    Thanks mate, It sounds ALOT better. The Exhaust guy just basically unbolted the original ones and bolted the new ones on.. it took a day to get the tips machined from 2.25 to 2.5

    but worth it, sounds great when you start it and even better under heavy acceleration:thumbsup:

    Looking good Paul! :thumbsup:

    How are those interior lighting pics coming along? I'm thinking about getting mine done too. Phreddy did a great job on my VY back in the day...

    He has changed my centre binnacle led's from red to white but has ordered some brighter ones for my dash as they are not bright enough ( we tried but phreddy and i thought they could look better )

    i will post them up when he sorts it out.....

    How's the ssv going ?

    I will be removing the hotdogs soon and replacing them with just straight thru pipe.... hoping for better (deeper) sound don't think it will up performance by much.....
