    Vinyl only. Real carbon fibre is illegal and costs about $1500 for the bonnet. Still doesn't stop the occasional pull over and check.

    I paid OnShow in Brisbane to apply the vinyl for me. Pay someone else to do it, it is a long process for a professional and not easy to do because of its sheer size.

    Looking good so far man. Glad you got the dash lights done, looks so much better. There's something about the stock green dash lights that i don't like, i dunno...

    Anyways, second pic down you look like an emergency vehicle, cant believe you haven't been done for that yet :p

    Probably time of the year, drunk drivers > $100 light fine. But you're right, I will change today to white.

    Nice car mate, I like how you have gone with the blue theme haha. Been thinking of doing that with my cars but i'm not sure how to plus I haven't got the money to do that yet.

    But so far everything on this car looks really good, keep up the good work :)

    Looking really good mate. I have also done the carbon fibre dash and a crap load of other stuff. Check my thread below for some more ideas :)
    BTW do you have the fog lights installed or do you just have the surounds?

    They were A BITCH! You have to remove the whole front bar to install, it took me about 2 hours. Two screws on top, two under the bar cover.

    Fog light bezzels are empty, CAI filter is right behind the passenger side fog light and allows better breathing.

    The console? It is wrapped in carbon fibre vinyl, I did this myself too as well as the little silver part behind the console lid and the silver part below the back seat AC vents.

    Thanks Jamie :) Nah, ASR did them, the same person that did Sol's ute. #### that for a joke, I was watching the guy do them and no way I would have the patience.

    EDIT: Only $340 for full conversion and speed variable needles too. Cheap for the amount of work Greg had to do as well as his years of experience.
