Door repairs

This time last year I fell in love with a hk kingswood which we drove back from Adelaide and since then we have named her Adelaide

That journey was helped by the wonderful people at Murryville who helped us flush out her radiator on a hot Sunday ,a big thanks thanks to the publican of the Murryville hotel .

Anyway I’m three doors down and am replacing with rare spares panels , loving that the front doors are not so bad as the rears doors have been , mis welding novice here

HG holden troubleshooting

The other day i was driving along and all of a sudden the car started to cut out like i was running out of fuel and then turned off completely. It then started up fine again and in neutral and park it idles fine but as soon as it goes into drive or reverse the revs drop to the point where it is struggling to idle. It also cuts out (turns off) whenever I am coming to a stop.

It has a half a tank of fuel (filled the other day) so its not running out, but does anyone know what could be causing this?

Car is a 186 Trimatic. Daily driver and performed fine until this point.

Going back to Bench

I have a HR ute that has some unknown buckets and want to go back to the bench. I have been offered an EH bench seat for the right price and was wondering if anyone can tell me if the seat mounts are the same. I would measure it, but is stored under a house and getting to it to measure is difficult.

She's finally home

Evening all. Just thought I'd share a couple of pics of mine and my girlfriends new toy. As you all can see, she needs alot of work to get back on the road. But we're both up for the challenge. She's a 1967 HR Special with factory 186 and 2 speed powerglide. Drums all round. Only question i have at the moment is what's involved in changing to disc brake front. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers ray

G'day,
I am about to fit Lap sash ( non retractable) belts to my HT wagon. I was hoping someone who has done this might ba able to offer up some tips or even photo's if possible. I have removed the back seat to find 2 captive nuts. Not sure if they were meant for belts or not but my main concern is the pillar. any advice would be greatly appreciated
