Putting A/C into an HZ ute

I'm considering buying an HZ ute without AC, however I would like to install AC without molesting the ute. The choices are find a complete unit from anything up to a WB, get a modern compressor and and install, or go for something after market (I prefer no knee freezer).

Does anyone have experience in this area and I would be grateful for any suggestions. I don't have time, tools or experience to fit myself so would be after someone to do it for me.

Thanks

Roughen those head bolt washers

http://www.enginelab... Interesting but does it apply to TTY bolts where perhaps the final torque angle might take into account the washer turning especially those I have seen with radial lines under the bolt cap obviously designed to ensure the supplied washers turn with the bolt e.g. these http://i.imgur.com/o...

Not-so-old Holden..

Guys, my VP Commonbore front doors are a pain in the ar$e to close. Slightly open the windows, they shut OK. Back doors, perfect, they shut with a slight *click*, as they should. The car is very low K's, so it's not worn out. Anyone got a quick fix for them please?

Pre-Filling Oil Filters

While this video (https://www.youtube.... ) about Cat Diesel oil and petrol filters, the principles are the same for the oil filters on our petrol driven vehicles and it does raise some interesting questions. If we are filling via the large spin on hole on filter we are filling at the outlet side and are probably doing very little in terms of priming the oil pump or oil lines.

Name this part?

Hi I'm a long time kingswood fan and just recently purchased my very first kingswood (1974 HQ) I'm just having a hard time figuring out what the name is of the corrugated metal strip that runs below the doors from the front wheel arch to the rear? Hoping someone can shed light on this for me so I can go about searching for a pair.
Cheers.

EH Front End Spacers

G'day all,
One of the spacers on my front end has rusted pretty badly. It's one of four that go through the subframe - the four subframe bolts run through each spacer to hold the front end on to the subframe. I've searched high and low for a replacement with no luck. Any ideas on where I can get a replacement? I was thinking that I could get one cut from some tube stock but they are a weird size...
Cheers,
Darren.

Who is pulling out their Old Holden for Australia Day?

My HT will get a run down to Scotts Head or Grassy Head this year to take the kids for a swim and a picnic. I WILL put my 60's mal on the roof racks and push the kids in on a few little waves.
No, I won't put those $2 chinese reject shop aussie flags all over the door jambs because a classic aussie Holden does not need overstating the obvious OR a "LOOK AT ME!, LOOK AT ME" try hard / wanker claim. (But that's just me and my thoughts guys.)
