EH sedan rebuild

by Deucefanny » Tue Jul 31, 2018 3:36 pm

Thought I'd try and breath some life back into this forum and post some pictures and info about my EH standard sedan.

I'll start with a super long story to bore the hell out of everyone.

I got the EH from a bloke just out of Castlemaine , Victoria a few days before my 16th birthday (37 now). It was what the bloke called their "rough" EH. They had another 3 that were mint and Prems and Specials with all the good bits on them.
The car had about 85000 miles on the clock and had its fair share of dints down both sides as his kids used the car to learn to drive. he didn't want his kids driving the good ones.
So I restored the car with my stepdad and then drive the car as a weekender for 15 years then sort of sat it in the shed as I was building and driving a HR wagon I had built as an everydayer.
About 2 years ago I decided to do a full rotisserie build of the car as the main seal was leaking and the paint looked a little sad.
To that's the story told as short and as boring as I could tell it.

So strap ya self in and see where this ride takes ya!

Ok so how the bloody hell do I up load photos? I've got about 4 billion I need to bore the piss out of you all with super long explanations to them all.
I did the upload thing like with most forums but nothing happened.

I’ve never posted photos on this site, but on others I use the Tapatalk app on my phone. Of course, you need to have your photos on a mobile device (phone or tablet). It’s quick and easy to use once you get used to it.
If you’ve got your photos on a computer then, sorry, can’t help, but others should be able to chime in.

Good luck,

John

Hi, I just had a go on my MAC computer to add a photo.

On the "Post a Reply" page,
Click on "Upload Attachment" towards the bottom of the page,
Click on "Choose Files",
Go to wherever your photos are stored and select the ones you want,
Click on "Choose" in the bottom right hand corner and you'll return to the posting page
Click on "Add the File(s)",
Select in your comments section where you want the photo to be,
Click on "Place Inline" in the "Posted Attachments" box
If your photos are too large, you'll have to reduce them first. I find it easier to drag the photos to the desktop, click on the photo and reduce from there, using the "Tools" tab on the MAC. Then you can just drag them to the "Choose Files" box.
Click on "Preview" to see if it worked.

This worked for me,

... and no, this isn't my car unfortunately. It's owned by a mate of my son's.

Hope you get it sorted.

Cheers,

John

Sorry some of the pictures went out of order.
As you can see the floor in the rear was looking like a patch work quilt so that defiantly had to go. A mate and I looked at it and after a few beer discussion about it we thought it would be easier to make a whole new floor for the rear, and the fact he had just got a new bead roller machine and wanted to try it out. So I cut the floor out with his plasma cutter and we got started on it.

The motor went with my Dad as he was working at a engine rebuild joint and was just about to retire for good this time so he did all the engine work for me. The blokes in the shop couldn't work out why I was rebuilding a mint engine as you could still see the original hone marks in the bores and there was no lip at the top. But while I was at it and the price was better then right why not.

So I now have a fully rebuilt 149, painted and ready to go that I'm not going to use as I'm now going to run a 202. That 149 is just not gonna cut the mustard in my book anymore.
