked off. The engine will idle a little at about 400rpm for a few seconds but then it stalls with a backfire through the carb. It has a 570 vac sec street avenger on it full msd ignition, warm hyd cam with roller rockers, big valves (1.82" inlet, standard exh), and is running about 10.5:1 comp. does anyone have any idea what might be causing the backfire.

Just a question on my HT Premier!!

I have a Brisbane built 1970 HT Premier. Just a few things to ask you guys to see if you can help me find out why it doesn't have some of the typical premier things! It has Bucket front seats with factory V8 and floor shift auto. Rubber floor no carpet. No fan, heater box or even the switches in the dash just has a factory blank piece where the adjustments should be. The centre dash trim stops same place the kingswood's do and doesn't follow through to the ash tray. it seems like when it was ordered from the factory it came with Auto V8, buckets and no bling!
