    you always can get them trimmed, its a good seat to start with for $49 for all,

    i do have NOS red SL-X passenger side front and rear door trim but SL-X has different trim to SL-Es

    Hey Griezy, once the car is at the panel beater I’ll have a much better idea of how hard they’ll be to remove.

    My guts is telling me I’ll have to do a bit of chopping to get them off

    The clock trip display housing is broken. This one looks better but who knows how good the LED's are: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/vh-comm...m=282870071853&_trksid=p2047675.c100009.m1982

    Also just a point of clarification this is a clock / trip computer display unit, the actual computer is an aluminium box that sits up under the dash out of sight. The computer is fed data from the speedo, fuel gauge and fuel flow meter to calculate the various metrics, these are then displayed on the dash.

    so just a little update - cars booked in for panel and paint work for the 26th of this month. This just gives me enough time to get my parts delivered before then.

    Next step is to try and find some wheels... I cant seem to find the Irmschers anywhere, and I'm also conscious of the budget blowing out!

    $480 he is dreaming..... the computers rarely fail, it's the transducers that seldom work and are hard to find (in good order) almost impossible NOS.

    Big new Irmschers from ebay or most HDT store located in Smeaton Grange.

    Old original 15" forget about it if trying to keep to a budget...maybe luck out down the track although I've been looking for more common 15" Aero wheels for ages no luck or too expensive compared to new versions.

    hey guys, looking for a bit of help, can anyone tell me which rear spoiler this is? I can't place it.

    Before anyone gets mad - yes I pulled the pic from carsales, I love the look of it. I am unashamedly trying to replicate it.
