Hi guys and girls, i'd just like to show you my pride and joy! hope you enjoy looking at the as much as i enjoy owning the car. I also welcome any feedback, good or bad comments...Every single piece of feedback helps a little.

King spring lows in the back

Rewiring of electronics (previous owner went at her with a freaking chainsaw)
Level 2 dash cluster
Super white headlights and parkers (although parkers appear blue in photos i can assure you they arent)

***Future mods***
Lows all round
Pod filter (maybe)
Group A bodykit

nice man, if your gonna go a new spoiler, do a vq or vn ss lip, will look much better. def make sure the springs come soon, riding like a 4x4 in those pics.

and dont bother with a pod, go to holden spare parts and get a VS supercharged Cold Air Intake and use that with the kn panel. will do much better

Looks pretty nice mate, only thing i can really say though is dont do the whole white interior thing, personally i reckon it's better to keep a bit of originality about your car. I reckon if your really keen to upgrade your interior, get yourself a nice calais interior or something, painted interior parts to me just look tacky and bring the car down..Just my opinion though....

yeah ive thought about a calais interior, they do look good...im planning on going down to the wreckers and testing some spray on a vn/vp dash just to see how it looks probs will go with the calais interior though.

Cheers for the input

I wouldnt go spraying the dash, i'd be using Vinyl dye.. Works really well on the softer textured plastics.. Pretty much any plastic that armourals up well, responds well to vinyl die....

speaking of VX seat, I found a nice set VX S pack seats at the wreckers, but apparantley it's a bit of work getting the back ones in, so im still thinking about it..would look real nice though, and yeah a **** load better to sit in than what's in the VP now-
