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?

wiring harness

A gentleman in my car club is doing a retirement project, hes 71, and just came back on a over seas trip.
He has a 71 HQ Prem 25th Anniversary, and the wiring has been chewed by a little furry bugger in the dash area.
My question is,
Has anyone rewired there car with one of those pre kit wiring harness from Rare Spares ?????
We thinking, better to be safe than sorry and just rewire the hole car, JUST IN CASE there is more the hungry little bugger chewed.

Any advice would be much appreciated

Fitting Power steering to HQ with a 350 Chev

Hi

I am trying to fit a Power steering pump to a SBC 350 Chev with a short water pump.

There is only one bolt hole in the head on the drivers side and two holes for mounting (in US) a low mount alternator. If i try and use these holes the hose from the water pump hose is in the road.

Even if i try and low mount the power steering with the alternator above on the passenger side i would then need to run longer hoses so would need to make them up.

Anyone come across this before? Help...

many thanks

HR wagon seat belt mount position

Hi all,

I'm working on a HR rebuild with my Dad (the original Old Holden guy ;)

We're putting three-point seat belts into the back seats, but we're not sure where to attach the top mount of the seat belts.

Has anyone put these belts into a HR (or similar model) wagon, and be willing to share advice or photos of how this was done?

Thanks very much all.

Cheers,
JB
