Well, smashed my ED. So I bought this.

96 EF2 sedan in white.

Few mods.

Engine / Drivetrain:
Wade 977b
Ported and polished head
BBM port matched to head
JMM extractors
2.5" high flow cat
2.5" mandrel bent, single muffler exhaust
Dual dump tips
K&N panel filter
BA XR6T snorkel
Modified airbox with extra ducting etc
Top Gun 8.8mm leads
Manual conversion with braced pedal box and firewall
Exedy HD clutch
Short shifter
Manual ECU

Suspension:
King Lows all round
Pedders Sports Ryder shocks
Monroe GT Gas struts
Whiteline swaybar
Nolathane bushes
Camber kit

Exterior:
AU repeaters
B pillars painted black
Tinted windows
BA XR8 18 off my ED

Interior:
EL XR front seats
AUIII Momo
AU Momo leather gear knob
Black leather gear boot
Chrome handles from the ED
6" Response Splits
Kenwood 6x9's
12" Kicker sub
Coustic 4ch amp
MTX monoblock
Pioneer head unit
XR6 cluster
XR6 clock
Fairmont Ghia leather console lid


Plans for it are not a lot at this stage. Swap all the springs and front struts from my ED in, HID's, 3.9's or something in the diff, trip computer, completely change the sound system setup, new clutch cable, EBC Green / DBA slotted, bigger rims, leather interior. Just want it to look good, be relatively quick, and be comfortable.

Anyways, here's a couple of s**t pics from my phone.

I'll get better and more pics soon.

I kinda like the black strip. Simple and clean. Not a lot is going to change on the exterior. Just bigger rims and lower.

Damn. The 18s look huge and it looks slammed as already.

Looks real clean, but the indicators look f***ing strange like that. Proper clear ones that fit the mould can be bought.

It's only on King Low's. My housemate who is a fair hefty man was sitting in the back at the time hence why it looks so low.

I know about the clear ones but I don't like them anyway. These look good in person. Might change it at some stage down the track, but not likely. Thanks for the comment.

I thought it was private9's. I'm mates with JoshL, who was one of the previous owners of it. It's certainly been around in the few months since he got rid of it! Firstly purped, then Justin, now you!

Me and a few of the blokes did most of the work mechanical work on that car. A part from a few things... 90% of the mechanical work was done while the car was in my hands. Anything u may wanna know... just pm me mate :)

I had a lot of fun in that car... but decisions get made... good and bad... life goes on and blah blah.

Have fun mate,

Josh L

Update:

Got the brakes done as they were f**k. DBA slotted and EBC Greenstuff. Also repainted bits of the dash, rewired the sound system and...

Got defected. Copper was just being a prick because he didn't like my mate yelling abuse at him out the window. So he pulled me over and went over the car. EPA'd me, and he reckoned it was too low. I reckon its not and he faked the measurement (he made me and my mate sit in the car so I didn't see whether it hit or not). Still a pain in the a*** though.
