    Thanks AitchEBoy, Ones the car is registered i will looking at acquiring everything needed (scheduled for January 2010). I will be doing the conversion my self (to the best of my ability).

    Interior Interior Interior. Got to find some material to re-trim the doors. Then finish taking the purple tinting off (can't stand it, thats the second car i've had with the same purple tinting).

    And then just wait until next year for rego :D so that i can drive the car to other specialist places to finish the rest of the plans off.

    THe other wheels looked awesome, but still, cant go wrong with the walkys, especially once you lower it a bit more. ;)

    Sure you'll be able to wait till next year lol?

    Didn't want to find out one day from a cop that my rims exceed the +2" rule :D And i think they fit the car much better. But i did like the other rims too, can't have both :)

    Can't drive a V8 yet, so waiting till next year. If only i did not stay on red P plates for so long, i'd be able to drive it in June this year :(

    Ah fair enough, that makes sense. So did you get suspended or something? Caught doing burnouts? :p

    Lol no never done anything like that on the road. I just stayed on my red P's for a year and a halve instead of one year (was to busy to go for greens) and that means and will be finishing my green P's next year (January)

    But I've never had any sort of police trouble and my record is 100% clean :D

    That's a really nice commodore. Are you sure it's the original paint job? It looks too good. Or did I just read this thread wrong?

    It looks to good because i haven't photographed all the surface rust that's on it :D I'll try and take some pics. All around the door trims, under the car, top of the doors where the windows are and 2 rust bubbles that i need to repair :wax:

    Haha, well don't photograph it then.
    As long as it's only surface rust it should be pretty easy, I presume (I know nothing about rust repairs, except you can sand some of it).
