Blueoval's AU2 75th Anniversary Futura

Howdy folks.

I guess I'd better start a thread to show my AU2 75th anno futura.
I bought it stock with LPG.

I have since replaced the 6 stack in-dash cd player with an Alpine unit with ipod capabilities.

Pics are as follows








On the to do list I did, I planned on concentrating on suspension mods as the first step.

SL springs
Boge shocks (love to get coilovers but too pricey)
Whiteline swaybar
Whiteline front strutbrace (if needed)
set of 18's
RDA slotted rotors & street pads all round
some urethane bushes in critical areas.

I really wanted this car handling near enough to a wrx kind of handling if not better.

Re: Blueoval's AU2 75th Anniversary Futura











If your wondering, They are RDA slotted rotors front and rear as well as matching street pads. I ditched those in lieu of Bendix HD pads all round.

All up including delivery to my door, I paid $338.

Re: Blueoval's AU2 75th Anniversary Futura

I think the added chrome is a compliment to the car.
