    So new updates only small, I liked the look of the SS badge at the rear of the cabin so i went and got a SV6 badge of ebay for $26.

    Also got a walkinshaw antenna from someone i know that works at HSV, he got me and my Dad 2 for $25 :)

    Think my Ute needs a clean ey.

    So new updates.

    I really like the look of the SSV's front fascia. I'd asked Holden but they said it would cost between $500 and $700. I ended up finding some chrome molding on eBay and used a hair dryer to get it shaped to the corners, i think it turned out really well and it looks abit more subtle then the original.

    Tell me what you think.

    This is what i was replicating.

    Your right, I picked it up from Barloworld.

    Which sailplane do you mean, I really want to put a SS sailplane on it but heard its expensive.

    Here are those other pics you asked for.

    I got Phreddy from ASR to come do some custom work for me. I got some dash lights and needles changed, knobs and lights for the cd input changed and some foot well lights put in.

    I plan to replace the interior lights behind the seats and above plus put some blue puddle lights on too.

    Hope you guys like it so far, give me some suggestions :)
