Yeah i could put it on the shelf next to the little dog with the nodding head Roll Eyes, if i had a shelf that is you may have failed to notice but it's a wagon Deano Tongue Tongue Grin Grin, when i was rewiring the old girl i ran extra wires to the back for rear interior lights, reversing lights and separate indicators.

When i went up to Ipswich yesterday the chrome plating place had shut down ages ago so ended up going to the Gold coast today, went to the place you recommended at Biggera Keith, met Kev and he came across as a decent sort of bloke who knows what he is talking about, he is going to grind all the corrosion out of the die cast bits and straighten out any little dents in the rest, for those contemplating getting chrome work done the exterior door handles are roughly $45 bucks each for rechroming compared to $70 bucks for the cheap imports and he said the old ones are a lot better quality, bumpers are $450 each, and the whole cars worth is about $2000, not too bad really for every bit of chrome on the old girl.

What i meant was i would not upgrade injectors leave them stock as fuel economy is excellent and their is no real gain unless you put a GTS can or something into the engine
No worries thanks Pete, most of my driving will be on the open road anyway so i guess there's no point in me turning it into a petrol sucking monster, i'll just get the injectors cleaned, got the intake manifold in getting powder coated gloss black, I'm doing the tappet cover in sting red and the extractors silver, so that should dress things up a bit.

Pedro

I got my extractors ceramic coated and they look heaps better than being painted. Ceramic coating also eliminates a lot of radiant heat under the bonnet from the exhaust system.

Reasonably priced as well and looks very neat.

The place I got them done was at Archerfield in Brissie.

Sounds good Craig, it would have to last a lot longer than heat proof paint too, would you have the name of the place where you went.

I don't know if this will be approved of by the moderators or not so i won't put any rants on here about why this isn't common knowledge, but there are a lot of blokes on here my age who would probably have skin cancers and after what i've been through if i can save one life it will be worth it, I got sick and tired of going to the docs and getting my skin cancers cut out, burnt off and dry iced and then a few months later they come back anyway, while i was doing research trying to find something to help with Mezza's cancer i found this stuff called black salve, if you google it you can find plenty of testimonials, photo's and videos of people who have used it plus after i started using it i found plenty of people around here that have been using it too, they have been using it on horses for years and it has been around for hundreds of years.





Day 1



Day2



Day3, the cancers are dead and you can see the eschars starting to form after about a week or so they fall out roots and all and you are left with a clean hole which heals over with no scarring.

Thanks Craig i'll give them a ring.

With the post above i forgot to say you can see all the small cancers around the main one where it was spreading if i'd let the doc. cut it out like he wanted to he would have missed the small ones and that's why they keep coming back.

Hey Pedro

I got me nuts all sorted. Won't be long and I will need to squish them into the hole , 'I've  been thinking of where else you could put the solar panel. You could make up a big ass solar panel and use it for solar collection and one of those wagon spoilers. Then if u ever go camping, there will be plenty of power.

Do you know how to squish your nuts into the hole mate Roll Eyes, i think JB described it on his post using a flat plate a bolt and a nut, it's heaps easier if you can get your hands on the proper tool for the job though, as far as the solar panel goes  Tongue Tongue Tongue Tongue Tongue Grin, it's amazing how well some of those solar lights with the led bulbs work though a mate has one set up in his 10 x 12 tin shed and it lights it up like daylight.

Pedro

A workmate has used the black salve with amazing success.  His day 1 experience was even more extensive than your photo (and I was a bit concerned at that point) but the end result was extraordinary, you could really see it work and no reoccurrence.  So far I have had nothing (38years old) but if I do it will be the treatment I seek.

That will do it.

Get your lip checked out sooner rather than latter.

I'm paying the price now for now for not getting stuff checked.
