    Hi Dave, thanks for the comment. The thread on your rebuild has been a great source of information for me, so I appreciate what you've done, and look forward to seeing more updates.

    Cheers

    Default Front off

    Made more progress on the Wagon over the weekend. The full commentary and pictures are on the blog, but here are a few piccies. I'll have some rust to deal with, but it could be a lot worse. Hopefully I can get the engine and transmission out soon!

    Front panels are off:


    A bit of rust in the front nose panel


    A bit more rust in the bonnet


    Guards are also rusty in the usual place at the bottom, but I've lined up a new pair - hopefully they will be better!

    Default Buying stuff

    Didn't do anything on the wagon over the weekend, as I went to Bendigo and had a look at some great cars.

    During the week I picked up a couple of things.

    Some replacement guards (no rust!):


    and a BIG complete kit with screws and clips etc in it:


    I'd be interested to know if anyone else has a similar kit, and whether there was much you still had to buy.
    Here's the contents of the kit:

    • 1 Air Cleaner Wingnut
    • 8 Armrest Screws
    • 3 Bonnet Cable Clips
    • 2 Bonnet Cable Clips Screws On
    • 1 Bonnet Cable End Screw
    • 2 Bonnet Cable Screws
    • 8 Bonnet Hinge Bolts
    • 4 Bonnet Stabiliser Rubbers
    • 2 Bonnet Stop Adjuster Bolts

    • 80 Door Seal Isolators
    • 80 Door Seal Retainer Clips
    • 4 Door Striker Bolts
    • 40 Door Trim Clip Isolators
    • 40 Door Trim Panel Clips
    • 30 Door Well Scuff Plate Screws
    • 3 Door/ Boot Lock Retainers
    • 5 Fuel Line Clips
    • 2 Glovebox Bump
    • 2 Headlight Adjuster Spring
    • 4 Headlight Adjuster Nylon Nut
    • 4 Headlight Adjuster Screws
    • 6 Headlight Bezel Screws
    • 4 Headlight Bezel Speednuts
    • 2 Headlight Bezel Speednuts Nylon
    • 20 Kick Panel Clips
    • 4 Loom Clips Firewall
    • 1 Loom Clips Firewall Large
    • 4 Loom Clips Wheel Arch
    • 30 Panel Bolts (the correct imperial thread)
    • 30 Panel Speednuts (imperial thread)
    • 1 Radiator Overflow Tube Retainer
    • 4 Radiator Retainer Rubber Nut
    • 4 Radiator Retainer Screws
    • 1 Slave Cyl Nut/Bolt
    • 1 Steering Knuckle Clip Upper
    • 1 Steering Knuckle Dust Seal
    • 1 Steering Knuckle Seal Clip
    • 40 Trim Exterior Moulding Clips
    • 20 Trim Stud Replacement Pop Rivet
    • 12 Wheel Arch Screws (Stainless Steel)
    • 12 Wheel Arch Speednuts
    • 4 Window Winder Retainer Clips
    • 4 Window Winder Spring
    • 32 Windscreen Mould Clips
    • 1 Wiper Pivot Seal

    The other item on the shopping list is a rubber kit. They seem to range in price from $750 through to $1200. Again, I'd be interested in what other people have bought.

    Cheers

    I bought off Auto Restorers Paradise which i believe is the ebay name for Betta Auto Rubber. They've got a good rep and the couple of rubbers i've used so far have been spot on. I also bought a kit similar to yours off Kingswood Country and those guys are awesome on all fronts. As for what else you need, only time will tell as you progress. Nobody can have a definitive answer.

    Thanks for the input - the kit I bought above is the Kingswood Country one. Seems good, but time will tell when I start using the bits on the car.

    An update on the wagon. I've made some progress with the dismantling, and I'm hoping the car will be off to the blasters soon!


    Engine and transmission are out. 253 and the trimatic will be going back in, as I'm pretty sure they are original.



    Engine bay looking pretty bare. A few more things to remove.



    Rust in the roof. Bugger. I do like the roof rack, I just need to find a way to put them back which doesn't cause rust!

    I've bought a replacement tailgate which is in great condition, and came with all the electrics and the key mechanism. I've lined up some replacement back doors, and some other bits and pieces. Time to organise a gas bottle for the MIG, as I'll be getting into the rust repairs soon.

    For anyone in Geelong, Craig from Bellarine Auto Glass (0423 606 844) removed the windscreen from the wagon in one piece, so it can be reused. Cost - $30.

    The kit was an eBay one from "Kingswood Country". They have two sorts - the more expensive one has more screws and bits in it.

    Interior wiring was done over a few days, as I wanted to take the loom out without cutting anything. That meant I had to remove a lot of other things first, such as dash bits. It also took a while as I labelled every connector as I unplugged something, to make it easier to put it back together.

    All up, probably a couple of days.

    Cheers

    Hey pez, nice work I really like the wheels you have chosen. Where did you get them from? Can you give me as much info as possible about them?

    Like you, I'm doing up a HZ wagon. It is Valencia Orange and those chrome wheels would look bloody great. I'm not that fussed about going for 245's in the rear as I originally was going to go for a stock 14" wheels but seeing those wheels that you picked has got my mind tickin over. Info would be great. Thanks pez
