About time I posted some photos of my new pride and joy
-that's it as it was when I went to look at it


And below, the day I brought her home





Same day still.... parading it around a bit...






Opened all doors to let the heat out

Finally some pics. Thanks, but I notice you had aftermarket alloys in your first pic. Did the seller keep those rims?

Lol what's to cry about?

Yeah it's pretty lowered, I was told that the height is still legal.
I don't know specs, but the rears are king springs and the fronts look stock so I'm guessing they just cut them.
The windows are also tinted to 35%, and I had that verified.

Yes the seller kept the rims that were on it, I wasn't too fussed tho because I am a fan of the original rims.
I think one day I MIGHT go black meshies with dish, but i'll totally keep the originals handy for cruises or track days or whatever.
-the seller kept a lot of things, but that was all negotiated.
He kept those number plates, the front Isuzu badge and the rims.

I was very happy to find there was not a holden badge on it anywhere. even the steering wheel he put an isuzu horn plate. There is currently a holden one on the front...BUT NOT FOR LONG.

oh rear garnish aswell. he had a turbo one on it. I bought an Isuzu XL one off of wedgenut.

Achem. well. There is one thing I've avoided showing in these pics, which is a large section on the drivers side that has paint missing.
But I'm hoping to save up a little money and fix that within a month or so....

I can't believe Rick had a cosmetically flawed vehicle - that must be a first!

Not that I care about cosmetics - that comes last. (It's nice, but mechanicals and condition are more important to me._

Rick hadn't seen it in 3 years. I bought it in Adelaide, his adelaide mate had been driving it. A bit of bog fell out were a previous owner must have badly repaired it. but, as I say it shall be fixed soon....issssh
worry bout the AC first. damn weather.

Cheers chris, i notice your DP is of a black one.
I always wanted a black one, but I do love white and red too.

Me too! All those colours looks good!
The only "bad" thing about black in my opinion is; Paint "scratches" after car wash shows a lot, especially comparing to white paint.

I hope you don't put your cars through a car wash...

uhhh.... I did once. because I never had before.
I was wary of it in the first place but thought "ahh i can't be that bad" Never again.
I remember after it thrashed the mirrors and wipers around I got out and checked if everything was ok.
seemed ok.
got home. went to the boot.... wtf. the numberplate was bent like a "]"
not happy jan.
