Modifications

Drivetrain
stock SD33t. Have removed the prefilter and run the snorkel straight to the airbox, economy seems better and less smoke.
Will remove muffler next and run straight thru system.
Maybe do an intercooler one day and 3" exhaust
Interior
Removed rear interior. Didn't use rear seat at all so removed it. Carpet was done so that went as well. Side panels and door trim will also get re done. I'll basically end up doing the whole interior with more waterproof durable materials. I trim boats so will use much of the same techniques. Don't like the colour much either so will change that too.
Aiming for a weekend bush basher rather that a full comp truck, or tourer.
Exterior
Metal is really good, no major crash or mod re-work, no rust, just looks like the paint was done on a Friday. Passenger side has paint flaking off so whole car will be repainted eventually. Removed orange decals with a candy wheel after I bought it.
Audio
JVC, which I'm not overly impressed with. 4" door speakers, 6x9' speakers mounted above seats. have used gutsy speaker wire thru-out. Can't play CD's so I've given up on that (too bumpy!), now aiming for a set up as used in boats. Ie a reciever unit with a USB etc. Will use water proof speakers etc. Will make mounts in custom consol for GPS/phone etc.
Wheel and Tire
32 BF goodritch... **** and expensive!
