Sound

Hey,
I hate AM radio so I want to put in a system, but I don't want to stuff with the dash (restoring it to original as possible) and I want it to be independently powered.
any suggestions? I was thinking of having a 12V DC power pack in the boot, running an inverter (changes it to 230V AC) and then running a system off that. Is this just insane? are there clearly better options?

cheers.

heater/demister

My HT ute doesn't have a heater/demister, it's got blanking plates on the firewall and dash instead.
I won't fit one if I don't have too coz I'm in QLD (sorry all you southerners). Am I going to have to fit one for roadworthy? It looks like it came that way from the factory, so one wasn't originally fitted...

Gas 186

I am planning a mild rebuild of my 186.

I intend to build it for gas only and would appreciate any suggestions of the way to go with this plan.
It runs through a trimatic to a 9" under my van. I need some good torque but nothing too greedy.
I am definitely considering a Yella Terra Gas Head - Is this a sound idea?
Also am interested in replacing mechanicaly driven components with electrical - again, opinions?

The ute is a 7 month 1971 HG Belmont and I am endeavouring to restore this car which has been in the family since new. (except for when I sold it and it was out of my possesion for 7 long years.)
The colour is Covert Biege -only its different to the regular Covert biege. - more of a creamy yellow . The color was used on HQs.

Federal Tyres

Im about to put some "value for money" 16" 225 50 series Federal performance rubber on my VL because im strapped for cash at the moment. I have a fair understanding that they are alright tyres but nothin special (hence the price). Has anyone had much experience with Federal tyres & can tell me what they think of them? Cheers.

budding mechanics

Hi
Problem ; When i my car is driven hard or goes up a hill under acceleration i get a nasty little rattle. Sounds like an extra engine valve flapping around, or foreign matter in the combustion chamber? It`s running a 6 degrees advanced(as per manual specs), 98 octane unleaded with upper engine additive for valves (morleys). Lifters are new. I`m a bit buggered bout this one? is it what they call pinging/pinking? or something more sinister. Under no load the engine just purrs (if thats possible for a blue 202). Kirkurass can u help? anyone else?
