    What do you guys think so far ? I'll be redesigning the ad Colums because I think there's a little too much going on.
    Logo is also on the way...

    Any other changes ?

    It's sad but you will get more peolpe having a look if they can just click a link rather than copy paste or typing the address into the browser.

    None of the pics resolved ?

    I would have a pic next to the header up top

    Maybe Car Makers instead of specific parts ??

    Girls may not know what a tailshaft is but they know what a holden is

    hope that helps

    Thanks for the view guys ! I'm planning on pushing the wreckers directory and doing something similar with bike.net.au.

    The logo will be up on the weekend as well as cleaner ad columns... At the moment I feel like there's too much going on

    The site needs to be customised a lot more. At the moment it just looks like a blank template.

    I'd also ditch the "Australia's #1" tagline, because it just makes the site look silly when you only have a dozen listings.

    Thanks for the feedback Shane, now that you've said it, it does look stupid. It's a classipress wordpress theme. It has been customized a fair bit, Have a look a http://bike.net.au (original theme) and you'll see the difference.

    In saying that i do agree with you and I still have a lot more work to do.

    You're not alone. So many websites do it, and domainers are the biggest culprits! I think it takes away a bit of a website's credibility unless you can back it up.

    But once it is number one, by all means use it! :)
