A short while ago I posted asking for help because I'm stupid when it comes to writing eBay ad's. I asked for opinions you tore me apart, now I just want to thank the guys that commented, you have inspired a young Holden enthusiast to pull his finger out.

Since posting that ad I have been inspired to complete my car:
The supercharger is now off and being rebuilt.
The intercooler, blow-off valve, and piping is all being organised.
I'm sending [the ???] into the shop to have wiring and a couple minor leaks fixed.
I've removed the clutch fan and will be running twin thermos.
I'm dropping off my spare interior for a custom re-trim.
I'm fitting all new suspension bushes, and a larger brake kit.

So in the next few weeks when it's all done I'll post some pictures so those of you that pointed out all my faults can now praise what a young guy can do

I'm also changing my wheels again, from some 20 inch copy-cat thing, and I'd like to hear what you guys think. I'm thinking some 20 inch wire wheels with white walls on a VQ statesman should look good?

Any other opinions on mods for a supercharged V8 while I'm excited about working on it?




i would like to thank danja very much i am going to use it with pride .
THANK YOU

You obviously didn't take any notice of all who told you to use sentences and paragraphs. Even on here, it is very hard to read what you are trying to say.
Tell me, when you talk to someone, do you say everything you have to say in one breath or do you actually stop and breath occassionally? What I am saying here is, think about what you are about to write and write is as you would say it in a conversation. If you write well, people will be more likely to read it and then offer some advice.

Ross is simply saying that without proper punctuation and sentences posts are a bitch to read, Which almost always ends up in people skipping over them without reading them.

Mate

If you post on this forum seeking help and advice, the least you can do is make your post intelligible (ie easy to understand). Yours are not. They are difficult to read and more difficult to comprehend, especially when you omit all punctuation and use words like "no" instead of "know". As said above, people look at your post, read about two lines and think "stuff this", then go to the next thread.

Well, seeing as you asked nicely, something like this would probably cop less flak next time.

Stay away from 20's, they are a waste of money when it's time to change tyres, they make the car less comfortable for you and your passengers, and they often look ****.
