keep up the good work.

Cheers guys. Interior is fairly patchy at the moment. But it's so flippin hard finding time whilst doing year 12 at the same time. Expecially with the subjects Im doing.

I've already fibreglassed the screen bracket into the centre console. Very simply though. I don't mind how it turned out. It'd be too much of a fiddly job trying to get it looking really pro so I reckon I'm just gonna leave it more or less as it is. I don't mind how it turned out. Not bad for a one day job I reckon.

And the boot install after one day I'm pretty proud of as well :D Carpeting is going to be a b**ch. I got some nice velour black... I like black I guess :twisted: ...

I'm not emo

Dark tint is a must... I LOVE gunmetal Falcons as well... thus I own one. Bonnet paint is starting to fade though :(

Call me an idiot, but, what are clear repeaters? I could just google it and find out for myself but I've gotta go to work :( :( :(
