Location: morayfield

bought the car from blackers10 just over a month ago as a stock KF laser apart from the added tint

stock 1.6L carbie
5 speed manual
small stereo (kenwood headunit, VDO/Dayton splits, 2x 12" JVC subs)
16" unknown brand/model wheels but i bought them from a mate many years ago
TX3 bumpers and wing

short story:
i wasnt happy with the look of the bumpers, the rear was stock grey and the front was painted with cheap $2 paint (one coat), so while i was picking up a set of headlights from a TX3 i decided to grab the front and rear bumpers aswell as the 3 piece wing, the front bar needed some fiberglas on the inside but nothing major, the rear went on without a problem. the wing however, i never recieved ANY brackets for it which i wasnt impressed about at all!! so i had to pop up to bunnings and pick up some alluminum angle to make some brackets myself which has worked a treat.

was sick of looking at the factory rear panel so i removed it and painted it white and and painted the laser badge in cherry red, replaced the ford badge (since i have a draw full of new badges) and put it back on, however it did get damaged in transport but i will fix this in time)

once i fitted the bumpers the side mould strips looked out of place so i spent about 3 hours removing them and the goo left behind. i will be painting the small thin black strip that was on the side red to match the bumpers and replacing them back on the doors

it still needs a good cut and polish to get rid of all the greasy fingerprints and after the other days dust storm it needs a good wash

mods still to come
re-tint the windows as the current tint is DIY stuff from supercheap (does the job tho)
replace the exhaust (the center muffler has split open at the top)
upgrade the stereo system a little (mainly rear speakers)
airfilter upgrade
