    sweet still got first post lol, nice list you have there, maybe instead of tinting the indicators remove them all together and make it one smooth panel. love the video as well, i see you had to take it down, but if its allowed put it back up. and definatly get the ss headlights, look better then the mod that people do.good job on a nice clean ride, need to put some interior pics up though

    I did, i squirreled most of it on a ps3 and the signature edition of Gran Turismo 5 etc. :p i have the money to do the front as well, but i'm just gunna hold on it for now, in case i need the money for the unexpected haha. Bills, food, petrol etc. Just figured it'd be the "logical" thing to do :p
    Should look good when it's all done haha.Yeah relatively flat haha. It'll be sweet. Haha nice work :p

    Haha thanks. the sticker is a play on the "every K over is a killer" slogan that was spread around in the media etc. plus that and my bad sense of humour. I saw it on a ute, thought it was hilarious so i did it. and you'd be surprised how often i get tailgated (doing the speed limit mind you) because I'm stereotyped as a hoon.

    :rofl:
