I dont have them but how are they stuck on in the first place?
Pins from behind and glue or just pins or just glue?
If they are just glue i would say rip them off and take off all the old glue and re-glue them on the door trim.

what you will find with the wood grain spears is, there are little nobby bits on the back of them, about 4-5per spear, and they go through a hole in the door trim and then a metal ring grabs them and holds them in place, the best way to fix it would be pull the trim off, find which one has broken and try some super glue gel in the hole till it has filled the area up and acts like a stopper so it doesnt lift anymore

The a***hole at the store diddent know he just said they where high intensity LED's, but i think i got gyped because 1 is brighter than the other 3 and im thinking maybe 1 resistor might be wrong also.
ill talk to them tomorrow

Hey Josh

Here's pic of ride height as promised, it has super lows in front and normal lowered in rear
Sits up couple inches higher at rear but i want it like this for a GOOD reason, once sub box goes in it will sit around same height as front

If i had super lows in rear once subs went in the rear would drag along lower than the front and look terrible

Ok i have an update on my T5 conversion!

I rang a few wreckers today and got a few different prices on conversion kits (basicly a manual falcon comes in to be wrecked and the keep all the parts required for the conversion).

1 wrecker quoted $1150 with ECU and $1000 without.
This also included everything including clutch and cable.

Another wrecker quoted $850 without ECU and clutch.

Basicly you get

T5 box with bell housing, mounting bracket, boot, clutch fork,
Manual pedal box
EB gear stick (tell me iff the goose neck one is better)
gearstick cover
Fly wheel

Things i will need to buy (and preffer to buy new)

clutch kit $285
clutch cable $74
spigot bearing $15
rear main seal $24
Welsh plug $3

Total $401
Total with kit from second wreckers $1251
compared to $1150 but getting manual ecu and second hand clutch and cable ECT.

The clutch kit is a PBR.
Any comments on the pbr clutch?
i dont need a manual ecu i will do the resistor trick, i am thinking about getting a j3 chip.

Any comments are welcome on any prices i have posted ect

cheers
Josh

You don't need a tailshaft, and I've heard that resistor trick isn't such a wise move, but the j3 chip maybe the goods, although I know minimal about them.
