Looks awesome mate, I'm glad you finally got one. Are you planning on keeping the canopy? Also IMO lose the bonnet protector haha

Can't wait to see what you do with this one and throw some more pics up!

VE 2012 Heron SS Thunder Ute M6
Welcome brother! when I bought mine in 2012 was always taken with the white,also liked the black as they both had the best match with the charcoal rims imo..no black available so hooked up with the white..looks real good bud,like the idea of the black rims change..powdercoat/clear coat them,gloss or matte look,whats the plan? I've been thinking about plasti-dipping mine matte black.Just a thought as another option..

The bonnet protector,not sure about it but they are made in black too I believe,would look alright if you like the idea of that piece of kit..or maybe your ditching it altogether lol.

Anyways,will look sweet as with a bit of low and is gonna sound awesome when you give it the loud treatment,enjoy..ill keep an eye on your mods mate..

When I first got it I didn't like the canopy, but after driving it home and looking at it it's starting to grow on me and doesn't look quite bad, will look better once lowered though haha, but at the moment I'm just happy to be driving it :)

I'm thinking I'll just go a cat back First just to get some noise then go a full exhaust later on cause it's just to quite ATM haha, went to look at a vz Maloo and came home with this, Maloo was nice but not as nice as this haha

Yeah that's cool man, I have seen a chlorophyll ute with a canopy that was absolutely slammed and thought it looked pretty cool.

Fair enough, I just put straight pipes in the back of mine and I think it sounds good for a low cost, I will eventually get a full exhaust and that when the funds allow. Trying to save for a house sucks haha

Yeah VZ maloo's are nice but no where near as good as a VE IMO

Yeah I think its loud enough to hear anyway, can hear it with the windows down until abut 3k rpm when the engine noise takes over, as you'll notice in your stock ute. Has a nice back crackle to it and I get a lot of compliments on it, but it wouldn't be as good as a full system of course, just affordable for a nice bit of noise.

I think I have a little video on my phone, I'll see if I can upload it to photobucket and paste the link here. I really need to take a proper one haha
