Monaro 2 Door Rear Screen

Hi,

We are looking at selling a Monaro 2 Door Rear Screen, which is in good condition (only 1 little scratch). Could anyone please give me a rough estimate of how much it is worth? Have tried to look everywhere for a price, but can't come up with anything. Anyone's help would be much appreciated. Can email me at cobiepc@hotmail.com, as 1st time on this site.

Cheers
Cobie

For those who remember me I'm sorry I haven't posted for a while. Been busy with work over xmas doing about 65 hours per week driving trucks.
If you have seen the pics of my ute you may remember r=that it was painted and put back together. Well I was unhappy with it, so I have pulled it apart again, and doing everything 120%.

Anyways..

This is just a big thank you to my cousin Reg, who took the time to seam weld and fill every join and hole in the body.

Anyhoo back to work I spose

Pics up soon

adapter plate

Hi i know you can get an adapter plate to fit a turbo 350 trans to a 308 trimatic pattern block.

But what about a trimatic trans to a turbo patern block,is there an adapter for that or does the block have to be re drilled.

What do you think would be the cheapest way out,and is the trimatic trans the same length as a turbo trans,or will the tailshaft have to be changed.

Thanks.............

To stripe or not to stripe, that is the question

Hi everyone,

I've been lurking for some time and all the info here has been invaluable.

My HQ 350 is almost finished, scheduled to be painted next week. I've already decided on Silver over black as the colour. My spray painter sugested however that I add black racing stripes ala the VE SS option. At first I questioned his sanity, but over the last few weeks the idea has grown on me. So now I'm torn between the two, either would look good, what does everyone think, I really need help to push me either way. Would it look good or be too much?

Salsbury into HG

Gooday,
I need some help, I have searched old posts and holdenpidia and can not find what im after. I'm looking at swapping my banjo for a saulsbury diff, I can not seem to find if there is a width difference between the the HQ and HG diffs and if there is a difference is it a major cost to get one chopped down? or is there a better option? (not 9" as it would b 2 big.)

thanks

Lee

VP wagon questions

Ok, I'm picking up a VP wagon really cheap from a friend. At this stage I think the only thing wrong with it is a minor dent in the tailgate and rear bumper (backed into pole). Doesn't affect the tailgate operation at all, just asthetic.

Now I believe that VN, VP, VR and VS tailgates are the same and should just bolt on, but what about the bumper? Anyone answer this?

I'm still tossing up whether it's worth while to replace or repair of just leave it as is. Anyone got an idea what wreckers are asking for these items in SE QLD?

Hi, I have a EK that I am currently doing up. I have a HR front on it and I want to run discs.

I have a booster, HR calipers, HR stub axels and discs. But what I need is some hubs to suit, or anything else that may be needed.

Does anyone have any they are interested in selling?

Thanks

What a let down.....

A few months back I went to the local scrap metal bloke down my way (Mornington Peninsula) in my HR. He asked if I needed any parts, I said whadya got? He showed me a HR sedan, complete, but said he'd already promised the motor and trans to his mate. We agreed on price for the lot, and I was to ring him and work out when/where to get it etc. I called past and rang a few times, him saying "yeah, I'm still waiting on me mate". Today I went there, and all that's left is a shell. He'd given away most of what I'd hoped was my car.

Badges

Some deadbeat knocked my GTS and Monaro badges off my 4 door. I bought a new set from rare spares and they are crap moulded pieces of crap. The pins snap off and they are just crap. I'm chasing an original set with the thread and nut, does anybody know where I can get a set?

Sump Gasket

G'day,

Just a quick question: does anyone know if a sump gasket to suit a 5 litre VN Commodore will also fit a 253 red motor in a HJ? It's the 4 piece kit with the cork sections.

I have seen evilbay advertise generic kits that fit HQ-VR, but they are the 1 piece foam looking crap, whereas I prefer the old style.

Cheers,

Shan
