Hey thanks for the comments guys, I'm working on getting up a few more pics hehe. LM8185, thanks mate, i fitted the start button myself, i wrote up a how-to so now anyone interested can have a look and do it if they choose!

Thanks heaps mischa, i didn't forget who took it, just to make a mention! :wax: lol yeah mischa has taken heaps of great photos on our cruises :thumbsup:

Anyway, here's an interior pic from before i got new front seats and put the start button in, but i like it anyway:



And here's another one i like, taken my beautiful gf Mandy:



And this is the closest i have to an engine bay pic atm, it seems like every time it's worthy of a proper photo i'm too rushed to take one!



Although i do have a photo of the engine cover after i painted it! I used VHT (i think) plate finish chrome. I used a plastic primer first up and let it sit for 10 mins to get tacky, then did 3 or 4 coats of the plate finish. I stuffed it up the first time (accidentally touched it while it was still drying) so re-did it. This is how it came up:



Hopfully that keeps ya going for a little while! :thumbsup:

Theyre the ones seen on the VZ SSZ sedan, ute, thunder ute, and monaro CV8Z. They're 18"s, immaculate condition, no scratches marks or anything... around 85% tread all round, nankang NS-II's. Really well looked after, had them for about 4 months. Selling cause i'm "upgrading" :whistling lol. I think i paid $1700, but looking for about $1200. Anyone interested?

Cheers guys

hey guys bit of an update, wheels are sold lol (to my gf haha) which is fair enough i guess hehe.

Anyways i'll be getting the LSD rebuilt really soon, just wanted to know whether i should go for 3.45's or stick with the stock 3.08 ratio. I do a fair bit of cruising but isnt my daily. What do you guys think?

Cheers for all opinions :thumbsup:

little update...

I'll be getting a new starter motor fitted soon + getting a/c compressor bearings fixed... also she's rollin on stockers atm hehe. Trying to work out if the 19's i've got sitting in the back room will actually fit my car haha. If i work out for sure that they will fit i'll be getting the lip machined (big hint) and then slap some rubber on them :yeah:.

Pics soon
