Thanks guys, appreciate the comments.
@ZombieVN the interior photo is an old one from around early November last year before C4C which i was gonna take this to ended up taking the folks VE with slammed rear, calais front and rear etc... Back to the question the gauges are mounted under the Stereo in the pocket, will get a photo up soon when i pull the car out of the shed again.

For a little background on the car its been in the family all my life (14 years) was my Grandparents car and was used as a daily all that time until i bought it of them in late 2011 and from there it has become the VN you see before your screens today.

A little more looking into the past of the car has reveled that it was bought brand new from a Holden dealer down at Glenelg (cant think of name atm) and it was optioned with factory FE2 suspension and Tow pack as the original owners were a retired couple who used the car to tow a caravan around the state until my grandparents bought it in 1999.

thanks for taking the time for reading any ideas or comments are appreciated positive or negative and will be taken into consideration.

Cheers, Bj.

Love those wheels!

Don't change a thing. Looks sweet as-is.

My only suggestion is to remove the boot garnish around the number plate and put some foam behind there and a bit of silastic wherever a screw/bolt holds it, or that sub will make it buzz something fierce...

@ZombieVN Will look into that cheers. Sub and amp wont be wired up for a while still gathering parts and buying other parts for it here and there.

@RBE 747 Cheers mate, don't have the Simmons anymore were my uncle's borrowed them for pics he sold them just after i got the pics. They were 17x8's hence the FR17. Quick question were you at SMASA this year cause if you were i was parked next the VL Calais and Statesman behind the COCCSA display.

Cheers, Bj.
