Oh. I will be sliding it! Just need to get the ED going to get my L33T skillz up. There is a huge difference between hanging the a*** out once slide, and linking 3/4/5/6/7 corners! I'll be shooting for the latter!

Massive fight with my insurance company led to me getting payed out, retaining the car complete with Rego, still insured and NOT listed on the WOV register. WINNING! I'm now hunting a rear bar and tail light, then it's off to Trade Street Smash for some repairs.


wtf....gee they really dont want to repair 10 year or older cars now days, what next, a stone chip will be classed as a write off???

It's ridiculous, but I have a panelbeater lined up to do the work. It appears that I will be left with enough change from repairing it to get the T5Z in the car.

Plans for now:
respray bonnet and front bar
repair and respray rear bar and quarter
rebuild BA T5Z
fit manual including hydraulic clutch and ED XR6 manual ECU

Well, car gets fixed on the 13th, and I just pulled the trigger on a set of 18 x 8.5 -4 and 18 x 10 -12 ABC Exclusives...... Well, the wheels in the original post are now mine.

Lookin' sweet!

Goddamn i love those wheels, I'm happy with my 17's on the front, but every time I look at the rears, I fill with sadness :lol:

I haven't spoken to my upholsterer about the gauge pod yet either sorry, combination of being too busy and too lazy. Haven't even been able to work on my car.

But it will happen.

Cheers Mason! These wheels will be getting a nice big addition of fresh inners and outers soon. Looking at going to 18x9.5 -12 and 18x11.5 -10

No rush on the guage pod, I've got plenty of other things I need to get before it all comes together!

Cheers.

LTD interior goes in this week. Also, there is movement in the station. The BTR won't cope with my projected 20psi, so I've snapped up a built C4 capable of handling 900hp.
