Thought it was time I started the journey of my Foz.

I bought it back in March of 2006 from a local dealer, a 2002 MY03 XS Auto, with 27k kms on the clock.

We got the dealer to chuck in a cargo barrier, which we had fitted shortly after, and also added some other creature comforts, and did an alarm upgrade.

Image

Since then, I've upgraded the rear sway bar to a Whiteline 22mm adjustable and got a set of the PMD strengtheners to accompany it. I also picked up a second hand set of the gas bonnet struts. I then got a second hand pair of the factory tweeters. I also ordered a stainless rear step from Japanparts.

Image

Then, on the weekend, we took it for a road trip, the second one we've taken it on, this time down to Victoria, as we had a wedding to attend. Unfortunately we hit a wallaby and a bird within minutes of each other, but fortunately there appears to be no tell tale signs of the encounters.

Image

On the way back, we past a sort of milestone on the odo, so I pulled over and took a pic of it.

Image

Update: A photo from the recent Mini-Meet. Just prior to this I fitted the Whiteline endlinks(that was a day I won't be forgetting in a while! :oops: )

There'll be some update pics hopefully on the weekend.

Yeah, the missus drives it most of the time at the moment, hence why not a lot's been done to it, but we're replacing the daily, and the Foz will become my daily.

Yeah, the resonator's still in place. Been thinking about the resonatorectomy, so it may be on the cards soon.

Yes Tommy speaks the truth.

4 pot goodness has finally been achieved, and well worth the wait!

And I'd be lucky to fit a sheet of paper between the rims, being the associated change, and the calipers. Looks like it was meant to be there. :D
