Yeah aye,
Hong Kong s**t just phucks out in about two months or so.
I want to get pure white SMDLEDs, so it looks like winter in my car.
I want everything in white SMDLEDs.
BA9s Reverse Polarity globes for the two map lights, the two interior lights and the glove box,
4 SMDLED (as in four lights per globe) for the courtesy lamps, two foot well lights, two reading lights and auto selector. Then 2x 5 SMDLED T10s for parkers.

I've already got a White 8 SMDLED interior festoon one.

So winter is nearly on its way.... I'll be getting them off Futuraclassic, he does a good job.

Cheers,

Yea mate soo truu! you'll be lucky to even recieve them in 2 months!
Ah yea, the winter theme would actually suit your car well!
futuraclassic is great :)
Call me crazy, but for some wierd reason i like the stock incandescent dome globes. I guess i like how they blend in with the gold theme.
Id love to get some warm white smdleds though

Most of the SMDLEDs are pure white, aye.
My ones are all pure white, none of that blue crap.
It looks like winter!

So good! deffinately gonna keep you cool over summer then.. lol

Anyway, just thought id pop up some pics and a vid seeing as schools over for the year and now i have time to do s**t to it!
My next mod will probably be the dash with the woodgrain and the custom facia, maybe a few extra lights here and there...
Image
Image
Its a crude aftermarket exhaust system, let me know what you think about it by the way.
Anyway i think it has a moderate oil leak from around the head gasket/timing chain cover reigon but have yet to confirm it with a professional. (looks like someone has tried to fix it with blue silicon :/)
Smoke from the exhaust isn't a good sign either...

Sounds and looks mean, mate.
Progress is always good.

I've been a bit lax on my car as of late... thinking of what I could do next.
Still hunting wheels too... haha

Cheers man!
It is :)

Ah yea, you don't want to spend too much $$ on her. Iv got lots of ideas for mine, just don't no how to go about em:
+ id love a dual circular tail light set up, like a skyline but built into the existing tail lights.
+ Illuminating door sills like in my mate's mustang
+ have the parkers come on with central locking/dome lights (like Audi's do)
and more, which I can't think about right now. Hopefully they don't make my car gay..
Keep looking mate, you'll deffinately find a good set eventually.

This here is my 1997 EL Fairmont Ghia, currently being used as the family barge... We baugh her around september last year to replace our ever faithful... camira. So, to us, it was a big jump.
From the documentation that came with the car, I saw it had been owned by many a car ethusiast. (reciepts for Bendix Brake pads, K&N Filters, exhaust, suspension, etc.) It is also originally from NSW and sadly has a bit of hail dentage here and there. But its hardly noticable from a distance.
Anyway, she came with many goodies such as: Pedders sports ryder springs, shocks, caster and camber kit , Extractors (hi tech or hurricane), mild exhaust (2 1/4 cat back, rear mufler removed. gives a nice note but very loud) and EL GTs (fakeys). Also a factory sunroof :)
Here are a few pics of the beast.

When we first got her. :D
Image
Before she was raised (luckily i kept the springs :))
Image
After; 1 inch higher

The Heart
Image
Luxury

Since we've had her, I've done a few mods here and there:
Nice Black Plates
Image
Shift Kit!!!
Image
Premo Head unit AUX
Image
Door Handle Lights
Image
NL cornering Lamps
Image
And some new chrome strips Just to freshen things up
Image

Heres a few fotes with her older bro sadly leaving us soon :(
Image
My favourite
Image

still have a few mods in mind so stay posted.
P.S: sorry for all the photos. You know how it is, too many to choose from...

It firms up the gear changes for nice crisp shifts. At zero there is little difference, whereas at full bal its like dumping a cluch! If you're lucky you can get a chirp from the tyres :)
