    ey man, car looks sweet, if I were you I would go lower than FE2 though, I got 18's on mine n had FE2 standard and it sat too high, i'd recommend slightly lower, but its up to you mate, good luck with it!

    Thanks man, i wouldn't mind lower but i want practicability :p i learned my lesson with the ultra lows so never again haha. Don't want it to be to low and not interested in replacing all the shock absorbers/struts etc.

    Small update,money is tied up elsewhere nowadays (basically not the car :p) but went up to the sunshine coast for the weekend with the missus and some mates and the night before i applied some pinstripe (got it cheap) just for kicks, probably not to everyone's taste though. if you don't like it, then that's just to damn bad.

    Also in these photos is forum member Damien90 (aka SUCKA)

    Thanks haha. yeah once the paint starts chipping in the front again i'll remove it, don't think i'll bother with the back

    shine you mean? haha. was thinking of getting rid of the tint, over it. Or replace it with aftermarket blacked out tail lights

    The VZ Calias lights look nice - Google Image Result for http://forums.justcommodores.com.au/attachments/parts-other-items-sale/102418d1286083385-fs-vz-calais-tail-lights-calais-2.jpg

    I did see a pair of altezza chrome ones, but theyd look better in black (which they don't come in) and are only for the vy) - Google Image Result for http://holmart.com.au/online/images/ivy8000naalh.jpg

    Was thinking more along the lines of this one Holden VY Commodore Black Altezza Clear Tail Lights SS because i'll know they'll fit mine. My left tailight is a replacement light from a vy exec. so the one you showed me would actually fit as well. Just not sure about reflectors on the black lights, which is why i want to remove some/all of the tint on mine.

    Thanks man. maybe i'll just rub off the stuff covering the reflectors and redo it :p

    looking good mate, love the chrome at the back, makes you do a double take on it, in response to your question, i didnt clear coat it, i just gave it a coat of primer and 2 coats of black, and it is holding up fine, only been a couple months though, i dont have any credit to txt you either

    Haha has been a while ey. Nothing new to report though. Lost license. Lost interest in the car. Got license back. Interest slowly creeping back, but just basic maintenance, when the tax finally comes back i might spend something on the car. :blah blah:


    Sorry for the really late reply. Nah haha i just took these ones out, taped up what i didn't want painted and spray painted with the night shade stuff,not to much to look like cop bait,but enough to look different in a sense. :cops: don't like it but.
