    In 2017 A friend of mine had an accident in a 2000 VX berlina wagon. Which i then bought for $300 and Stripped of its interior and swapped its rims into my car. The headlights were trash so i bought some knock off SS headlights.

    After

    At the end of 2017 a Friend sent me an add for free VT/VX parts on facebook. So i investigated and ended up with full VT SS interior, Monaro bar and Monaro headlights, rear doors and more. however do not have access to the pictures of that stuff at this time. have sent the bar to be painted and finally put it on about about a week ago. here are the results. I also put back my original dash back in and mixed the VT SS interior with VX s2 door cards. once i have %100 finished will post pictures of it. As i am missing a few pieces.

    I Recently Acquired A boot and spoiler and a rear boot garnish for a VX Berlina.
    I decided to go for the VX berlina Garnish Because it was so much cheaper then getting Monaro Tail lights. The Garnish has a Crack and i had to paint it to match my car. Which i didn't do the best job. Will redo it when the weather gets better. May end up going for the Monaro Tails Lights later on.

    Future Plans for this Car
    Debadge Bonnet.
    Manual Conversion.
    VT SS/S pack rear bar.
    SS rims maybe VY SS, VX SS or maybe some VE SS rims not to sure what ever i can Get cheap.
    Remove black side moldings.
    Window Tints.
    Extractors Maybe a cam not %100 on the cam. It's only an Ecotech
    Paint the Mirrors White.
    And that's about it. Don't plan of lowering it or anything like that.

    Looks good and good luck with the rest of your plans :)

    Just FYI tho the side moulds are glued on (I’d suggest painting them white rather than removing) as a panel beater I don’t recommend you remove them unless you can repaint where they’ve been (usually on odd occasions they can come off good, but it takes a bit of work and can easily go wrong)

    And also the bonnet badge has holes behind it if you remove it :)

    Hope that’s all helpful and goodluck

    Its nice man, i really like the monaro bumper, gives it a really nice look. Maybe try look for a cheap polisher for your car. I use this thing called turtle wax dry spray wax you can buy it from supercheap auto. Its not as intense as a full cut and polish but after you wash your car right, all you do is leave the car wet after you have washed it then you spray the bottle over each panel on the car and rub it in with a microfibre towel and finish drying off the car. it gives the car a really great little shine and it doesnt require much effort at all and a good budget way to make your car look good without going to full cut and polish way. Its only 17 dollars from supercheap auto. But yeah man it's looking nice

    I like the Monaro ( VT shape ) lights better than the VX. VT lines are classic.

    Nice.
    I remember being young and wanting to do everything. Just keep it all in perspective ok, it's a car that is never going to be valuable in $ terms.

    Now. please tell, are the fog lights active or just for show, ie are they wired and working, did you have to do mods to electrics?

      At the Moment the fog lights are for show however i will be wiring them up in the future. I have no clue if i have to mod the electrics or not but i'm gonna try and get a factory loom and switch just to try and keep it factory. As far money wise i'm going as cheap as possible the only reason i have a Monaro front end is it was very cheap. But i plan of keeping the car for a long time. As it is a good car.
