Jesus Clip/door handle/ window winder removal tool

I bought this about 5 years ago, from Supercheap. It fits everything from the earliest Holdens right up to my VX wagon. A bloody good investment at $6.99 Me thinks. Anyway I just thought I'd whack up a pic to help anyone that may need it.

asbestos dust from car brakes.

Not sure if this matters to anyone on this site but if does it might interest you

A RETIRED mechanic has become the first person to win compensation for deadly lung cancer caused by asbestos dust from car brakes.

John Booth, 73, from Pottsville on the Far North Coast, was diagnosed with mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos fibres from James Hardie brake pads and linings during his 30 year career.

In a unanimous decision, the NSW Court of Appeal yesterday rejected an appeal by two James Hardie subsidiaries, confirming for the first time that exposure to white asbestos, or chrysotile, can cause the incurable cancer, and ordering them to pay him $326,640.

Convertible

Don't know if anyone else has noticed, in the most popular Holdens on ebay, scrolling across the screen, is a HB Torry Convertible.

It's got nothing to do with me, and why you would go to that much trouble with a HB?? But it looks like someone has put a lot of effort into the chop. From the pictures it looks like a bloody good job!

Check it out on the scroll or [http://cgi.ebay.com....|HERE]:)

Inlet manifold on 202

My inlet manifold for my SU carbs sits perfect on the head, in between the ORIGINAL exhaust manifold.
The problem is, the square and rectangle stoppers which hold the manifolds onto the head are to big, and will not fit in between.

I've been told to grind them down on the side that need's it, which i will do, however.. The bolts coming out from the head are almost 2-3mm from the side of the inlet manifold, making it impossible to screw the nut's on!!

It is a Speco GT-X manifold, going onto a 3.3 202 red, in a HJ. 12 port.

Any ideas are much appreciated.

How do I gat shiny bolts?

Help people,

12 months ago I had my bumper bars re-chromed and its nearly time to fit them back onto my newly painted HT. What i need to know is, how do i get my new bumper bar bolts all shiny like the bars? I would prefer to do it myself if possible, (thats why i started the resto), as the chromer is 3 hours away. I do have a bottle of Autosol if that is of any use.

Cheers, Ron

Here look

A rocker cover with the top chopped out keeps oil splash to a minimum when adjusting your tappets.
