bench to buckets

is it a straight swap to take out the beanch seat in my HT ute and put buckets from a HT prem. in? are all the holes there, or do I have to get new ones drilled and plated?
BTW the post below this is obviously from a disgruntled ex-postal worker, and I won't bother voting...

Australias most radical FC Holden custom

Hi guys - it has been a while since I have updated the FC Custom files. The custom as some of you may be aware has been repainted Cyan blue with Ghost flames and a pin up girl on the conti kit. The car finally has a name - 'MISS LEAD'.
The FC Ute has been finished and on the road for some time now and it sees regular use as well .
To make sure that no-one else will get their hands on the top radical custom trophy at car shows( (even though we now don't enter the car in as many shows because winning is a foregone conclusion with the only radical custom on the scene) -we are building another FC Holden radical custom . With a bit of luck and a lot of hard work this new car will make the other FC Custom look a bit ordinary. If you are going to be upstaged I figured it may as well be by yourself.
I will try and include pics - as soon as I figure out how to add them.

The correct colour of HQ-HZ GTS wheels??

Can anybody tell me whether the GTS steel wheels as fitted to HQ's to HZ's were all the same colour??. The difference I have seen is in the 'low' areas; that is around the wheel nuts and raised parts.

The 'High' areas, that is on the ridges and around the rim have mostly been silver but the low areas seem to vary from Matt black to others with Semi-gloss black and others with a browny colour.

auto choke

G'day, this post isn't on holdens (sorry!), but i read a post a while back about a Datsun and i was hoping someone would be able to help me.
Ive got a 78 Datsun/Nissan skyline. Its a 2.4 6 cylinder L24. One problem is it seems to take way to long to warm up??? Also I think the auto choke is stuffed coz i have to kick the accelerator to stop it revving to high (up around 2000 then back to 700rpm idling). Could someone give me advice on fitting a manual choke or whatever needs to be done
