For sale HJ Ute body off rebuild Inj.308-Supra,Less than 900Klm's

I know i will regret selling my ute but it is impractical to keep it seeing i have only travelled 800 odd k's since May 2008 when i completed a 4 year body off rebuild.
I just don't get the time.
For full particulars please send me your phone number/ email me through OH, basically i took the body off had it blasted, all rust (wasn't much) was removed and plated, then painted in Mercedes Zircon Silver. The only things which weren't rebuild were the diff and gearbox, however i did replace the rear axle seals and bearings.
All front end bushes etc were replaced, new discs, brake lines, rear brake shoes, springs/ clips, drums, wheel cylinders etc.

modifications

Hi all i just read the thread about the bloke putting abs on his EH. probably not a bad idea, but the other bloke has a point with modifing vehicles that all should be aware of and that is if you modify a vehicle in any way and that change can be determined as the reason an accident occoured and someone died you can be in the deep end, as they will always look for someone else to blame.

Anyone got a list of 308 and/or 253 bore tolerances?

I'm chasing the tolerances for bores on 308's and 253.

4" is std for 308 i've read but i'm wanting to know how bad a say 40thou 308 has to be worn before it is too far gone for even oversized rings and must go to 60 thou etc.

I would imagine that there is a list dictating 4" +42 thou = too much etc?

If anyone can list these for the 308s and 253s that would be awesome,

Thanks,

Mick

Wiper Blade Removal

Hi All

How does one remove the wiper blade carrier assembly, not the arm, not the rubber refill. You know, the spring loaded assembly that the refill fits into that has a pin through it to attach it to the arm itself..
I have a horrible shudder on the HG daily driver and with all this rain is driving me spare. Thought if I changed the blade assembly I could get some peace and then listen to Barry manilow cd's without the noise.

Cheers

Rod Smith

HK ELECTRIC WINDOWS!

Just wondering if anyone out there has a HK HT or HG Premier or Brougham with factory-fitted electric windows? If so...I'm just after some info on where exactly the wiring harness runs...mainly between doors and body (before I start putting holes in the wrong places!!).
