Thats not bad, but i rekon you should keep the statesman garnish or find a good statesman garnish (no cracks) Cuz end of the day its a statesman not a caprice

Yeah actually I think that's a better idea, statesman instead of caprice... Or I can continue with making it a caprice and just change the roof lining and a couple other little bits??

Hey thanx for ur honesty..for me the red was a bit to bright for my car being a dark red/ marone..and iv'e previously had just the white so wanted something different..this is wat the white was like..it's not bad but i think the blue breaks it up a bit.. I stopped looking for 2/3 garnish's and lights..i had some but have sold them alreadi. Currently i have the imported series 3 caprice grill " caprice " in gold writing..Im chasing the standard " statesman " series 2 one but am in no rush then ill be selling the series 3 caprice one i have. I know a bloke that gets a hold of them alot he wrecks a **** load of series 2/3 statoes..hes average price is about 400 if u want me to put u onto him ?? Let me know.
JUST PLAIN WHITE

Thats nice man, i've always gone more for the vr/vs shape then the vt/vx. What have you done to it besides the height wheels dvd player and boot..What are ur intentions on the boot 2. I can see 2 boxes there are u putting 2 12's in there? wat equipment u putting in it. Mad colour, like the ss.

i haven't really don't much other than that. there isn't really much more i can do with the p plate laws n all that so i just wna get it looking nice.
yeah i'm putting it two 12" kicker comp subs and i got two cadence amps that i'm putting in so hopefully when they are in it sounds all good. then i can stop putting all my money into my car. except yer, i'm looking 2 get leather interior and then i've done what i want

I previously also had a vs executive, just the base model in that real light green colour. Wasnt too bad but. I painted the lower skirts black tinted windows/lowered exhaust etc etc. But i chased up some cheap vr/vs calais seats i think i got a good set complete for $150, + the console and that set the car right off. Good idea. Also with the kicker subs a mate of mine has a black vt commodore and bought the dual kicker vr's the black and yellow ones in the one box for the 2 12's..he pulled them out and put them into to seperate boxes which were designed to sit where the taillights bolt in, in each corner giving maximum boot room + he had a gas tank in there too. Once he removed them from their original box and put them into the 2 single boxes there was great dissapointment with the sound quality. Just a heads up.

yeah i've been told a few things about changing sub boxes and the way i have the set up that i'm building. i guess if it doesn't sound that great i'll just sell the custom box and try something different. not much else i can do to be honest
