I got the conversion kit from a guy named Scott Meharg. He has a facebook page. He has a EH sedan that he calls myehholden. If you face stalk him you should be able to find him or his car. If you have no luck there, he was on a wedsite called oldholden.com.

Got a bit of time over the weekend to do a few things. First up was test fit the alternator and A/C compressor with the mounts I made. Needed to see what bolts to buy for fitment.

That's all I had time for this week end, more next week I hope. All this is in preparation for the wiring. Cheers and thanks for looking.

All the grey stuff is seam sealer and the bolt heads in the front floor pans are for the CRS chassis kit (the grey circles).
Then I added some of this.

Got it from the local trimming suppliers near my work. It is a little bit cheaper than Dyna mat but they tell me they sell heaps to trimmers and audio guys in the area. One box got the firewall, front floor pan, rear floor pan and under the rear seat area covered.

That took me quite a few hours. If anyone is thinking of doing this, buy yourself one of the rollers to help lay it down. I think it would have been a nightmare without it. Looking to put something on the roof but I think this stuff is too heavy and may fall off after time. If anyone has any suggestions please chime in. After that I got going on the wiring. No pics of that, a couple of hours work and nothing to show for it. Well that was it for my weekends play. Thanks for looking.
