    Nice looking car there Jesse :thumbsup:
    good thing your getting rid of the chev badges :p or at least match them on the rear.or vice versa. My suggestion/idea would be to paint up the interior surrounds/driving cluster etc. A matching red or black would look great

    lol im not that interested with the interior at the moment to be honest, will eventually bother with it all but im more interested with how it looks on the outside and how it performs, getting a set of pacemaker extractors and a redback exhaust hopefully in the next 2 weeks so that should be great :)

    lol exhaust will sound pretty mad :) and yeah taping up the writing is really difficult, best way to do it if you wanted the writing say chrome, spray the entire thing chrome, then chuck blue tack in the writing, then spray it black, pull the blue tack out, you have chrome :)

    Oh and you cant put the silver grill on the executive bar, needs to have a VY S Pack front bar otherwise it just simply doesnt fit, but yeah its good looking, but its not a chev so its coming down once i finish customizing my holden one :)

    lol thats 3 dollar autobarn spray paint, three coats of black, 2 of clear, just dont touch it after your car has been running and it will stay like that for ages :), cause i got the bonnet scoops mine is really filthy now constantly having bugs and **** fly and get stuck to it but yeah as long as u dont have a gto bonnet it will stay sick, should see the artwork my mate does on his, he is great at it :)

    Oh yeah for sure its better, but spending six dollars to get your engine bay looking awsome without any problems? **** im not complaining :) and honestly me and my mates have been experimenting with lots of different spray paints for rims/trims/engine bays etc and the 3 dollar autobarn stuff is actually one of the best for holding its colour providing you prep properly

    lol thanks mate, need to get some decent photos tho hate the ones i have been taken from my crappy phone :S and its from HSP Ute lids in Melb, its fibreglass mate the steel ones iv heard dont fit very well generally and add weight etc so went the fibreglass, its top quality and actually a legal, but yeah great way to add some more face to the front end of the car :)

    OK here it is Learn to spell criticism

    Thats it there aint no more, a great car mate !

    Personally speaking dont bother spending your money on adding VZ SS Guards etc, stick to what the car already has and put it into more hardcore Mods that not many others try or do. You can add the VZ Gaurds and this an that and in the end it would be just a VY with Jigsaw parts as we call them around here.

    IDEA # 1
    Ever thought of putting all your money into a Tilt Front for your VY ? So the whole front becomes one piece and tilts when opening , a great Mod, that was done on all Vehicles many years ago. Just my two cents and I hope you understand where i'm coming from
