Well, long time wanderer and new to Holdens.

Had 2 Fords before this beast and i must say, I love my sexy beast.

Bought it back in mid december 2011, Bascially only changes i made to it was i put on some VE SS Badges to match theme and also tow bar
I have to admit, I havent done much to this car like my previous cars. Mainly as its already at a state which i like it.

Only thing i have done recently is some minor servicing and stereo system fix ups and fascia fix.

Couple issues, front right has a camber issue at 2.0 degrees and so will need to be looked at as to why and 4 poin camber kit to be installed.

The top two pics are from the previous owner had sent me before the sale went ahead.

Sweet, shes up.

Fixed a few things on car, also in original post, some things left out accidently.
Purchase price also included delivery from Forster to Hornsby which wasnt bad as well.
Previous owner though said car was his pride and joy. Too bad he didnt treat it that way.

Front Fascia is scratched (have a spare new one ready to go, but wanna clear coat it first)
Speakers were dodgy
Top rear window mould missing, replaced and redone for $50

1 key only and car had to be manually opened and by key only as remote not working and buttonless.
So bought a new shell, replaced battery and presto. Working again. Also got a spare from Mr Minit.






Fixed left side speakers on car.
Originally when got car only rear right would work. Checked wiring behind headunit and was mangled and left speakers were not even wired up so fixed that up.
Then i had the whole right side working but left side no. Occasionally the left front worked so knew something was up.

Took off door trim last night (easier then i thought) and front left speaker was absolutely mangled, replaced with a old Ford speaker which even the wiring connectors fit. Virtually same speaker. Sweet.
Took off rear left, speaker damaged as well and not even plugged in because terminal on speaker broken.

First thing, Change your altezza naro tail lights to genuine.
and also you wrote calais garnaish, thats just a standard vx garnish.
Other than that.
Wowee, thats a really nice car.

Couple things to be done soon.

Orders a hidden discreet aerial to replace the one that is on the car which will go under the headlining.
Also will be painting the calipers Gold to match the overall style. If i dont like it, will be covered up by fresh silver caliper paint (have it lying around)

Cheers and updated.
Thought long and hard bout changing the rear lights, even genuine with Nightshades and other ideas but decided for now to keep em as i reckon the genuine look dated and old.
Each to their own. Took a while but they grew on me and to me suits the lip spoiler nicely with the dark colour of the car.

Thought of VX SS Genuine spoiler, Manta spoiler, thought of no spoiler either with different combos of tailights and garnish. In the end its basically staying as it is for now.

Money/costs etc and to be honest quite happy as it is atmo.

Top two pics were of when car was not in my hands, its been detailed since i had it by my own hands as per garage pictures. Will probably do it again within next month or so.

Just bought this for $13.37 and free postage
5M 500cm Flexible DC 12V LED 3528 SMD 600 Leds Warm White Strip Light Lamp

One thing i dont like bout my car, lack of lighting inside. Previous car had footwell lights and the plans are this

Tapped into the Interior Light circuit
Discreet Footwell Light inside cabin at the front.
Discreet lighting for rear centre console inside pocket.
Possible discreet cup holder.
Maybe glove box.

In Boot
Along the inside of boot to improve lack of lighting.

Will all be done discreetly and only to improve interior lighting.
