    That's probably just in QLD, our laws up here make no sense.

    Unfortunately, and in all seriousness you cannot expect to spam your car on a forum like you have and not expect to receive criticism.

    Had you bothered to read any of the threads on PF you would have realized this car would probably not go down well....and infact gotton used to the humour and general 'shit giving' which is commonplace here.

    From reading your thread on Just Commodores you seem to encourage feedback,

    Hope you all like and i get some feedback from you all
    and I believe this car is powered by Centrelink....which is fine we dont all have mega budgets to modify cars...but even on a limited budget I reckon you could have chanelled your funds better to use what you had and get a more focussed result, rather than the hap-hazard approach with no real direction you seem to have taken.

    So, here goes

    You started with this for $3000




    what I would call a 'Walkinshaw replica'....and at 3G not a bad buy.
    Why not just tidy up the fit / finish and paint of what you had here, Lose the tail lights and replace with factory items, Black out around the windows, add rear strip to rear panel.
    Then spend some money on a set of Factory 16" Walkinshaw wheels or later model HSV replica style items from Tempe or some such
    Now you have something that looks respecatble and you wont be laughed at.
    RB30eT conversions on NA RB30's can be done very cheap and yeild good results....I got 380rwHP out of mine using only a Factory Hi-Flowed T3, China cooler, Bosch 036 injectors etc.

    Thats probably what I would have done for an all up cost of under $8000.

    Now lets look at what you have done:

    wat do you think of these on it

    Why would you think they would suit?

    Then go ahead and replace your wheels with these....did you put any thought in to wheel choice as to what would look good...did you actively seek these wheels...or were these just what popped up in the trading post for a $100



    They in no way have anything to do with "Walkinshaw Replica'...



    Calais front ends on these can look good....but in order to do so the fit of the kit has to be spot on or its all in vein and it just looks cheap and nasty...that front grille goes no where near lining up



    While were on this pic...Offset number plate...Why?

    Brakes...ignoring the fact you have masked nothing why draw attention to them by painting them red?....I do not see a red theme with your car...VLT Brakes are not particularly impressive, I know brake disc / hubs can look rusty, but then why not black paint?

    If they must be red...as I think the originals may have been then just do the calipers.





    Engine Bay:

    Less is more dood..!...this is a theme you need to apply to your whole car...you have way to many colours going on here with the blue silicon hoses (Some very dodgy and to many used!) and Red IC piping, this combined with an overall untidyness and dirtyness instantly gives someone the impression of a shitter...it could look so much better with a bit of attention to detail and not much money





    Heck this is the engine bay of my old RB30et with nothing more than a tidy up (cut n polish) and some cheap ass steel IC pipes made up..I bet I spent less than you..No high mount Turbo, No XF Throttle body, no moving AFMs, No Blow off valves....it even retains the factory airbox and still went hard



    This shit...



    waste of money better spent elsewhere

    Anyway im bored and thats my 2c

    'Cracka Senior' has a good story of some clown who told him, whilst poking his finger into dads chest, "you cant book me, you don't have your hat on".

    It really didn't end well for the poor cunt. Still has the night stick, still tells the story for each dent.

    For some reason I thought this thing started life as a N/A shitbox. Looked much better when bought, just needed a tidyup.

    They say that beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes right to the bone. That is ugly all the way through.


    Dude, if u look properly with both eyes u will see that i haven't painted the pads on the inside only the outside of the pads, (black metal part) so in no way will this affect breaking ability.

    and dude, its a manual if breaks fail use the gears to slow ya down.

    I can see how this ends. Something like "I was just going around a corner, not doing anything stupid..."

    That fuse is shown in a different location in a later photo, so it is probably like the battery and just flopping around loose in there.

    *edit*

    Fuck me, that wiring looks like tricolore pasta.
    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe, and from this side only! The flight of a half-man, half-bird. Dinosaurs nuzzling their young in pastures where strip-malls should be. Cookies on dowels. All those moments lost in time; gone like eggs off a hooker's stomach. Time to die.
