Hi all,

Just got my car back from the panel shop and thought id post up some pics of the pursuit ute lip I got fitted onto my XR8. (thanks to Frank from Pymble prestige smash)

I will be doing a paint correction on it tomorrow to get rid of the hazing on the bonnet and some minor swirls and scratches on the rest of the car.
Will also be giving the exterior trims a hit with Matt's(Dream Machines) 3 step trim dream application. All this will be done with by machine polisher.

I will try get some pics along the way and post them up.

:D

I'm in the minority..... sorry!

You are the only bloke that really needs to like it tho, so it doesn't really matter what I think......

I am just a bit of a fan of the standard XR8 front end on the AU II's and III's.

i like the lip.. but i think it makes the side skirts look a tad underdone from that angle... but otherwise looks great from front on...

Hi all,
got around to doing an exterior detail on the paint and trims today even with this terrible weather.
Here are some pics I managed to get along the way.

looks good, but i'd add some mesh or something to front, looks a little unfinished, just my humble op :) otherwise it's sitting pretty.

looks great with the mesh mate! but i think you need to look at side skirts to suite the front, they seem a little small.. maybe a hawk grill too?
