    Wheel spacers

    An insurance company can and will deny a claim for being unroadworthy...Fitting wheel spacers to a car, when the car wasn't equipped as a factory option, deems a car unroadworthy... The porsche part...Here's is your quote , "Porsche option a 5mm and bigger with studs to suit I believe"...The...

    Wheel spacers

    It is illegal to fit wheel spacers unless the car came from the manufacturer with them...Porsche is the only car I can think of that has them from the factory...I can't say I have ever heard of a car being approved with them being fitted aftermarket wise. Porsche wheel studs are the same...

    Wheel spacers

    It seems though you have the wrong tyres fitted then, because they shouldn't rub. Wheel spacers are illegal and dangerous....Dangerous being the worse of the two

    So where does your mechanic say the noise is coming from? Or is he just having a stab in the dark?

    EV conversions to Commodores?

    I saw on netflix, a show called fastest car....They had a Datsun 1200 (I think that's the model), with an EV motor....It was doing 9 or 10 second quarters with that car.... So if you have netflix, look it up....It's a rather interesting car

    Psst. Wanna buy a Torana?

    The Lloyd site said 1977 to 1979.....Hence why I have asked about the years 1977 and 1978, accepting that 1979 he may not have used this car

    Vy series 2 clubby- srs airbag light and instrument cluster replacement

    I have this light on as well....Mine is caused by resistance behind the steering wheel....ie, sounds like it is dirty behind the steering wheel, with the contacts...Haven't taken the steering wheel off yet to clean for it to be reset

    Psst. Wanna buy a Torana?

    May we ask where you get this information from? Did Harvey race this car in 1977 and 1978, or just one of those years or neither?

    What's your favourite commodore and why

    Another point for older cars...Degrease an engine, the worst things to worry about is getting water on the distributer and having to fork out $60 for another module (in the case of an electronic dizzy) and water down the carb and around the plugs....Newer stuff....The coil pack...What's that...

    What's your favourite commodore and why

    Still too complex for me :) I'll admit it took me about 6 hours to do the lim gasket, because I've never done one...Hence being time consuming....But on the flip side, the older stuff is cheaper to fix and not as time consuming....

    Losh's VR Ute build thread

    Yes they are....I believe they are designed to empty your wallet quickly, especially when things start to crap out and you have no idea how to fix them....So you're paying to have them fixed to boot :)

    What's your favourite commodore and why

    Any that don't have a computer....So easy to fix on the side of the road...Also so easy to replace parts....Nice example...I have a VY....To replace the dash, I have to get the right one for that particular car....My VC...Unbolt one dash and bolt in another and away I go...No spending 6 hours...

    NBN Scam

    I have both an Aries box and modem with my NBN.....My modem has some lights flashing, and some fixed on....IMA they are the same colour, but still flashing all the same...The aries box the lights are fixed on. That being said, good to get a headsup about a scam going around

    Are VF's going to be collectables?

    I did get pinged for speeding 10 or 15 years ago, inbetween Inglewood and Goondiwindi, which is in the South western corner of Queensland. They got me for doing 115 in a 100 zone....If anyone is familiar with that area, they will know, it is 100 + kilometres of trees and paddocks.....Before you...

    Are VF's going to be collectables?

    Loud Knock in rear end.

    I wouldn't be complaining too loud....It cost me $604 to get the tailshaft rebuilt for my VC I had the centre bearing, CV, unis, 1 uni joint piece, and rebalanced....Originally I was quoted $550 but that blew out big time Just for reference...The tailshaft has a centre bearing and a C.V....The...

    Unusual dash problem

    Not sure.....I mentioned the issue with the dash and he gave me that price...He also said, if it had just blanked out, rather than blacked out, he could have fixed my current dash....I didn't even mention that I'd be taking it out....In saying that, if they want to charge an extra $130 to remove...
