Now that is one sexy VN, you have done a very good job with it. Your's is the first VN i have seen with a later model kit on it that doesnt look sh1t house.
Colour coding = awesome! That looks great mate.
Also, how does it go with the cam? How did it effect fuel consumption/power? If you're willing to say, how much was it? Every time I come onto JC I want more power
I love how you have fiberglassed the gauges on the inside looks awesome
sweet car man
gonna look tough as with the new rims..
the bodykits starting to grow on me.. dunno about the chunky rear though
and the subs look sweet as!!
looks good in the pics m8
i didnt know you had done so much to this car
I'll have a good look at it on the next SA cruze
i love it mate the kit suits it well i think
"A life lived in fear is a life half lived"
she looks beatiful man, keep up the good work

Tomorrow doesn't look good either.
God must love stupid people, He made so many.
Thanks for the awesome feedback guys and girls
The centre console was a year 12 design project.. Coulda chosen some better guages for it though (One is a temperature guage which I wanna swap for something thats actually useful hehe).
As for the cam they're around a grand... But I would just go with the stage 3 Crow Cam for anyone out there looking at one...Its like $100 more or so and its definitely worth the money. I was not overly pleased with my cam (value for money wise!)
I'll post some new pics this week with the VP rear garnish and the door moulds removed with the doors resprayed
i seen the car last night at your work dude.
Looked neat. I ****ing liked it.
I looked into your work but didnt see you so kept driving.
I was debating whether to replace my kit with the vt or the vy clubsport. I have now choosen the vy clubsport kit.
Maybe a custom vt rear bar though. To make way with the vents at the back.
Placed an order for a custom dashmat today as well. Black with electric blue trim and blue writin that says "Holden Vn2nV" above the glovebox. Will take 14 to 15 working days before I get it though
looks good man cant wait to see it soon btw u still gona swap over the grey mesh to blue??
Either blue or black... gonna wait til I get a custom bonnet though Cheers manOriginally Posted by SlyVR
