Don't know about Torries, these are bolt on, he did holes already but you must paint underneath them first, before you put them on, once the final paint is on they won't be coming off.. pics below were taken 3 months ago, he had to dummy fit them first, it will look tuff

Painted this console black, original was like the one on the right, I saw on eBay these go for good money. Just getting small things done here and there, looking into ordering a new carpet and roof lining.

Hi guys, when I bought the car the centre console was missing and dash was horrible, there is a slim chance of finding originally vc HDT interior, and I did I would have to sell a kidney for it, I've managed to buy both stock parts but in different colours , I've cleaned them up, plastic primer, base in white and finally that HDT interior colour. it's impossible to find that colour so $55 bucks a can had to be, the results speak for themselves..

Thanks mate ! yes I did watch few videos with those guys, considering they do that for a living I am going well myself here hehe The only thing I didn't like is those 19 inch reproduction of original wheels, I prefer old school 15 wheels with wide tyres, also they went Ls, I prefer 253/ 308 with a carburettor , old school smell and noise, today 3 Rd layer of paint, getting there
