    I did this a little while ago but forgot to post it, i stripped the carpet out of the boot area and put down a heap of sound deadener to reduce the drone from the exhaust. It's still not perfect, but one day when i have more time and space I aim to strip the whole interior and do to floors and roofs.

    Got my headlights polished up. Also dropped the car off at the panel beaters on Monday for a bit of work, Can't wait to have it back.

    The paint on the front was starting to get really bad and was peeling in large pieces, so I decided it was time for same paint. I got the front end (bumper, bonnet, fenders) and the roof racks done while it was there.

    Much better.

    Clear coat is the devil on these commodores now they are getting older, Looks awesome though with the freshen up! I'm not sure how i feel about the roof rack rails being painted though.

    Well it has been a massive, massive year. Having a daughter and preparing for a huge exam I needed to pass after a year in my current job took a huge toll on me mentally and physically, but now that's out of the way (Although my daughter is becoming steadily more labour intensive), it's time to show this old car some love.

    Took a trip to Boost and Tune solutions in Albion today. The reason I had to go so far was because although every man and his dog can tune an LS, only 2-3 people in Australia will tune an L67 with the factory computer. And this man knows his stuff. Although the power gain was minimal on paper, there was a massive torque gain, and the power curve is higher at lower RPM, and the shift points has been drastically altered. The result is a car that much nicer when cruising, and much quicker off the line. I also noticed a very big drop in fuel consumption on the way home. The AFR with the MACE memcal were also way out in high RPMs, so that has been brought back to a nice level.
