Twin passanger side air bags - should be in the interior mods forum :P


Exactly!

Actually, I had 'scoops' on the brain, and let my wife's twin scoops (of mouthwatering flesh) slip thru' the net...

Sorry guys...

The scoop definently deserves credit for trying something new...im a symetrical man so not really my thing but looks good none the less


Hey Kev,

I got my Venom kit thru' The Spoiler Shop here in Perth, but they still had to order the kit from some crowd in Adelaide.

It was approx. $3500.00 painted & fitted ...not cheap!

Good to have you back, Bob!

Where were you yesterday, when the "Hyenas" were at my throat? Hehe

By the way, I changed my steering wheel, it all went AOK until I reassembled everything ...and found my horn now doesn't work!

But not the horn that matters ...hehe

Seriously tho', looks like I'll have to take friggin' airbag off again & check some plug connections..

What about something like this that sits more flush with the bonnet but still lets air through

By the way, have added some interior shots as well, of new steering wheel, shift kit etc

And a picture of your wife's rack I see! :lol:


That scoop is interesting Hyena!

Looks like an old XT GT style...

Well, I can honestly say that of all the mods I've done so far, the Venom kit & the adjustable shift kit have been the most outstanding.

The shift kit rocks, it has really freed up my car in the acceleration/response dept, and the Venom definitely turns a few heads from Holden & Ford drivers alike!

I suppose the fact that I'm one of 4 Venom kit drivers in the whole of WA doesn't hurt either...

lol i was off roaming the south of the state in a nice BA 'Mont Ghia! :P

hmm - sounds like you may have forgotten to reconnect the horn plugs maybe? :? either way its an easy job 2nd time around - the wheel is loose so it won't need as much force - lol i've pulled mine off far too many times to count now!

but on the body kit: doesn't look too bad - i like the venom side skirts very much! just need a nice intercooler for the front bar now hehe

as for the scoop - interesting - i'd prefer to see it up close before i pass comment - any idea on the cost just to cut the scoop in? i'm interested in getting a scoop cut into my bonnet...

Scoop (painted & fitted) & bonnet hole were approx. $250.00 at The Spoiler Shop, U4/70 Norma Rd, Myaree. Ph 9317 1988, speak to Tristen.

As for the scoop, at least you guys will recognise me if we pass on the roads ...I'm the one-nostril man!

hmmm - well wasn't 110% over the phone with them - they were pretty vauge about cutting where the XR scoops usually sit, and talked about glueing my scoop onto the bonnet, which won't be happening! :?

might go down for a chat, but the job needs to be perfect for me to be happy with it!

Hmmm, might be worth heading down there ...maybe speak to Greg instead, because Tristen is a bit vague!

You could also try The Spoiler Factory (can't remember details, but they have a website), or suss out the Yellow Pages, Quokka or AutoTrader for custom bodywork people.
