Yeah I didn't really think of that.

Yours are old enough to just tell them to shut up or they go to bed hungry :lol:

I may do an exhaust video. Just have to wait as the missus took it to work.

Thanks to all for the kind words.

I managed to snap a few pictures just now of the new ride height. The pics are a bit dark as the light is fading, the leftovers from the cyclone up north are heading in and its starting to look a bit stormy. I love the way the colour looks when the sunlight hits it.

The car is dusty but you get the idea. I thought I'd also snap a photo of the family bus while outside. Its an AU1 XR6 VCT.

Looks mint dude, the detail work you do on your cars must be pretty thorough, the finish looks amazing!

Like the way the EL sits of FTR's at that height mate, that's awesome 8-)

Its not good enough yet, I'm going to attack it with the polisher again tommorow. There are some water marks and etchings on the top I want gone. May try some Megs Medium cut cleaner, otherwise its on to some of the really harsh stuff.

So far its just had the normal treatment. Clay bar, compund/polish and wax/sealant. Once you have it there you just need to re-apply your wax/sealant often and keep it clean and it looks great.

You should give the EF the same treatment. Heritage Green really pops when its all freshened up, the NF really did in the sun.

I haven't done anything on the AU yet, I'm planning the same process. It doesn't need much though as we have had it for years so it hasn't been neglected. Its always clean and out of the sun. The Dynamic White is awesome, you can't look at it on a sunny day :lol:

It does look ok on the FTRs too. A set of 18s would just transform it though.

Yeah man, heritage green looks mint once it's given a bit of a detail. Last time I detailed it all I did was clay barred, Meguiars Color-X and then topped off with Mequiars Deep Crystal wax and it turned out mint. But that was back in July last year, and it's maybe been washed 4 times since then if lucky :lol:

Would look hot on 18's dude, do it!! :mrgreen:
