I have an AUII XR6 Ute and want to make it a bit of a tribute to Tickford motorsport.

I have a few rough ideas, but I want this to finish at a show level. So any suggestions or others that have do similar?

Thanks

I feel stupid, I didn't actually think about that. And now that you mention it... Would look really good. Cept I have leather seats... Hmmm... Re-do leather in colours or fabric with emblems embroodied?

Well the AU is sort of regarded as a dud in the falcon range, and as the last tickford car of the for range... I thought it would be cool to do up the ute in a black/white/red design as a bit of a tribute for tickford.. Show off my ford.

Tickford wings embossed on the roof :)

I had an "06 BA RTV, and now have the AUII XR6 ute. Having had both, I would say the BA was more reliable but it lacked the feeling of excitement the au brings out in me.

I still have the tickford badges that came with the car. I'm thinking a custom cluster layout with more prominent tickford style, embossed wings in the roof (taking out the light/sunglasses holder), full red/black/white interior/exterior colour scheme, and maybe big set of tickford wings on the rear window.
Plus later on a few badges in the tray when I get it customized for speakers/storage/etc. Want to get it semi set up for luxurious camping sort of thing. In built storage for a few things and enough room to lay out a double swag for sleeping in when I go to Bathurst :D
