Hello, I got my hands on this 95 vs ute a few months ago and started to clean it up a bit. mainly cosmetics. as its a daily I doubt I will tweak it to much. but I am pretty sure I will eventually break that rule.

its a 3.8L with an auto. good enough for what I need.

How I bought it:


I ended up lowering it first, as it looks like a damn monster truck otherwise.





It wasnt looking to good with the stockies on it, so I went ahead and ordered a set of speedy cheatah wheels for it, 18" in size, which should fill the gaps nicely.



The latest addition is some tint, 20% on the rear 35% on the sides.



I need to get a new fender for it though, as someone was nice enough to clip my front end and drive off in a parking lot. Was also thinking of giving it a coat of plastidip in black jsut to help the body out a bit as it has a bit of paint peel on the roof.

I haven't seen those Cheetah's before.

A good clay bar, compound, wax & tyre shine should have it looking good.

Thanks for the comments guys,

I do paint correction when i am bored, this is my pontiac after a medium compound, to a fine, to a polish, to a hand applied wax... which takes forever, the ute will get the electric buffer treatment to see how it comes up as I feel I will have to start with an aggressive paste to begin as some scartches are very deep
