    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
