This is what I did from a VZ dunny door not every bodies taste but I like them.

I reckon the shape of the VZ ones looks OK. I don't like the fuel door though - love the shape of the original cap, even if it protrudes.

Everyone's taste is different.

Re: Chev EK

I’ve got a trutrac in the wagon, one in the young blokes VL, and another one going into the daughter’s VL tomorrow. All BW78s, all 31 spline. They get the snot beat out of them, and have not missed a beat. Like any slippery diff they can break traction mid corner in the wet, but it is manageable pro...

Ouch. Sounds like every time I pull something apart... what should be a simple task ends up like There's a Hole in the Bucket, Dear Liza.

Re: Supplementary turn signal lights on sides of car?

Here was a quick visualization of a star I modeled in SketchUp and rendered in vizcom. 3 of these sequences together Knight Rider style might have looked cool about 10 years ago. That clear star looks neat. Mr Hasselhof would be proud... but not as proud as this one (the HEK Rider): https://www.you...

Re: Supplementary turn signal lights on sides of car?

Three guard "slashes" on an EK.
Special badge.
Front mudflaps (too low).
Curb crawlers (too low).
Accessory guard mirrors.
Front fender wind splits.
Aerial (usually only one side).
GTS guard flutes (Western Sydney bogan-grade upgrade).

Re: Tailgate struts

I put gas struts on the wagon tailgate... bit lighter than yours, but easy bolt-up. The gas strut mob asked me to weigh the tailgate, so I used a fishing scale. They then set the pressure on the struts to suit the weight. It was pretty close - the tailgate stays wherever I put it, but doesn't try to...

Re: FB ute

Finding that missing bit in the sump as glitter is bad enough, finding it whole would have been worse.

I lost a gudgeon pin clip once in a Mini engine. It went down between the bore and piston. Incredible carnage for a few milliseconds.

Re: FB delivery

Just thinking.... The fuel cap in an FB/EK is vented. The rear of the taillight is open to the cabin, and the otherside is close to taillight terminal spitzandsparken and hot bulb. Presume you run a non-vented cap, and run a separate breather hose (off a filler neck nipple) somewhere else, mebbe wit...

Re: Improved cooling gaskets - fourth round spares

The spare gaskets are slowly going out the door as various people want them. All good. One question that has been asked is how big a bore will these gaskets support. I was talking to the manufacturer about another project, and finally remembered to ask. The feedback from the gasket manufacturer is t...

Re: Canopy for ute

Shame it had an undisclosed issue. I learned a lot about selling from this forum. a) I'll tell you everything I know about what I sell, in good faith. Warts and all. b) If it isn't what I said it was, I'll take it back and refund your money. c) I'll sell it to you for what it owes me, or if you need...

Re: Canopy for ute

You could make a lot more room in that engine bay if you swapped the supercharger snout pulley for a smaller one.

Just saying for a friend :mrgreen:

Re: FB ute

302 lifters are the right diameter, but are HEAVY.

Doesn’t seem to be any signs of pinging. Any chance that the top ring had lost all gap and was pushing on that crown land?

Must have been a lifter famine at some stage. Of the half dozen or so blocks I pulled down looking for a crank, very few had lifters left in them.
