    lol! That's ok. I was just asking because I'm after a pair of stainless mufflers for my SS (old ones rusted through:().

    I bet it looks HEAPS better now it's painted hey? The kit on my VN still hasn't been painted yet! It's been on the car for almost 12 months! lol

    Hey mate, How did you get the dash colour in other colours with the blue? I thought you could only do one colour? Because that looks bloody great like that..

    Thanx man :thumbsup: well theres a bit of stuffing round inside each instrument basicly u have 2 make ur own enclosed sections 2 trap the 1 colour inside (say red) so it doesnt escape and mix with the blue and vicer virsa so the blue stays out from ruining the red colour inside the enlcosed area or even with the yellow i have there.

    The needles well they r different again they r explained better in detail in the LED thread in the VT section basiclly with those u have 2 mod the plastic that propells the light 4 the needles so u can use ur own individual lighting 2 b directed straight 2 them.

    most ppl ive seen so far go the cheap way out and dont put the extra work 2 get different colours in there usually ppl just swap the globes with LEDs and think thats it but being only forward direction light they need a lil more work so u dont get the cheap effect being all 1 colour

    next project is the lights 4 the VP's dash :w00t: not sure wat colours im gonna use there 2gether yet but gonna go somthing different other than blue im thinkin mayb red, white and yellow

    your car looks awesome just one thing that i might suggest if your going to have them tail lights in it man change the garish from the VT to the VX makes it look more sexier

    He's got a painted one going on the car soon I believe :) It will look 100x better though, you're right.

    thanx 4 the comments but sorry guys i hate the VX garnish the sharp corners around the number plate just doesnt suit the bubbly curves on the VT i rekon so thats y ive got the garnish painted. Around the number plate on the VT garnish just seems 2 have a more natural flow look 2 it rather than a sunken hole lol also i wanted the boot lock in there ive masked off the silver around the hole so it looks like its ment 2 b that way more plus the silver matches the 2 tone silver.

    not sure if uve noticed but ive got the black n blue theme goin? black head lights, rims, side indicators, mirrors, strips, tint so thats the reason y i went with the altezzas on the rear i also dont like chrome hence y ive gone with black so that does rule out the calais option lol

    Thanx 4 the comments guys well finally got the garnish painted and on the car now looks heaps better and actually turned out better than wat we expected, theres no seen lines or indents from the old garnish coming through the paint so it worked a treat :thumbsup: dont mind the dirty car its been sittin on the shed collecting dust over the past month haha.

    Thanx 4 the comments, savage wat did u mean down there? where else do u want me 2 put it :p lol u must mean how far it sticks out ay? well i actually wanted a tip that was cut on like a 30 degree angle 2 follow the rear skirt around but couldnt find 1 with the rounded lip so it sticks out as far as it does on the left side coz we had 2 modify the rear skirt 2 fit twins under there, had 2 cut like 30mm off the skirt then shape it 2 suit as best we could.

    No the tip looks fine, I just think it'd look better within a cutout in the rear bar, more like the VX Clubsport factory look . . . it just looks a little awkward hanging below the rear bar like it was just stuck on afterwards.... Btw I'm not just trying to pick faults with your car mate I quite like it :)
