hey they were on boost for a while and fat fitment bought them for me, repainted the centers, polished and took the rash off the lips and i bought them off him,

 

got my car mod plated back too 4 seats and the recaro seat this morning, cost $150 for a mobile guy called AVCS to come out, pritty cheap considering i went to vanquip at mansfeild yesterday and they wanted $400 and i had to take the car to them, also get my type x front bar and pods in about 2 weeks and hopefully paint straight after, anyone know where in brisbane do a decent job that dont charge a heap, was thinking cdr paint and panel?

my mum got pulled over today, she drove it home as i am on learners, and they got her turning into my driveway, gave her a warning for steering wheel, gear nob as its to big? and suspension too low, going to get a nardi gara 3 anyways as they have a padded center, and probably get a nismo or something similar gear nob, but going to leave it at the hight it is now

Gara 3 is tops, been using one for about a year now and love it. Depending on where you live, I had Bayside Car Care (Cleveland) re-spray a boot/ducktail for me. They did a really good job, and were reasonable about the price.

yea hopefully get it in a week or 2 aswell then buying stuff will slow down a fair bit once i get the kit and stuff, haha running out of money, paid for the car and all the stuff myself aswell, can swap the nismo skirts +$80 for type x skirts so then i got a full kit appart from lights and wing haha Edited by daniel180

update,

got car back 3 or so weeks ago got stitched so i never paid as its a complete mess and have started cutting the rust out and stuff with my mate and hopefully have that all done soon

also go my guards rolled by fat fitment

bronze xt7s 17 front and 18 rear

type x lights with altezza center will get genuine soon

and thinking of getting a dmax boot lip but sorta thinking of the stock type x wing aswell so not sure

 

pic side on is wet btw so paint looks half decent but there are bog lines all threw it also he fibreglassed all the rust and holes when i specifically said weld them, and when i started sanding it back and stuff all the fibreglass was straight over paint and pretty much fell completely out, but ive probably done 50% so far and hopefully get cdr paint and panel to respray with windows out and stuff

 

skirts and pods are also just sitting on there in the photo
