    Looks like a good first car mate but I think the holden sticker needs to come off, we all know what it is.

    yes there only a few light dents on the drivers door and one in front of the fuel filler thats a very strange dent, Its like some one has hammered a bike axle of something into the panel (5c big and goes in about 1 cm) other than that is perfect! no rust and pretty straight for a 21 year old car :)
    Your vk looks pretty sweet from the pic :D

    Done.

    Shoot a mod a PM next time, we don't get to read all the threads so it can be missed.

    I don't know how true those new specs are because they were written on a piece of paper with heads of different question type things. I should be getting an amp to run my sub some time and a new steering wheel (old one has no horn thing (round plastic thing you connect the wires to :( ) and Hopefully a Brock Group A grill :D
