g'day all
my name's rod ive seen the light after owning a vp commodore now i own a 92 eb gliII with a 4ltr and 4spd auto
i got this car a 2 month's ago for $800 it was dead stock
since owning her i have installed a h/u, removed grill badge, painted rocker cover and airbox. ive also changed the shift knob and painted the center console.

at the moment im building a custom boot install to house my 1300w 12" sony explode sub and 250w 2 channel sony amp and a pioneer 600w 4 channel i have. i have pioneer 260w 6x9's that ive decided to put in the boot beause speaker boxes are ugly so i need to get 6'5 speakers for the parcel shelf.
i have r33 bucket seats that i need to put in and x-flow extractor's that ive been told the port's match up just need bolt holes redrilled.
plan's are:
mag's either 16 or 17" with decent rubber
tint
clear side and front corner indicator's
lowered
cat back
xr6 bobtail spoiler
sprint front bar
respray maybe svo style
ef door trim's (thank's for the great idea guy's)
sport's wheel
and a lot of detailing.
its not going to happen overnite as im pretty straped and mostly diy so thank's to the guy's posting up there work

Hey

Nice car to start with.

I like the rocker cover. The red on the black is very striking.

That is a wicked buy for $800! Looks nice and tidy. The clear front indicator lenses do wonders for the frontends of EA's-ED's. Now for some clear AU side repeaters! Check out the technical documents.

By the way, where did you score those front seats? What are they out of?

theres an auIII up the road with a cannon i dont think the toss pot deserves clear side repeators :twisted:
im trying to keep the exterior clean and stock looking as mods that a p plater shouldn't have will be under the bonnet
the seats are r33 skyline items a mate was going to throw them to the tip because the rails were welded up.
i got em freeby and made adaptors to use the ford rails they have 350 marked on them so that must be the wreckers price
