Yes the boot liner will be moulded to neaten it all up. The reasoning behind it is the that space isn't used and the tv along with the dvd player and digital tv tuner will mean that me and my mates wont have an excuse to miss something on tv or have to squeeze into the cabin to watch it

You need to re-route the cable down the boot hinge so it looks neater.

I like what you've done. Though not keen on the bonnet scoop. But to each their own.

Please explain..


Yeah that was me mate, lol. And if there was a screen in the boot when I was there it would be severely wrecked by my feet as I basically beat teh s**t out of the boot when I lost it in there.

When my boot rattles, it does a damn good job of it since that day, hehe.

O memories, lol.

And my opinions are....

Lose scoop and lose ugly el gli front if possible. Whoever the tool was that did the EL gli front bonne, headlights, grill and bumper bar, really deserves a slap on the back of the head. How they could go from something so tight, attractive, agressive, and a more quality feel (EF gli baby) to that is really beyond me.

My Latest idea for my car is a scale replica of my car. I started with a Tony Longhurst EL Castrol V8 supercar and modified the rear spoiler and added a bonnet scoop. I am going to paint the car in the same paint as the car and I am going to be doing all the little details like the lights and the stickers to make it as close to the real thing as possible. Here is a dodgey pic of the model as it sits atm. Its painted is some blue paint I had laying around to get an idea of what it could look like.

Ok today I got one light ready for bog and fibre glass. Also you can now get an idea of the finished product. Oh and some of you may notice that I changed the indictor lenses and added the clear reverse lenses. I am still undecided as to what paint finish I will use. I will be dyeing the reflector red once I am done with all the other work.

Anyways here is a pic:

Just a quick update:

One of my tyres burst and 2 were cracking on the side walls and so far I have had 2 replaced, so atm the car is riding on 19's on the front and 15 inch csa alloys on the rear. I also purchased 2 pioneer 2 channel amps from 1800reverse which will be fitted to the boot as soon as they arrive, but wont be wired up until the upgraded wiring kit arrives. I also purchased 2 white snake decals that will be put on the car either on the front quater panels or around the the pioneer sticker on the door.

Then today I purchased an ef/el fairmont grey leather and velour seats which I have already strrated fitting. When I get ahold of the right bit for the front sit bolts the rest of the seats will be fitted

On a bad note it will be another 2 weeks before the other 2 19's will be back on the car and by then I may have some super low king spring ready to be fitted as well as the ultra lows are starting to become a pain in the a***

Whats the deal with the tyres, are they cheap eBay jobs? Or is it common for this problem with 19's?

The seat are now in. yay

They are modified elgt side skirts. as far as I can tell they are a mix of plastic, fibreglass and carbon fibre.

As for the tyres, they were fullrun which are cheap. On my car though I am going to have a problem with the side walls no matter how expensive the tyre is due to the ammount camber I am running to clear the guards.
