What's Missing Here?

I have had a look on Holdenpedia, and noticed with the clock info that there is a plastic fitting on the side of the clocks that I assume the power feed and maybe ground connect to in order to feed current to the clock. This clock, out of a WB Caprice dash, doesn't seem to have one. It never worked in the car when I pulled it out. Can anyone enlighten me, and suggest where I may get it repaired? I am located in Melbourne. Cheers.

WB van, hq parts?

Hi all,

I've decided to resto my WB panelvan. I'm a bit of an amateur so was hoping a couple of you guys withy some experience and knowledge would be able to help me out.

1st - HQ front end. I love the look of the hq. DO the hq guards, nosecone, clip etc go on a wb? Think I heard somewhere they don't? Is it at all possible?

2nd - has anyone cut the rear quarters and light section out of hq-Hz ute and welded them into a wb? I much prefer the tail lights from the hq-Hz.

I have a donor hq shell which is pretty stuffed but good for the rear end.

WB Statesman Steering Wheel

I was going to have a go at tidying up the tired steering wheel of my WB Statesman. Its the single spoke type - similar to early SLE Commodore steering wheels (an example pic attached). The rim of the wheel has faded in places so I was going to repaint it. Unlike the older hard plastic wheels this wheel is a bit soft and spongy. Has anyone restored one of these wheels - any tips or recommendations - what to use- what not to use?
Thanks
