Anyone know anything about this "distributed by stack" badge on the ass of my wagon. Safe to assume it's a dealer but I wouldn't mind finding out where abouts it was.

Stacks were a Holden Distributor in Sydney in the early days.

Here are some of the different types of Stack badges I have found over the years that Stacks were operating

Like a lot of older Holden stuff these and I suspect other badges are being reproduced and some are hard to pick

Thanks for all the info guys.

Now that I know where they were, do you think they will fix all the rust under warranty 😂😂😂

Plodding along getting the old girl ready for blasting. The outer sills will be opened up soon. What's tyectried a tested method of cutting them so the blaster can access the inner? Was thinking of just cutting along the two major folds and leaving a nice long window. I know it won't matter too much one I start cutting out the inners, but thought I'd ask in case I'm over looking something.

I was the same when I cut mine,  thinking where to cut and what to leave..  I tried to picture the sand blaster getting access to all the inners. I think that's the best idea.  I also thought it would be a little more ridged when travelling the more you leave on there...     But when it comes down to it.. the new sill requires you to remove back to spot welds top and bottom...


I would also recommend taking as much of that black seam sealer off as you can. Does not have to be perfect, just the blast struggles to move the big lumps. Especially in the rear quarters behind the rear wheels. As my blaster did not take that back to the metal  and I have found rust does grow under it... Undecided Undecided

Thanks cam. Same train of thought here, I know I'll need to cut more off later but thought it'd be best wait til after the blasting.

I would cut as close as you’re comfortable to the inner sill, leaving the turned up lip on top and flat spot welded strip on the bottom. Then grind out the spots on the bottom and peel off. Cut off the top lip horizontally and grind out the spots again on top. You may want to avoid cutting through the turned up edge of the floor panel when you do this, depending on what is left of it and whether it is welded to the outer sill lip. Then  you can assess the inner and clean up or replace. Take care around the A, B and C pillar bottoms of course which you are best to attack cautiously bit by bit with the grinder. Just my 2c worth.

Plodding along. Motor out. Turns over freely, unsure if it will go back in at this stage.

How good a shot with a welder are you?  I figure it's easier to repair what you've got . . .
