Cheers guys, yea the ute will be getting lowered soon after the tray goes on .And in a year or so ill be getting a T series front bumper , boss bonnet and ba pursuit side skirts. Cheers ash, the rocker cover was a spur of the moment thing, it only took me about 2 hours including drying time. i think it looks good 2, your definately right about the amount of backyard mods to do, thats why i like it so much. The au's definately dont get as much credit as they deserve.

Yeah that rocker cover looks awesome. Rims are good too, will look great once lowered.

Not sure if it is just the lighting, but if you want the tail lights shinier get some wet and dry (think I used about 800 in the past) and using it wet sand back, then do a gloss clear coat over the top. You might wanna do another coat of tint before sanding it back though to compensate for the sanding.
