    G'day mate, paints holding up well after 3ish months. I'm happy with it. The prep work was just a clean with windex window cleaner then spray with paint. Mainly in case I didnt dig it I could use solvent to remove. I think its held cos the 10 year old duco was pretty rough.

    The 1.5" bodylift is still sitting in the back room mate, so cant help ya with the bumper sag, sorry. Will be putting in the susp. lift soon as me back is getting a little worse year by year and I'd rather bring the seat up to me bum than me bum down to the seat:D

    Never sussed out the vinyl wraps before but seen some ripper camo ones on the internet. Must be alright if people are chucking them on audi's:eek::D

    Plastidip paint could be another option but reckon that'd be a mighty pricey alternative...

    ...Hahahahahahahaha Wonder if Turdles ever powdercoated a whole car before? :D :D :D

    The vinyl wrap seems very durable IMO. I know anything like a decal or sticker will take forever to blast off in my cabinet. In fact, I don't even waste my time anymore. I remove the decal and adhesive before it goes into the cabinet. I'd say the vinyl wrap would be as durable as powdercoat in that respect. If not it would have to be very close.
    I've seen some pretty impressive wrap jobs. I like the stuff. :thumbsup:

    If someone would build an oven to fit their car, I would love to dust it. :D

    I hear they can be heated with torpedo heaters and a metal fan set inside to circulate if that gets any ideas going-

    Damn, sorry to hear you sold Uma.

    I think we should be thanking you, Greg. I have had many laughs with your posts and antics.

    Don't disappear!! :chug:

    I think you'd better stick around to see what we say when you turn your back:D

    I like the new ride! I wish we could get that kind of thing here. Looks very fun and useful.

    Thanks mate! :D

    Its cool seeing Uma come down the driveway each week and shes always spotless!

    The ute is a great substitute although I still reach down to open my door from the inside then reach up to the door handle, old habits are hard to break :D

    Shes got 275/20 on the bum an 245/20" rubber up front. I didnt think they'd last too long but arent anywhere near as harsh as I expected so winner winner chicken dinner :D

    Shes the last model of XR8 utes built as ford decided to only do the XR6 turbo for the FGX ute and game over for the falcon next year after 50 years of local production :(

    The only plus is that the mustang will be in showrooms this year.... :D
