Commodore wheel center caps on HQ studs?

Everyone knows that commo wheels don't go on HQ studs, but I have a set of Jaguar 16"x7" steel wheels that look like interceptors but have HQ pattern (for real! they are 120.65PCD). Not exactly to my tastes visually (on HZ Van) but practical, the cheapest way for me to go 16" and most importantly tough. But I thought there could be a cheap way to tart them up since they have no trims or centre caps.

RUNNING GEAR

Ok, i'm after opinions here.

Have a HQ ute, started off 179, 3 speed with bango diff.

Options: Rebuild original running gear
Purchase and rebuild V8, manual/auto box with 10 bolt/9inch
Purchase V8 and put procomp heads and 355 kit with manual/auto and suitable diff.
Purchase create motor from the states
Purchase VN-VR commo and use running gear off that.

Now i know this is a lot to digest and beleive me i'm rolling around in my sleep over what to do.

I don't have the biggest of budgets but i think the V8 option is my preferred option.

Do i go manual or auto, what ever i use what is my best option?

Do i go 10 bolt or 9inch, drum or disk?

WANTED. HQ-HZ PREM/KINGSWOOD

Hi all.
I have finally sold my HG panel van and am now looking for a new old car.
The wish list is:

HQ-HZ prem or kingswood
Pref station wagon but not too fussed.
253 on Gas/dual fuel would be superb. (not interested in a 202)
No rusty bombs.
Power steering and Air con would be a bonus but i can put them in.

I am in Victoria so any viccos know how tight the roadworthy laws are. Im not up for a rebuild, or a show car.
Just after a daily driver.
My budget is around $5k.

Mig welder

Hi Fellas,

Interested in buying a mig welder for panel repairs and just after any advice or recommendations.
I would like to buy a mig that can be used gas or gasless and must be single phase.
Iam on budget of about $500 and not sure if I can get anything worth while for that price.
Fairly new to welding so any comments and suggestions will be much appreciated.
Also would like to know if a oxy acetylene will also be needed or can most welding be done with mig when i start all the panel repairs on the HT.
