fj hub caps on 13" rims

Gday all,
Im chasing down info on the type of 13" rim that a FJ cap will fit onto. Ive seen plenty of pictures of deep dish 13" steelies with a FJ cap in them. I would recon that the stud pattern would be HR but to my knowledge the HR rims dont accept the FJ caps.... maybe I should get out the MIG, then they would stay on.
Also, while on the subject of wheels. has anyone ever gotten white-walls applied to their tyres? Is it a case of bring your tyre in and they stick on the white stripe, or is there a prefered tyre. (eg. no wall writing)..
Thanks guys, Deano'

Reconditioning Old Steering Wheels

Hi everyone

Am on a roll here, my restoration project is coming along nicely and I now have all the parts I need (except the Twin Carbies).

I want to get my EH Steering Wheel re-pearled white. I would normally barrel up to Harrisons (QLD) to ask, but can anyone recommend a Gold Coast business who will do a good job. Failing that Brisbane would also be OK.

Cheers

L

You Don Have a VH FAQ's Page???....'

"I have posted myself as a user, but I have no answer in my E-mail yet."
Well, Im at my wits end. I'm trying to rebuild my blue 202. I would like it to peform a little better than a stock motor, so I would like to maye rebore it to a 208 or so-on. To put it bluntly...I don't have a clue when it comes to the specs of doing up a 202, or what I can do to it within reason.
Basicaly I want to put a mild cam in her and flat top it. I have ran her on premium unleaded for 3 years, and found that she ran great. I know what I have to do when converting her to ULP.
Please let me know what I'm in for!!!!
To give you a helping hand...I want to put a Turbo 350 or 400 in it so I can get it moving. I've been told that a Tri-matic is no good for high performance 202's.
lastly......I will pay money for any helping hands and minds,seriously.
Contact me at...
psrlme@msn.com
THANK-YOU
Paul.'

No electrickery

No 240V=no oldholden.com so oldholden was down for half the day
No one wanted to pedal the bike either.(maybe a 138 is needed)
small SQL file error, hey there has even been talk of backups ! And more professionalism ! (woh)
Other than the power it has been a pretty sweet net link.
Ebay has been pretty cool, lets see where it takes us, things take time. Youll see if something solid comes.

Ebay.com.au and Oldholden.com

Here is a test for oldholden.com and the viability of this web community.
Ebay.com.au emailed and asked if we would be interested in playing "affiliates" and/or "possible relationship between our two sites".
We get $4 per person who becomes an ebay member after clicking though to their site, however as some have guessed it ain all about the money:).
So even if you are already an ebay member give a click on the ebay pic above to show them we exist. You never know they may make an entire subject called HOLDEN soon
