That's my baby !.. Great buy congrats - sweet colour (biased):D..

Word of advice. Watch out for the swirl marks that colour just brings them out so bad.

Check out my ride.. The series 2 berlina.. Couple of little extra things, Chrome around the windwos sets it off a little more away from the exec.. Chrome door handles from the WL-WK caprice one of them look good.

sweet ride mate, make the gear shifter button and handbrake buttons in chrome first on your to do list. They look sweet and will match the interior handles really nicely.♠

Yeh mate got a leather interior kit the other day

Also is it better for a mechanic to swap the steering wheel over? wouldn't want to do anything because of the airbag.

Nice mate.. I'd go Auto elec for the steering mate. That way they can reset the airbag light if it goes off. They would be more capable then a general mechanic.

Have installed the new leather centre console lid, Leather handbrake with Chrome button and Leather Auto Shifter with Chrome button. Makes the interior look so much better. Also installed my new head unit, sub and amp.

Have also got some Rear Super Low King Springs I was gonna get a mate to put in, do i need anything else before i get them put in? Like shorter shocks or anything?
