It has a pod filter, which I just changed.
I don't know if I want a full body kit or not, side skirts and rear 1/4's, does anyone have photos of a ute with full body kit?
will be looking at new paint in orange i think.
and some mags, does anyone have any photos of some deep dish mags that are either black or red in the centre?
thanks

Good value @ $2500.
Cam, extractors, exhaust. Will liven it up a bit and give it a nice note, manual conversion or 3.9/4.11 diff gears for the auto.
Lower it, springs up front, reset the leaf sprung rear end and/or add lowering blocks.
Tint, rims.

Good starting point there IMO.

Get a low km AU engine and do a conversion and then do the exhaust and so on
