Good old stocker VN! Good to see someone new posting their ride. I wish my door trims would fall off like yours!!
yeah thanks mate haha they didnt exactly "fall off" the crap that stuck to it took ages to get off....... was hating it but i eventually got it off, pitty the other side paint came off before i learnt how to get it off without taking paint off...
and yeah im not exactly new, just couldnt find good quality pics for a myride thread until tonite
Interesting paint code. My paint code is 1J052 which is Alpine White... Yours is a much creamier colour though, wonder what its called?
no idea at all, i remember airstrike saying it in one of the threads about color... but cant find it anywhere to find out the name....
o well within the next year or two it should be full white (sort of like yours before yours before the body kit)
i havnt posted anything in here for ages so here we go..
Future Mods Done/to be done soon.
-Calais Seats DONE!
-Level 3 Cluster DONE!
-fix rust above my windscreen and rear window DONE!
-get door pods and an amp DOORPODS DONE!

-Exhaust Tomorrow i hope, if not then the next couple weeks.

bad pics of the rust before i fixed it
interior before i painted it.
Calais seats + pods + full black interior...
oooh and my engine ended up going to a place in the sky so now i have a another engine in with 260k (i know thats not low km's but i miss driving my car) cant wait to drive her again
hey patrick hats happening knackers nice car dude havent seen u out for a while so yeh keep up the car and keep us posted on about it.
PRESTON AUTOMATICS & DIFFERENTIALS
interior is heaps better, just have to do the carpet and plastics where the doors are.
How did u fix the rust on it? did u do it yourself.
Exhaust is now on straight pipe on the end so sounds pretty nice, not bad for $77 and its almost new
Hey mate interior looks tops, what did you use to paint it black?
Tint the tail-lights and try and get matching paint for the grill maybe same colour mirrors to, couple of thoughts.
Grille: well that 1 actually got snapped when i changed my engine SO! im going to finally paint the letterbox grille i got a while ago.. only problem is i think my bumper is a little pushed in on 1 side, and my bonnet needs to come down a little bit....
and i have some paint the same color as my car left over from when i fixed the rust so im going to paint it body color....
mirrors: didnt think about that :P ill see how i go
then all i need is "dumpage" and tinted windows
i got a letterbox grill and it didnt fit propper cause 1 side of my bumper is pushed in abit to lol.did you fix the roof with some bog or sumfin? then just painted it.
nah i completely took out the windscreen and rear window, sanded it like crazy.. fibreglassed it and bogged it.... absolutely soaked it in fish oil and then painted it and put the windows back in
if that rust ever comes back im going to skits it bahaha :P
ive only got a little bit of rust around the back window what would i do to stop that from getting worst just sand it bog it and paint it?
i cant tell you i know 100% mate because my dad was the one that helped me with it and told me what to do..... maybe its worth asking 88greenvn.
i remember he done it but his involved taking the window out aswell..
a little tip, do it as quick as possible... i thought mine wouldnt get much worse and lets just say during winter i could have a swim in my car *rolls eyes*
ok i havnt updated this in a long time so here is a current pic, she isnt clean because the weather in melbourne is ****...... so yeah
just a pic from my phone
