    Not wanting to change the wheel bearings to 5 stud, cost is a huge issue with that, so i got the best looking wheels i could get (IMO) on 4 stud

    Thanks jimbob. Yea its a pain in the back end having 4 stud since most, if not all other 1.6 twinports I've seen have 5 stub hubs. but hey ho, it might get the 5 stub hub conversion if i can get the money together for it.

    Next upgrade is either a flushed tailgate along with an amp and some speakers in the tailgate lining, or the grille that goes with the eyebrows. But both will be getting done, After that, its a custom induction kit with white hoses (Plan is to make the car only have 3 colours, Silver black and white).
    Then maybe rocker cover and spark plug/coil pack cover getting painted.
    Calipers painted white, new discs and pads (They are about ****ed, huge lip on the disc)
    Then, if finances allow and if the tracks (Distance between wheels), bushes, mounting points, are the same, a VXR axle (just for the disc brakes) and if finances don't allow, new drums and shoes (had drums off and they are scaling like nothing on earth on the lip of the drum)
    Door handles CC'd
    Shark fin ariel (With custom adapter)
    Paint the gun metal grey dash white
    Bastuck Cat Back exhaust
    4-2-1 manifold with sports cat
    MTK GT/O bodykit
    And 95% tint across the back and 30% tint on the front side windows.

    Sound system will get upgraded at some time.
