Hi all, Just after I returned from the Nationals in Canberra the under bonnet insulation lining on my FC came apart and I am just left with the ugly foam stuck to the underside of the bonnet. As a result, I figured it is a good time to explore other options for lining the bonnet other than just replacing what was there. Options I am considering include:
* Fitting silver thermal insulated lining
* Fitting an alloy "skin" under bonnet
* No lining and have the FE/FC era Holden shield logo painted professionally on the underside of the bonnet
* Coloured 5D or 6D Carbon fibre lining (no insulation)

I would be interested to hear your thoughts or any other ideas some of you may have used for your cars past or present. Cheers.

I think I might be picking up the wagon on the way over to Wangaratta at this rate   Roll Eyes

We dropped it at CEVA in Sydney on the 5th April
ETA in Perth  20th April

(Anthony dropped his sedan off on the 3rd and picked it up on Friday, just in time for the Curtin Car Show)

The wagon hasn't even left the Eastern states yet  Shocked
looks like it spent 11 relaxing days at the Sydney depot

I hit a similar problem with my EK ute, which I registered on Monday. NSW RMS holds a list of official "weights" (Tare? Gross? Supposed to be GVM but who knows) that they use for rego... they would not accept any other numbers. They even had a correction for a towbar being fitted. The number was pretty high though - 1600-odd kg for a ute - workshop manual says 1139kg kerb weight. Might pay to check to see if the rego authority has an "official weight" for an FE/FC sedan... the extra 1/2 tonne would make a decent V8 doable.

The official weights (pre metric) for NSW registration were,

All FE & FC sedans 20.5 to 21cwts depending on the model.
FE & FC wagons 22cwts.
FE & FC panel vans 21cwts.
FE & FC utes 20.5 cwts.

No not available, the last time I did one of these I used a plastic clip and trimmed it down to suit.

When I got my Standard sedan blue-slipped, the vehicle weights listed in the shop manual were not considered "authoritative", so I had to take my car over a weighbridge.

1050 kg.

7413278, shown from the back. Two of these clips are screwed to the pillar. The stripe sits on the top and is then pushed on at the bottom

I'm in the same boat, and am about to send my engineer a wish list to see what I can get "approved in principle".

I have read the same VSB14 and have noted - For certification purposes under Codes LA1, LA2, LA3 and LA4, the recommended maximum capacity (swept volume) of engines for passenger cars and passenger car derivatives is outlined in Table LA1 below.

I want to run a LS1 in my van, so I'm hoping to utilise the next paragraph in getting my engineer to pass it - Table LA1 does not apply to commercial (ADR Category NA and NB1) or four wheel drive off-road (ADR category MC) type vehicles such as commercial vans, light trucks, small buses, etc. for which there are no set recommended limitsGrin Grin

Keep us informed with how you go.
