So I figured it was about time I finally put my new ride up on here, unfortunately the last one got hit by a motorbike while I was at work and it ended up being a write-off. After this happened I was without a car and it was time to search for a new one. I didn't want to try my luck a second time with a Series 1 as the last had the dreaded check engine light that was related to the timing chain. So I decided a Series 2 would be the better option, plus I like the look of the front bumper better and the IQ system is another plus But why stop there, I decided it would be better to just go with an SV6 this time instead of making it something it is not. So this is how my new pride and joy stayed for the first week or so before the mods started to begin. My first change was to swap the original red rear lights over to the SSV ones I added onto my old VE not long before it was written off, luckily I ended up driving it home (even though I definitely shouldn't have) but this allowed me to grab any pieces I wanted off it before it was too late. The silver trim around the shifter wasn't doing great with the silver bubbling up and peeling off in places so I decided to give it a sand back and spray it white to match the exterior of the car. This isn't permanent and still isn't great but it is better than how it was and I actually quite like it. After this my next change involved the wheels and some plati-dip. I had always wanted some black wheels even with my previous Commodore but money was another issue. Painting the ones I had was always an option but I'm not brave enough to permanently paint my wheels, atleast not yet. This meant that plasti-dip was a great option, it gave me the look I wanted but without the risk as I could peel it off if I didn't like it. $50 later and 3 and a half cans down I had 4 black wheels. I was impressed with how the plasti-dip was holding up after this first week and with half a can left I decided I wanted to try out giving my exhaust tips a spray. I was skeptical at first as to how well it would stay on with the temperatures it would have t deal with but so far they are holding up great and I have no complaints yet. Next on the list is to get the tint done again as the tint that's on it now is shocking and has a large spot on the drivers window where it has come off. After this will be front sports armour and then who knows from there.
