    Might be best to see a chrome shop. Sounds like acid removes the chrome easy but not the nickel under it, and aluminium isn't a fan of it.

    More progress. Popped in for another look today, ute itself is fully primed. Fibreglass repairs on the body kit are all but done. A lot of work was needed there, there were giant chunks missing from the rear bar from where a couple of hundred tyres had exploded over the years. Really nice work. Really happy to see it coming along.








    Also, tonight i picked up my Recaros from the trimmer. Had the lower bolsters rebuilt on both as well as the uppers on the driver's seat. Cushions were all split under the trim. Didn't take a before pic. They just need a good steam clean now.



    While i was there i dropped off the roof liner to be repaired. It has the standard Commodore droop. This is actually the second liner it's had, i bought a new one from Holden a few years ago because the original sagged but the new one did the same thing!

    Thanks, if it turns out half as good as yours i'll be more than happy.

    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

    While I had the headlining out of my ute I coverd the inside of the roof in genuine Dynamat, all the way down to the door seals to close off all the holes that let noise in from the tray. It was well worth the effort.

    They're quite snug now with the bolsters fixed! Lucky they were a "factory" fit.

    That's a good idea, thanks. They are a bit tinny inside. Were did you purchase the "Dynamat"?

    Looks like a bunch of Stato/Caprice gear in there, seats, belts, console and door trims?

    The Dynamat was pingjing stuff from ebay. It seems ok to me. As well as fixing the tinny-ness, it got rid of the kick drum sound that was always there when hitting speed bumps. And yes, Statesman dash, carpet, seats, belts, power windows, door trims, shiny bits - Pick'n'Payless' best customer award.

    This is coming together nicely, paint is always a huge deal and it must be awesome to see multiple people working on your car at any one time.

    This is gold. I fucking hate these cars. But I love the fact that you are going all big guns on it because you dig it.

    It's genuinely great to see a nice job if it mate. (don't feel bad about building a dunnydoor... I think corollas are a sports car )

    Enjoying your updates. These things will only get rarer and cooler from now on. You're doing it right.

    Thanks guys. It will be a butt ugly car, but it will be a clean butt ugly car. 90's style isn't quite cool in my eyes yet, give it 10 years.

    It is definitely not a beautifully styled piece of art. But there's just something about it. I've been through so much with it and done so much in it. Soooo many stories, it's a part of me.

    I'm a Holden man by default, but in reality i like all cars. I would loooooove a Twincam swapped KE Corolla or a Sprinter, or a '59 El Camino, or a '65 Lincoln Continental 4 door, or an MX5, or a Lambo Gallardo..... etc etc.

    (Also have a thing for SV21 Camrys, i'm a sick fuck)

    I've always liked the VS shaped utes. Probably influenced by the fact that two mates had them when we first got our licenses and they were still quite new. Me being a poor uni student had to settle for a shitty old Rodeo.

    There is a WGR sedan on carsales at the moment for 25k. Supercharged so probably has a whopping 220kw http://www.carsales.com.au/private/d...SSE-AD-814871/

    That sedan has been for sale for a long time.

    I'd really like a nice VS Maloo in red, i used to work on them when i was a first year apprentice and they were brand new. Much better styling than the WGR stuff.
    I also have a shitty old Rodeo lol.

    Another update with some more blurry iphone pictures.
    Paint is getting very close now, the body has been rubbed flat.








    Progress is really good considering it's being worked on in between literally dozens of other cars. All the work is top notch too.

    Yep. It's great having somebody else do the hard bit. I get to do the fun assembly part in my own time. Looking forward to it.

    Better get a move on clearing my Nissan pos out of the garage so i've got room to work on it. It's in there somewhere!

    Great day! Watched this thing get painted this afternoon. From primer, to sealer, to colour, to clear in a couple of hours. So stoked!

    Sealer goes down, ute turns light purple.





    Then some red and some clear.






    All the hanging panels and bumpers and mirrors and handles and skirts and blah blah blah all laid out and being primed at the same time the body was getting coloured in. These will be painted tomorrow. Then the whole lot will be coming home sunday for reassembly!






    Flat top hard lid is now actually flat, instead of textured gelcoat it was before, holy fuck!




    This shit has brightened my shitty year. Doesn't seem real, doesn't feel like my shitty old ute. Overwhelmed.

    Looks shit hot. Will be worth it once it's all screwed back together. Then you'll be worried about scratching it, and making sure it gets waxed every week...

    Wow thanks mate. I will once it's more complete. First step in keeping it perfect will be booting that dirty old Nissan out of the garage tomorrow to make room for this.

    Them hardlids stay flat as long as you dont open tray...
    Always liked the look of the thinner flush fitting hardlids & getting rid of the tonneau clip hooks.

    It's coming together nicely dude.
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    Just going through a few old magaziness and in one issue of Australian Muscle Car they did a feature on the Wayne Gardner Racing Commodes and mentioned the ute and were asking for any info on the whereabouts, when done it may or may not be worth dropping them a line to say it's still going. Apparently, this was the only one made according to the mag.
