    Lol I don't mind admitting my missus makes a lot of the decisions, but when it comes to the cars, they're all my responsibility.

    Interesting little bit of interchangeability too, the au battery box slips straight into the fg. Only difference is the au one doesn't have the clips on the side.

    Well, the fg went to a new owner in Sydney last week, he's a bit of a car nut, already has quite a selection of nice fords and Holden's. He reckons he had been after a breeze xr8 for years lol.

    So I'm back to one car again. Il be giving the barge some loving over the next few months.
    Springs are ordered, tint is booked. I picked up a set of fg xr6t 18s to go on it until I can afford the 20s I want.

    Here's one pic of it sandwiched by roughly 700rwkw of Aussie goodness lol. The xr is 370kw at the wheels and the clubbie is just over 300. And mine? Probably 120ish lol.

    Racked up roughly 900kms this weekend, great way to bed in the new suspension I reckon.

    Feeling the love for big old girl again, just so comfy on trips.

    Went up to eumundi on Saturday, then today it was up to toowoomba, across to crows nest, back down through esk and headed for home. It just soaked it all up effortlessly.

    Yeah his lane is pretty much how I'd like mine to look. As crap as that site can be some times, the sheer number of project threads is hard to beat.

    They're out of a millienium fair lane, but I think they're the same as t series.

    Still gonna be some chrome. Bonnet garnish will go body colour, I'm going to spray some of the horizontal bars in the grill black ala kristos black 'lane, and the mirror scalps will be reduced to a chrome strip.

    Currently keeping my eye out for the right donor car to come along. Next big phase will be ls2 and six speed. Sure to make a few spit lol.
