Red or blue 6 cyl air con compressor bracket HQ onwards

Image: 

I just found this on Speedy Air Spare (Gold Coast) web site. http://speedyairspar...
It's the same compressor bracket that I have on the 202 in my UC it's to suite the smaller Senden 508 style compresser. I just thought some of you might like to know. Also it may not suite pre HQ or LC/LJ due to narrow sub frames.
Cheers Shane

Have I buggered the motor?

Morning all!

As a few of you may have heard, theres a bit of water lying around Queensland. So yesterday on the way home from work, I've gone through a water patch... car shuddered for a bit, but I've made it out the other side. Was a lot deeper than I had expected.

About 20 minutes later, I'm cruising along and the engine starts pinging, and theres a burning rubber smell. Pull over and pop the hood, steam and smoke everywhere. A thermal fan blade has wedged itself into the radiator (right down the bottom), and punched a nice hole. I'm guessing this might have been caused by the deep puddle I went through.

Steering column spring and top snapring - What is the use?

Dear Friends,

I have sourced a HX/HZ steering column and upon dis-assembly, I found that it has only the lower snap ring, the spring and the top nut only. This is an auto, on the tree setup.

I got to know that there are 2 flat washers on both sides of the spring and another snap ring on the top groove to retain the spring pushed towards the upper ball bearing. And then the top nut coming on top of the steering wheel.

HQ door trim inner weather strip

Image: 

I fitted some inner weather strips I thought I'll post up a few pics of I do it.
The factory strips have staples which need grinding off then the new strip will need to be trimmed down to size & then riveted into place. I used bifucated or split rivets.

More hinge cover tips

Image: 

Here's another tip I thought I'll & it worked a treat.
Now I mention yesterday that these covers are fasten to the hinge via little pins & all my of mine are broken. So I decided to carefully drill a small hole into the broken pins & I screw in some small timber flat headed screws.
Cheers Shane

Time for a tip

Image: 

Howdy all!
I spent a fair bit of time cleaning up the plastic hinge covers for my Torana seats. After a few go's at scrubbing I just weren't happy with the way they looking.
Then I had a brainwave so I headed down Peps (auto store) & I pick up a can of satin black plastic bumper paint.
So after a few light coats I'm very please now.
Cheers Shane
