Question of curiosity.

I noticed when I made up my custom air cleaner that one of them had embossed lettering on the front of it & I was sure to make it the front one to add to it's detail, anyone know what model it's from?

HZ bumper bar gap

Hi all, first time poster here.

Are there any backyard quick tricks or modifications to achieving an even bumper bar gap? Panel shop have corrected as much as they could without butchering anything.

Cheers. Paul

EH ignition circuit issue

Hi All,
Any feedback is welcome.
A quick run down on my car:
Red 202 in a EH special sedan.
Electronic ignition/coil. (Resistance wire has been spliced to the ignition wire just behind the ignition switch so it should be Getting constant 12V)
Battery is mounted in the boot. (Large gauge welding cable to the starter motor)

Parts for 202 Electronic Distributor

Hey all,
Just in the process of upgrading my HQ red 202 to an electronic distributor to get rid of the points. I already have the distributor and coil, so the parts i need to know are types of plugs, leads, dissy cap and rotor that are best suited for the upgrade?
What are best simple and straight forward parts suited for a plain and stock red 202 with no fancy carbs or manifolds or anything on it.
Cheers

Importing wheels from u.s.a

Hi guys,
So I’m up to the stage of putting some nice aftermarket wheels on my hz. Just like to know any feedback or anyone with experience in importing wheels from the U.S.
I have found some wheels I want to get on the internet but not sure if you have to order for an American car I.e camaro
Obviously having an hz Holden they don’t have those cars , and just want to know, do you have to order for an American car or does anyone know what American car has the same hubs and stud pattern as Holden hz?
Any feedback much appreciated, Thanks

engineering report problem

I was wondering if anyone knows what the requirements in Victoria were back in the late 80's or very early 90's to keep a cars engineers report after it had been registered using it, or know of any current engineers who did reports back then who should know laws at the time regarding keeping the report, as my father has lost or misplaced the engineers report for his car that was previously engineered and last registered over 20 years ago.
