Early Commodore 5 speed

I have a 81 VH commodore with a factory Borg Warner 5 speed box. I have heard that these gearboxes can be quite rare in an early commodore and are a sought after item.
Right now I think the syncronisers are going, it changes hard between 1st and 2nd and back into 2nd from 3rd, and when I stop at lights or whatever and take it out of gear it is hard to get it back into 1st unless I use one of the other gears first.

The correct colour of HQ-HZ GTS wheels??

Can anybody tell me whether the GTS steel wheels as fitted to HQ's to HZ's were all the same colour??. The difference I have seen is in the 'low' areas; that is around the wheel nuts and raised parts.

The 'High' areas, that is on the ridges and around the rim have mostly been silver but the low areas seem to vary from Matt black to others with Semi-gloss black and others with a browny colour.

Blue 202 v Red 202

Can anyone tell me what the main differences are between a 202 red and a 202 Blue?

Are there any power and reliability differences and do they look different physically?

v8

a week or so ago during a vl v8 debate someone claimed that the 304 was 75kgs lighter than the 308. can someone confirm that this is bull[Naughty Pottyword]. i doubt that a 253 or maybe even a 202 would be 75kgs lighter.

Which Diff and stroker kits

Hi all. Just a quick question for ya's. Does anyone know which diff's came out in the ol' hk gts 327 or even the HT-HZ 350 monaro's and if so where would i be able to get one. Im based in perth but am willing to get it shipped from east or would i be better off slapping in a shortened 9".
Also would it be worth stroking it or just leave the original crank in her. If it is worth stroking, how far should i go and/or can i go. This is for a 327 sb chev

Info and advice would be much apprecitated.
Thanks people
Matty

HQ Ute Shell

I have a 1972 HQ ute that I have had for a while and am going to restore. The body is pretty rooted. It had rusted out in the sills, in the tray and around the back wheel arches and one of the previous owners has bogged it all up. This has not done the ute a big favour as dirt and crap has built up on the bog and it has all rusted out even more around the wheel arches. As I was inspecting it not long ago a large chunk of this bog and rust and dirt came out in my hands, leaving a gaping hole in the panel. The rust in the sills is also pretty bad and the tray isn't in the best condition.
