    Benjamin's VX - F1NN

    2002 Holden Commodore VX Series II Executive.

    It looked pretty crap to start.. but now it polishes up alright thesedays.

    There are no performance modification on her whatsoever. I'm on a probationary license and have decided that it's probably best not to draw any unneccesary attention to her.

    --

    Started off as a VX Executive II, pretty basic, nothing special.

    I bought some personalised plates for her.

    Thought about putting a clubsport bodykit on it with teardrop lights..

    [​IMG]

    However I decided against this at the last minutes and changed to a fibreglass bodykit suited to HSV lights.

    It was a mistake getting the fibreglass kit, but the genuine GTO bonnet and VY mirrors were good investments.

    I then installed a very large sound system and CFA radio.

    And then converted my dash to a triple window cluster.

    I then bought some 19' VY GTS rims (genuine)..

    And this is what she looks like today:

    Nice car mate. Love the tripple window cluster! Was it hard installing it? Do you have to adjust anything else when putting one of those in? Thanks =]

    Future plans are pretty much swap it over to a genuine kit. Put some fog lights in. Windows tinted and then some time down the track drop a V8 in it if I get the time.

    Yeah front bumper is a problem. Need to get a genuine bumper bar at some stage when I get the cash.

    Did pretty much all the work myself.

    Cluster conversion was easy. Simply bought the statesman one off eBay and swapped it straight over. Went down to Holden and $50 later I had the cluster reprogrammed so it all works fine. Will go down to Vic Roads at some stage an get a form which states the speedo has been changed.
