thankz for comment guys, the new bonnet badge is off a WH stato, cost me about $60 i think(but i work for holden so got it cheaper) it sits a bit further back than the original one so you can see a little mark where the orig used to sit..but im not fussed
its done 241***kms but ive put a newer dash in reading 165***km and i got it for a steal..$4800!:)

yea i like the caprice wheels to..for now till i can afford something better, should look better lowered!:)
Caprice goes heaps better than the calais(that has full exhaust, CAI) alot smoother and comfy ride to(till i lower it)

Ive finally got most of my stereo gear in now(will get pics soon) and have replaced all drive belts/pulleys, new rocker cover, LIM and supercharger gaskets and welded up the two coolant holes in the LIM to save having to bleed the cooling system every time the charger comes off, also changed the charger oil, engine oil, new coolant and soon a trans service
