  1. I imported a Holden Commodore SS Ute 5 years ago from Melbourne. It cost about ÂŖ1600 to get it here in the UK , and took 3 months to get here. It was actually cheaper to import from Australia, than cars I have imported from the USA.
  2. Looks like it's one for you 😜 How is Australia's laws for lhd cars?
  3. Thanks, I previously didn't know the Finnish one's came with sump guard's, so when I saw one for sale, I had to have it 🤔 I like the idea of having standard factory fitted parts 😊 Although my MK2 Cortina is far from standard 😜

  5. Back in the barn today, re bleed the brakes, all good now , and made a small patch repair to the battery tray 🙁
  6. Well I found the exhaust was hanging too low, so had to re jig . Moves under its own steam now, but brakes needs it more of a bleed, had to move off the ramp for other work, so the brakes and out rigger will have to wait.
  7. Does your knowledge extend to knowing what colour the sump guard was from the factory, I still don't know , and I'd like to repaint it in the original colour, which maybe the colour it is now , but just want conformation. I should be getting the Mk1 back from the paint man soon, then I'll be refitting it up .🤔
  8. I've been putting off the out rigger replacement repair , but I guess that's tomorrow's job. Unless I can think of something easier 😜 to do instead.
  9. Just keep chipping away, set yourself a goal that's easy to reach, on to the next small goal, then you don't get bogged down or overwhelmed. And if you do , have a break.😏
  10. This morning's work was to repair/replace the missing gearbox core plug, that I assume got punched out of the gearbox when the ball and the bottom of the gearstick disintegrated. Put the propshaft back on, that I had replaced the u/j. Replace the gearbox and axle oil. Replace the engine oil and filter 😊
  11. This morning's goal, bleed brakes, fit lowering blocks, adjust free play on steering box. Completed 😁
  12. Working late shift this week , so I can get some work done in the morning's. This morning I fitted the disc's pads and calipers, thanks Tinman 😊. I also replaced the idler and steering box drop arm bushes. Tomorrow is brake bleed 🙂
  13. Front panel / cross member / anti roll mounts done and primered / under sealed. As it's a recommission, rather than a restoration, I'm happy with the results.🙂
  14. Won't be long now.😁 In the paint booth .
  15. Next job , outrigger , jack point ☚ī¸
  16. Welded up. Just needs sealer and filler to Finnish đŸ˜ŗ
  17. I'm don't think I could value them. But If I was in your possition, I would put them to auction , with somone like Mathewsons Classic Car Auctions in North Yorkshire – Mathewsons – Classic Car Auctions in North Yorkshire They would get the market value, good or bad.
  18. Thanks, we all need a bit of encoragement.
  19. Just the front valance to make up for this part of the job now.
