Haha maybe not... I just went nuts in photoshop.


But it got me thinking about the front bar... in the pic i just streched it so it hung lower (see gallery for origional) anyway i was wondering... i want somthing subtle but somthing that hangs lower than the origional... it would be great if it was as easy as streching the bar like in photoshop. Everything for the au seems to be over the top s**t (read: Hawk i belive) my car is not a f**k spaceship as to wich i do not want it emulating one...

My next choice would be an TS50 kit... ( i love this kit but without the power to back up the looks i dont thnk so...)

is there anything out there that is in the right direction for the au's?

also i want to get rid if the red pinstrip... but i was also thinking can the gap be filled with body filler and painted (front and rear)... aswell as remove the door strips to give a smother look...


Anyway just a few thoughts... comments and sugestions would be great :)


dont get me wrong that looks unreal, but the first thing that i thought of when i saw the roof was a (bracing my self for a serious flaming) monaro

Have you considered the factory kits? awcinfo.com sell them, i just ordered one last week the same as this fairmont ghia:

should look a bit better than stock and it wasn't too expensive either.

That chop looks great, i reckon it will be hard to remove the side moulds due to the big locating holes they'll leave. That car would look good with the series 3 indicators.

$660.00 unpainted. I got mine with free shipping though.

220 for side skirts, 176 for front lip and 264 for rear skirt. Should look mad painted in regency. The only thing is, the rear skirt wouldn't fit your car because its a series 1 and they have different bumpers. You could probably get a cheap rear bar but.
