Hey guys been ages but i thought I'd finally get my car on here.
Would just like to say this is only my second car. Bought it for $7000 and did have big plans for her but decided I'm just gonna keep her kind of stealth and just do little things, until i can drive a v8 (as I'm on my P's).
Thats why you'll notice i haven't really done external and performance mods.

Mods so Far:


*Replaced factory alloys with some black ceptors :)
*Debadged everything but the all important Holden badges.
*Chrome dress rings, nuts and black center caps
*Polished the yellow haze out of the headlights
*Replaced parker and license plate lights with smd LEDs for that bright white look
*Installed footwell lighting blue
*Installed my double din Pioneer headunit...AVH-P4250DVD
*Kicker splits up front (ks series), Kicker 6x9's in rear doors
*Dual solo baric L7 12" subs, Option Audio OAX2000 amo (2000 wRMS aww yeah)
*Big kicker vinyl on back and front windscreen
*Insulated the boot, sound deadening soon

Possible Future Mods:

#Brought OAC160 amp for speakers
#1/0 stinger wiring ordered
#Distributor t's bought for boot
#Customize boot space at some point
#Exhaust if I can be bothered, just 2.5 catback
#Lower it also if i can be f'd







Used iphone for pics thats why they are abit hazy.
Got subs installed will post pics asap.

ahh remember the times, first cars. :) Like your sound system install mate. Forget the vinyl advertising. I know it’s the trend but it advertises for scum as to what to steal from your car. To each their own, just my opinion. Anyway looks like your havin fun. Enjoy!

Hmm considering they are only running on 1500wrms...they hit bloody hard mate...I haven't had them turned all the way up yet...once my 4chan is in I'll be able to really crank them without the speakers struggling...
If I was gonna recommend anyone a sub I'd say kicker ftw...
Easily loudest car in my town :)

Updated the wiring in the back of my headunit. Tried to tidy it up and produce better connections.
Just got some shrink wrap and a few connectors from Supercheap :)

Before:

Slowly getting there. Also the masking tape with numbers is because I'm colour blind and everything was
already wired up correct as a friend helped me ages ago.
