Hi guys, i have been floating around here for a while reading up on everyone's amazing projects, and thought i might get started on my own build. My car-- 99 series 1 AU fairmont sedan. previous mods, lowered, pod filter, extractrors, high flow cat, roof mount screen and in dash dvd player. first up i thought i might go for a body kit and a quick respray. i will upload pics as soon as i find out how to decrease the file size to 500 KiB. Unless someone out there can tell me how to upload pics here, would be much appreciated.

well took the au out tonight for a quick spin and pick up some essentials. come back from the shop to find someone has kindly shared the paint off their car with the right hand rear quarter of my car. so once again its out with the hammer and dolly and sandpaper and beat and respray the freshly painted rear quarter :evil:

Looks good mate...even for an AU lol :lol: . Some people have no respect for other peoples cars. When I had my black EB I reckon that became a target and everybody was generous with their paint :evil:

thanks guys, nothing better than recieving positive comments from fellow car nuts lol. will start on the repair of the rear quarter tonight. then remove the front and rear bars to properly fit grill mesh, and some bar lights. hopefully during that time i will be able to source a fairmont ghia leather interior.
