yeah they were up in the SA for sale thread a while ago.

They are heaps comfy and hold me in very well even though they are reclinables.

Genuine stuff is so expensive, can't imagine buying the new :blink:

A side effect with them on the super low bride rails is my shoulder now sits below the window line haha... makes traffic driving a bit more challenging

The headroom wasnt ever an issue for me haha im not that tall :glare:.

the extra leg room between the wheel on the other hand is fantastic

haha it was my first time doing anything like that. just take your time and its now harder than fitting a gearbox/turbo/brakes.

and the light output is well worth it. Definitely one of the best mods i have done for drive-ability

Car was not getting up to temp and dropping way too cold when cruising at higher speeds so i figured something was up with the thermostat.

yup there is your problem.

Awesome thread man! & nice looking 32. I had a 4 door myself, which I put a genuine gtr front end on.post-132714-14380752785081_thumb.jpgthis pic was taken after driving it home from the panel shop! post-132714-1438075345046_thumb.jpgthis wasn't even 12hrs later! Chuck pulled out in front of me, bent chassis. Car was written off, was not happy[emoji26]. But have another one now, and I'm currently putting all the parts i salvaged off the old one, minus gtr front end.post-132714-14380755211665_thumb.jpgkeep up the good work, eager to see how it turns out.

The end of an era :unhappy:

shit happens.

based of the data my DVR/dash came collected 47km in an 80km zone through an unsigned(no yellow speed sign) corner. rocks/mud/sticks all over the road resulting in a very anticlimactic crash and the damage you see below.
