Coolangatta Show and Shine.

Any one going to the Coolangatta Show and shine this weekend. Should be hundreds of classics, rods and mods there, over both Saturday and Sunday.

I am taking down a little Inca Gold Coupe, if any one is interested, on Saturday the 8th, I will be in Zone 8 somewhere, drop in and say gidday and don't forget to mention Old Holden.com

I am a bit quite and not been on OH.com much the last few years, but maybe I am starting to come out of my shell.

Cheers,

Dave.

(And yes, I know I am supposed to have a HQ to go with the name.......not a HK...LOL).

I am going to try and get down for sticky beak, haven't been for a few years now.

Hope all has been well for you and good to see you'll be getting to play with the coupe for the weekend.

PS. I'll swap you a HQ coupe for a KTG, needs a bit of tlc though....

Maybe catch you there, if I am not with the car then Christine will be with it, get her to call me and I will round up with you. When did you get the HQ????

Maybe catch up with you too Adam.

Yeah all good my end, flat out working still....as always.

Ferkin HK head light switch gave out yesterday, I am just going to run them hard wired from the battery till after the show........to big a PITA to pull the switch and try to fix it between now and then. I spent an hour upside down in the foot well yesterday......just getting more frustrated.

TJS. Postcode (4505) If you don't know where you are going then every road will get you there!

If I do get down there, it'll most likely be Sunday, but I'll definitely catch up with you if I go (a couple of if's in there, but still trying to make sure it can happen at the moment).

HQ, I've had that for years now, still haven't got it underway yet! Too many projects, not enough time. Started a Torana hatchback in between the Monaro's (yeah, still haven't got into the HK yet either) :( , was getting the hatch to undercoat stage, then got the black four door Torry, as it was going to be a lot quicker and easier to complete & enjoy, but, you guessed it, still haven't finished that either, sigh!

The black one is all but ready for the blue plate inspection, just got to get the rear brakes working and it's ready :)

Footwells, funny that, I spent the day contorted in the footwell of one of the trucks yesterday, you gotta try and work upside down, while the rest of your body hangs down outside, lol.

Fekin headlight switches, I can't remember with the HK, could you not unplug the switch and just plug in the replacement under the dash, without pulling the old one out for now?

I can't remember how much room you'll have to play with under there, but it'd have to be a lot easier and neater than hard wiring up to the battery? You'd wanna make sure you hard wired through a relay too, otherwise things could get a bit heated under the bonnet, anyways, just a thought, I'm sure you'll get it sorted.

If your number is still the same, I'll give you a bell on Sunday, if I'm down there.

Yeah Bruno, if it is a mobile number you have it will be the same. I do not have a landline.

But I will only be there on Saturday mate.

We will have to catch up sometime soon though.

Yeah, it's the mobile number I have.

Looks like I'll be wandering down there on Sunday.

Oh well, we'll have to find another excuse to catch up

get on your knees outside the car and stick your left hand up under the dash and find the release button on the switch, pull the switch to full on and press the button and then pull the knob right out. I bought a new one on ebay for 20 bucks recently and it works a treat.
