    Unfortunate Names

    Knew an Asian bloke at school who's name was Harry Wang. Also had a teacher who's name was Saxon Bowles. He used to give it to the students even more than they gave it to him. He was a tough nut (couldn't help myself)

    Battery vent tube in ute

    Thanks for the help blokes. Some numpty had ditched the tube when they put in the (wrong) previous battery. Good combo. Used some clear tube I found lying around in the toolbox to replace it. Piece of mind that's its right now.

    Battery vent tube in ute

    Okay so it will be on the negative side then? I had a good look today but it was a bit hard with the stuff all space trying to squeeze behind the seats. Ill have another look tomorrow. No it didn't that's why I'm a little confused. It wasn't an original battery though. I'm wondering if the...

    Battery vent tube in ute

    I think you misunderstood me. I was having electrical issues with my OLD battery so I put a NEW battery in but I can't see the vent tube to connect to the NEW battery.

    Battery vent tube in ute

    Hey blokes, Not sure if this has been asked before. Already did a search with no success. Put a new varta e44 battery into the ute today as I've been having funny electrical issues that I can only put down to the battery. When I went to install it I couldn't see the vent tube for the battery...

    Tyre pressure monitor

    I'm pretty sure you can but the sender lives inside the rim so the tires and that have to come off on all 4. No idea on cost though.

    Dream Car at Last 2008 VE SS-V Ute

    It's all straightened out now but not 100% happy with the paint repair. Already taken it back once cos they left a huge run in the paint. The other day I was washing it and you can feel a ridge where they've blended the paint back in to the panel so not happy about that. Ill be taking it back...

    VE window switch question

    http://forums.justcommodores.com.au/showthread.php?t=224165 Have a look at this thread. Tasmaniak says he will send a wiring diagram an says it's not too hard. Might be worth a try. I've been meaning to do this mod but haven't got around to it yet so not sure of difficulty.

    Dream Car at Last 2008 VE SS-V Ute

    I had thought that initially but it's hard to see in the picture but the wheel and tire have gouges out of them. But yea hindsight tells me I should have done a quick price up. I also didn't know the other guys wasn't gonna care. I had left a note and he took ages to ring me.

    Dream Car at Last 2008 VE SS-V Ute

    Well last week I came to the realisation that if I don't think I'll fit into a parking spot I should just keep driving... It pains me to say I hit an unkept Toyota celica in a car park trying to fit into a spot. Didn't help that my mate was being a ######## and standing in the parking space I...

    Hey mate just a bit of advice. I'm a designer for a living, furniture but do a lot of my own graphic work. A lot of what tinsnips says is on the money. Those examples you knocked up (I know they were probably done quick) were good when really simplified but you need to think about the...

    Dream Car at Last 2008 VE SS-V Ute

    Clay bar and waxed some of my ute yesterday. Only did it cos I got bored. Not much point doing the whole car as ill be getting a full detail in the next month. Also thanks to dallascowboy's neat mod with a pool noodle I was able to relieve the sag that my bonnet has. Looks much better now...

    Reward for finishing Uni...VE SS

    That's an awesome mod. When I bought my ute I thought that the bumper was screwed or something. That annoys me that it doesn't sit right especially to the bonnet. I looks like an easy fix. How hard is it to take the bumper off?

    Agree they look like series 2 ssv's but they won't clear brembos.

    Multiple Questions

    I can answer 3 and 5. 3. The strip is held on by clips so just get under there with a panel remover (or similar piece of plastic so as to not damage the strip) and pop em off. 5. It should be in the menu on the screen. I swear I've seen it in there. Just hit the menu button.

    VEO55 - SS-V Ute

    Yea that's bloody cheap compared to sourcing a GPS enabled unit. I'm in the planning stages of doing the reversing camera and would have liked to do GPS but ruled it out because of cost. But this seems achievable. Are you able to point me in the direction of your sources for research? Might be...

    Windows down or AC on?

    Yea, if i decide to try drive with the windows down im forever trying to find a harmonic balance that lets enough wind in from both windows to stop the damn buffeting. Its infinitely distracting whilst trying to drive. Pressing the ON button for the ac seems so much easier... and safer.

    Windows down or AC on?

    I used to be a windows down man in every other car I've owned but the ve has some intense buffeting wind noise at all speeds which gives me a serious headache. So I am now an AC man.
