Any updates Bilko


Yea mate, as you know the speakers are now in..havent changed the RCAs yet though or moved the wiring to get rid of the feedback noise!

@thepistonhead im gonna try sort the problem out sometime today cos it cant be too good if my brake lights dont show up all the time! as i remember before my front pads were changed it was quite sensitive and they would come on easily!

@kwikxr cheers mate, the photos definately make it look better...really need to get the body in better shape but cant see much of the damage in the photos hehe.

first plan of attack is manual conversion..cant stand the auto!
i want to atleast have tint and maybe exhaust/lowered before the cruise at the end of the month!

Definatly get short shocks, and you don't need to buy new springs, grab some second hand ones for a lot cheaper if you see some for sale, they'll do fine.

also update as of installing the speakers..

R.I.P passenger side kick panel and drivers side door lock =S
both my fault Kenay didnt break either! =]

will hopefully this weekend get all my wiring problems fixed!
want to change where im running the power as i know i want to go manual now so will need that hole later on!

so if anyone has a passenger side kick panel in the grey/blue colour they could sell me that would be great! and that little piece of the door lock that goes into the button and hooks onto the actuator.
but im sure it'll just be easier to hit up the wreckers! =]
i also got a ba intake last week forgot to mention, but i believe i need an extra bit of piping from airbox so that it will reach??

i will plan on getting shorter shocks but im now just wondering whether i go super or ultra low. i plan on keeping the mont stockies for awhile atleast until i get cash for the bf typhoon wheels i want!
i cant remember but is it illegal to use spacers/adapters??

i think this is all i need to talk about for now! =]

Spacers aren't illegal (i think)

I've been pulled over by cops and they've checked my wheels plenty of times. pretty bald sometimes and i have a good set of spacers and its never been a hassle

Mine were $300-$400 but i got them with the BA XR6s all up for $200 not bad :lol:

Only issue is you can't get a road worthy if you have spacers on but i don't think you get a defect for them either

Ahh..you got yours from AK yea?
know where he got them from? cos im starting to think maybe it'll be easier to get spacers and just the au onwards wheels as opposed to finding e series offset!

EDIT: something i forgot to mention. when my climate control is turned 'OFF' and im driving around..i still get warm-ish air coming through the face vents? whats up with that.
i really need to replace my A/C comp aswell..cos its F**k!

alright soo..noticed today that either someone has backed into my a**. or kicked my rear bumper!

as theres now a crack in a spot and there was mud around it.
no matter what happened im kinda p****d off =[

i had plans of getting a different kit for it anyway - something like what effalcon had before his current kit? which im hoping people on here could help me with as im not exactly sure what it all was??
prices would also be helpful...i think i have someone that can paint it for me also.

thanks!
