    That's looking sick Ryder. I think try the black first because you don't want it like every other Calais. And if it looks **** then fk it 2 tone that bad boy.

    So clean dude well done.

    Edit: also even just putting the factory chrome strip back on around the bumpers and all might break it up nicely?

    cheers

    well at very minimum its needs to come down like another inch + at the rear. im going to grab a few rolls of super cheap auto electrical tape from the garage and put it where im thinking of doing the black and see what it looks like before i pull the trigger.

    the problem with the chrome is id have to use a chrome tape down the doors which looks ****...

    chucked a newer set of coil packs and ignition module (think out of a vx) on it as well as a new set of leads. running heaps better....

    also sanded and cleaned off all the corrosion under the module and its mounting plate, misted with a light sheen of wd40...

    unfortunately the only thing i can do to finance the ls calais project is to find a new home for the cali car... its getting roadworthy and reg soon, after that its up for grabs to which ever p plater pulls out their wallet first....
