Would love advice!

Hi Fellas (and girls),
I have a blue HZ wagon, powered by the meaty 202, with a 3-speed manual gearbox and the car is 100% stock, and in good condition. I was just chasing some advice from all u hardened veterans out there (Im only on my P's :( ) Ok, firstly, what kind of cost would I be looking at to put a set of 5-spoke mags on my HZ? Im not sure about wheel size, but I could find out.
Secondly, where in NSW (preferably near Tweed Heads) would I be able to get reliable parts such as extractors, exhaust etc? If I were to do my HZ up, what would u guys recommend, ie. what components should I change, keeping in mind that I'm more concerned about how she looks than how she purrs just now. And finally, where would I have any of the original moroon upholstery repaired/replaced?
Thanx heaps for ure time,
Ben'

Basics are what you need to concentrate on. Before spending big $$$ look at the simple stuff. Input: Carbie - put a bigger one on, Output: - extractors and exhaust, alltold the basics should cost you no more than $1000 for second hand gear. While you are there protect that engine with a better oil pump. Once these things are done you will have done the best for value, after that once your bank account recovers you can look at cams and manifolds/multiple carbs

firstly what coloured engine is it? if its stock it'll be a blue motor! turf it! there's no substitute for cubic inches brother! throw a 253 in it! but thats down the track! don't touch the [Naughty Pottyword]box 202! cosmetics should start u off! give it a good clean! u'll be suprised! try and stay away with the old muscle car stereotypes! they've had their time! don't dwell in the past! think dumped on its guts, eighteen inche wheels, neon lights, big stereo and subs and [Naughty Pottyword]!!! u got a wagon so it could be pricy? forget ur five spoke dragways! if u like mudflaps, a set of vs commodore ones would look good 4 now cause it's a cheap starting point!good luck brother!'
