    Hey Marty!

    What did you use for the gasket/collar around the fuel filler neck?

    Mine is stuffed & I was going to use a solid rubber round about 20mm diameter from Clark Rubber.

    Hi Geodon The fuel filler collar on mine is a General Motors part that came with the ute ,my guess is that its from a Kingswood station wagon . The 404 sedans have a different system.
    I stripped my dash to paint it the wiring is a mess and missing a lot of numbers so thats the next challenge .

    Yeah well, good luck with the wiring! My experience:

    * Get a multi-meter & learn to use the Continuity Function.

    * You'll need new spade terminals; use Narva ones- the generics are worse than useless- they just fall off again with only minimal provocation.

    * Make sure you earth the wiper switch- if you don't you wont be able to turn the buggers off!

    *Get ALL the idiot lights working before you install the dash.

    * Install the U-bolt for the steering column BEFORE you install the 10mm mounting bolts for the dash & make sure the M7 studs of the U-bolt are well & truly screwed into the threaded bar. A bit of Loctite wont go astray here.

    * Hook up the speedo cable BEFORE you install the dash. It will save heaps of angst trying to do it with the dash in-situ. Don't hook up at the GB end 1st.

    One more thing: Stick the speedo cable in the speedo & try to spin the cable. You don't want to find out the speedo is seized after you have every thing installed.

    Like I did!!

    I have been working on all the interior parts the ute never had a fan in the heater box with the switch blanked off I found a sedan fan that works well and is quiet [bonus].

    Next the dashboard ashtray and instrument surround where painted with wrinkle coat

    then I set up the heater core to pressure test the first core leaked so I set up an older looking core which so far is holding water

    The instrument cluster needed checking I replaced and checked all the light bulbs and holders then checked the speedo [thanks Geodon]
