panelvan utes etc

can anyone tell me why EH utes and panelvans (and probably some other models aswell) only came out with a key lock on the passenger side? is there a good reason for it? it seem a bit of a pain to go round to the passenger side every time u want to unlock it !

Interior conversion and Stiff door handles

Does anyone know of a different interior (mainly seats) that will either bolt in or can be put in a vk with little modifications made to them? Has anyone done this before?
I would need a mod plate for different seats, right?

I have very stiff door handles, so i took a look at them they appear to be a little corroded on the inside of the door. Has this happened to anyone before i was just gonna lube them up with some wd-40 or some grease. Does anyone have any advice?

EH Fender Ornaments

Gday from WA. I recently acquired a set of fender ornaments for my EH but don't know exactly where to put them. Is there such a thing as a NASCO fitting instructions sheet and, if so, could somebody send me a copy? Failing that, could somebody let me know where I should drill the first hole - I should be able to work the others out. Thanks in advance for your help.

EK parts

Just picked up a '61 Hydramatic Auto EK Holden for nothing, bodies in great shape with all pannels straight. Interior needs no work at all. Only bits I need are the rear blinker covers, break light covers and reverse light covers, also need a boot seal. Can anyone help me out? Checked rare spares.

Premier bumper overriders

I've heard that EJ premiers had overriders on the rear bumper as well as the front. (All EJ's had front overriders.) In all thre holden books & mags I've seen,I have never seen a photo of an original EJ premier showing the rear end.
Can anyone tell me if it is true that they had rear overriders, as mine doesn't and is generally very original but had a rear end prang some years ago.
If so, are they the same as the front overriders?

Drainage holes

Hi
Can anyone tell me where the water drainage holes are located in the air intake vents located between the windscreen and bonnet of an HQ. The previous owner seems to have painted the area with a bitumen paint and sealed them up.
Many thanks

So you have stuffed the thread on the bolt.

Get a nut and hacksaw a cut into it, when you screw this on to the offending bolt it will clean it and maybe fix the thread burr.

:)
I love handy hints.

Does no one realise how light old Holdens are?

After reading the responses to the bloke who calls his EK a "fat bitch" I was surprised that no one cared to enlighten this articulate chap in regards to the weight of an EK. An EK only weighs about 1100 kg, around half a tonne less than the latest Commodore! Old holdens are very light, making power increases all the more beneficial.

It saddens me when classic cars are allowed to fall into the hands of idiots.
