i think you would have saved boot space by mounting the box forward against the seat

OK!!! Nice job.

Did you have any issues? Does it leak at all? Did you have to mod any part of it to fit?

This time you can be the teacher LOL

The springs will physically fit, but the front V8 springs will be stiffer and the car will sit higher as they were designed for the weight of the V8 engine.

The rear springs are the same.

well time for another update... i installed the sub box today and my god what a difference it makes. the bass is deeper and more tumpier then it was with the free to air setup. im very pleased with how it has turned out. only 1 small leak but isnt effecting the sub at all by the sounds of it.

as you can see it hardly uses any space at all. i will attach a white LED light or something simlar to the front to use for boot lighting. as the factory light is rather s**t lol.
this is the view from standing upright holding camera near face. you can hardly see it at all.

i also finished (well apart from a lil touchup) the rockercover, i ended up googling tribal flames and came across this design which i changed to suit. took about 2 hours of careful cutting to get the flames but i think it came out rather good. im thinking i might throw this rockercover on the NC and buy another AU cover ($6) and do another design but in red, or use the Tickford cover i have, put on the new design all the way up, as its almost smooth all the way up apart from the text. i do have an EF cover here thats smooth all over but it has a rough finish at the moment and i cant be stuffed sanding it.

Cool idea, but i think metal has to be stripped and perfectly clean to be able to dip it, i could be wrong, but i thought the metal has to be pretty pure.

Would look phat as f**k though.

well yet another update for tonight lol. only a small one, i had 67RCE contact me saying he had an XR front spoiler for 40 bucks, i thought it would be a dodgy one needing repair for that price, but went to pick it up tonight and its genuine plastic one... it has had repair but looks to be done propper so im not fussed, it was primed ready for paint. so 10 minutes after i got home it looked like this....

yeah i am, but im not overly fussed about it at the moment. i was almost going to spray paint it quickly so it didnt look soo out of place, but i think ill just pop down to wacol wreckers again soon and pick up another boot carpet in the same colour and cut it up and glue it on so it looks factory lol
