2001 VX Commodore
Name- Jeremy
Make - Holden
Model- VX Lumina Series 1 on LPG
Year- 2001
Colour - Silver
Transmission - 4 speed Automatic
Engine - 3.8L Ecotec V6
Diff - Factory 3.08 LSD
Exhaust - Stock, with chrone tip
Suspension - FE2 Suspension
Wheels - 18" VE Calais rims
Tinted windows (don't know the exact amount)

Interior mods:
Chrome Door Handles
Everything else stock

Future Mods
-HBD Side skirts and rear (currently being painted)
-VT SS lower front lip (currently being painted)
-HSV Driver kit or Pop-up Cup holders
-Piano black Dash facia
-Silver Plastic wheel nut covers (i've got 12 i need 8 more!!!)
-Eagle Blue spark plug leags
-Painting the engine cover either Silver or Black
-Maybe twin chrome exhaust tip, if i happen to run into some easy money

Also i heard since my cars on gas its more likely to backfire so i need another opening from the airbox cover (i think thats what its called), the guy before me cut a hole in the top of it and put some tape on it incase it backfires but it looks really scrappy. What do you guys reckon, how should i fix this?

Goal: to make this car look as clean as possible


Below is the sanded down HBD kit and VT SS lip. The front lip was in really bad condition because i picked it up from the wreckers separately, ill post some images of how i fixed it up once its painted.

Yeah, the guy who sold it has no idea then... :rofl: all round.

The suspension you've got in there if anything is just FE2.

Nice pick up for a first car, in particular with the sunroof. Will be interesting to see it once it's kitted.

side skirts on just doing the rear skirt and the front lip. hopefully get it done today
attaching the rear skirt to the rear bar has to be one of the hardest things ive ever done
