How would I go about removing the door strips but still keeping it looking neat?
And I don't wanna sound stupid or anything but what's colour code the mirrors mean? Haha

Yeaa I love the rims, apparently they're V8 Supercar rims :)

I think there is a guide in the How-To section for removing door strips. Color Code basically means paint them the same color as the car, i.e white

Ok thanks Mayes, I'll have a look and let you know how I go, bit scared about doing it myself as I don't wanna ruin it haha.
Yeaa I'll have a think about the mirrors, but again don't wanna stuff it up.


And I'll definitely be getting the rest of the SS kit, it's just a matter of money unfortunately, I got the car for $3500 (out of a $5000 loan) and used the left over money on a stereo, transfer of ownership fee and rego. So for now I'll just be concentrating on things that are cheap and will make the car look better haha.

Lookin good. Any chance of a couple more pics?
If you want to tidy it up but you're strapped for cash, upgrade the tail lights to series 2 if you don't have them already. Also change the side indicators to the clear ones instead of the orange. It just makes it look a lot neater imo. It's an easy job, and you can pick up the lights pretty cheap off ebay.

Ok, I went to take the door strips off and found a dint/scratches under the back passenger side strip (pics), I think the guy I bought it off had attempted to take the door strip off cause there was already one missing when I bought the car.
So because of this damage, it's a no to taking the door strips off for now unfortunately.

Anyway, I thought I'd upload a couple more pictures so I could get a few (cheap) ideas on what I can do to the car....
