custom sway bars

Has anyone any knowledge or experience on getting a sway bar made for custom application ?
Thinking like the v8 HT-HG sway bar . it has a woop in the bar to clear the oil filter ........but instead of the woop around the oil filter, i need a woop to go around the harmonic balancer .
Thinking i can cut'n shut a standard bar to suit it then the maker can use the design as a rough pattern

Just fitted the twins on the Dirty D

On the first start up the single carb was way too small for the new engine combo, my intention was to run in on the single Stromberg but it's way too small for the task.
So the on goes the X2 inlet & twin
Strombergs & all of a sudden it's idling much smoother & just needs some fine tuning now.

rear shocks for lowered hj

I have a HJ GTS Monaro sedan which was lowered by the previous owner. The problem is that whenever it is put on a hoist the coils move out of their seats on the body of the car. I've measured the point at which coils start to get loose and I would need a shock with an extended length of 450mm.
I did put some slightly taller coils on the car but I still have a gap of about 25mm when the car is jacked up. I like the look of the car and would prefer not to go to standard height coils.

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.

More Dirty D Goodness

On the home stretch now with the X202 swap, I've mounted a tranny cool for the 253 spec'ed trimatic & I've since repainted the engine fan from silver to Chevy orange to match the engine.

HKTG fans - New poll posted

Which style mags best suit HKTG holdens?
(vote bottom RHS of page.)
This one is a tricky one for me. I reckon quite a few of the old school mag styles suit. I Have a set of deep dish 5 slotters I pulled of my kingswood 25 years ago and im going to start cleaning them up and polishing them over the next few weeks & months.
The standard rims and spats are coming off. I'm losing the sleeper look!

HZ Ute - Metal Tops for Door Trim?

G'day folks,
I'm looking to upgrade the door trims in my HZ ute at some stage in the near future and was wondering if anyone knew of a company doing re-pro metal tops? There is a bloke on ebay that sells them, but only with his trims. Kingswood/Resto Country don't do them, neither do Rare Spares. I could re-use the ones on the ute already, but it would be nice to get a new pair so I can send them off to the company that make the trim I want and not have to drive around without door trims while I wait. That and new is good.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers.

Holly Sniper EFI 2bbl or 4bbl ???

I am trying to decide on 2 barrel 2300 or 4 barrel Holly Sniper EFI for my EH.

I have a reasonably worked 202 blue motor.
The head is pretty good it used to be on a speedway car (red block with a balanced bottom end and produce power to +7000rpm.
The bottom end is a reco blue 202 with standard bore.

I currently have 465 holly on it with a Cain manifold that I modified to fit the blue head.

What I want to know is should I run the 2bbl system on the 4bbl manifold with an adapter or put a blue motor manifold back on there with a 350 holly adapter plate?
