The WB has a separate wire for each white reverse light.

This wire needs to be connected to the H Series rear blinker wires to allow the reverse lights to work. I do this using 2 x 3 amp diodes on each side ....

You don't have to make any changes to the front blinker wires.

Holdenpaedia, they're the brakes Mate.

You may have noticed that the WB tail lights stick out further than HQ-HZ ones which is why you want to change , by doing this Holden were able to delete the rear side flashers present on earlier models as the indicator became visible from the side. I believe that you will have to add side flashers to remain "legal" if you modify yours and I'm unsure of the implication of deleting white reverse lights and going back to amber , have to check ADR on that one. Having said all that your chances of being picked up are slim to none so why worry.
