    Exterior parts websites?

    Currently own a well modded 99 Grand Prix GTX and down the road looking to maybe pick up a GTO. I like them and like the power they put down and the fact that L92's are easy power, but I naturally found myself a bit more drawn to T/A WS6's. It's hard to put in GTO and expect parts sites to pop up for the new ones, so what do you guys go to for exterior parts?

    Looking to see what I spot that really makes these cars pop, not anything like a spoiler or rice, but maybe the Aussie front end, or anything else like that.

    Yeah the RA6 I have looked at and drooled over, but I didn't see any kits out there, one is close, but diff grill design. Was looking at a bit on Monaro parts, but how many of those companys really ship to the US, and their sites are pretty hard to navigate, lots of them end up having nothing.

    I really like that one of the aftermarket companys almost makes the same hood for the GTO's except it has some vents on the back side, only thing I didn't like about the hood is in front of the air dams theres a sharp angle, wish that was smooth

    I really like the grill inserts, makes it resemble a GP some more, which is why I like the GTO look, theres a hood for the GTO that looks just like the one on my car, here is my current wheels.

    Thanks for those links, found a ton of things that would make the GTO stand out a bit like I wanted it too, only thing that makes me sad is the Banshee hoods don't extend out the sides, I like that hood a lot as that is the one that looks almost dead on like hteo ne on my car, I like the lines that head forward makes it look like they line up with the front grill openings better. Also don't like the big flat spot at the openings before the air dams, wonder why that isn't smooth. Either way thats prob the hood I would go with.

    Thanks for the links, you guys should sticky something like this, not as easy to find GTO exterior mods like it is for F-Bodys.

    Monaro not monero

    Try HSV GTS coupe



    HSV Clubsport R8


    VZ Monaro


    Any september 2002 - july 2006 holden VY-VZ commodore or HSV Y or Z series front ends will fit as long as you get the corosponding headlights as some are different shapes.

    And depending on headlight shape, you'll need the guards to suit too.

    Your GTO shares our GTS coupe / monaro lights with the round ends where the VY-VZ's and most HSV's Y and Z series have the sharp angle lights like the clubsport R8 above and your 2004 to 2006 chevrolet lumina SS

    Do a whole heap of searching around on ebay.com.au or www.holmart.com.au and your bound to find a front end that not many have over there.

    I hope thats not too much to take in. If you have any questions please ask and ill try to help as much as i can

    If you want a front end that requires the sharp angled headlights then i suggest that you source guards and lights off the corosponding Lumina over your way as they will bolt directly on.

    Thanks for those pictures. Kind of strange you guys have the HSV GTS and the VZ Monaro, whats their differences besides a bit of cosmetics? I really like the HSV more, the VZ dont look bad either though, very close to our GTO. Sadly though we dont have RWD Lumina's over here, Europe gets them and starting this year police will be able to buy the LS powered Luminas, but only police, kind of strange.

    I think its funny the way lots of you guys want the GTO look, and lots of us over her want the Holden look.......we should start a parts swap network so we can just trade parts

    Oh i thought you had the lumina over there.
    Maybe im mistaking it with the exports to the middle east

    HSV is Holden Special Vehicle.

    Its the upper class of Holden but not really the same company if you get my drift.
    HSV take the base model and add their touch

    The HSV GTS in the pic is the equivalent to the VY (aka Y series in HSV language) and the VZ monaro is just the coupe version of our commodore (non HSV)
    The big difference is the VY series II GTS come stock with 300kw Callaway-tuned C4B while the rest of the Y series HSV's came with around 260kw.
    There's way to many power ranges over the years to keep track of what had what power but HSV always kept the power figure above the standard V8 commodore.
    The standard Commodores with LS1's had 235kw-245kw between the Series I and II VY's


    VY and VZ are basically the same in respects to the base car but have amongst other little additions, a few different panels e.g being the guard flutes which didn't come out in the VY's but everything can be swapped between the 2
    The later VZ's had the new 6L L76

    Yeah seen that kit before, it looks pretty close to the widebody one GM made, problem is says Fiberglass. Front/Back bumpers made of fiberglass would just be a mistake to get at that price, one bump and you'll be spending a lot more money

    I have a steet commodores mag over here that has a propper wide body mod done to a monaro. Done in sheet metal and looks great. No add on fiberglass bits but would cost a mint to do.

    Ill scan a few pages tonight

    I dont think fiberglass fender flairs are a bad idea, numerous vehicles have plastic/fiberglass body panels. But bumpers made of fiberglass just isnt worth it. Heck I bought my GTX in April and idiots who cant parallel park have hit it 5 times on the front bumper since then. Luckily they have only removed paint, if it was fiberglass it would have been all cracked up or broken off. Of coarse all of them drove off, people are so nice :/
