Spray gun

Hi all, I need some help on what type of spray gun is best used for undercoating? I've been told gravity will be better (by my dad). But thought I would get a second opinion. Also what nozzle size would be helpful too. Thanks in advance.

Friday night good idea.

It probably wouldn't cost the developer any more to do this than it would to excavate a massive underground carpark for this building.

I think it's brilliant.

Best tire size for HQ ute

G'day,
ive just finished a full front end rebuild that included every single replaceable part on the front of the hq bar the pitman arm and idler arm. totally reconditioned callipers and new rotors as well. so as you can tell im hoping to get it right the first time and never touch it again accept for a grease and brake flush every so often.

what im wondering is what have people found to be the best tyre size for the Q. i want something thats going to be fine in the wet but not too heavy to steer with, but in saying that a little extra weight for the sake of wet weather handling and stopping is acceptable.

Lowered HK HT HG how much?

Has anyone lowered there HK HT HG by 50mm front and rear? I will be running a V8. Did you have any problems (ie tyres scrubbing) in doing so? Any tips / thoughts? There is a bloke on ebay who will do 50mm lowered front king springs and front/rear adjustable Koni shocks for $660. Does that sound like good value? Cheers.

rocker cover breather?

Evening all, just having a few drama's with a mate's speedway car. It's a vb commodore with a blue 3.3 but with a heavily modified red 9 port head. We bought the car a couple of months ago blowing no smoke where it has sat. We have now fitted the motor into the new race car and apon firing it up it's blowing a bucket load of light blue smoke out of the exhaust. Tends to be more once it's warm. The rocker cover has a breather at the front but the rear outlet has been taped closed ( how we got it ). Do we need to put a breather on the rear of the rocker cover as well?

VS Ute Diff in to HG

Hi Everyone,

Got a few questions for guys that have done these conversions before.
I have a HG that I'm putting a 350 chev with T350 trans to a Borg Warner diff out of a VS V8 Ute.
The questions I have are will I need to shorten the diff? What rims are you using?
Is the VS Ute diff longer than VN? Then there is the front brake upgrades was thinking if I have comodore on the back might as well go comodore on the front, can you get nice old school style rims in comodore pattern to suit the HG.

Thanks

VK diff rattle or something else?

So there's this dull, loud rattle coming from (I think) the back of the car. Only audible on deceleration and braking, and slows down with the car. All suspension/bushing has been checked and is fine/replaced. Does this sound like a diff issue? Easily fixed or does the whole dman thing need to be rebuilt? Could it just be exhaust or heat shield?

HQ Grille Badge

Hi, I have a sept. 1971 Hq 2 door monaro that is just about finished getting done up. I need a grille badge to replace mine. It is the black and silver one with the lion on. I have been told by rare spares that only about 5% of HQ's came out with them on and they were never reproduced. I am wandering if somebody might have one in decent condition that they are wanting to part with?

please email geeh@bigpond.com

Thanks

Question re: HR purchase offers

HR Widow: query; i am intereseted in getting a feel for potential buyers for my husbands' HR. Until 18 months ago, was fully functional, registered and operational. Maintenance costs have meant that we cannot afford to keep the vehicle on the road. Would anyone give me an idea of the possible value of a 1967 HR:
Additional specs can be provided, if interested.

Cheers
HR Widow.
