41  Technical Board / Restoration Help / Re: Boot Separater Board and Firewall Board on: March 17, 2021, 11:14:48 AM
You can get trim board from Daleys who are in most states, this is the closest material to original that I have found and use it for door trims, glovebox liners and boot boards.
I contacted Classic Gloveboxes a couple of years ago expressing interest in their firewall board patterns as I heard they were winding up, they told me they still going and that is the last I heard.

Looks like I better start the journey with the Engineer.

Which state are you in? There may be members who can point you to a good local engineer.

Brett does some great work, I believe John Chaplin's (Stash) Sedan is there for some work.

I had AutoTransformers fill the side windows of my FC Panel Van, they fabbed the panel and recreated the louvres.
44  General / General Board / Re: Wind lacing on: February 02, 2021, 06:05:07 PM
I wasn't sure if wind lace was used in the cargo area and now I know, each door opening takes about 1.7 metres so I generally sell 8 metre lots to do a Sedan (and now Station Sedans).

Any specifics on the rim and tyre size and backspace or offset please?

Not off the top of my head, and it's too hot to go out an check  Grin
I know the tyres are 185 and 245/60 R14
The next time they are off I'll measure up, BTW the rear guards have a slight pump to them.

11 years of ownership  Shocked
I had the side windows filled last year, then put her into storage for a while, back home with the final(?) wheel and tyre combo fitted.

50  For Sale and Wanted / Parts Wanted / FE/FC Panel Cuts on: February 13, 2020, 04:57:42 PM
I'm filling in the aftermarket windows cut into my panel van, it's roughly the size of a Sedan/Wagon passenger window.
Looking for cuts of the at least the front half of the side panels including the louvres.
51  General / General Board / Panel Van measurements on: February 13, 2020, 12:58:39 PM
My FC Panel Van is in the body shop to get the after market side windows filled.
Can anyone please provide:
1. The measurement between the louvres in the side panels (Front set was cut out).
2. Measurements for the internal bracing of the side panels, it is missing one maybe two of the front braces.

Thanks in advance!
52  Technical Board / Modification Help / Brake Booster Issue? on: December 23, 2019, 01:35:45 PM
After any tips before I start pulling stuff apart.

Back Story - My FE Sedan has LH/X Torana front discs and HR rear drums, LC Torana booster, master cylinder and brake block switch.

Sometime after it's last hibernation the Brake warning light came on and has stayed on since, brakes seemed hard to apply but were safe enough for driving.
Up on stands the other week we found the rear brakes didn't work at all, seized rear cylinders that we replaced. Bled the whole system, brakes are still hard, when first built you could lock up the brakes if you got on them hard enough, not now.
Pulled the vacuum line on the booster, plenty of vacuum. Pulled the PCV off the booster, we could hear it sucking air in once the PCV was removed so it is air tight.
I suspect the booster is shot, could it be anything else?

Sounds like you got it from Daleys, I get the same spiel when I buy wind-lace there. About the only guaranteed way to get the windlace custom made out of some colour-fast material.

Have you had a look at products like Scotchguard?
56  Galleries / Project Cars - FEs and FCs Under Construction / Re: Cams FC Resto on: May 29, 2019, 06:22:54 PM

I used to have a Tacho mounted to the A pillar.
Ed Ho had similar dash to your design but extended through to the centre grille, couldn't find any photos though.

This came up on my Facebook feed the other day, Jaycar have a 3G one for $199, put a SIM card in it and download the app to track etc
58  Technical Board / Restoration Help / Clean Vinyl? on: April 06, 2019, 07:59:37 PM
Ever wonder if that vinyl was worth saving or not?

Variable speed drill Drill, $1:50 round hand scrubbing brush, nut, bolt and a bottle of Jif.

Link to brush

The best part about this is that the brush has a pump action, disconnect the top, pull out the valve and I found a bolt that went straight in with no drilling, put a washer and nut on then tap the clear plastic a few times to break it off.
Just use low speed and go slow otherwise there will be grey Jif everywhere. I suggest hosing off if you can as a sponge and bucket of water take forever.
59  Technical Board / Modification Help / Speco Wooden Shifter Knob on: March 28, 2019, 07:50:51 PM
So I've got this original wooden Speco shifter knob.
It's in good condition, but it could be better.
Are these able to be easily pulled apart to facilitate a resto, or do I play it safe and leave it in tact whilst reconditioning?

Where's Lonsdale?  Tongue
Is he still going then? I'll give him a try.
