I think the wheels are the only thing on it that I really like :P haha. Door trims with the courtesy lights are nice but mine are in better condition I think.
Yeah I'm hoping I can clean it up, fix the brakes and then sell it off. It'll be a bit of a learning experience I guess...mostly in the don't-buy-stupid-things-off-eBay area.

the footwells, camera doesn't do much justice, you can see passengers is brighter, i'm happy.
also, left the yellow globes for a lil extra, nice tone to it. lol.


Thats a pretty handbag you have there. How much does that cost you each week to satisfy?

Im loving what you're doing to your car mate! The footwell lights look great, so do the led strips under the door. I didn't even know those chrome strips existed. I might have to invest in a set.

How did you go with the chrome strips in the door moulds btw?

Keep up the good work :)

Nice idea with the chrome Fairlane window trims, Teeroy 8-)

Looks pretty trick, might have to borrow that one for my EF if I come across a set. It's always the small subtle mods that make a great difference in the end :)

Just a bit of an update, picked up sone pedders sports ryder shock with some superlows today so i'm keen to chuck them in, although gonna wait til i come across some for the front most likely, saves looking like a tool. So anyone with a word on some supers or some shocks, let me know.

cheers mate, yeah it's a nice subtle mod, affordable and neat, which tend to be my favourite.


thought i'd throw a concern/discovery in, went for a cruise friday night and whilst we were on some back roads out past the airport, decided to give it a bit seeing as we had the freedom, my mate noticed that with my shift kit on, as it slaps into gears, it throws sparks out underneath.
nothing i'm too worried about although incase your weary of your autobox as it is, i'd be careful, i'm gonna lay off it for a bit, never need to really give her any anyway so yeah.

might have a suss with the new suspension on the rear tomorrow, hopefully, still on the hunt for some front.
anyone know what the difference will be if i just swap the standard shocks over to the pedders?

s**t, nothing new lately so forgot to check this thread.
yeah still searching for a front setup, looking like buying brand new now, and shocks will come at a later time, the rear is all that is in need to replace desperately.

getting things lined up for summer, got the power steering leak fixed up today, $150 later. -_-
but it saves soo many people driveways, lol.
