69 HK Belmont - What should I do?

Hi Everyone,

I'm 17 and I've got some ideas of what I might do to my family's (bought new by my dads' grandma) HK Belmont Sedan. It sat in a well sheltered shed for about 10 years until I was old enough to like and be part of mechanics.
I'm pretty sure this was the base model car so is it worth restoring?
Controversially, I would like to make this car look as "modern" as possible (sporty I guess...), I'm really into old Jap cars but seeing as I already have this - including its' heritage - I may as well use it.

It has a rust hole under the right chassis rail at the very front. Is that patchable or does it have to be fully replaced.

sparking battery shorting out car

I've been having a fair few problems lately!
Today as I was driving the car just shorted out and stopped. No lights nothing. The battery was really hot and spitting small bits of the terminal off. We put a new battery in thinking that it had died but it sparked even more and the wires on the earth melted. The earth from the battery onto the alternator was sparking on the alternator end too. We are thinking it is in the alternator. The alternator was quite hot.

Any suggestions? Thanks

possible big end in 350 chev

Gday. I've got A Holden wb with a 350 chev. I've been getting a knocking noise when a reach about 2000 revs. It's more sounds like a slightly heavy flutter. It's only when I'm driving. Never does it in neutral. No matter how much I rev it. A few of my mate's reckon it could be a big end but I'm not too sure. We can't seem to diagnose the problem. From in side the Car it sounds like it's on the drivers side at the back of the motor. The more the revs go up the faster it flutters.

Any ideas? Thanks guys

Registering a vehicle without tags - NSW

Hello all,

Does anybody have any experience registering a vehicle that has lost its ID tags? Are previous rego papers along with a letter of sale sufficient? It still has the chassis no. Stamped on it.

Any help or knowledge from previous experiences would be appreciated!

HQ 73 Panel van

New user first time on any forum. I have just purchased a 1973 HQ complete panel van. It's been in someones shed for the last 10 years and is a Queensland car and looks like that could be the case. I have a 14 year old son and I decided to re live my youth and buy it and restore it with him over the next few years. It has all GTS parts on it including the guards,dash,bucket seats and third seat in the middle, On the compliance plate it states its a 3 seater and has flutes behind your head in the body work on both sides on the outside of course. It has a colour code that the paint shop could not find but I have found out via google that it was a 1 off silver metalic type colour.
Does anyone know much about these models and can you shed some light on what i have bought?

Steering clunk!

Hi all I have a clunk noise coming from the front right hand side of my wb panelvan, it only seems to happen when I'm turning left and hit a bump, I've been under the car and can't find anything that seems to be loose or hitting on the chassis! The power steering box is also leaking and I was wondering if this could at all be related. Any help would be great!!

Cheers
