Loose the stickers on the exterior, all of them. Grab a nice set of rims (not a necessity as the steelies look ok), repaint the bumpers, fix the boot lid and dont pop the bonnet in daylight hours and alls sweet imo. By the way that two tone effect would look absolutely awsome if the grey was a couple of shades lighter. I remember seeing a monza red XF with light grey lower panels in a mag years ago. Looked a million bucks. I may still have the mag at home. Ill have a look for it and post some pics if I can find it.

8-) bad taste cops, exactly what I was thinking, they probably had a chat amongst themselves and said, "Sarge, I'm gonna have to do this kid a favour and tell him to take that Antonov 225 inspired wing off. Looks s**t."
"Station to car 57, Constable Whitehead, over."
"Constable Whitehead here over."
"Yeah that's an affirmative, the whole friggin station agrees with ya too, doesn't suit the car. Intercept the Falcon and get him to remove that thing!"
"Yeah roger that, Whitehead out." Lights on, siren sounds, and the wing is history LOL :P

Back to the thread.. That is a BOSS looking Falcon Dre.
Very mean and aggressive looking just like that. It has the look and it says, I'm gonna f**k you right up!
So it's hard to say replace the rims, as the steelies look superb, so I say, have some fun with the setup you have now. And I concur with the above, try and return the interior to near stock, that model interior looked good stock anyway. And maybe some color coding of some of the exterior plastics.
Looks good now though, can only get better. 8-)

g'day cobber

leave the 2tone it's ace keep the steelies but paint em black and do the crome rims and centers (oldschool) ditch the aqua and code the engine black to match the 2tone with red highlights. same for the cluster red dials and black surrounds. and colour code the handles.

now I'm thinkin about 2 toning the barge time to do some photoshoping
are your vent's functional. mine droped the underhood temps heaps. but the windsor and paces will make a lot more heat than your 6.

my car was actually parked outside my house when they told me to remove it, came up to my front door and told me to remove in 3 days or they will send the car over the pits, reason why is they are cracking down from the today tonight episode about wings and lowering etc.

thanks for all the replies guys, i think the steelies suit it but wouldnt mind getting some nice rims later on down the track, and get rid of the 2tone

cheers

chris

I'd start by getting the genuine ED XR6 indicators. Your car is unroadworthy due to having no parkers :)

The car looks hot. Love the 2 tone and love the steel rims.

Dont like the blue in the engine bay much... maybe red would look better?

- Colour code the door handles and every where else that might need colour coding :p
- Get rid of badges & stickers from around the car
- Throw some BA XR or GT 17"s on there. Spacers might be needed
- Clear side indicators
- Nice 35% or 20% tint
- A nice 3" or 4" drop tip to set its a*** off
Thats you're exterior done
Polish it and you'll be laughing :) Well thats what i think.

Edit: Just using this as an example. This is Jet-ED's car. Only one i could find on the net. Soz :(

You serially need to fix those bumpers asap. You also really need a new boot. Maybe do the clear indicator mod on the back tail lights... if thats still cool of course :)
