hi all here are a few pics of the latest edition to our household.....
2001 WH Statesman, 5.7litre GEN III V8, grey leather interior, all the statesman options, and only 135,000 kms on the clock....has been serviced every 10,000kms, drives fantastic, cannont fault it and is the 1st V8 i have owned or even driven for that matter !!!!!! .......just like McDonalds....
"I'm lovin it"........unfortunately due to circumstances will be 3 weeks before handover, but deposit put down and all good.....gives them time to touch up a few little details here and there....

Well today gave the beasty it's first full detail, conditioned the leather seats with a brilliant meguiars product that softens up the leather and restores the shine, a full polish which took 4 and a 1/2 hours, and polished up the rims.....then took her out for a bit of a photo shoot out at Salisbury, am very happy with the end result....

Very nice Andy Cool

If I can make a suggestion, head down to Colin at SVE and grab yourself a set of chrome LS1 caps for oil filler ect will set that bay off nicely, oh and if you chrome the banana's, well wow Twisted Evil
Strap the fire wall wire's up tight with some cable ties, cost's F A for a good clean look.

Get a bit of 1200 and autosol on those ABS lines, you will be happy with the results for little cash outlay (just plain ol elbow grease)

Well today had a bit of a play around with the car, last night I had a thought about modding my eye level brake light using my vinyl cutter, so sat down today with a pencil and paper, sketched up how I wanted it to look and then cut the word "HOLDEN" out of black avery vinyl, removed the eye level brake light, and stuck the vinyl over the top....was a bit of a hassle as you have to remove the rear seat to access the parcel shelf to get to the light, but I think it was worth it.....As now when I hit the brakes this is what you see from behind....Cheers. Andy
