Hey there everyone.
I'm new to the site and have been checking out afew peoples rides so I thought I'd post up mine.

I've only had it for about 2 weeks so far (got it on the 30th of December 2010) but I'm already LOVING it!

I don't know TOO much about the car as the dealer i bought it off only knew the basic info about the vehicle.

It's a 5 speed 2002 VU Series Two Utility.

But so far the list of things that I've done and the previous owner before me is:

-Dark tinting (maybe 15-20%?)
-Lowered on king springs (not sure what type. lows? super lows? if anyone can see from my pics what they could be can you please inform me? :D )
-SS Body Kit
-SS Foglights (had to wire these up myself as the previous owner only had them there for show)
-SS factory 18's
-Plastic Tray Liner
-Black Altezza Tail Lights
-2.5inch RedBack,Catback Exhaust System with Twin tip
-Gear Shifter Knob (Same pattern on it as my Phone case haha :surprise:)
-Jenson 7inch DVD Single-Din Headunit
-Green Footwell LED's
-New Thermostat
-New Radiator
-Clear side indicators
-De-Badged Tailgate and under side indicators
-Painted engine cover
-Ordered Personalised Plates already, should be here in afew weeks :)

Thats about it so far.

There are afew things I need to do still such as:

-Eventually change the speakers in the doors with some Kenwood 6.5inch's I bought
-Change front n rear Bushes
-Change the Oil Pressure Switch
-Change the rubber Grommets/Mounts I think they are called, under the Engine.
-Bleed all the brakes
-New Passenger side window + tint (the current one has afew scratches)
-New Arial
-Get a Hardtop
-Electric Windows :p

Most of these will be done with my Family friend who is a Really good mechanic who works for Lube Mobile :)

So here are some Pics :)











Some Camber :)

a small update :)

so i wired up my old 4ch amp from my old lancer. i attached some pioneer 6x9's and some kenwood 6.5's onto it. sounds alot louder n clearer :) it didnt take too long to do, hada mate come round n help me out.

screwed the amp into the wall behind my seat and made two custom box's for the 6x9's to sit in behind each seat on the floor. while i was at it i decided to spray my engine cover black, got over the green colour :( haha :)







might give the car a wash this arvo when the sun goes down abit n the heat goes away :)

You simply spray painted the engine cover?
Did you use superfine sandpaper on it first or anything?
Im interested, my VX is that dark green colour and i dont want the usual boring grey, maybe black or dark green, but im not 100% sure how to do it. Properly and safely, anyway.
