That is cool, I want
haha.. so do I actually!
That last one does look pretty sweet. What about the kpm decal available. I reckon that is brilliant and if he flesh have or want any kpm goodies then use it at least for a template?
My wife is the one who wants a decal. She has an unhealthy aversion to station wagons, however being a muso a station wagon with a decent towing capacity is a must for me. The sportwagon was the only comprimise we could both agree on. It is also the first Holden we have ever considered in 32 years of driving. The price dictated the colour. It was the only one at that price. Wifey isn't a big fan of the colour, she strongly believes, as I do that it understates the breast under the bonnet. Hense we are considering a decal. It also helps that the guitarist in a former band owns a vinyl decal printing business. Why waste a perfect opportunity. What do people think about the Pacer decal on a sportwagon. Yes. No. Always. Never.
I know some of you think I am trying too hard, but we recently lost absolutely everything in the Brissie floods and I mean everything. Basses, amps, awards, gold records, everything. This car represents a whole new beginning for us and so we are trying hard to get it right at the beginning. Sorry for trying so hard.
god the wagon needs some bigger rims if dumped like that
have a set of bigger / wider rims that came off our last twin turbo 300ZX, maybe they'll fit
decals on a SSV wagon..???? WTF? :boxing:
definitely substance abuse required for that post :rofl2:
I reckon you have to be kidding (and I say that as owner of a de-badged SSV wagon!)
very funny post from someone who said his wife was once on the front of FHM :rofl2:
Glad you got the pun Smitty, I though it was funny too.
Contrary to some valid opinions we are still considering a subtle decal for the side of the sportwagon.
Just got a quote of $554 to do paint protection, leather/carpet protection and full tint. Dealer quoted $1795 for same with rust protection - ouch!
KPM cat backs (2.5 inch) have been ordered and are on their way - $2460 fitted.
Car Bra, and bumper bar protector ordered too. I plan to lug some basses and amps in her so I needed a roll out rubber mat to protect the rear bumper. 40kg amps and 30kg speaker cabs can be awkward in the rain after playing a three set gig.
Tomorrow I go in search of a tow bar. Dealer has included the wiring harness so its a DIY job to fit it.
Thanks for everyones comments so far.
y didnt u get holdens tow bar
What band were you in?
only thing op wanted from the thread
i actually want to know the band too.
also... that was the funniest Thread start i've ever seen lol.
I am definitely not a fan of Kharma, worst colour in the range. Sorry!
I understand your position though as i have been in it also.
In regards to Decals. Very Tough. What about a smokey dark grey. Airbrushing would look much nicer.
The bloke at the bodykit shop who fitted the Grange bootlip to my Stato has a Karma wagon and he was going to do a 2 tone paint job with Sandstorm over the top. I'd love to see the end result.
Troy you own one sweet ride man.
Two tone,,,,is that the same as wood panelling on a 40 ford? Saw a red wagon with a white vinyl roof. Aint going there either
Total agree with Macca on Karma being the ugliest colour in the range. But airbrushing aint out of the question as I custom paint my own basses (see attachment for my latest)
have a mate who owns a pedders store. he'll hitch me up with a tow bar for a nada fitting fee. shame he cant fit the cat backs for the same sheckle
If air brushing is an option then definitely do it man. Looks so much more natural.
have to agree but theres a big difference between me air brushing a $6K bass and a $50K wagon. might continue to find the right image then get it priced up by a pro spray jockey.
just saw the coloured brake pad covers on evil bay. any good or should I spend 15 big ones on a can of red caliper paint and do it myself
I want to change mine to red too
DO NOT GET THE COVERS. They are completely retarded
Just spray the calipers mate.
