3.8L V6 VY Commodore
Hi all,

I am building a project car. I currently have a base model 03 holden lumina, with no modifications yet

My plans for it:
Front bar - Either a holden SS VY bar or a holden SSX bar
Rear bar - HSV rear bar
tail lights - calais vz
headlights - VY SS
Spoiler - HSV senator spoiler
Wheels - not sure, im thinking 18 inch black wheels with thick rear tyres

im also going to re paint this myself (painter) i'm not sure what color though, i was thinking black or red, anybody got suggestions??

I need help with PERFORMANCE parts though, does anybody have any recommendations.
i am still on my green P's and therefore do not want something too powerful. (current limit is 200kw/350torque) or something along those lines

and if anybody has any other suggestions throw them out there, this is a car in the marking after all

please help!

Generally an urgent thread is someone stranded on the side of the road


Generally speaking, someone stranded on the side of the road will call RACV, not post a JC thread.

The blokes obviously over-excited, no reason to chastise him.

At least I criticised and then gave some constructive input. Not just solely criticise. Not everyone's an RACQ member.
Here are a couple of threads I'd consider urgent if it's important to clear up the definition of urgent:

I'd be difference, I would respray a colour that is not on the a VY colour palette; VEs or FG Falcons have some nice colours.
