What fuel

What Fuel do we all run our old holden 6's on. I currently drive a vk it only ever gets 91 unleaded in it, the head on this 1 hasn't been done up for unleaded eventually If I ever rebuild the motor it will get done up for unleaded. I don't bother with any additives I don't drive that hard usually I'm asking this as I was surprised at some of the answers in another thread by blokes saying to use 98 why bother how much further in k's per tank does it go? My oldman did the same that motor went 10 years out lasted the car.

trimatic question

I have a trimatic, i beleive from a VC commodore,(in a FC holden red 6 with a eaton supercharger) i was rebuilding the valve body and got the last three springs mixed up, the manual i am using is LJ/HQ, the later trimatics seem to have different springs in the valve body and i was wondering if anyone has a a manual, im sure this is in the very last page of the GM workshop manual for the later commodore trimatics, i need to know the colours for the following springs. "1) "low control valve spring" 2) low speed downshift timing valve spring" 3)" high speed downshift timing valve spring"

hard work

Now the major part is over, nearly at the fun bit, just sorting through making sure I have everything...
All the panels are on, just have to do some final alligning of the front panels, then I can put a cover over it and leave it till we move....
Then after some more hard graft cutting it back and buffing, I can start on the fun part, final assembly.....
:D

doors on

Flow coated yesterday, then 3 coats of clear.
Clear is a little more orange peeled than I would have liked, as I put it on thick.
doors on and lined up, new hidden wiring harnesses made and installed..
Just waiting for the cowl panel now to install the front panels, silly me sent it away to be chromed....

natural light

This is a pic of the colour with some natural light, you can see the pearl coming out, I'll try this arvo to get a pic with some sunlight on it to show the flake.
I'm kinda feeling like I'll need to recoat the other panels and clear over uncut paint, given that I think the metallic will look like sh!t if i clear over a cut back finish...
Does anybody know how long I can put off clearing over the finish?????????

closer

Ok Painters,
How long is the most I can wait before applying clear coat.
This is a pic of the finish, acrylic, top coat, off the gun.
I have cut back the other panels and shell, but am at a loss as to whether I can clear over the uncut topcoat, or whether I can clear it later(I have to move house again :/ ).
Or whether I should apply another coat of colour on the rest of the panels to match this finish, then clear, or cut back these uncut panels and clear the whole thing.
Main question is, how long can I wait before it is too late to clear coat.

How to Build a High Performance Holden 6

A 35-ish page document/website on what does/doesn't work when building a Hot Holden 6: http://oldjohnno.id....

I stumbled across it in a Link from the Bolwell site.

He makes some VERY good points throughout it. Just be warned, it WILL take quite a while to read it all...

Cheers...Dave

Relocated to Emerald QLD

Hi All,

I've just moved to Emerald (QLD)

Just seeing if there's any OldHoldeners roughly in this area?
Is there any car shows throughout the year to look out for?

My HR Project is still in Brisbane (no where for it here). Flying back for a week every few months to try and make a little progress on it.

Cheers
Dec

Paint v Rust Proof v Bitumen

Have just pulled the front guards and nosecone off the LH,it has a bitumen type coating on the inner guard. What's the go with this, is it better scraped off, or can you you paint over it or rust proof over it etc. There isnt any rust in the thing at all. Is the radiator support a satin or flat black? Any advice would be appreciated, Im trying to keep it as stock as possible. cheers
