    I really suck at finishing them though. There are lots of half finished things stashed about the place.

    Forgot that I did a bit of window clearing from this as well. Tomorrow I tackle the drivers door and intrusions.

    Also found my first rust bubble under one of the welded sections around the rear screen.

    So much win bringing this back to life. Are the van doors the same as the monaro ones? Im guessing you just about everything else you need to get this back together though

    Van doors are different but I picked up a pair of rusty coupe doors and the chopped ones off it have rust free frame sections to fix them.

    The thing I don't have is any kind of trim. I'd go bankrupt trying to put an interior in it or any of the stainless back on.

    Meh, trim is over rated. Keep the race car vibe and just put 2 front seats back in for now, maybe some dynamat, new carpet and a headliner if you cbf eventually.

    I noticed it has a full custom welded in dash, hopefully not too hard to put a original one back in?

    The dash looks like a bastard so it'll probably end up with the WB dash. They normally don't fit properly in a Q but I think that is the least of my worries.

    I have a GTS column and wheel that'll go in it and I'll probably grab a pair of velos or similar.

    Are you going to cut the firewall/tunnel out of a sedan and weld it in?

    I reckon your HQ 2 door is an ex Dirt Circuit car, rather than ex speedway, C is for Ceduna over on the S.A. west coast.

    Also the rear roll hoop has a complete cross rather than a single diagonal.

    For shits and giggles you could post a couple of photos on DirtCircuitSA.com and somebody will tell you the history of it and how it had a bajillion HP 253 in it....

    The C is for cowra speedway in NSW apparently. It came down from Mudgee and sat in a mates paddock for a few years.

    Was talking to a guy that raced against it back in the day and he said the car sticks in his mind because it hit his torana and rolled it in 96.

    Dug this out of the shed. any HQ cunce know if I can use my HJ guards with it? I know they don't have the cutout for the bar but that is nothing a little bit of persuasion could fix.

    The answer is a resounding "Fuck no!"

    Guess I need Q guards or to pull the HJ front off the other one.

    If I start buying new parts like that then this budget monaro build will spiral out of hand.

    People want waay too much for parts though.
    Nos. Forget about it.
    parts for our f series are approx 3.50 landed repro.
    I just wish the same for old aussie machines. Not holding my breath though.

    Just use what you got lying around for now. Maybe some ratty second hand HQ guards might come about sooner or later for the right price. Good progress though from what you started with!

    I've put some feelers out for some cheap Q guards. Also a single light front so I can see if I prefer it.


    While i'm on the topic of left over HQ parts, does anyone want the 3 Speed out of it with the Speco floor shifter?
