FC UTE CAB ROOF CUT - FREE!!

I have an FC UTE cabin roof which I removed about 15 years ago from a badly rusted ute. The roof was straight and rust free the last time I saw it. It is cut about half way up the windscreen pillars and across to the back window about halfway up. It is free if you want to go and get it from Tarana in NSW, between Lithgow and Oberon. I will be there by the 3rd January and gone by about the 6th or 7th.
The house has been sold. It is too good to throw away. I live in Qld.
Cheers,
Ron

81 WB Caprice Price Guide?

81 WB Caprice - interested in views on what one of these is worth ? Interior good, windows very slow, radio, cruise and central locking not working. Not working A/C. Engine and trans overhauled many years ago - std blue 308 T350 - runs alright, quite a few oil leaks esp around valley cover. Suspension and steering seem ok. Brakes - pedal a bit low and spongy.

Radiators

I'm needing to replace my radiator.
Currently has an alloy unit fitted. Came in car at purchase, brand and age unknown. Has blocked cores.

I'm looking at a 3 or 4 row copper/brass unit as a replacement. Similar to original fitted product.
As alloy holds heat and takes longer to cool then copper or brass, as a metal.

Why have these alloy radiators become so popular?
Because they are cheaper?

Looking for explanations to help guide my decision on best unit to purchase.

Safety feature???????

We were loading our Kayaks back on the trailer this afternoon and I noticed a bloke in a fairly new X1 BMW frantically knocking on the windows and pointing at his family on the end of the wharf, about 20 metres away. It was 31 degrees up here this afternoon, so he was pretty hot in the car.
I walked over to his car to see what his problem was then started walking towards his family. His wife jumped up and ran back towards the car pressing the key fob.

Christmas shopping

"the sound of the exhaust has been modified to make it sound exactly like a real one" How do you get a Subi boxer 4 sounding like a V12 - 3 exhaust pipes per cylinder?
Someone's Kombi probably rusted away to nothing, so they put a new body on the floorpan.

Friday Funnies

A very sad day today. After seven years of medical training and hard work, a very good friend of mine has been let go after one minor indiscretion. He slept with one of his patients and can now no longer work in the profession. What a waste of time, effort, training and money. A genuinely nice guy and a brilliant vet.

VE Cruise control issue

Not quite so old Holden question.

Anyone had problems with their VE cruise control? Goes on and off OK but won't always "activate". Commodore forums say brake light switch may be the issue but I don't see any way to adjust it. Brake lights come on with the slightest touch on the brake pedal.

GTS dash wiring

I've got a HQ premier and in the process of putting a GTS dash into it.The car came with GTS clock already in the dash,my question is can you put a GTS dash in using the standard wiring loom as I have been unable to get a GTS wiring loom.I have all the gauges and was wondering if you can cut the oil warning light wire,the temperature warning light wire which come on in the standard fuel gauge and put electrical connectors and plug them into the back of the gauges.I am happy to run independent wires for the tachometer but I want to try and utilise the existing loom if possible.Any advice wou
