Finally got around to getting the ute tinted the other day. While I'm not completely happy with how dark it is, It is darkest legal and I didn't really want to go illegal. Turns out that the back window was already tinted (though it was going purple) to 24%, so the old owner probably removed the tinted from the side windows for a RWC. Still makes a nice change though.

Well, I finally got around to getting the Ute tuned the other day. I ended up going MAFless with a VCM OTR. Went from 179RWKW to 217, and I can definitely feel the difference. I also got my Holden strut brace fitted and my calipers painted. According to the guy that did the tune the clutch feels weak, so that will be the next upgrade. The next restriction was the cats and apparently the exhaust, whilst custom, is not that great. I'll try and replace the cats one day, followed by the cat back later.
