Nice first car mate. Great buy too. Why can't you legally drive it yet? Power in a V6 is very limited without supercharging or stroking. Maybe change your exhaust set up and get some high ration rockers and a tune. That should give you a 10-25rwkw increase at least.

Get yourself some SS taillights, do the SS conversion for the headlights and paint your dash, wheel spokes, handbrake, shifter, vents, instrument surround, door handle and anything i've missed to the satin chrome colour like the SS. Should be sweet after that.

i can drive it but only on my l's, therefore very slow.

i was looking the doin exhaust but would it make a difference i got 2 1/2 catback, would i need to do extractors aswell?

i wouldnt have the confidence or no-how to pull my dash apart and paint it

deffinatly want to get the "phreddyed" aswell

Painting the dash should be rather easy. Haven't done it yet but I'm only 16 so I don't want to touch the car till I get my P's. But look at these: https://forums.justcommodores.com.a...h-and-steering-wheel-spokes.84810/post-940147

They should guide you pretty well. I sprayed my brakes when I was 15 so don't think you aren't able to do something like this based on your age.
