Glad to hear you're getting some decent wheels. IMO the chasers look terrible. Keep us posted.

Definately. The dark blue (or any dark colour, especially freshly painted etc) looks wicked with chrome handles. And they're easy to get, just about every pre-VL Commodore at the wreckers has them.
BTW... what sort of rims have you got on it at the moment? They look alright.

hahaha i dont like them!! i think there 17inch venom or sumthing they were just old ones my bf had cuz they had new tyres and looked better then the black stockies it had on it wen i bought it...but he put my stockies on his car did burnouts and blew them up so now im only left with these rims..i guess we will sell them once i put my new ones on..tyres are like 90% on those 17s

il get a chrome handle and change one n see wot it looks like

But they're lighter colours! I agree with black on yours there burchenal, but I think they'd look wicked on STNDBY's. Ah, its all taste! Just a suggestion.
I'm in two minds about whacking them on my white Berlina...

How long until you go turbo STNDBY?

You 17 are ya? No turbs for ages hey. My friend got her L's on July 2nd just did beat that new law where apparently you have to drive double the amount of hours before you can get your P's. Here in NSW anyway.

BTW, keep the black door handles, they are the shizzle

Yeah, thats a kickarse plate. Get white on blue plates to suit!
But I'd take it off your post now so no-one else takes it! You could still have some fun as an N/A. LSD, decent exhaust, cam, etc, etc.
Can't wait to see some pics of it with 18"s!

Yeah, can't wait to see those pics. Hey, take a close up of those 17" Venoms too, I want to see what they look like.
White on black is good too; that'll be my choice when I get plates. What sort of LSD and gearing are you getting?

Great; I was thinking the front needed to be dropped a bit (didn't match the back).

GM headlights? Or after market?
