Gave the beautiful girl a sponge bath today. Don't want to fill the doors with water and help the rust in any way.

I've had her for about 9 months now. Love driving her, missus in passenger seat, black lab Scooby on back seat, window down, arm on sill. Doesn't get any better.

Very tidy car, what a way to spend a day gee I miss that

Thanks too mckackie. Yes drains are clean but it's just as easy to wipe the dust off with a damp chamois. There is a little bit of rust coming thru now, I'm hoping no more. It seems pretty solid. Was repainted by the previous (first) owner before he passed away. Seats need re-springing and upholstery and rear suspension needs new springs, but other than that she is in good nick.

It's raining!

I might be considered a wimp, but I don't take it out when it's wet. To be honest, I don't even know if the wipers or headlights work. I have other cars for that. It gets a run most weekends - hasn't rained around these parts for a while...

If keeping stock steel wheels, I always like to pop a set of chrome dress rings on 'em.

If you're canny, they're cheap as muck, too. At the wreckers, it's practically impossible to find a matching set, no matter how hawk-like your eyes.
Instead, have a squiz on your preferred online sales/auction site for a set. I picked up new set for $40.

* scrub your tyres with a really firm brush, to take off the dull grey top surface, (or just 'black' them if you're totally pressed for time),
* whack a bit of polish on the hubcaps and rings,
* stand back and admire the 'new' look - a bit like rubbing some Dubbin into your favourite dull old shoes: very smart indeed!

HK'ing.

When I was washing the wheels I thought these hubcaps could do with a polish. Some dress rings would look good too. I like 'em on the Monaro wheels as well. I threw away a set many years ago when I found some Monaro rims to put on my other HQ. Doh! I'll have a look on evilbay.

I've not used that before. On the chrome hubcaps? I noticed in a previous post that you suggest using oven cleaner on bonnet hinges. Is that a spray on thing? (I've not used oven cleaner before - we have a dirty oven...)

Yeah John, on the chrome. It brings things up beautiful (be sure to keep an eye on them, but I've left stuff in too long and never had a problem). And yes to the oven cleaner too.. The money you save by not cleaning your oven you can use on the HQ. It's a win-win. (Actually, it's a lose-win if you like clean ovens).
I took pics when I did my hinges, I hope I can find them. I'll put them in my shed. The hinges still look good. I'll get the name of the oven-cleaner for you. Feel free to give me a poke in the belly if I forget..

I have a hubcap soaking right now. I got before and during pics, just waiting for the after. I'm thinking it works GREAT on rusty chrome, but be careful with bare steel, it can remove everything to ..well even more bare steel.. So what you've done may need to be treated in some way to seal it. I've done HEAPS of (push)bike bits and it's UNREAL how it comes out. I actually did my Postie-bike shin-guard frame thingy about 2 weeks ago which was rusty. You'll be impressed at the pics..
I'll keep you updated with pics..

I'll pick up some CLR tomorrow and have a play on the weekend..

Being the tight-arse I am (and a bit of an environmentalist), can you re-use the solution or do you have to make a fresh new batch up every time?

Nah, I'm a tightass too, John, just ask my kids (Do we need that light on?). You can use it again and again. I haven't kept a lid on mine either so it evaporates. I just top up the water a fraction. It's the same batch from day 1, I've added more water and a second lot of CLR.
That hubcap I had soaking didn't turn out as good as I'd hoped. It's clean but not perfect. I'm thinking the CLR is perfect for rust on chrome (see the mudguard in my link), but so-so on grime.

Make sure to get pics for us eh?

It's slowing down in WA too. Not that I know about the teaching business, but I did have a shoot for a teaching couple last year who were concerned they may not get a placement. But our two stream economy is still two stream. Mining or ????. That's my experience anyway. Even the mining is dying off as the construction phase becomes the production phase.

We're selling off Australia but not everyone is enjoying the proceeds. Just my opinion.

I wonder how many remember that 'Neville', and the 'concrete Aboriginal's name being a reference to Neville Bonner.
Bit of a legend, that guy.
He was the first Aboriginal Australian elected to federal parliament.
Back in the late 60s, he was asked why he chose to join Liberal Party, when the natural political choice would have been for Labor. He replied that if he was going to achieve change for his people, and other Aboriginal peoples, he needed to get into the government, rather than achieve stuff-all from the opposition benches.
He stood his ground on many issues, for which the Libs finally kicked him out.

Yes you are Tim. As opposed to some others I know, you are full of less savoury stuff.

The thread started off OK, but it did get a bit silly. Worth a laugh though I reckon, but I'm sure it's been done many times over on this site.

I'll be picking up some CLR this week Tim, and I'll be sure to post up some before and afters.

ooh, I'll look forward to the pics, John. It's a really cheap, easy way to get rid of rust on chrome. Me and the kids have just restored done up a cuppla bikes. They WERE rusty, now pretty well rust free and shiney. All from using CLR.
On another, but similar subject, I built a contraption that did the (bike) wheels. It's hard to soak a complete wheel, so I made this. I'll get a pic, and put it in my shed.

I saw your gizmo for the mudguards. Very simple and effective but I'm not sure I would have thought of that, well done! Work will taper off considerable soon as we head into winter so I'll be doing lots of cost effective (read cheap) stuff around the house and cars. The missus just got retrenched so I've got a helper too!

Not that gizmo. This is a battery-operated contraption. I must admit, I was a clever bugger building this... stay tuned, might put a pic up tonight. It's not really oldholden, but oh well.

Mr's 2HQ's will get another job no probs. She's well loved in our small community. And if not Mrs 2HQ's can work for me, so it will all work out alright, it usually does...

I'm assuming that the tyre was only left on the rim because they were display pics. CLR wouldn't be tood good for rubber, would it...? :-\

'i'm definately shore that guage wont work with my tuff bango diff and Opal sydcrome box,if it goes though my grill,and I put the breaks on I realize its better with the glimer belt & tunned holly and Ederbrock duel feul webber gaurds, wiht etc primmer.'

Thanks Michael, but I dunno? It doesn't seem to have affected the rubber. Yeah the wheel was just placed in there today for illustration purposes.. But when using it I do leave the tyre on, but let some air out. This helps with the grip and to keep things turning.

It's one of [http://www.ebay.com....|these.] But I got it at a 2nd hand market for 50cents, untested. I thought for 50 big-ones, it's worth the chance..and it worked.
