    Looks like a good first car!

    With a bit of a tidy, it'll come up a treat.

    May I ask how much you paid for it?

    Yet another VS ute to ad to the growing number on the forum!
    Have a look at my thread mate, it has lots of the future mods you want to do, I'm sure you'll find some inspiration.
    Can I suggest: An SS front bar and foggies, hardtop and cutting off the tonneau hooks and finishing the rest of the red trolley strip.
    Beside that mate, very nice, it has heaps of potential...

    Nice ute mate. Certainly looks tidy, that's for sure. Great for the P's.

    Removing that sports bar made a world of difference too. Doesn't look like a bogan's ute ;) Not sure what's going on with those purple wheels though haha

    yeah they are splits haha but i never got around to connecting them up properly haha so all they put out is bass pretty much but 6x9s running off an amp are loud enough
    here is what my 6x9s look like have made a "parcel shelf" thing to mount them in and then the seats hold them hard up againts the firewall haha
