haha yeah hama i googled the color plus s pac to see what other people where doing to there's and yours popped up and i'm like heyyyyyy that what i wanna do!!!
if you where selling yours this would be on ebay in a second.
but then again there's no fun in buying a car pre modfied, more fun to get your hands dirty, stand back with a cold beer and go i did that :beer chug:

i might have to shoot you a few question about you lpg setup if that's alright im thinking of going vapor, i got the tank and im gonna spend the money i get from the sale of vr as well plus the gov rebate

@ pete cheers mate little things dont worry me hopefully i can keep her neat and clean which didnt happen on the drive down empty coke bottles and lolly packets every where haha

No stress mate, hit me up with a PM if you need a hand/advice/info for anything mate.

P.S. Car needs lowering bud ;) Get a set of WH Grange 18's on it, set it off ;)

Looks a clean car as well man, keep it nice and clean and street original ;)

480? Sweet.. seems ill be getting a pretty sweet deal through a work mates connection then :)

I was thinking of going 15% all round, but not to sure coz I still want to be able to see out fairly decent at night still and especially when I have to drive at night out in the country where there is no street lights. How is the 18% for ya at night?
