That is one nice ride you got there mate, except for the wheels i reckon it looks tops. Have you thought about getting the AU1 XR8 17 inch wheels for it, like what you could spec an AU2/3 Fairmont Ghia with.

Very nice, being a 5 speed it's a rare machine and a good un at that. Wheels are nice too.

Falkeen, I got the headlights apart with some degree of difficulty.

The lights are actually held together with silastic. I tried a number of ways to soften it so i can pull them apart. The best method is to put the entire unit in the oven at 150degrees for 3 minutes, the lens then simply pulls off. Once you have the lens off remove the indicator lens. There is one screw under the indicator lens which holds the chrome/silver insert in place.

A tip - the silver on the face washes off with metho - thats right no sandpaper required, simply rub the surface with an old rag soaked in metho, comes up smooth and clean.

I used a plastic primer first, followed by the blue basecoat, then the blue metallic top coat, then about 4 coats of clear acrylic, comes up glossy. The whole mod cost $90 including new silastic to reseal the headlights.

ps.. I'll do some pics of the dials this weekend and post them. Currently i've got the dials setup with red illumination, but i'll explain how to change to colours if you're interested.

FalKeen, i got the dials from a place called 'Restore-a-Dash' in Revesby NSW. My wife actually got them for me as a christmas present. They were $295. They come with a green filter to illuminate the numbers, however this can be modified. I'll post all the info with the photo's later this week.

Here are the details
Restor-A-Dash
Unit 11, 39-41 Marigold St Revesby NSW 2212
Ph: (02) 9773 4163

That's the right method - doesn't matter if the lights don't quite fit in the oven - it should still work.

Two things - one comment one & one suggestion.

Comment - The wheels look OK and it's up to you whether you like them or not.
Suggestion - contact Canberra Car Styling (click this link). The Brumby bar looks great on the AU2s. I believe you can also get the T3 front for about $600 from SSV(?) in Sydney (plus painting and fitting). I think the T3 bar requires grille replacement too (Falkeen - can you help out here?), but the Brumby doesn't, and it's a very similar look.
