You know you're getting old when...

The Coles add came on earlier, so I thought I'd show the (teenage) kids where it came from. They laughed and asked [http://www.youtube.c...|"Is that really them..?]

HT Bonnet Release Knob

G'day all. Long time reader, first time poster.
I am currently restoring an Oasis Green / Isis Green HT Kingswood Sedan and am trying to figure out a couple things...
1) Can someone please tell me what the correct knob for the bonnet release is??? Mine currently has a knob that matches the rest of the dash knobs with an outer ring and the word 'hood' written on it. However, a few searches have shown knobs that have a picture of a sedan with the bonnet up. Which is the after market knob?
2) Was this model produced with rubber flooring or carpet?

HZ dash air vent swivels

gday again,

has anybody bothered re-conditioning the HZ dash air vent swivels?

well, not the air vent swivel itself but the body it goes into in the dash.

the factory used a thin, sponge-like stuff.

it basically keeps the vent in the selected position of choice, otherise the air vent swivel
just flops down.

a) where do i get the thin, spongey stuff ?

b) any other recommended, a substitite material like felt or something?

thanks.

Red Engine Head Guru's Needed

Hi Guys, I'm cleaning the shed out and uncovered this wooden box with 6cyl red motor head in it, I bought it 15 to 20 years back at a swap meet. The guy had a HR or Torana (Can't remember) and the car was nearly new at the time he did this, he bought a new head from Holdens and had it fitted, not sure if it was for performance or economy. The Holden box the head came in is numbered 7438300 the actual head I have is numbered 7438296. The head it self is almost like new, hardly any carbon on it and the water galleries are spotless.

Shed

Haha, I just got back inside from the shed where I have been busy trying to clean out for the 'rana to live in. Anyway, I've chucked a tonne of stuff and it's still full of junk. Has anyone else got a shed loaded to the brim with treasures?

Some of my treasure is not treasure :(

Cheers,

Emu

NOS Sill Panels

Hi all,

I was cleaning out my shed on the weekend and found a pair of sill panels. They have a part number written on them - 7402836. The only parts manual that I have is from a FE and they are not listed. Any ideas what model they are from (I am guessing a HD/HR)?

Cheers,
Darren.

Thermo Fan Switch

Need to retro fit a switch to run thermos on my 5L, do the screw in type sender units with preset cut in temp do the trick, ie probe type non adjustable similar to idiot lite sender ? Have seen the Davies Craig style adjustable units that fit in via the hose, but prefer the screw in type. Anyone recommend a set up they've used that works well ?

Stupidity

I've just found out about a bloke who buys HK HT HG Holdens just for demoliiton derbys! Some of them are restorable before he destroys them. I know a few more idiots are who are doing this too. This might have been acceptable 20 years ago but how the hell is it still being allowed to happen today? Is there any way of putting a stop to this? Other model holdens and other makes seem to still cop it as well. It just really makes me mad.
End rant
