Hi all, Im new here.

Just wanted to show you my XHII XR 8 ute. I've had it for 5 years now. Things Ive had done:

* Respray
* BA bulge
* FPV wheels
* SS cold air intake
* Lowered on Koni shocks
* 3 inch exhaust with pacemaker heads, magnaflow cats and redback muffler.

I have a lot of plans for the ute, as always its an ongoing build. Hope you like it.
More pics soon

Thanks, its just a metallic navy blue

The scoop in the bulge is more for looks than anything. Quite a few people are putting the bulges on these utes and e series sedans so I decided I wanted something a bit different. I would like to have a air feed fabricated so the the scoop does feed it. Heres another pic.

New Gel in Canberra did the scoop/bulge. Other places that I know have done it are phat customs which I think are down your way in victoria. Also have a look at aggressiveautopanels.com
Im also looking to put a typhoon bar on mine.

You got a pic of your AU?

I'm not a fan of the BA bulge on the XH, but that looks all right. Kinda muscle-car style.
Nice ute, you've done well. 8-)

Search eBay for the mustang t5 short shifters from the states. They start at about $70au delivered and are identical to the $400+ rip-offs they sell here.

Check this out:
