I already forgot the name of the paint but its what ever supercheap auto use to mix up their colours.
I ended up priming it a short time after i applied the base as i did more research and figured to do it earlier.

Its got a fair amount of orange peel but on monday (or possibly tomorrow night) ill wet sand it with 2000grit then 3000grit.
Then polish the hell out of it. Hopefully it comes up good enough to be unnoticeable.

As it is now though its already a lot better than it was.

this photo is right after a coat so it looks worse than it actually is

No updates, been waiting for the clear to harden over the week to wetsand it but to be honest it isnt even all that bad.
Been using it a lot like a station wagon lately, the back seats fold up nicely and give you plenty of room.
Put 5 rims and 5 tyres in there comfortably and been taking my new pupper (bull mastiff) in it everywhere.
Doesnt look like much in the photo but its actually huge.



Im suprised how much better the toyota leather is to the holden leather, theres barely a mark on the driver seat and its not 200,000km along
Ive also ordered some new Fog light globes for it, they're big yellow leds. The tint on the housing keeps bubbling so ive decided this is a better option

I've got the same LED globes in my foglight, however mine are white.
The light "throw" is awful, however they look good when on - and we all know theres really no need for fog lights in metro Melbourne.

Asia is better at making fake EVERYTHING :p
Then why is it not as good at Holden fake leather than Toyota stuff??? Although TBH, compared to my 200 vs every Holden leather seat I've had, I'd take the Holden stuff every time.
