    Hi Guys, I've been browsing this forum for quite a while but I am only posting now as yesterday I receive my VZ Thunder with Sandman Canopy conversion. (No flaming, I know it's not a real Sandman)

    Its got the six speed manual with Harrop short shift kit and VX GTS 19" wheels both done through Holden.

    Of course it needs to be lowered and get the exhaust done (sounds like some weird WRX at the moment ). The stock 18's mad the car look like it was on stilts (sat way too high) however the 19" seem to have bridged the gap a bit.

    More pix to follow as more work gets done.

    So I got it lowered with Lovell Super Lows, pix on the weekend I hope.

    Done mostly city driving and get about 400km to a tank of 98 RON so it's only 50km less than my VT V6 :)

    looks good, the wheels look good to. i do prefer the original 18's though they look good. but 19's are better.

    So here's what it looks like lowered, also some interior pix, although the interior is a bit dirty. Hope I haven't gone too overboard with the pix, 56k beware :yeah:

    And this is a trial fit of the rear infill panel, this will get painted this week and hopefully be on next weekend, they aren't the greatest of fitting parts...Thanks SS Reductions.
