Mr Gasket 3 butterfly bug catcher template?

Hi All,

I have a bug catcher I want to put on my HZ but I don't want to screw the bonnet up with trial and error cutting it, does anyone know where I can get a cut out template for it? or does anyone have one mounted that they could trace the hole in their bonnet and send me?


mystery trims

mystery trims

G'day folks,is anyone able to I'd what these trims are out of, got them in my collection of useful automotive stuff. I got them for the vents and not sure what they came from. The only thoughts I can come up with is HQ-HZ statesman c pillar or maybe boot sides. They don't seem big enough for boot sides and I thought the c pillars would be covered by the hoodlining.

Attachments show them next to HQ coupe? Centre console and HQ-HX coupe rear 'door' trims for size comparison.

Cheers for any help.

factory shifter on turbo 700

Has anybody managed to use an original q-z t-bar shifter and fit it to the original console in a car with a turbo 700 fitted? After being told it could be done I fitted a mega shifter and really don't like the look of it or driving with it and would much prefer the factory look. Thanks for any help

Clutch pedal

Hi all
Just wanting to know the difference between 6 cyl and v8 pull clutch pedals, I have been told there should be 2 different mounting holes under the dash but mine only has one.
Is it possible to use either pedal or will the pull length of the cable be incorrect
I am putting 308 and 4 speed in car which was originally auto
Any and as much info would be great

202 radiator sock a beauty

gday all,

i've just come back from doing 11 hrs of highway cruising in my hz 202 kingsy doing 100 km/h 'ish.

while i've been trying to plug me leaking thermostat housing cover (4th time...), i pulled out me radiator sock
from the upper radiator inlet.

you can see from the photo it's working really nicely - keeping me std 3-core coppper radiator clean as.

so IMO, these socks are highly recommended for our old girls.

getting the clamp to seal down over the sock is a bit hard - i've used 2 clamps before ok.

btw, anyone know the brand of hose clamps that don't have any screw gooves? i want some that are all flat.


Help Needed

Hi guys, I need get some seat covers until I get my front seats re-upholstered. Went down to my auto shop but for beige ones they start at about 200 bucks which is a lot more than I want to pay to be honest as its only a for a stop gap until I get them repaired. Would these fit? If not id be really grateful for any links for similar priced covers that would fit the HJ-HZ seats. Thanks in advance :)

HZ Kingswood dash lamp cluster

It's been a while since I last posted, but I have a question regarding the lamp cluster in the standard dash for HZ. Of the 6 lamps in the centre cluster, I know one of the bottom two spaces is for the fuel economy lamp, but the use of the other eludes me so far. A couple of people have said it's for temperature, but does anyone have any photos?

Any help appreciated.

Cheers, Evan.

M20 gearbox linkage nuts

Can anyone tell me the size of the nuts that connect the linkage plates to the selectors on a M20? I measured them as 24 tpi but 5/16" or 3/8" don't fit. It is in between??
