kris, what about your JC sticker? where is that going?
deano, how long till the wheels arrive?
the arse needs to be dropped to even it out looks funny
I still don't understand why people like cars that look like boats!
Even doesn't look like a boat. Jacked at the front dumped at the rear does
the car sits level...it is to be exact 5mm lower at the rear than the front since the stereo gear went in
350mm front from centre of rim to guard
345mm rear from centre of rim to guard
dont like the whole dump the ass and have the front in the air...
should be an animal then mate...look forward to results
rims not sure yet...there was some issue with the manufacturer in the US and also i havent really been ready for the rims with paying the other mods....so dont know yet...
will call him this week to find out
Thanks mate! Looking forward to the money that's going to see the results first lol
**boot interior light was replaced with a blue LED stick and the underneath of the parcel shelf has had board and carpet put on it to match everything else
**SS logo on perspex for the capacitor is done and in
**VIM mod done
**AUX IN kit done
**glovebox has been customised with the factory sat nav in it to also allow for the headunit i put in there to play DVDs through the front screen for now.
headrest screens to come later on the year to complete it all
My opinion, drop the rear more. The overall lines of the car make it appear to be higher at the rear. Who cares what the rim to guard measurements are if the sill at the bottom of the doors doesn't sit level... that's my indication for a car sitting level.
Do love the no spoiler look though.
So you're one of the morons who thinks driving a boat (higher in the front than the rear) is cool? When was the last time you saw any kind of race car with a higher front end than rear end? The car IS level when you check ground clearance of the sill pan just in front of the rear wheels and just behind the front wheels.
"Boats" look and drive like pooh!
You can't tell me that in these photo's that the car looks level. The body kit raises much higher at the rear wheel than at the front.
Don't get me wrong, the car looks great but if it were mine (which I know it ain't), I would have it looking level.
Who gives a toss - when was the last time we all drove race cars on the road?
i want to see it with the new wheels damnit. how long do i have to wait? lol
Looks level to me... the sill panels aren't lower or higher at the front or rear. It's styled agressively which gives it a raked look but that's all...
My point about race cars was if setting up a car to be lower in the rear was going to be better for performance, race cars would all look like boats.
:rofl: they are closer than ever troy :whistling
the Ziniks i wanted wont fit over the monster brakes...so i went and saw my mate and he was jumping out of his skin....some rims he reckons are perfect for the car....
they are one of a kind...well the Managing Director of the Rim company has them custom made up for his VE HSV so i know they will clear brakes as my brakes are made to suit the SSV rims or HSV rims... and my mate can get another custom set up made for me.
similar to ziniks...5 spoke black with chrome lip...some dish and the "rivets" on the edge of the rim are chrome...
those pics u put were a long time ago and the measurements arent for what the pics are.
the rear sits lower and even tucks a little tyre up now while the front is still the same...
didnt do it for any look but the stereo boot install made it drop lower due to weight
The pics SV6 posted it does show the car as pretty level if you check the underneath near the front of the side skirts. Its the kit that makes it look so outta wack. But i love that car and keep it up mate looks awesome!!
Whilst SlowPoke would say tucking a little rear tyre = "boat"
I would say tucking a little rear tyre = "shlt hot !!!"
dodgy pic but its the best i got of the custom rims and its on a VE GTS black so will look similar on my car...except the 4wd height this thing has
clicky clicky for bigger pic
thats going to look awesome!
a dude on proutes ha a similar set of ziniks for sale with 80% tyres for 1200 bucks... if i had the money... lol
like the originals better but my opinion car is fkn awsome all round well done mate
Can I just ask what's "pro" about pro utes? Just curious...
