Vinyl spray colour UC torana

I want to re paint my parcel shelf and tidy up my dash, I have buckskin trim but the dash and shelf are more of a chestnut brown, what colour have you used ? Or what would you suggest ? Thanks.

Mechanic labour rates

Hey a general question here , what is the average labour rate for a mechanic these days (not a dealership). Some big work needed done on my jackaroo that i'd rather pay some one else to do rather than me working it out as i go along. I have no idea what the going rate is these days on the central coast NSW so not Sydney which i'd expect to be more expensive.
thanks
Al

WB Statesman Side Mouldings

I want to "restore" the faded side mouldings on my WB Caprice. The car is silver and the side mouldings in certain light/angle are looking pale and whitish. See the pic (not the best). Anyway I was just going to clean and respray but I'd like to confirm if someone can that they would have been originally the same colour as the car? Or would they have been different. I had a white one years ago and they were white so it didnt matter.

Question about LC/LJ Torana Body

Just wondering if anyone can help me out. I'm restoring an LC torana and trying to figure out the lines on my rear quarters. I have attached a pic and highlighted the area in question in red. Both sides of the car seem to have a bit of a low (not deep just a bit of a flat spot) Just wondering if that is normal?

Idea of price?

The answer is whatever someone will pay for it. Still, would like some idea of EH air cleaner with filter, water pump and bonnet latch striker plate. All are new, NOS, never been fitted. Getting engine bay back to new, original. Just bought dual note horns, NOS, for $120 postage inc.from Adelaide, stoked as only one of mine ever worked and sounded like it was an effort! Any thoughts appreciated, cheers.

FJ HOLDEN DIFFS

Hello All

Chasing info on FJ Holden diffs.

I have three diffs.Making one good one out of three

Two look the same and the third has an oil drainage bung on rear of it

The FJ rims fit both diffs so im guessing they are all FJ but would there be any difference on the internals and outer bearings etc?

is the diff with the bung factory or modified? it looks factory

Diff is going into a Panelvan

Thoughts please?

Detailing Turbo's pt2

Carrying on from the last turbo post, I have some other photo's, these are not from the same engine, they are only 300hp, these are brand new 1100hp V8 Scania marine diesel engines, they come to us, plain and boring, we fit the gearboxes and then repaint and detail the engines before sending them to the boat builder. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
Cheers,
Dave
