All you need to do now is dump it on its guts!

I envy you Q777. That looks sweet!

Re: AU3 5.0 Ute with 18s

blueoval - I've just posted on the Photoshop section to see if I should go and inch or two, or go for airbags. We'll see how it looks...

Falkeen - good idea. I can't say that I've noticed how they look in the flesh. I might go and have a look at the Ford dealer. I'm sure he has a TS50 there at the moment. Is it a DIY deal with a bit of tint, or do you buy the complete light assemblies?

complete assemblies are about $300 each!
so its a DIY, but not with tint, its a matter of pulling the lights apart and painting the bezel black thats inside the housing

Re: AU3 5.0 Ute with 18s

Falkeen - thanks for the info. I went to your website to have a better look at your car, and my computer settings must be screwed up. Your homepage loads up fine, but when I click enter it opens a smaller page (about 1/2 screen size), and it cannot be maximised... Has anyone else mentioned this, or is it jsut my stupid computer???

Fordy - the wheels are just cheapo no-name Jap imports!!! :) I hope they last longer than the first pothole, but we'll see... They're called Fussion wheels. http://www.capa.com.au/accessories_c..._passenger.htm list this brand, but I can't see my wheel there. The quality does actually seems very good. The chrome looks like it's applied well. As I said, we'll see how long they last.
