I bought the car purely because of the colour, and at the time I had no idea of the difference between all of the BA models save the V8's. I am in love with this car, regardless of its many many MANY faults... that came with age and some very VERY fat owner before me.

Side - STOCK

I don't have a rear photo, but it was STOCK as well.

I bought chrome grille, corner lamps, got the black bars on the doors sprayed, fixed up some dints that were done during all this process... I don't have any photo's of the work inbetween STOCK and CURRENT. Due to terrible weather in Melbourne I've given up cleaning my car.

CURRENTLY HOW DA CAR B LUKIN

I am looking at lowering it a little bit and getting new tyres/rims. I'll update when I get that done, or anything else. I am considering getting my Interior done, Half XR6, HALF Fairmont Ghia.

Thanks man! I love the metallic colour!!! It changes and hardly shows the dirt... the car pictures of what it looks like now had it TINGED badly with dirt/mud... doesn't show very much except patches... TAKE THAT SILVER!

Is your car that XR ute? Love the Xr6 in Acid Rush!!!!!! Although, now similar :P

Yep, well it's an XLS not an XR but apart from the body kit it's not really any different... I've pretty much put a full Fairmont Ghia interior in it with a Dual zone ICC and FG FPV cloth seats. Had BA XR leather in it for a while but i dont really like the leather... Looks nice but gets hot in summer and cold in winter.. New seats are pretty nice. I was going to do the Fairmont grill like yours but went with the Fairlane grill instead... Bit extra pimp factor. :D

PIMPED OUT RIDE TO THE MAXXXX.

Yeah, basically that's my idea for the interior... but I've got cream bottom section... annoying, nice to look at but eradicated any darker coloured seats and door trim at the risk of making the rest of the car look s**t... and changing everything is too much hahahahaha.

How much for the Dual Zone ICC and FG Cloth? I was looking at FG Xr6 cloth seats, but again... dark.... maybe have to go cream leather... and wash my trim and plastic parts, they're looking dirty.

People expect my exhaust to make more noise, but it's just a tip for now, 50 bucks install, it's a lot better than the PENIS that sat there beforehand (stock exhaust).

We're proud owners :D

After gaining a massive headache for trying to check your picture, I have concluded that I'm now jealous... I really want that s**t done to mine, after getting a Towbar, interior is my next step... Dash mostly... unless I find really nice cream seats...

How much the ICC set you back? and the Steeringwheel (I need to update my one, it's looking s**t... only half the horn bit works, I'm afraid that if the airbag comes out the central section will slam into my face instead of collapsing down/up.

HAHAHA yeah you dont want that, I got the wheel a few yrs back for about $200 brand new. Actually was just watching one the other day on ebay which was brand new for $250, almost bought it as a spare. The black/grey MOMO doesn't come up often and most of the second hand ones are worn on the grey part.

As for the ICC think i paid $350 for it, but i spent another couple $100 getting it all how i wanted it plus get it programmed to my car was about $500 all up i guess... It's not a full Dual Zone conversion.. I've had the HIM reprogrammed so it just works the same as the single zone did. The cluster, clock and ICC are all chrystal white looks pretty nice at night. I tried to get some night shots but the old shakey hands wouldn't let me... HA

Seats cost me about $100 bucks... I retrimmed my XLS seats with FG FPV cloth covers... Not a straight swap but if you can use a sewing machine it's pretty easy to do. Basic shape is the same, just how they attach to the frame at the back is different...
And sorry about the headache!!! :D

I forgive your upside down photo! Hahahahaha I like that wheel, I like the idea of a creamy interior just to throw things around a bit, on another topic of yours I was informed of the G6 seats, a car I forgot completely about! Be hard to find however! ICC system will be just a replacement (I don’t understand what you mean by PROGRAMMED – what happens if it’s not programmed?)

100 dollars to retrim? Nice, I’ll search around for something similar, I’ll work it out… I’d like to change the colour of my seats that I have, but I don’t know if that’s possible really, don’t know much about whatever the trade is that specialises in whatever it is that changes fabric colours… HAHAHAHA sorry for being a n00b there man, I just know exterior styles… I’m a know it all with Exterior areas, but interior… should look into that more often.


I wouldn’t mind the Ripcurl Xr6 seats… waterproof… I’ve dropped plenty of s**t on my seats before while trying to drive and quench my thirst… so that’ll be interesting :P


I found out through a friend tonight (Who owns a Holden VT EWWW haha)that I have a huge leak coming from either my power steering box or “MAIN COIL” whatever that is… time to prioritize towards my engine compartment.

Sorry for the s**t load of nonsensical writing, I don’t do FORMAL very well.
