Nice pickup mate. Very nice first car. :)
My opinion... leave it looking like a VT (as it is one). Get some series 2 tail lights (clear instead of amber blinkers) and some clear side indicators, and spend whatever other money you get on a nice set of rims (the HSV ones look nice) and get it lowered and some dark tinted windows. Then you'll have a nice headturner without looking to outragious.

Picked up the car yesterday. My dads resprayed the door handle, front bumper and spoiler as the paint was flaking. Bought some new Holden floor mats for it and some cheap seat covers so my seats dont get dirty when i finish work. Got my $150 of cleaning products and scrubbed the inside so its all shiny and the dash shines black now. Car is ready to hit the road! Will be uploading some pics of the paintwork and the car out and about on the weekend

Yeah the clutch burnt out about a week ago and i've only had the car about 3 weeks. But as far as i know its the original clutch so 159,000kms out of the original clutch is quite good i would of thought. When we bought the car my Dad said it would need replacing. Apparently he could of got another 6 months out of it, but being a young driver with his first Commodore, i kinda got excitied and killed it. It has the duel mass flywheel so im looking at $1100 just for the clutch, then labour on top of that. Thats a quote from a mechanic my dad knows very well even! But ive already saved $200 and im hoping Centrelink doesnt take all my taxback, if they dont im looking at another $600 towards the clutch

Also i've just changed what i plan to do in the future on my first post. Obviously its going to be a much longer wait now but theres some more interesting ideas on there. They may even give you an idea for your VT. Yours has given me a few ideas
