Progress update

Hi all

Just another quick update,
The bay is all finished polishing, came up a treat, booster has been taken back to metal and repainted in gloss black. Shines nicely in the bay, starting to put a few things back in the bay, steering column is back in, all the engine bay wiring is finished under the guards and headlights are all back in, guards are now fitted back on, and a bonus, everything electrically worked :) haha
I gave one of the guards a real quick sand back and polish and took before an after pics. Look in the attachments. The difference is incredible.

WB rust

Why did wb's (statesman/caprice) rust around the rear 1/4 window? I believe a lot of them were actually repaired by GMH under warranty in the day. Is it just a case of water sitting around that can't get away?

ignition circuit problems

hi everybody, hope you're well and your holdens are purring...
currently [pardon the pun] i have no juice through the purple wire from the ignition switch to the starter [the one that fits on the spade tab on the solenoid].
there is other wiring involved as well, so here's the story:

headin up the mountain in torrential downpour, wipers stop dead. burning smell. pull up and have a quick check of fuse and wiper motor wiring plug. plug on firm, fuse a bit discoloured [old paper insert one] but wire seemed ok. in hindsight that fuse was probably stuffed but up the end where i couldn't see it.

every now and then when i clutched i would get static on the radio and the alt light would glow, but go out [well, go back to its dull level it usually is on].

gday all,

it seems my trimatic's rear extension housing is leaking AGAIN.

not that long ago (ie. only 35K kms), i got a new 'speedi-sleeve' and matching seal. after that, it never really became totally dry.

can any of you boys shed some light onto this for me? like, another plan of attack?

like all you boys, i hate all leaks and love everything to be dry as bone.

..pity pls don't tell me that the rear bearing in me trimatic is gawn....
