when i said that there was a hiccup with the door trim removal, as you can see in one of the photo's the paint came off with the trim for once piece! turns out guy who i bought it from failed to tell me it had been resprayed (the panel beater said very dodge job too) so off to get door resprayed after queens birthday (N) sour note to end on such a long day getting that bloody sikaflex off!

anyway let me know what you guys think of it, comments and criticism welcome.

Also don't spoil it by putting those friggen 19" Sen Sig rims on it. Every 2nd 'fully sick' Commodore on the road has them. They are the gheyest of ghey rims.

yeah sorry guys,
about the rims, your right i dont wanna look like every commodore out there but apart from those rims i havent found any i like, the only other ones are dolce dc-04 but they look like im a bogan, got any ideas for other rims, prefereably satin chrome but open to anything?

ordered chrome window surround from someone on just comm. so getting it next week xD and booking in interior lights change to blue and white as soon as i get the dosh.

Very nice looking Exec for sure. Looks like you have the full HBD lip kit option including the boot lip which doesnt show up all that often. Will look awesome lower and with some rims. Maybe even WK side repeaters and chrome door handles but that might just be my preferance.

yeah still not sure about rim choice, nothing really jumps out at me.

interior or exterior chrome? i like the interior looking at getting some for about 100$ :)

what are WK repeaters? is that the vz indicator flutes?

just cant wait for my tail lights! thats definitely first on the list :)

cheers

nice colour, i like the boot lip

tint your tailights instead of buying calais ones, you'll be just as happy with the result for $15

wk repeaters are statesman indicators. Whats with the red engine cover? I reckon jsut leave the VY ss rims on it. Lower a bit in the rear it will look tops. Why dosnt a berlina front grill fit?
