Hey cheers AussieQ

Well i got the van back with 5% tints on the sides rear and 35% on the drivers and passenger and front sunroof.
Looks good but one of the windows is a different glass. Its a reflective, so because im fussy, ill be looking for a normal clear window and have tinted. Youll see what i mean once i post up a pic.

Just had a quote for some rims (17x10 on the rear and 17x9 on the front with suitable offset).

Also gonna start looking for some speakers to replace the factory jobbies.

I know the rears in the roof are 4" with a tweeter, and assuming the fronts are 4" too being in the very front under glove box and ignition area, any ideas whats in the back low side panels?

Ill be just replacing the 4" with 2 or 3way coaxles and not splits (not keen on splits).

Yeah i didnt intend to buy the rear bar and skirts but they came up on a local trading site (trademe.co.nz) for real cheap and these dont ever appear. so when they did, i had to snap em up.

Ill be concentrating on the wheels and suspension first and then re-asess the order lol

Ive only had the van for just over a week and i absolutely love it, havent had the chance to drive it as much as id like due to army commitments but getting there.

Just got my paltes today so id thought id flick up a pic, i also pulled the pinstripes off one side and will do the other side to give it a slightly cleaner look.

oh and a pic of the new 5% tints and to show the difference in one of the side glass windows. There is a reflective mirror type glass and the normal clear. Im fussy so gonna replace the reflective piece with a clear so it looks dark like the rest of the windows.



Also came across these so i purchased them as any Supercustom kits are hard to come by in NZ, cheap too so im wrapped. Just needs a little tidying up before fitting and painting.

Nah no trouble getting them off at all, just alittle time consuming, you have to keep grabbing the pinstripes when pulling them off and try not to let the pulled off pieces get too long or they break off, i found this out fast to save picking to get it started again. Any sticky adheisive left can be taken off with Mineral Turpentine, just simply apply heaps on the area with a rag and scrape off with a plastic spatulartype tool or what i used is my surfboard wax combe and then a final wipe with the turps and rag. presto.

Well its been a while since ive been on here as ive had nothing to update till now. Just bought these mags the other day.
Theyre Brand Trial - Zelda's, rears are 17x9's wrapped in 255/40/17 and the fronts are 17x8's wrapped in 235/45/17. The offset is +35.

Still working on reinforcing my kit, so will pick up the pace so i can get it painted and fitted, then lowered.

Hey there everyone,

well not alot has really been happening with the SC apart from taking the rear seats out and making a false floor and slamming in a double mattress and making good use of it on a few roadies....blardy awesome fun, its wicked not having to worry about the expense of accommodation and parking up anywhere on the side of the road as it looks like a standard van and not a stealth camper lol Ive enjoyed every moment of it and cant get enough. anyway, ill include a pic of one early morning when i was away and thought id capture it.


some other pics of some second hand rims i just bought and cant wait to get them on..... SSR Vienna's 18x10 37+ offset, ill wrap them in 255/45/18. i only have the the 2 so ill probably be looking like a drifter with the odd set of wheels on, 18x10's on the rear and 17x9's on the front lol.....anyway, hope yas like.....if not....i dont care anyway lol ;-P




trial fit




it clears!

you can see my bed base and bed in this pic lol

Yeah bro, was wrapped when I won the auction. Hardcase as when I saw the van the kit came off a year ago, I thought mean I want one, 9 months later the same van was on trade me selling the kit and I had just bought my van. I'm just reinforcing the kit at the mo (slow process) then will fit and paint it. Gotta remove the towbar and put a lowkey one on. Allready travelled 11,000 ks since sept 09, luv the 1kz aye cuz

Just alittle update, managed to get some fronts for the van, as the Viennas are currently hard to find, ive purchased something similar Work Eurolines 18x8 offset +38.
still alittle bit of black paint to get off, picture with out center caps



I also have an importer looking for me, prefer 18x9 offset something like +35 to +36 should fit in there.

So the Eurolines will do for now.

Have just spent the weekend paint stripping the clear coat off as it had aged and turned kind of yellow.

So as it stands, I have:

Front 18x8 +38 - will fit 235/45/18 tyres on them
Rear 18x10 +37 - will fit 255/45/18 tyres on them

Well i finally got the wheels on the van, still need tidying up like polishing the chrome an so on.

I ttransferred a pair of tyres from the 18x8's which were 235x40x18 and stretched them on to the 18x10's, temporary measure until i get some 255x45x18 tyres for the rear set. will lower the van once the kit goes on.

Ive also needed 5mm slip on spacers for the rear for clearence as well as the front.

hey thanks man, ive just ordered some small wheel nuts so i can put the wheel stud covers on, P1.5mm thread.


the offset for the rears were good but the rear sway bay on the right side touched the inside of the rim when the van was weighted, easy fix with the 5mm slip on.

Righto, time for alittle update.

Instead of polishing the 18's, i got them painted by a mate whos a panel beater/sprayer.

Kind of an army green with a gold pearl.
I bought some light weight racing wheel nuts and matching valve caps and decided to leave the center caps off as it looks better and is more the look im after.





I bought some new tyres with the specs previously mentioned:
Front 18x8 +38 - 235/45/18 fitted with a 3mm slip on spacer
Rear 18x10 +37 - 255/45/18 fitted with a 5mm slip on spacer - to clear the spare wheel bracket when cornering.

Fitted to the van, all thats needed now is to slam the sucker.
Ill be doing abit of research as to what shocks are out there for my particular needs.

let me know what yas think.

apologies for the slightly fuzzy pics.....iphone has shet megapixle cam





hopefully ending up something like this....a quick chop on microsoft paint lol


Then the kit will go on and ill get the bottom half two tone paint repainted.
