    Losh's VR Ute build thread

    Just found these on Repco, not sure if they would be available when they have 25% off next but worth a try. https://www.repco.com.au/en/seat-covers-vehicle-accessories/interior-accessories/floor-mats-custom-fit/sunland-car-floor-mats-charcoal-2-piece-tpg29062/p/A5430236 I still need to sort...

    Losh's VR Ute build thread

    Just spent an hour or so on the old headliner removal. I got the windscreen pillar trims off and both need replacing. They were damaged when I last took them off, as some rough arse before me had snapped the clips off and had glued them on with silicone. Fortunately I had a couple of pretty good...

    How much oil do your rockers get?

    I've run mine without the covers and it's not a huge amount of oil. After a few minutes it's enough to run down the back side of the head and make a small mess. If in doubt pop one of the covers off and run the engine.

    Losh's VR Ute build thread

    Picked this up today, it looks the bomb, so much better than the job I did a couple of years ago, or thereabouts. I managed to get it done for $150. He knocked off $10 because I swung past the upholstery supplies and picked up a roll of webbing for him. I might get the old one out tonight or at...

    Losh's VR Ute build thread

    Ordered these today. I think they will require a repaint but it will be easier to fix up these rather than try and paint a pair of Exec black ones. Hopefully this will also fix my partial functioning left mirror.

    Windscreen for Holden VU

    Don't you have windscreen shops over there? Our windscreen places can get pretty much any glass for any car. Sometimes it can just take a month or so to get one in.

    What next will they try to flog for stupid money ???

    https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/154661659179621 $1000 for these few parts.... If the console is worth $50 the MC worth $0 does that mean a washer bottle is worth over $900?

    Is it ok if I let master cylinder go empty?

    Are you sure the ABS will get air in it from just a gravity drain? If you put pump the pedal it will for sure. I would have thought you could just gravity bleed the lines and not get air in the ABS?

    Steering rack problem

    I can say my spare rack of a VR Executive wagon has the pipe. Its above the two oil lines, hence why I probably never noticed it. I will check the ute still in a week or two and have a look.

    Steering rack problem

    I'll have to have a look at mine next time I can get the ute over the pit. I don't remember seeing an extra pipe.

    Steering rack problem

    I might be mistaken but I thought mine had flare nuts and pipes, unless that is something else? I remember them being loose and leaking a fair bit, so we tightened them.

    Electric window rubber

    They can be tricky. Winding the window up and down when removing and fitting helps. Or you pull the window out but using the winder normally means you don't have too.

    Electric window rubber

    The front Bailey channel used to be available from Holden. They may still be. Other than that it's a matter of finding a good one from a wreck.

    1999 VS SIII S 5.0 Ute

    I tried to get one of the filler neck boots the other day. The one of the wreck was slightly torn but better than mine. Problem is they pretty much can not be removed without tearing the boot to buggary. I gave up as I was gonna destroy it getting it off the filler neck. Only option I see is...

    Roof lining unstuck

    Quick update I have mine dropped off and the bill will actually be around $160 and not $100, $100 was just the labour. It's now going to be $20 to clean it up and another $40 for the lining material. Having said that I went to a place in Town, before work and he quoted me $350. My advice is shop...

    Ebay bar cover

    Cheers @two-bit I will wait a few weeks as there must be a 20% storewide coming up soon and I will grab one.

    Ebay bar cover

    $243 for del only, too expensive, have to find a cheap SH one which is not damaged, just maybe a little flaking paint. So far I'm looking at $125 for SH one that just needs a strip and paint. Hoping to do a little better than that.

    Roof lining unstuck

    I can pull one from a ute in around 10-15mins. I just pulled one from a VS wreck and it still has what looks to be the original soft grey material Holden used. I'm dropping it off this eve to get recovered and hopefully fitted later this week. My biggest issue will be buying glue and insulation...

    Indicator stalk with cruise

    Thanks for the replies. Looks like I'm going for the $25 junk one..... Probably have to replace it again in another 2 or 3 years but it is what it is. If they are all the same no use spending more than I have too

    Indicator stalk with cruise

    Ahh that's what the ACC button is for. I'm pretty sure it didn't work at all.

    Indicator stalk with cruise

    IIC you should be able to press it and it will bring you back up to the original set cruise speed without touching the pedal. It's a feature that you use when you hit the brakes and don't want to go the slight hassle of resetting the cruise speed using the pedal each time after brakes are touched.

    Indicator stalk with cruise

    Same, but what about the other button behind the set cruise the one that's closer to the cluster? Mine does nothing and never has.

    [Ecotec] VX V6 Supercharging

    10 PSI I seriously doubt you will need an $8k 4L60e build. I can get mine built with stronger parts and plenty enough to handle 190rwkw for around $2k or better plus another $300 to remove and refit. A HD 3500 stall is under $1000. I have one down from that 3500 stall just not furnace brazed...

    Indicator stalk with cruise

    One top button says Set Coast, that ones fine the other says Resume ACC and does nothing when you press it. I thought it should automatically bring your speed to that which was set. On my other cars they had the latter function. Cruise works from anything above 40kph IIRC.

    Indicator stalk with cruise

    I have a switch on the current stalk that does nothing. That's why I'm not sure if that button on the cruise stalk is something maybe higher end or newer models had. It's the button that resumes the set cruise speed after you touch the brakes.

    Indicator stalk with cruise

    Not sure if they have the same features but I know the stalk is the same from 1994 VR to 2000 VT.

    Indicator stalk with cruise

    I'm a bit the same, who's to say the $62 one is any better than a $25 one?? Holmart ones used to be around $60 but I expect they would have sold a reasonable product.

    Indicator stalk with cruise

    My cruise works but I have had cruise on other cars and the cruise on those had more features than my Commodore ute cruise has. I just don't know if the issue was the switch from new or whether the ute's cruise is less advanced than other 94 model Commodores and Stato's?

    Indicator stalk with cruise

    Yeah, I'm trying to find decent one. The brand names on ebay are not instilling any confidence in me. Mine is probably three years old now but the original one lasted well over 10 years. I don't know whether I just buy another $25 cheapy and at least have properly working indicators? I do a long...

    Indicator stalk with cruise

    Anyone know who sells a decent cruise indicator stalk. I bought one from eBay and it's failed the indicators don't switch off after turning left. It clicks back bit stays on and I have to push it off. The other issue is some resume coast never worked. So unless the ute doesn't have that function...

    How do I know if the ute has an airbag, as well as looking for some spares.

    The above instructions are good. It does mention the tangs but basically you squeeze the two clips with two fingers and pull the switch out of the grooves.

    Alternative Fuel Pressure Regulator

    Was the above discussed on here back then? I remember a reasonably long thread and what you said, was the outcome, they can not be bought new. It's weird because VR and earlier can be still be bought and they are not outrageously expensive either.

    Losh's VR Ute build thread

    Went to the wrecker again this arvo. I bought a replacement left gutter trim off a VN and a rear bumper reflector. Also bought another headliner board, all up $50, Head board was in reasonable shape but had a couple of small holes. I will pay and have it retrimmed, possibly this week. For...
