It's good to see someone so keen to be different, it sounds like this will be a really unique car when it's done. I've seen these engines used in other bodies with twin turbos, and there's some huge horsepower on offer. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Thanks, that's the idea. Everything has already been done with VL's, just nothing really out of the ordinary.

Let's see what my annual leave brings...I hope its some serious progress.

I will post up pics of the rest of the car aswell when I do get stuck into it. Underneath is where all the fun is at the moment.

well the car was and is (sort of) for sale, but I am talking to an auto electrician for a complete custom made wiring harness so there will be nothing left from the factory one

I am also just just getting rid of a couple of other toys to finish this off....so it is still going ahead, just have to sort everything else before going ahead any further.

Apart from wiring, the only thing that I need that I dont have is a tailshaft and interior. The rest I have ready to go or can fabricate. I see 2011 as the year this thing hit the streets

I ended up selling the tinned shell and bought a s2 Calais with a sunroof which is what I have wanted since my 1st VL 10 years ago, 5th lucky I suppose. As for the rest of it, it's just on hold while I concentrate on establishing my business for full-time work, CPC and Red Star plus my shed cant fit the VL at the moment. Fingers crossed it should early-mid year when I can get stuck into it.

I did end up getting a th400 gearbox a few months ago from the US and I am always on the lookout for more parts.

more a rolling advertisement for what I can do. I have quite a few things in plan which have never been done on a VL which should shock those supposed show cars when they see me driving it on the street
