    I agree with Lowndes8, those original wheels don't look good in my humble opinion.

    I finally sold them shitty looking advanti rims which put a little coin in my pocket

    Picked up some 1 3/4" pacemaker 4>1's for $300 in very good condition. Will eventually get them HPC coated and bolted on.

    So with the house renovations almost over the nightmares almost over. Splashed out on a new set of big bores for the blue beast. With my mate from pedders we trying to work out a date we can get her in and front to back rebush everything and some new front struts. Also got a few things to order for the ute aswell :)

    So just when everything starts to smooth out and i have a little money to spend on the ute, life throws a spanner in the works :(

    [​IMG]

    So had to shell out to get it recified, but knowing myself i didnt just want to replace the strut tops. If you looked at the car prior it had a massive front rake. The springs in the front were and ultra low on the factory fe2 struts and the rears were super low. Horrible

    In goes pair of sports ryder struts and the matching springs so car now sits nice and level, new strut top and bearings and bump stops.

    Mentioned him before but big shout out to Paul at pedders modbury. Gave me the courtesy call to say inner control arm bushes were ****ed. He changed them aswell before was wheel aligned. Top bloke

    Next up saving for a twin 3" and get my extractors ceramic coated.

    Such a tidy daily drive man. Love it. I wish my VZ Clubsport rims were as nice as yours, mine are really badly rashed from the previous owner, but it's kind of a low priority to get them fixed.

    Got my extractors back from coating. Tossing up whether a twin 3" or 2.5" catback. Want a nice note but nothing that will render me getting a yellow sticker. Also needing to get some 200cpsi cats aswell.

    On a positive note my house is finally tennated, so next month or so hopefully can get back into the ute and fingers crossed can get it finished by years end.

    I am a patient man :)

    So got a twin 2.5" mild steel xforce catback with rear hotdog section. Ordered some 200 cell outlaw cats aswell which should be here soon. Just need some flanges and some mandrel bends to make the cat piping.

    Also picked up a new power steering resi to tidy up the bay and removed all the sub and amp ****.

    So a little bit has happened to both rigs, but more so this slut.

    Removed this horrible hackback of an exhaust, in exchange for this.

    Just like her older sister some suede and chrome interior door handles. Wanna get some suede door trims aswell to complete the look.

    Rear end suspenions all done. Cradle, camber kit, links and diff bush etc. Feels and rides fantastic as it should. Wouldnt mind coilovers in the later future.

    New slugs and some MSD Street Fire leads. #### job replacing the plugs lol

    Some blue led interior switches. Looking at getting the cluster done soonish. Looks abit odd being the only green luminous item in the cab lol

    Hoping to get it tuned next week if tuner can squeeze me in.

    Ute gets some love aswell but ill leave that for a later post
