HQ Coupe roof strip

Hi I am wondering if anybody can help me with some information about this strip that I have pictured for my HQ Coupe
I know that it screws to the roof of my car but these strips had silicon all over them and I am wondering does this need to be applied to the strip before I screw them on also is there a rubber in my kit that I should fit prior to fitting them on.

HD Ute floor

Hi all, I'm not able to become a member yet but I'd like some opinions {yes, i know all about opinions !!} I have a HD holden barn find ute, it was left for years without screens and windows, at some stage, water got into it and completely rested out the floors, front and back to the fuel tank, and up to the seam in the firewall, both the top part of the firewall and behind the seat wall section are rust free. I was lucky enough to stumble onto a guy that had a complete HR Premier wagon floor in great condition, including the bottom of the pillars and sills intact.

hz seam sealer

gday all you boys,

may i pls ask whether anyone can recommend what i
should do about tidying up underneath my hz plenum panel - where it comes out the sides and covers the front-top of the front doors.

it looks like there are some welds in there so i presume that stuff is seam sealer eh?

1) should i pick it out, rust treat the whole area, then use
seam sealer again?

2) is the seam sealer really necessary?...or is there something more modern i should use instead these days?

HZ Boot Mould holes

Has anyone ever drilled / re-drilled the holes in a HZ boot lid to use the correct boot mould clips?

Mine has a hole at each end, but nothing in between.

Would it be as simple as using a string line from one hole to the other, and marking drill points in a straight line?

Thanks in advance.

HR parts search

I've been searching for parts for my HR rebuild. Found this on Gumtree, been sitting in a Garage for 20 years waiting for me so I bought the whole car. Only engine and gearbox missing. A treasure trove for me! Got it for a third of what all the individual parts are worth. All usual rust spots done, subframe & crossmember in excellent condition.

CHROME PLATING PLASTIC PARTS

Hi all,
Has anyone had any experience or able to offer any advice about chrome plating plastic ?
The chrome has all peeled off of my 1977 Chev Caprice grill (think HJ Statesman) and I'm not sure what to do with it.
Any advice or info would be appreciated.

HZ petrol tank and fuel & temp gauges

gday all,

if any of you boys haven't seen a HZ petrol tank removed with 40 years of road grease removed, then here it is. i needed to remove it to service the sender, so i had to drop it. it looks galvanised and in pretty good condition really. btw, it took me about 5 hours to get all the crap off it.

i'm gonna spray it with a cuppla coates of 'motospray rust converter primer/sealer'. then finish it with 'wurth bitumen underbody sealer'.
are you boys happy with this combo?

1958 FC Special Sedan(Station Wagon)

Am trying to follow Rare Spares video on how to insert the inner door Seals on my wagon
Can anyone post a few clear pictures of this area on their cars so I can see the run of the rubber
There appears no steel channeling on the FC across the top of the door only the steel edge for the wind lacing to hang on.
So do the FE FC only have the inner seal across the bottom & up both sides of the door openings ??
& yes I know I should have noted 3 years ago when I ripped it all out but every old picture carefully avoids showing me what I want to see.

EH bumper? (See attached photo)

Hey All,
Could someone take a look at the photo and tell me if this is an EH or EJ rear bumper?
I think it might be EJ based on the brackets on each end.
Are EH & EJ rear bumpers interchangeable?
