I was wondering, is it possible to put headers, extractors and supercharge my 179, but still keep it 3 on the tree?? if not, would it be easier to go 4 floor, or change to auto??

Photo's soon, stuff to buy and sell or swap

Hopefully I'll have pics of my all orig HD special (37k miles) up soon. I've decided not to lower it, however it will get extractors aswell as custom rims... Mint HT centres with HK monaro dress rims on the outer... hopefully 6inch front 8 inch rear... (I'd love to go wider but p-plates restrict)...

If anyone wants to buy some Interceptor rims, great nick, maybe need chroming, make me an offer over $150 for the lot

suggestions or help wanted

I was just wondering on some stuff those with a little more car knowledge can help me with...
I've paid a little too much for a practically mint HD special with 37, 000 miles and the orig books/pinkslip. I'm prob. not gonna get my money back so i was wondering wether, some eh mags (fats on the back). would look alright?
and wether it's worth finding the x2 engine, lowering it and putting extractors?? i know it's never good to custom old cars moneywise, but i think i wanna keep this baby so what's gonna be the most cost efficient way to make this thing nice???

Fitting an Electronic Dizzy

Wanna fit an Electric Dizzy from a 202 Blue motor onto my 202 Red Motor. I understand it is easy to fit BUT my problem is the wires. There are 3 not 1 like the STD Red Motor Dizzy (Points System)! Where do I put the wires etc?

Just a couple of questions

Gday guys I have just a couple of questions I would like answered if anyone knows the answers.

The track on the HD was narrower than the HR but can you still bolt on Hr Y frames and engine bay to a HD body?

The hand brake mechanism on the HR sedan, will it fit a panelvan or were they different sizes?

Were the windscreens on the HR and the HD different sizes also?

I also have a few parts for sale........ HD bonnet and left hand guard. HR bonnet, HD/HR panelvan rear tail-lift(no glass), Y frames for a HR (including engine bay) plus lots of little bits and pieces.
