Very nice and clean. I love the caliper job! But I can't imagine shifting with my left hand. Must feel wierd to Americans.

The only problem I have with your car is your choice of route for the amp wire. It's not good to run it through there because you run the risk of pinching the wire. Not only that, but as that wire gets wet from weather, the insulation starts to turn yellow/brown and gets weak. What you can do is get a Unibit from Home Depot and drill a 3/4" hole behind the black padding near your passenger side strut tower. Slap a grommet in the hole and snake your wire through there.

Other than that, keep it clean! ;)

Nice ride mate. :D
Love the rims and calipers, looks great!
The clear indicators and alloy pedals look good too.

Did you also get the alloy deadpedal?
Is the cat-back from PSC?
How does it sound compared to stock?

Actually, his power wire for the amp is in an okay location. If he chose to run the wire down the inside of the fender to the little 1/2" hole that's covered with a plastic cover, he runs NO risk of pinching the wires at all. Myself and a buddy of mine have run our wires that way ( I actually have three sets of wires there ) with no problem at all. It's very hard to find a place on the XD2's to pass wire through the firewall.

I love the car mate, looks real good. I happen to have the same style as you, and I really like how those rims look on your car. It was a shock to see it RHD, however, but then I remembered you are in Australia. That would be a blast to drive.

Yeah, that way is fine. I actually did that on an 87 Camry I had. I ran the wire right along side the hood release cable. But Aussie's looks like he ran his through the door jam, which like I said, allows the wire insulation to get wet and turn brown and weak.

Im going to redo the amp wiring during the uni holidays, hide it under the floor or something so I dont see it.
