    Cheers Jaffles.

    Put the first lot of trims in today, just the trans tunnel and dash ones. Provided I can sell all my excess calais bits I'm hoping to do some audio gear at the same times as the rest of my trims so I dont have to put everything apart multiple times. But this might be a couple of months away.

    Not too much happening lately, ute is dirty as buggery but I haven't managed to find dry daylight spare time to wash it. But I chamged the headlight and parker globes to some Aerpro LEDs and some Phillips White Vision globes which look great and give much better vision too. Bought some audio bits too, but they still won't go in for a while. Also on the way home from work today had the left rear tyre blow which was fun, no damage to anything luckily, but I'm up for a new tyre as half of the inner sidewall seperated from the treat so I'm back to my old wheels for the meantime.

    Cheers man, keen as to get the audio gear in but I have the suede door trims to go in at the same time which I still need to acquire and wire up along with dynamatting so once I get all the gear I'll tackle it over a weekend. No idea why the tyre let go, theres no cracks or anything on the tyre and no camber wear either. Looking at it now though I'm just really glad it didn't punt me into a tree. Also realised changing the wheels that I need a lower jack, my current one clears the diff by less than 5mm and I needed to put it onto my mini ramps to get it under the sump to get to the k frame.

    So the car also threw a error code last week, but I its one of the 'Service Vehicle soon' ones and my scanner doesn't pick it up. Does anyone in south east Melb have a Tech 2 I could borrow to see what the fault is?

    Not much happening lately, but it did get a wash on sunday (very rare) so looks shiny for the moment. Also got a new camera lens to gave it quick test. My tech 2 also arrived yesterday, so now I just have to work out how to use it

    A little bit has been done to this lately. In Jan I finally got round to putting my audio gear in as well as the black roof lining/trims and the calais door trims, including wiring up the door lights. Also wrapped the speaker grilles in speaker felt and did the door fabrics in leather which gives the doors a nice finish I think. Don't really have any finished pics but here are some of the process.

    Decided the ute needed a wax after nears 2 years since I last did it. Yes having it up on the hoist is so much nicer than bending down to do it haha. Came out not too bad for a daily.

    And when did you change wheels again?
