Thanks mate, the red on these is a great colour. I hope to have my VR half as nice as yours one day

Thanks mate. Let me know what angles/views you want of the seats and i'll snap some pics for you.

Thanks mate, the exterior was cared for reasonably well but being a daily driver it does need some touch ups here and there. Motor isn't in the best condition, it misfires which i'm hoping to sort out soon and then she should be A1 mechanically again and good to go until it rusts away!

I'm open for ideas for future mods to this car so throw out some ideas if you got any.

Thanks mate, i've been debating over getting the ss kit, if it did happen it'd be a bit further down the track.

And yeah that is FG rooftop, i live fairly close to the joint so its a nice easy photoshoot location lol.

Cheers.

Sadly the wheels have some gutter rash on them.

Haven't updated in a while, some things have happened since jan but not a lot.

The car now has a Level 3 cluster and trip computer. It did have a single 12" kenwood 600W sub but I have removed it for now, as the boot has been leaking water into it lately.

At the moment, I'm looking to have the car converted to a T5 manual, as the auto is showing is age and probably does not have much life left in it. Probably will be a better drive too with a 5 speed behind the V6.

Will fix up the boot leak, and sort out new headlining, and some better seats. I will also be changing the interior colour scheme a bit, which will depend on if I do a power window conversion or not.
