    Thanks man, acrylic! Got the paint matched at my local paint shop, sanded it down, removed all the dents and rust, used fiberglass filler to bog up areas then hit it with some primer, few coats of paint and then two coats of clear. then buffered it! Took a lonnnnnnnng time... but the results were worth it!

    Sounds like the perfect repair and spray job, been awhile since I've heard someone do it properly. Nice work, the finish speaks for itself.

    Looks awesome the way it is. I would leave the exhaust tip looks neat. Grab some headers and cat back for some power/ sound. As for coilovers just do some research over the net there is heaps of reviews on a lot of products. The function form 2 actually have terrible reviews and are only used a lot because the go super low for the flush look.

    Yeah, believe it or not it only costed 300 dollars worth of materials to get my car painted.... and three months worth of weekends doing one panel at a time!

    $300 of materials + ~24 days labour. Might have only paid 300 pfor it, but it's worth a lot more!

    Looks good . Nice job with the paint!

    Btw I wouldn't get the F&F 2's. The front adjustment is ****ed, you can't go much lower than stock without breaking the preload. Besides that they're fantastic though.. Go figure

    Yep, couldn't of said it better! The paint is the easy part... the hardest and most time consuming bit is the prep work. Sanding, filling, taping everything off, taking parts of the car off (bumpers, fenders, etc) haha.

    But yeah, was a nice and fun project and well worth it for the result, IMO.

    Looks very clean mate, and well done for doing the paint job yourself, looks like a job very well done
    I'm liking the wheels too, I think they really suit it, surprised no1 else said anything

    If you're enjoying the ride comfort and don't want to comprimise it, because as you said, it is your daily, then just get some springs (as long as the shocks are currently in good condition)
    something like this, good brand, and about $340AUD shipped is not a bad option, and if you've got a mechanic mate, I'm sure he'd know how to put a set of springs on.
