    wagg1n - finally with pics - soon to be bagged, 20s n interior retrim

    It's taken long enough but i finally got my hands on a digi cam so i thought i'd get some pics so you can tell us what you think

    i finally got my car back last week with a new engine i haven't had it since january coz of a big dispute with holden over the warranty and how much i owed to get it replaced but all is now good.

    Tha bonus is that while waiting i've been saving hard so i have a whole bunch of stuff ready to go on it now. so i thought that i would take a bunch of photos of my car as i go along.

    I can't show any photos till tomorrow coz at the moment it's gettin lowered, gettin an exhaust and extractors put on, gettin new wheels and gettin vz ss indicators installed on her but i'll chuck down whats bein done to it and get some photos tomorrow when i get it back.

    altezza tail lights
    body kit

    interior mods:
    painted dash surround and rear ac vents
    footwell neons

    alpine cda-9835 HU
    alpine type R 6.5" splits front

    2x12" alpine type R 1500w subs
    alpine v12 amp 4x125rms- speakers
    alpine v12 amp 1x1000rms- subs


    Over the next 6 months its goin to DW customs in dandenong to have airbag suspension fitted to it, and i'm gettin 20's and full interior retrimmed so it should look pretty damn hot then. I just gotta get settled into my new job and i'll start coz i can ride a pushie to work.

    These pics are from just before the respray, all the sanding and prep was done and I had to send it to the sprayer. I didn't end up goin the pearl paint and i'm regrettin it now...

    This is my ride as it looks at the moment, the interior is pulled to bits and the sub install is only a temp one coz it's gonna get moved around to fit the tank for the bags, but it does the job for now... i'll try and get some nicer pics when its all polished up and not raining soon.

    i got 18" XHP sabres got em for a grand from ttf in dandy. They were just closing and he said if i paid cash i could have em coz they had tonnes in stock and they were gonna be tryin to get rid of em soon anyways.
    That was without tyres but i used to work at the falken tyres distributor in springvale so the boss sent me somewhere good $420 for 2 new rear tyres and 2 second hand fronts but with 80% tread. I'll upgrade one day
