    haha the security cover is sweet as...were you the one that asked ages ago if there was a possible way to get the original cover back on?
    those rims are nice but i'm amazed how the colour eats them...i wouldnt have guessed 19's and yes nice tint...

    haha cheers mate, when i heard Mobb Deep were comin' to town i made that CD to get me back into that mid 90's New York hip hop, theres a lotta classic sh*t on that disc!


    yeah some of the shots don't really do justice to the rims, but imo the dark colour sets off the chrome nicely, yeah that was me asking about the original cover! i decided against ripping the actual face plate off the stock head unit, i made a tiny little casing out of 3 mil MDF to sit on top of the head unit, took some photos of the head unit, got them printed up professionally and stuck it on the top, i mean it's not gonna fool any theives who know what there doing, but if you just have a quick glance inside you wouldn't think it's anything more than a stocky....i've got a few spare prints of the head unit if anyones interested...

    oh and the flash from the camera sorta brought out the little bumps and whatnot in that fake cover, it looks a lot better in the flesh...

    cheers mate p.s i finally took those mud guards off and got some slim line plates so it's all looking a lot sleeker nowadays lol..

    anyway the security cover isn't really a security cover, and it didn't come with the head unit, i just took some decent quality photos of the stock Eurovox head unit, whipped up a little box out of 3 and 6 mil MDF to sit flush over the head unit, painted it black and stuck the photo of the old head unit on there, it's not gonna deter your professional car thieves and **** but if you just have a quick glance it looks like it's just a stocky inside the car...


    the tint is 20% on the back, 28% around the sides, got no idea if it's legal i think it might be the next level past legal...

    tint professor did it, cost me $265...money well spent imo!

    love the colour mate, if i was to buy a vx it would be that colour or black! i wish my rear camber was as straight as ur's!! gotta get my camber kit checked out! rims suit real nice, i rekon u should get the woodgrain for the whole centre console like in the calais's, i rekon it will set interior off!

    haha, that's clever...kinda. but yeah, if you get a professional thief, it won't deter them.

    thats strange with tha tint tho. i'm about 2 get my windows tinted next week tha darkest legal...i was told by the tint professor as well that 35% is tha darkest???? that's for tha side windows, tha back can be darker i think...

    i need 2 remove my mudflaps as well :D just keep forgetting!!!

    Cheers,
