HJ Hand brake problem

Hi all, been a while.
Hope you are all well!

Has any one had similar trouble with their HQ - WB handbrake levers?
The inner bit wants to keep spreading apart letting the cable pull through. As you can see I have crimped it a bit without much luck. Disassembly looks difficult too, as it is a drill apart job by the look of things.

Any advice appreciated.

Cheers

LMH

HQ tailgate badges

Hi all.
Seeking some advice or ideas. I've some tailgate badges for my HQ Kingswood ute I'm restoring. They are in great condition and want to avoid ciutting the pins off if possible (and use double-sided tape). Is there a simple way to install these badges?

Any reply is appreciated.

Thanks, Dave.

HZ Air Conditioning

Hi All,
Looking for any advice in regard to installing AC in my 6 cylinder sedan? I live on Central Coast NSW, just north of Sydney.
First quote was for $6000!
Another quote by a guy at Kurri Kurri (Mark Ostermann), recommended to me by Greg at Ozwreckers (Toronto), $4500.00. This is to integrate into existing vents. Included A6 Delco compressor, and I think factory parts.
Anyone have any two bobs worth to throw in? Use original parts, or get new?
Under dash vs integrated? I want to keep everything as original as I can.
Many thanks,
Todd
