HAHAH Mud Flaps are stayin, they give me a idication of how much room i got b4 scrapage.

Colour codeing would have been there if she was a S2 but i dont mind the black handles, least it has white mirrors.

As for mags im currently looking at sum thru my dads work, but got a few things that need to be fixed b4 them, and im goin 17's i dont want a really ruff ride.

I need my Racks and pwr steer pump fixed and i think my Diff CV is on its way out, got a nice clunk if u hit a bump and goin a good speed.

Cheers for ya comments

Yesterday i did a bit of a shonky reverse park, anyway the gutter ripped off one of my rear mud guards soo they have all been removed, hope u like that VSSPAK.

Tekka goin to have to meet up one time, go out for a cruze round town.
And i cant work out how u didnt know about any of the cruze's we have had....

Thinking about buying sum 16inch 5 spoke mags n 2x12in P1 Rockford subs and RF 900w mono amp, his VL is heading to the wreckers n has these for sale.

I wouldnt mind the amp n mags, but dont really want the subs as there SQ isnt as good as my JBL's but mine dont go anywhere near what the P1's pump out, soo im deciding if i should go SPL ova SQ or just make a completly sealed bandpass box to try make it a bit better SQ, ino a bandpass witha port sounds crap but im not sure how it would go without a port n being fully sealed chamber front n rear of sub.

Goin out there on Sunday have a listen n work out if i should get em or not.

Til next update Cya's round,Cheers for takin the time to look in ere.

Audio will never be preety much covered, there is always romm for more or better stuff.

Wouldnt mind dumpin the ars a bit more, but would have to get exhaust fixed up as it hangs low near the diff coz they couldnt bend for crap, soo im just gettin a new one, coz dude wont fix it, he recons it will only go up another cm but there is bout 4cm room there, he didnt even looked just asummed.
