    So the wheels had gutter rash really bad so I removed the over hang, then putty them up then sanded then painted all 5 wheels then painted rotors and calipers then took all 5 wheels got them balanced. Now they are on my car. Had to roll around on my vc sle rims for a while YUK.

    Yes l think you did a good job too.
    They look better than those sle's.
    I noticed you painted your calipers, did you rebuild the brakes too. I also liked
    GM decal on the caliper.
    Good job all round.

    Brakes and wheels look great.
    Always liked the cosmo colour .
    Like the purple colour in seats but covers will help keep them in good nick.
    I love the look of my maloo seats and they're in good condition because previous owner and myself have used seat covers and taken them off regularly and cleaned.
    When I do I usually go for a month or two with no seat covers because I love the seats but then I think I need to put covers back on to help keep them in good nick .

    Thanks for the replies, I had to drive around with those sle rims on while I worked on the other set. it was great to get them off I tell you LOL :) Yeah I shampooed the seats and then when they dried put the covers on. it was just a bit too purple for my taste. Yeah you know me Lex the brakes got a good work over and even regrease that pivot pin and readjusted the hand brake while I was doing the job :) dropped the old fluid cleaned out the lines and then bleed them too :)

    id take the side V6 badges off
    love how u painted the rims, great work
    are they those black ebay rear velour seat covers from ebay?
    the stereo aux cord i drilled a hole under the garnish and tucked it away into the dash then it comes up next to my seat belt buckle
    something that looks incredible are black leather door inserts, i managed to get 3 looking for a drivers side

    Yup a very nice Purple :) I love it :)

    Yeah got the switch in just got the relay and wiring up to do on the foggies :)

    Dunno the chicks down at my SCA know me very well and grabbed them for me I think its a size thing they go by, just say for a vy and they will sort you out.

    ebay for leather inserts.

    I go fe2 on mine and then wrecking my Vt which has heaps of good parts kyb front struts pedders springs all round e.t.c.

    Thanks for the heads up on the gumtree, don't use gumtree much for second hand parts as you sometimes get lemons.

    Yeah I have a really great person that helps me with a few things with this car, hench the debadging :)

    Ah cheers about the plates bugger I will look into that one Thanks for the Hottip :)

    Before anyone gets the wrong idea I'm a female :)

    hoping youre a millionare or something cos soooooo much going into a silly car that next week a random granny could sweetly drive into a write it all off

    anyways none of my business

    noticed your stereo cords and wanted to show you how to hide them away.... drilled a hole underneath the fasia and got a super long extension so that the phone cord comes up next to the seat belt buckle...

    Nope not a millionaire don't need to be one when I do ALL the work myself so no over heads of someone else's labour. Just wise with money and finding good deals if you look in the box you will notice the top bearing and front bush easy add up to $500 from the shops so all the rest is basically FREE..... Its not a silly car that's your opinion. it will be a safe car that's gets me from a to b and drives nicely as well :) Darn your a negative person... what the heck have I done to you... anyhow don't matter I feel so good right now as I just got my leather hsv inserts :) :)

    Thanks for the idea of hiding that cord away. I might grab a new deck soon so not fussed about it for now :)

    Haha all good devily :) just overwhelming how much your splashing around, each to their own i guess. remember you might spend $10,000 on it but will only ever sell for $3000 if sold it tomorrow

    keeping a list of how much your spending

    im the same, have spent $2500 on it since august and bought it for $3300, couldnt sell it for more than $3000 tomorrow i reckon

    Just got offered a price $100 bucks for 2 front leather door inserts... rip off!!!

    A guy selling chrome door handles for 200... another rip off
