  1. Got some more parts Roobars and a long range tank to turn this into a true Aussie battler. Bars are off an 83 4wd, and Ive just noticed they are not going to fit because I have the bumper with only 1 set of holes in it, and I'm not going to cut holes in it, so will need to cut it up and make something work.* Scratch that I looked again and they appear to mount to the towing eyes. Which is weird I thought. It also has a mount for an A frame on it that I won't need because a holden 6 will run forever)it's an auto. So that can go. Side bars should fit fine. Also from the 4wd I got the fuel tank which is 18 usgallon vs the 2wd 15. So should get about 100km more from it. Speaking of. I changed the thermostat and now it's actually getting to temp. Sits at half to the next mark depending on driving conditions (2 marks from red, 3 from cold) which seems high compared to what every Holden owner says they sit at (fans on at 1/4 to halfway) but maybe it's a NZ market thing. It won't go past that mark if I hoon up the Bombay's or leave it at idle with the fan on. Will see how it goes as the weather warms up. I'm using 1L less per 100km so that's a good thing. Also got a nos heavy vinyl floor covering without any shifter hole in it, so probably aftermarket. Should be ideal

  3. Some heat sink pipe could be cool to run in addition to the radiator
