$550 posted from melbounre man, was pretty happy! Bargained him down.
The stitching has split right in the ass grove of the driver seat, not the material itself..right on the seam, so its fixable. I know a good trimmer so going to get him to stitch it up.

Its missing 3 buttons on the back seat.. they're rare as rocking horse **** to find so i looked into it.. you can pickup generic half crescent upolstery buttons for 60c each. Im going to get some calais material, either cut off the excess material from the inside of my back seat or find some ripped old seats at a wrecker, use contact adhesive to cover the generic buttons and bobs your uncle

Looking good; a real credit to you that you've done a lot of the work yourself, especially with the body, headlights and badges. You're like a young SIroller.

If you need some help with the wiring of your mobile charger/iPod auxilary input, shoot me a PM. I've had a few variations of similar in my car/s, and currently have a bluetooth ausio system and charger I built myself (streams music from my N900 over BT).

Haha andy. Yeah for sure mate, the carby gaskets might be gone ill have to check it.
Definatly missing a nice suuutuuuu between shifts.

Its a bit of a wank now, but when its boosted it will be useful when drag racing and skid pan days which ive done in the car before.

Latest news: Bought more parts to take up space in the shed



R33 GTST box. Wont be going in any time soon, still have to buy a clutch.
Looking into an Exedy cushion button. A mate had one in his VLT with a 33 box, it just started to let go at 320rwhp which should keep me happy for a quiet a while!

My front end got a bit or work over the last few days.

New rotors and pads, sprayed calipers, rolled my guards a bit and chopped and modded to get my HSV center caps on.

Didnt get any pics of doing the brakes

Respraying


I ground out webbing and raised plastic on the back on my center cap with a very small and very coarse wire wheel on the drill. Made short work on the plastic.



With the factory bearing cap taken off they pop on perfectly.
It seals fairly well, with the rim face on the rotors and the cap a tight fit. Ill take them off every month or so and just check.


Finished product:
