Looks nice.

You might wnat to consider enclosing that pod.....it will only be sucking hot air in the way it is. Check out site sponsor Mace for the enclosed set up. I have one in mine.

Are you sure those rims are Monaro ? Look like VT GTS to me.

Damn, that's real nice n seriously tidy, love the engine bay on that :D The red on it looks spot on!

I think that a tint on the tail lights would look better though, not a fan of the clear ones like that to be honest, but I think if done to match the body color more they'd look ace!

Nice clean Ute mate! Love the colour (same as mine) but not overly keen on the tail lights or pod.

Dark tint, monaro sports bar in the tray and a hard lid and that thing would look awesome. Keep up the good work!

thanks for all the comments fellas :)
yeahh im not a fan of the clear taillights either, i sprayed them with night shades a couple of days ago so they blend into the paint now. Also have a single chrome dump pipe fitted. Will have some more photos up hopefully tomorow. Yeah hardlid will definetly be coming soon. Im thinking about getting it airbrushed with lighting aswell to match under the hood. what do you guys think?
