badges info please

for my wb statesman - i am going to send off the headlight reflectors to be re metalized and was wondering if anyone knows the process used on the exterior plastic badges - "caprice" and "series 2" as mine are faded and no longer have shine.

if vacuum metalizing is suitable ill send them off at the same time, just didnt want to have it done if it say peels off in months for example.

Hump Day Special

I've made friends(client)over the last 2 years with this older fella,he seen my wagon one day and said do you like old holdens.Yep I said,he then was telling me about an FJ him and he's mate chopped the roof off because it was a rolled over wreck and the roof was had it.They strengthened it and put all the other parts off another FJ.He brought these pics out to me on Monday.This was back in 1955 so this could be the first(he reckons it was,he didn't know of any others around back then) FJ in Australia to be converted to a convertible.He ended up selling it and never heard of it's whereabout

HEI module tech

Does any body electrically minded have a diagram of the internals of the HEI module? It's only a curiosity as I've seen a number of these fail and every time it's due to poor earthing of the module to the engine block/chassis. I'm curious as to the path of failure caused by the poor earth.
