Being on the road a lot every week (I'm a truckie) I obviously see a lot of traffic, one thing that strikes me is how often you can tell when someone's going to do something stupid simply from the type of car they're driving.

Invariably it's a commodore in the VL to VS range (or Fords from the same era), lowered, tinted windows, set of rims, and more often than not... a P plate on display.
While I don't particularly care about speeding on it's own, changing three or four lanes at a go, tailgating, and generally aggressive behaviour are things I see quite often from drivers of these vehicles.

VHT Spray on Vinyl Dyes Or Similar... Re-Dying Interior And Trim?

Has anyone used these sprays ?
I was just wondering what the best way to dye my seats and trim would be (cost effecitve)

My trim and seats etc are a browny orange vinyl and they look horrid, i would like to dye them either red or black.
What would the best way of doing this be ?
Spray on dyes or rip it all out and dye or even worse ... buy all new seats and fabric?

This includes the roof, sides of the doors etc.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanx!

Best One-Tonner

Hey all. I'm not great when it comes to old holdens, but i am thinking about buying a one-tonner for my next car. What i wanted to know is, which one-tonner is the best/most popular? As in, with commodores, everyone wasnts a VL, what one-tonner is most popular?

I wont necessarily get that one, but i think id be in good shape if i got the car that is best known. Alos, if it makes any difference to what model i buy, i want to remove the tray completely and have the rear chassis visible.

thanks in advance

Sound levels for Motor Vehicle and Motorcycles.

Well a while ago i asked why motorcycles never seemed to get defected for sound levels... and i asked the question to the EPA and they informed me that the limit is 96 d(B)A for most 6 cyl and 8 cyl cars and The noise levels for motor bikes are as follows:
100 d(B)A FOR ALL motor cycles manufactured before 1/3/84
94 d(B)A for all motor cycles manufactured after 1/3/84
ALSO
All Bikes built after 1/3/88 must also conform with Australian Design Rule
39A, covering design of the silencing system (exhaust, manifold, tail pipe,
etc).

Warning: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (111) in /oldholden/includes/database.mysql.inc on line 12

Warning: MySQL Connection Failed: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (111) in /oldholden/includes/database.mysql.inc on line 12

Heads up something might be goin wrong with the server?
