Some updates

- Twisty steering wheel getting too much. Tried to fix it by drilling holes into steering wheel and filling with silicone. Worked great for first few days but has given way again. Have a stiff aftermarket steering wheel cover, but a ‘new’ steering wheel is on the way.

- AC not blowing as cold as it could - took it to an AC specialist (Holden Dealer - one of the few workshops open this week!) and $240 later I have remarkably icy cold AC. There was a leaking valve.

- replaced $12 rubber Kmart floor mats with genuine Holden items

To add to future displays I found a genuine Sydney 2000 street banner, and got some piping from Bunnings to fashion a flagpole, along with a base to keep it upright.

Steering wheel swapped out for a good used one I found on eBay. $110 delivered. Took a couple of goes to clear the airbag light.

3.5 months on it’s moved town and living in its own shed.

The Sydney 2000 banner was a nuisance at shows, with anything more than a stiff breeze the pole became very bendy. Banner now hung up in garage.

Anyway did an oil change about a week ago. Engine mounts sagging a little, but still roadworthy. Taking it on a road trip next week through the Riverina and northern Victoria, keeping on with the ‘Used to be a Holden Dealer’ project.
