Quick update on my car...

What's been done:
- Destickered Front Guards, and rear window sticker to make it cleaner
- Premium Brakes
- Interior's 1/2 re-done, T-Series door trims, including leather are on
- Re-wiried power windows and added rear power windows
- 17" Spare Wheel
- Purchased genuine T-Series Bob-Spoiler

What's going to happen next:
- Going to cruize heaps, as my car's been in pieces for a fair while... Then
- Maybe purchase Tickford head, and slowly gather parts needed for a Head & Cam upgrade. And some other small performance upgrades (leads, plugs, shiftkit, fuel system upgrades, more intake work, tuning)
- More interior upgrades... I need to fix some blemishes on the door trims, and am looking at a couple of sets of leather seats. White dials, and some custom burgandy leather, and hopefully SVO pedals
- Sound system upgrades & alarm system upgrades
- Possibly Bodykit
- Suspension changes. Remove king lows from rear, and put in heavy duty king lows, and possibly superlows in front. Replace rubber bushes.

Stuff for sale:
- AUIII Brakes - $200
- EF Airbox Lid - $30
- Manual Window Winders - $1
- EOI: AUIII Seats & Backseat - $500

Sorry about the pics:

(I have a higher resolution shot of this, because some people have pm'd me about a good side on picture, for photoshops of the chile's. So either use this one, or i can email you a better one)
(Clearly needs to be lowered more :( )

Schmicko! Looks nice, very clean and tidy, and the mags suit quite well. Nice choice of head unit as well ;)

f**k immaculate dude.
I am impressed.

The rims suit the car to a "T"

How much is it lowered at the moment?
The handbrake and gearshifter .... what model was that from??? (I wanna get something similar in black though)
That's the steering wheel I want as well.

I am going to get around to de-stickering the ute soon ... and changing the AU badge for a BA one as well.

How hard was it to hook up the higher-spec cluster as well????

Is that a grey or black interior? I thought all au3's came in black only.

But otherwise very nice!

Thanks guys, appreciate it.

It's got King Low's in it at the moment. With a full tank and a bit of random stuff in the boot, she sits real nice.

They are from a Fairmont Ghia/Fairlane. My interior is actually black or Warm Charcoal, just the light has made it a lighter black.

Fairly easy. The hard and costly part was VDO fixing some broken parts in the Cluster, and putting in and programming the new eprom to put the right kms on. Then a new loom had to be made up for the XR Cluster

As Glenn said, they're Advanti Chile's 18x8, with Hankook rubber.

Hay LG I managed to get a cluster off ebay $200 gonna be fun wiring it in. Iv found out ford can change the erpom (well so my bro says as he works there). Hopefully it works all find and I don't end up fixing stuff to haha.

Also with your brakes what is the 'main' difference between them and standard.. i mean they are still twin piston aint they?

Your paint work seems in overly good condition not a mark on it!

Thanks, and goodluck with the cluster. The whole brake upgrade, i have upgraded to a larger slotted 330mm disc up the front, and the same size but slotted rear disc.
