Assistance please (If you want to) :)

My gorgeous wifey has entered a photo comp on facebook for 50's and 60's pinups at the Longford rock & rods show in Tassie this October.

Miss Rock & Rodz

To get into the final she needs votes on her entry pic, Her pinup name is Miss Bea Hayvin

Her pic

She spends much more time behind the camera rather than in front of it, so I'm just trying to help things along for her. If you click on the "Her pic" link above and "like" the pic, that would be fantastic.

Thanks peoples

To keep it on topic, I'm hoping the prem will be taking her to the show once the 400 is in the engine bay :)

202 timing issue

Hi all,

Firstly, i put a timing light on my motor again today because the mechanic told me to check my timing. It was at 6 degrees advance at idle but then at around 2500-3000rpm it had 40 in it. Which is obviously way to high. I backed off the timing to around 27-28 but then it didnt want to idle. I presume this means the dizzy needs some attention or a new one purchased. (By the way i'm running a Bosch HEI dizzy) I had another one fo the same dizzy out there which seemed in better condition so put that in but then it was trying to say it had around 25 in it at IDLE.

Engine reconditioned in the Geelong area

Hi guys,
AS you will be able to gather from my questions below this is my first project so excuse the ignorance!!

My HR currently has a 202 in it and I am looking at putting a 186 back into it. I have one that I purchased as well as a yella terra head. I am looking at getting everything reconditioned before I put it in the HR with a pretty mild cam put in it.

Can anyone reccomend someone in the Geelong area?

I want a thorough job done and just looking for a nice strong motor nothing over the top. Can anyone reccomend what else that I should get done?

And what price should I be looking at to get the reconditioning done? (including the cam)

HZ chrome gutter rails

gday all,

i'm doing a back-to-metal respray of my kingsy#2 and, next year the same for kingsy#1.

i'm suspecting the source of a water leak could be coming from underneath me roofrack. i'm sure i noticed some sort of body seam join up there.

i posted a story\photo about the RHS rear quarter rust hole last week.

could water that enters my boot come from up there? if water can come from up there, could it cause the rust hole? anything's possible i suppose....

pls see photos?
