WB van, hq parts?

Hi all,

I've decided to resto my WB panelvan. I'm a bit of an amateur so was hoping a couple of you guys withy some experience and knowledge would be able to help me out.

1st - HQ front end. I love the look of the hq. DO the hq guards, nosecone, clip etc go on a wb? Think I heard somewhere they don't? Is it at all possible?

2nd - has anyone cut the rear quarters and light section out of hq-Hz ute and welded them into a wb? I much prefer the tail lights from the hq-Hz.

I have a donor hq shell which is pretty stuffed but good for the rear end.

Running hot and using lots of fuel

I have a 1979 HZ 202 red motor that has recently started running very hot, using lots of fuel (1/4 tank to 40ks) and is hesitating/pinging at speed (100km/h). I can't find any fuel leaks and I haven't messed with the carby so i can't put a finger on an action that i have done to explain why it's started it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

IFS for my HR

Just bit the bullet today. Paid deposit for a new IFS from V6 Conversions. I'm told 6-8 weeks for delivery. Looked around & researched a lot over the last few years. The ability to fit all standard Commodore components to it really appealed to me. Best option for my street machine. Can't wait now!

EH radiator conversion

Have posted about my EH having overheating probs, when stationary or under load. Have done everything that was suggested, head coming off next week, to be crack tested, although there has been no indication of water and oil mixing, and cleaning/flushing water jacket. Fitting a HQ V8 radiator has also been suggested, what needs to be done to fit same, I would imagine dimensions would be different, presently running STD 202 with trimatic

Paint and Trim codes

Morning.

I've recently bought a 1974 HQ ute as a project, and I've a few questions.

From what I can gather from searching the net is that it is a '74 Belmont made in Sydney and came with engine L20 (202). There are no codes on the plate for trans or axle.

The paint code (568-15894) which I think is black. I'm unable to find a reference for the trim code (1885-35A). Though the glove box lid and A pillar trims are painted a bluey-grey.

Can somebody help me identify the colour and trim?

I've attached a photo of the plate.

Thanks.
