nice set of rims, 18s i presume? hp design or whatver there called! tempe tyre special in sydney?

get yourself an xr cluster would be your best bet, check our datamines thread about making your own faces and play around and make some of your own with the design of the ba's im sure u can come up with something quite interesting and diferent!

there 19s but dont look it for some reason. should have got 20s. yeah shipped them here from tempes for about three. gotta lower it again but have no cash. not sure how to go about it either cause they dont make much lower springs so i may have to compress them. got any other ideas how to cause i dont want to chop nothing.

Superlows are MUCH MUCH lower then that! should see Brads Fairmont! my god! the 15s sit inside almost..

You do realise bigger wheel u have, slower take off you will get as well :P and that you speedo could be a bit out too so beware of that! check it out sometime just incase.

I had 17s, just got 18s and they weigh a tonne (orig ford rims)... doubt id evre go bigger!

my mates got ss lows and there a bit lower but i want mine tucking rim. yeah its killed the take off and the speedo is out bout ten k but it was worth it cause they look sweet. i do regret not getting 20s but. might just get them compressed. whats done to your ride cause it looks pretty sweet at the moment. is it on the gas cause im debating something with a mate about where your air intake is hooked up to.

yeah fuzion has got LPG. It is an impco system. If i remember rightly it was the exact same setup as what i had in mine wasn't it? but yeah i got rid of it. I would reccomend going SUPER LOWS as it is much more lower and looks awsome, check out my gallery and you will see how low. I will try and take a new shot in the next few days :wink:

You cant do it, the feed to the cluster is way different the cost of converting signals means it is just not worth the effort.

electronically, anything's possible bro. I'm a 4th year electrical engineer and even I wouldn't want to be d**k around with that kind of swapover! You've gotta consider that the BA panel won't just click in like a el, or even au, it's entirely different. (believe me I looked, my Mum's got a BA)

Basically, I suppose it's possible, but a f**k of a job. If you get it done, that would command respect my friend!!
