HQ statesman steering/suspension issue

Seasons greetings Old Holdeners.

Hopefully someone here can provide some ideas/solutions/insight to steering issues.
1973 DeVille 308 auto, done 67,500km (whether that makes any difference or not. 15,000km in last 2.5 years in which ive owned it)

I took a hold of my vehicle last week, after it had front upper/lower arm bushes and sway bar bushes replaced (im told the engineering outfit that replaced the arm bushes had a nightmare of a job removing the old bushes. 1/2 day or more and nearly gave up).

Putting the H back in the Q.

Well Putting the H back in the Q seems to be a distant hope that draws on, it's been 13 months of waiting. I just wanna drive her. Shes been at the garage for the last month, other cars come and gone, Days have turned to months waiting for the completion of those jobs, me trilogy dates back (just search the title) I needed the drive-shaft modified and everything tuned up, having the 3.55 Banjo reconditioned including brakes and electrically sorted, run individual pipes out each side.

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.

Putting the H back in the Q.

Search me trials and tribulations getting me ride on the road, I posted 19th January 2017, and a progress report 4th October, and here another chapter continues.

While in the shed the painter called , if Ya wait for the next fine day. Shes hard enough to take home, That day arrived - I dropped the boys a box a Waikato. Obviously the $ too. We loaded her up and took her home, the list is a good way to keep ya busy, cause when that bolt pisses ya off just take a walk or do another job on the list, as it's not done until it is crossed off, but myes 5 pages at this point.
