Door adjustment

Hi guys, I have a body question which is driving me nuts, I'm in the process of final fitting the doors on a HQ sedan, and the doors are shells with nothing in them, the gaps are good and they are lined up with the body line starting from the rear door first, so when I shut the door, it clicks twice on the pillar bolt and it's shut, but you can still move the door on the bolt, meaning even though it's technically shut the door can still move inwards or outwards approx, 2mm, and it's the same with the front door also.

WB Statesman Side Mouldings

I want to "restore" the faded side mouldings on my WB Caprice. The car is silver and the side mouldings in certain light/angle are looking pale and whitish. See the pic (not the best). Anyway I was just going to clean and respray but I'd like to confirm if someone can that they would have been originally the same colour as the car? Or would they have been different. I had a white one years ago and they were white so it didnt matter.

HZ Statesman lower grille

Hi Guys,
I am new to this site and thought i would post a question if anyone can help......
I have a 79 HZ Statesman that I am nearly finished restoring and i am looking for the lower grille. I know these are very rare to find which is why i posted my question here.
Can anyone help me find a HZ Statesman lower grille either in good condition or re-manufactured?
I have been told someone on facebook re-manufactures and repairs them ........ but trying to find the person will take time.......
If someone can help it would be highly appreciated.
Cheers

Resto help

Hi, I need some help. I have a HQ sedan that has recently been blasted and etch primed. After blasting I've come to realise just how bad the car is. I need a few panels that are not available from rare spares/kingswood etc. I know anything can be fabricated but it'll be a hell of a lot cheaper to do a cut and shut..

How do I remove chrome tail light bezel

Hi Guy
Removing the chrome trim on hx van rear tail light surround for body work. I have the two screws out and I can see the pins on the inside. These look to be simply pushed in and should lever/tap out. Is that right? Don't want to snap off of course. I removed some 25yrs ago but there were millions of them around then.

Wb ute fuel cap

Hi all.

I'm in the process of going right through my fuel system and replacing all the rubber hoses.

While cleaning the fuel tank out I found a handful of components that look like they may have come from a fuel cap.

The cap I'm currently running is very basic with just a simple rubber seal and a very small breathing hole, but that breathing hole tends to leak fuel when I have a full tank and I'll turn around corners on winding roads.

Fuel sender repairs

Hi all.

I'm in the process of repairing a leaking fuel sender.
It was leaking from the soldierd joint so that's been re soldered. I was lucky enough to be able to remove and reuse the original press on clip that holds the sender wire post in place. Unfortunately now it's leaking from the rubber seal that's seals the fuel sender Post.
