have seen quite a few new sets springing up here and there on members cars but not with cars that have rear wings... looks allright.. although makes the rest of the car look undone... :idea: -now for more mods... :lol:

PS.. the globes you get with the lights are crap.. they shine orangey red.. get the replacement brake light globes from K-mart for $2.00... they shine brighter and much more red... :wink:

I know i need mods bad. Will be getting Fairmont side moulds colour coded, wheels. And in the future XR kit and a slightly lower. And yeh i read ya post about the lights that come with it but mine dont seem to be that bad. They shine brighter then my standard taillights did. Where did u get your lights from?

omg it looks the same as everyone else that posts up a pic of their clear taillights, and they still look gay and are not ADR compliant.
try losing your mudflaps and getting some rims, you need clear side indicators to match the rears, and window tinting would help.
my vote is debadge the rear. falcon badges look homo.

Do you post anything even vaguely constructive? When you buy a car that a man should be driving, you can put s**t other guys, seriously mate, get some friends or something, surely you must have something better to do with your time.



Daggy.... Looks sweet as mate! Don't worry about what soulfire said, as usualy he's talking out his a***, in your case anyway, not sure about Victoria, but in NSW and QLD they are legal. Here's a link to the information booklet regarding what you can and can't do to your car. Tailights are not even mentioned.

Doesn't mention tailights, as long as your brake and tail lights are red, your indicators are orange and they have reflectors, which your ones do, your should be right mate. The only time guys get done for this sort of stuff is when you get pulled over something else, so be sensible, and even if they are illegal (I'm 99% sure they aren't though) you'll be right.

LOL ive never listened to a word he has said... his car looks like ne other soarer ive seen to so i dont much notice to him. They are the slightly tinted taillights but the photo is in the sun. Also soulfire im in the process of doin stuff 2 it. I havnt got the money 2 do everything at once. Im buying wheels next week so atleast im starting. I took the mudflaps off yesterday but put them back on cause paint is missing under them. Wen i have time they will get taken off and patched up. So everything u said didnt help me at all... and to the ppl who are decent thanks 4 ya comments :D

Meh, I have sideskirts and a front lip here for my car, just haven't gotten around to fitting them.
It's just you lot crack me up because so many people call jap cars with clear taillights rice, then congratulate people for putting clear taillights on their falcons - leaves me a little confused.

Yeh, the paint damage underneath the mudflaps is a pain in the a**, my mont and xr had the same problem, just attacked it with touchup paint lol - but clear side indicators will definitely match up the look a bit.

Gotta love it how he's an a**hole until some people tell him where to go, then he turns into mr nice guy....



At any rate, I have altezzas on my AU, and I think they really enhance the look of any car.


Good to hear you're not stopping there daggy, the car will look awesome when you're done with it!

I dont think taillights on jap cars are rice at all. If makes ya car look diff and u like it good luck 2 u. I have a tube of touch up paint my mate made up 4 me at his workshop and he just told me 2 use that. And where can i get the side repeaters from?

good stuff, i personally like the clear taillights, but i prefer them without a wing but each to their own. good luck with your future mods, look forward to seeing what you do with it.
