Bit more done on the Dirty D

Got my 3 row radiator & tranny cooler mounted today.
I made up a filler piece to go in between the radiator & the support panel, I used 25 x 20mm alloy angle & I boxed the corners & painted it satin black after an etch & I finish off with a thin piece of pinchweld.

Car Cover

Hi guys, I'm soon to be losing access to a friend's garage that I've been lucky to be keeping my HR away from the elements. So it will have to live under a carport at my place that gets a fair bit of morning sun as well as some rain blowing in when bad. Not ideal but all I have for the time being. So I was going to put a cover on it to keep it clean and protect from some UV in the morning...does anyone have any recommendations? Pros and cons would appreciate any experience.
Thanks

Hydraulic accumulator.

I found out what these things are today.They are basically a fluid pressure relief shock absorber.
The one in our Rav4 failed at 5:45 this morning when I got in it to go work. I put my foot on the clutch pedal and it stayed on the floor, so I started the EH and woke the neighbours. LOL
When i got home I looked under the bonnet and saw clutch fluid sprayed all over the bellhousing.
I got my daughter to push the clutch in a and saw a stream of fluid squirting from a cast alloy housing in the clutch line.

Not all the money goes to the farmers, nor even to getting the hay to the farm, but last year saw over $350,000 go directly to the organisations FIVE employees.

Advice needed on diff rebuild places

Looking for wisdom from past experiences on best place to get my diff rebuilt.
Pretty sure it is a 3.08 10 bolt salisbury in my 253 hj premier wagon. I get a regular knocking sound, not really a whine. Been going on for over a year or so now, but im now worried it will suddenly fail.

Any advice welcome.
I am in Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

HZ firewall transplant

Hi
My HZ (pano) has a firewall too far gone. I have a HQ (sedan) donor car with clean firewall. I'm looking at unpicking the spotwelds in the floor just in front of the rear console bracket which looks easy enough but I'm a bit more scared about where to cut the sills. I also need the A pillars as the HZ is knackered so I'll need to cut that almost at the top. Anyone out there have tips for me or pics of doing it? I've unpicked cowl and plenum from a WB so have done that before and have them saved as good replacements.
So far I am aware;
