    It's done a fair few k's (over 150 000) but it is a one owner vehicle with full service history and hasn't been modified in any way (yet!). It doesn't look like much at the moment but hopefully that will change with a different front bar, rims and lowered.

    Just did my first mod to this car.... alloy faced pedals. A small mod i know but its only the beginning. Took me about 2 mins to do the clutch and brake pedal... a lot longer to do the accelerator, damn roll pins they are my enemy. I ended up just yanking the old pedal off (its still 100% intact) and hammering it out then using a split pin to put the new pedal on. Pics up tomorrow maybe.

    Yeah it was owned by a Bosch rep so they are mostly country K's driving from dealer to dealer... i picked it up for the right price too $16200 so I'm pretty stoked with it. :dance:

    Yeah i live in the country so black wasn't my first choice. One of my mates has a black VYII S pack and the only time i've seen it clean is when he pulled out of the carwash.... :whistling

    hmmmmmmmm maybe... I really don't mind the badges and I'm leaning towards just a VZ clubby front bar. Not fussed about the cluster but i'll probably be doing a blue dash conversion.

    Looks clean n tidy, are they the standard exhaust tips for the SV8's? looks aftermarket :)

    before you do anything! get rid of mr turtle sitting on your engine...

    Maybe take the mud flaps off... unless you like them that is :whistling

    I'm not sure about the tips i do believe they are the standard ones that came with the car?

    Yeah Mr Turtle is coming off too, planning on buying a plain white two-piece cover and airbrushing it. Not sure about the mud flaps as i live in the country, I'll see how dirty it gets.

    I went to put a mate's 19's on it today and realised they didn't give me the locknut key when they sold me the car :bang:

    Ok just an update on the red stocker... shes got the turtle shell cover off, rocking a new red two-piece 'LS1' cover. Also have an X-Force 2 1/2 inch cat-back with hot dogs in the shed and Pacemaker 4-into-1's on the way... will probably have them on in 2 weeks. Then it will be sound system install, some body work and a tune before christmas.
