    Thanks mate! :)

    Yeah I had to get rid of the ute as I needed a family car. I miss the ute though. But with this vs, it's a nice blank canvas for a sleeper. I'm going to do subtle mods ftw! In the boot, I'm going for wild with subs, and inside the car, it will be stealth.

    I sure do.... I installed some front Fusion reactor splits, last weekend. And this weekend, I'm installing an amp and a 12" sub. It's nothing special, it's one of those MTX subs in a suited MTX enclosure. And once I get a job, I'll design and install a false wall around the enclosure, with interior matched carpet trim. :yeah:

    I'll take some pics along the way though!

    I'm very happy with the results! As a matter of fact, I won a SQ comp with the set up, last friday night.

    the colour looks silver to me but it might just be the lighting/camera. can we have a confirmation on the exact colour?

    Thanks mate! :)

    I'm about to tint the windows next week, when the film arrives. I was thinking about getting a set of steel rims (chasers) and respraying them in the same colour as the car, and putting crome trim rings on them. I might also do some light air brushed crome flames to the rims as well. But I won't respray this one, as I light the colour as is.

    Yep it is the same colour as sweefu's :)

    It one of those non pearl colours that makes it look silver in the shade, and green in the sun...
