    Looks really nice...I'm not a big fan of chromies...but each to their own. The colour is mad with the tinted back lights. Is it just me or is the space for the head unit in like VLs and VKs too big or cut up too much so that the deck is either sitting crooked or has ugly gaps there...But apart from that...cant fault the car...

    i doubt you'll get any bad comments, probably only those out of jealousy


    I wish my VL was that smooth.

    whats the 'bad decisions' thing?

    lol the bad decisions was mainly with my sound gear. And taking the car to the wrong ppl to get things fixed, sh*t like that.

    The headunit looks crooked n all that coz when it was put in my dash was still half apart from doin the 5speed conversion :D its alot better now but.

    Yeh im stickin with these wheels for a while, They look really good when the car is rollin :). I wanted to get sum custom plates but i dont have the $$$$ atm. Im gunna get BIGDAZ in yellow :D :p

    I got some hail dents in the bonnet, and the bonnet doesnt sit straight anyway so im either gunna get it fixed or get a new bonnet.

    Once i jam a V8 in it theres not much more i wanna do. I dont know if i wanna work the V8 or buy maybe a newer car and work that motor. Or even leave this as a standard engine n 5 speed and just buy another car already with a V8 in it. Basically still undecided as to what i wanna do with it. cant beat that 308 sound, i want it :)

    i had a calais front on it but i got put off work and needed money so i sold it. i think i have sum old piks with the calais front on i'll dig them up. didnt look that good it was grey and the eyelids didnt line up right :( If they were straight and blu it woulda looked hot as hell. Might buy some down the track. After i have a V8 :p

    Looks good. I'm not a fan of chrome but you've pulled it off nicely.
