Oh wow really? Not sure when that may have been, the only thing I can think of is probably cause it's near my mate's house, I personally don't actually live around there. But I do live in Castle Hill. Where abouts are you from Paul?

Hey Braba,

I got Greg to add the low level outputs. I actually found him from this forum, goes by the name of Phreddy and has his own forum section right at the top called ASR Audio and Electronics. You should check his work out, very highly recommended. All I did after that was as you would with an aftermarket head unit, install wiring, run the RCA's from the back of the head unit and that's it.

Rims

Hey guys,

Trying to decide what rims to go for was wondering if I could get other people's opinions. I have taken some photos and photo-shopped 3 different rims which appeal to me. The idea is I wanted to keep the rims within the Holden range, I'm not really a fan of aftermarket rims.

Pictures are in order of my preference, however I don't know whether I should go with 18s or 19s. Not sure if 19s will be too big or if I have to get my guards rolled and what not.

Picture 1 shows the 18" VZ GTO Pontiac rims
Picture 2 shows the 19" VE SSV rims
Picture 3 shows the 18" VE SS rims

Yea perhaps, that's pretty funny though, car that looks the same. Then again I haven't added my personal touch yet. I don't live far from you, I actually live in the Castlewood area of Castle Hill. Maybe we should organise a Hills cruise one day? I reckon the GTO rims would suit better too, plus they are only 18" so tyres would be cheaper too :p
