Nothing more satisfying than giving your baby a wash, dry and wax :wax: to get her looking good.!!:yeah:



Got my head unit installed no worries, tweeters mounted on the dash.
Next mission to get some speakerz. I am fast becoming a Fusion convert after listening to some 5.25's at Repco along with 6's and a sub...

MMMM:D

After that I think I might get her lowered a bit to combat that 4 wheel driver road clearance.

Any point in getting low profile 15" rubber rings for the standard wheels? (45 or 50's?)

If the year was 1985, I'd think that car just came out of the showroom. :thumbsup:

Get some new rollers. Nothing over the top but at least 16's with 45 profile rubber. The bigger the wheel on a VK the better.

Paint the grey bars in the body paint and she'll look awsome.

Dunno about the big rims.

I was wanting to keep her looking original as.

What I thought might work is to get some 15" cop rims and low profile tyres.
Could then fit some budge-o Holden 15" plastic wheel covers so she "looks" standard.

Then after that I might lower her a bit so she doesnt have that 4 wheel drive look.

Goona keep the paint exactly the same, just get the wee dents taken out and have her resprayed.
Then, in 20 years time I can take her to car shows and people can oohhh ahhhh at the "standard" old arse VK

:yeah:

OR

Could get some big rims and keep the small arse stockies so when I am in a "classic" and "original" mood I can put them back on for those old school moments? :D

VS sedan and a VK DRGWGN
clean your mud guards ;) a bit of tyre blacker will fix them. don't remove them though or the side of the car will get dirty as quickly as you can clean it.

Well I rang the local Holden dealer and they have some slightly used 15" hubcaps from a VR that were "upstairs collecting dust".

Going to see them tomorrow - reckon they will do nicely. :thumbsup:

Now just have to get the rims and tyres.
