Re: Respray?

Gday mate a lot will depend on if you can find an old school painter who'll use old paint. The current breed (here in OZ) won't even talk to you if you mention acrylic etc. All they'll use is 2pk.

PI engined 2500S here in OZ

Hi Guys just came across an ad for a 2500S here in OZ
Pics show a tidy PI engine under the bonnet mated to a 4 speed manual waiting on news as to an overdrive.
Any comments as I have always thought that the S was a HS6 SU car
Cheers

Re: loose Bearing housing studs

Hi Johnny

And yes If I can't borrow (not buying one) a small tension wrench then "use the force"
