Not as of yet. Might get some today. still waiting on hub caps so only one so far. Really glad i got wider rubber it looks much better and the white walls fit better aswell.

Green200b you wouldnt have a badge for the steering wheel spare mine is worse for wear.

Ok as promised some pics. Stopped at a massive empty lot to take these and some dog walker parked directly infront of me. FYI flapper white walls are stubborn sh!ts.

Nice one! Just needs to be quite a bit lower. How bad is your SX wheel horn button? Both of mine look a bit blurry, it might be a Datsun feature. Bring it down when you get the springs if you like, and you can compare it to my two.

Well it is basically a blank button to be frank.

Wow haven't been on ozdat enough lately. Well I started another project recently which has eaten all my spare time (and money) so the 200b has just been driven when I have time. Upon fitting correct width tyres I noticed 2 things one that they look awesome and two I need to role my guards if I want to carry a passenger or a small socket set. I have decided to begin repairing the rust in the doors and bonnet. I worked up the confidence on my bigger budget project. Also I'm trying to avoid fitting my mint bonnet and boot lid.

I will get some current pics with the hubbies and what not.


I had to edit this post after accidently making a racist remark. My other project is a bigger budget not bigger with an N project.
Lol

Thanks for the comments guys. Yeah i love the steering wheel. It is better to drive with than the old plastic skinny one. Because i put the fat tyres on at the same time it feels like one hell of a handling upgrade.

I have been keeping my old CSA pentas in the boot because im lazy along with a fairlane rim and a tin of paint. I took all that out so now hopefully i can carry more than just myself and and a bottle of water without shredding my rear tyres. Anyway im going to bunnings and to clean the car so maybe some glamour pics tonight.

it cost me about $400 all up. Not to bad i thought.

I used to prefer the newer style grille. But for a more gspec look im using the older "pignose" styled one.

Saw this car the other day in Rosanna area, I was the idiot in the FG ute trying to get your attention! Looks awesome with the new setup but you REALLY need to lower it!!! Now!! My friend thought it looked pretty cool but had the same complaint about the ride height.

Yeah i noticed it was you eventually Alistair i will blame the late early shift i just clocked off for taking a while to do so. Yeah she sits a bit high still but right now the guards wont allow more lows. So i need to get on top of that.

I get a few people making comments in traffic and i thought you where just another guy but i eventually noticed. Not the kind of car im used to seeing you in.

Rolling the guards is definately a necessity. Should just be able to tuck a bit of tyre if you do that. Your car certainly does have a different look. That was a nice little squeal when you eventually turned off as well ;) and don't stress, I rarely frequent car trips in Fords :thumbsup:

Well il be honest I currently own 3 fords but I have basically given my AU to my girlfriend. So I guess I can't criticize lol. Also I was disappointed with my wheel spin usually I can get the car rather sideways on that corner. I think the SU's where having an off day. Anyway it was just lucky I took the datto rather than one of the fairlanes otherwise I doubt you would have noticed me.

I can't wait to roll the guards so I can get some nice tuck not sure about the fronts there is alot of tyre hanging out.
