No photos... It's in there.
Had a go with Leatherique "Rejuvenator Oil" and "Prestine Clean", which is probably total overkill for Holden "I can't believe it's not vinyl" leather found in the VE. But is sure as **** it works, the seats feel a lot better, the leather surfaces have give to them now. The fronts are going to get a second treatment to work out some more of the wrinkles but it's already like a new car compared to what it was.
Before n' after
Old wheel to whoever comes gets it first off gumtree.
Lowered all round, Superpro roll control kit front and rear, KYB shocks, new strut mount bushings and bearings.
Projector headlights, 4300k Philips globes (inc fogs), genuine sports armour kit (minus upper piece).
SSV tail lights are in, no pic tho.
Done 3000 kms since last registration, I clearly need to drive it more.
More progress. Don't tell the girlfriend how much money this crap costs...
GM Motorsport REX 1 3/4 equal length 4-1 headers - high flow cats - bolts right up to the X-Force catback the car came with, which means I now have a fully stainless exhaust setup. Sounds purposeful - eliminated the idle drone I used to have and hollers pretty hard when you get going. Car feels stronger just off the little test drive I did.
Any vids with the new set up ?
Keep an eye out this weekend.
G8 diffuser. Tried fitting it awhile back but didn't work out. Took the bumper off this morning to get it right. Re-used the stock securing scrivet things on the inside of the bar to make it secure.
And making sure it didn't fall off by going for lunch.
GoPro technical issues.
Click for noise.
Sounds good, makes me miss manuals a little. A little.
I wouldn't miss a clutch that could handle 400+rwkw...
Also I read the ripshifter instructions for this thing... what an effort. Might as well just pull the box out and do the clutch at the same time.
That sounds like a good idea to me actually, I would likely opt for that option.
On mobile, this might work.
Can't-believe-it's-not-dynamatt in the back of the car today - floor and panels behind the seats, boot floor, under parcel shelf, boot lid, inner and outer of back doors.
I'll do the front later...
Chassis now complete. Front swaybar swap: not fun.
So now, the car is setup with:
Superpro front and rear adjustable swaybars, adjustable end links
Superpro TRC1000 and TRC1001 control/castor arms
Kings SSL all round (ass is too low, scrapes with passengers on board on normal roads... stock rears going back in)
KYB Excel-G shocks
Michelin Pilot Sport 4S all round
Cheap and effective and not ebay-coilover p-plater spec
Pics of low ?
At Kiama a while back:
