    Hey LthlThrt is this the car you have the Vz wiper set up on? If so can you please send me a photo close up to see where you modified?
    Cheers mate.

    Hey mate, VZ wipers are ****. I recently got a VE wiper upgrade for my VZ SS, and they kick arse. They only cost me about $26 each from Bursons, so look into that if you can.

    Hey Aaron , I'm interested in the complete wiper set up for vy/Vz for a vt it's just a little project I'm working on,
    LthlThrt said he has of had this on a car and it was pretty good with slight modifications so I was wanted a look to see exactly what he did.

    Thanks for the VE wiper idea tho
    I will check it out.
    Cheers

    it has atleast one thing on your mates XR8....its not a ford, job done, looks clean mate I like the tray cover, could drop it a little but its good to see a ute that looks like it actually gets used as a ute..see alot of utes slammed so low they couldn't haul a box or tissues without bottoming out. saw you were from cairns area too, I just moved up here a month ago

    thankyou all for your feedback, famous_carcrash, this isnt what i have the wiper setup on. i had it on my previous, and i dont have any photos of it setup with the VT bonnet sorry.
    Cul-Baire give me 2 months and your XR8 will be still sitting at the lights by the time i cross the line
    1dvsbstd, cheers mate, stoked with it, been doing a bit of work to it to so will update in a minute.
    Delish-VY, I have recently dropped it a little bit, and can carry 2 50kg life rafts in the back lol. Yes i am about 1hour north of Cairns, i go down there occasionally, actually need to make a trip down this weekend to pick up new globes and a couple little extras.

    ok so updates;
    I Have now completed;
    Lowering
    Chrome exterior door handles
    installed my HSV GTO steering wheel
    and De-badging (dont have photos as of yet)

    and am currently doing;
    custom Calais door trims
    custom black roof lining VZ style
    Paint my WH Dash
    and getting Brushed stainless sill plates

    so without further ado
    photos

    looks good mate, what happened to the door trim on your passenger side?, a couple of the boys in cairns were organising a small get together probably next weekend, should join in the talk in the cairns section of QLD members.

    Lookin good mate, can I ask what springs and shocks are in it now? The height is perfect, I too have a VU SS and dont want to dump it in the weeds, just want to lower it a little to get rid of the 4x4 look, I'd be happy for it to be the same height as yours is now.

    cheers bud, yeah i love looking in the rear view and seeing them, driving a sedan is sooo weird now, especially reversing.
    Hey bud, no worries mate the springs are KINGS springs and are; KHFL47SL fronts and KHRL46SLHD rears.The rear shocks are lowered MONROE GT SPORTS and the fronts are just stock shocks at the moment. but you cant notice much difference with the stock shocks mate. hope this helps. :D
    haha cheers mate, feels great, but feeling the need for more power though haha. feels wicked hearing the sounds and the pull when you drop it and take off. il have to check out your new ride

    its been a while since I've updated this.
    So
    Updates;
    Been fully debadged,
    Gaurds Rolled
    Sounds System is half done now, and my interior door trims are almost finished
    bought a catch can to install soon once i make a bracket to mount it
    gave a full polish and detail on the exerior then went and got some photos with my mates truck
