Not sure if this is the best place to ask this but do Rare spares stock the smaller door pins (the ones that are only a few cm's, not the large ones) for a LC/LJ torana.

One of mine have become stuck and i want to know if i can save my time and cut the old one off and buy a new one, or if i have to take my time to hammer the bastard out.

Awesome, waiting on you to get yours and tell us how it goes.
This probably helps rares too as most of the guys who sell your kits on ebay will still have the old ones, so most will be buying directly from rares.

Les, thanks for your effort with the new rubber, its excellent and its just a few adjustments i need to make as i had the hatch setup before with the old rubber, just fitting the rubber the hatch sat much better and i will let it sit for a while then adjust the hatch when i get more time, thanks again

For everyone else wanting to get a new seal , nows the time, Job well done Les for making this happen .

sorry to do a negative post but the Klippan seatbelt product i was not happy with; purchased from rares. if from rare spares i kind of expected a repro GMH product. yes i did want a restoration type product, had to replace seatbelt for rego inspection. it is for safety but Klippan is just some aftermarket brand & has nothing to do with toranas or holdens. also difficulty with fitting seatbelt. ie. drilling holes in seatbelt brackets. i dont want it for my torana and please dont advertise it as suits LH-LX TORANA.

I understand what you say but you are not the only person wanting seat belts, some people want them for safety, you could have sent them back at any time if you were not happy (before you drilled them). We at no stage have ever said they are for restoration, there are people that sell repro seat belts but as far as there legality goes I am very skeptical

Hi Les.

I am looking for the breather elbow mounted at the rear of the passengers side rocker cover that vents to the air cleaner. You used to stock them but apparently don't anymore. Any chance there is a spare one at one of the stores? I really need one.

cheers,Gerry.

We ran out of stock on 09/01/2008 I have asked Melissa to see if she can find any around the country. Give her an email at the end of next week she should have heard by then if there are any around.
mbernabo @rsp.net.au the part number is 9932185
