very nice. its also got BF tail lights on it. why ruin it with those cheap nasty supercheap altezzas that melt after a month and fill with water.

needs to be lower :) (as does my BA XR6 :( )


I think the tail lights should be black as well!! lol. I don't know, I might change my mind but if i get them and don't like them or they melt then I'll still have the ones that are in it now to put back in. My dad's mate's XR8 has the chrome ones the same as the ones I want and he doesn't seem to have a problem with them but until they're in the car there's nothing definite. Unless of course I win the lotto or something then it's happy days hahaha

it's nothing special, just more sentimental lol, I'm swapping the plates from the celica witht he ones on the falcon. The ones on the falcon now remind me of my lesbian friend hahaha and my celica was brought partly with money I got from my nan so it's like my way of keeping a part of it :)

I just cleaned my back window with wheel cleaner by accident dammit! I'm pretty sure I've f**k the tint because it keeps crystalising on the tint like it's salt or something. I've tried warm soapy water and glass cleaner but I can't get it off. Sad Day :cry:

I tried that and it didn't work, I'm thinking what seems like crystalising might be the tint being killed because I wipe it off and then it comes back again, basically immediately.

Someone told me metho and another person said vinegar but I'm a bit hesitant to try, guess if it's already f**k can't really hurt!

could possibly try wax and grease remover but im not sure if it will damage the tint or not.

I'd say it is stuffed, but all is not lost. It is pretty cheap to replace and you can even remove the old tint yourself if you want to save some coin. Here are the instructions if you wanna have a go
http://www.tintcenter.com/articles/bt_removal.html
If you want it done properly, I'd see Altapac at Kotara. I have been using these guys to tint all my cars, work and personal, since I could drive (over 20 years :oops: ) and they have never dissapointed with their price and quality of work. They should be able to match the tint you have and at a guess it would probably only set you back about $150-$200, you could even go accross the road to Westfield, or check out the homemaker centre for a little retail therapy while you wait :mrgreen:
To give you an idea, I had all of the old tint in my fairlane removed and replaced with top quality metal film, took them 6 hours :shock: and it only cost me $350

Good luck.
Cheers,
Mick

thanks for that, I'll have to look into it, couldn't of happened at a worse time though, we just brought a house so now basically have no lives hahaha. Oh well, lesson learnt and it'll get fixed eventually, hopefully sooner then later but it doesn't affect the vision out the back and you can only really notice it from the inside so I'll just have to live with it for awhile.
