thanks ive already read it though, i was more looking at things that are hard, cheap and unique.

i want to do something unique to the car, engine, exterior, interior, whatever, any ideas?

Ride: Falcon EB-s

Location: Manjimup
WA, Australia

Engine:
Super charger, turbo, custom rocker cover (hard due to shape, but possible), custom shields and panels to hide things (have to make sure they dont trap heat or cause other problems)

Exterior:
Shave door handles and replace with solenoids, custom bonnet, custom guards, anything really. Not sure how it would look, but you could rip off the door moulds and delete the fold in the door or something? Would need to be replaced with something to make it look decent, maybe two tone paint or a full custom paint job

Interior: Retrim, paint panels, custom panel for extra gauges, custom door panels, stereo install

And i suppose you could do a few things in the boot like a false floor or custom fibreglass work. Trouble is, nothing much to do with cars is cheap, unless you know how to do the work yourself. So take your pick :D

Oh yeah, forgot to mention custom bumpers and things like that. I also believe some commodore side skirts may be the same length as falcon ones? Might be vn - vs wagon or something oddball like that?

Mate you wont do much for $300-$600, i would recommend some quality oil, filters (fuel, oil air), and some new plugs and leads to keep her running, and may be buy some car wash, good quality polish, interior protectant and tyre black......now go and use it all on your car......she will be running better and looking sweet!!!!!!!!! :D

If you got any cash left, put half a tank of fuel in it so you can cruise...... :P
