Hey mate what about getting chrome buttons for your shifter and handbrake.
Maybe the chrome spokes for the steering wheel too.
Get the crack fixed.
Give it a good polish and wax.
Remove trolley strips.
Get rid of the executive badge.
Instead of getting a full exhaust done, how about just about getting the tip done.
Eventually lower it, nice rims, remove spoiler, all done. You will have a very schmick car by the end.
mmm howmuch u rekon i could pick up a chrome shifter, handbrake and spokes for? (searching ebay in a sec hahahah)
yeh im gonna fix the scratches then respray time for console.
yeh dads showing me how to wax and polish it next weekend
i just finished debadging it, ill load pics up soon

hey guys just finished debadging (except lions ofcourse lol)
i might upload pics of it, maybe when i have waxed and polished.

all i did was quickly go over with hair dryer, then put some goo-of spray on for 5 min, then used fluorocarbon fishing line to remove badges, then alot of picking to get glue off hahaha took a while but worth it, then quickly went over with wet towl.

If your confident enough to spray your dash, you should be able to spray the rest too. It's the exact same process. IMO the satin chrome parts are extremely overpriced for a small cosmetic mod. I'd only buy them if my current ones had a crack or were unrepairable.

Here's some links for you anyway:
Handbrake and shifter
Wheel Spokes
Door Handles

ok make thanks, yeh good idea

mmm i have done a fair bit of spray painting, just not with plastic surfaces, i guess the only difference will be the primer, im gonna paint it gloss black, i wanna do something different like a stripe or something.

although i will need to replace the top button or wateva on the shifter as it always pops out cause its crack on the bottom of it.

im guessing those parts wouldnt be that hard to replace?
i think i have seen some to do's on here anyways so i think im gonna be covered. If anything was gonna be difficult it would be the steering wheel spokes.

Do a D car mockup, there's still a few VY's getting around so it's still not too late.
