Pulled the fuse rail through and half way done wiring up the new rail the old one has seen better days

Well F*ck me its been a while shes been sitting in pieces for a few years decided to soldier on with her

Driving around on a milk crate and no interior was getting old so i got on to the interior new carpet and underlay and p clipped the cable for the battery in the boot remember duct tape is your friend










Mounted the msd 6a and the fuse box under the dash i just used a aftermarket fuse rail in place of the stock one






I made this ally grommet up temporarily so if a coppa pulls me up its looks semi legit




Gave the bay a bit of a tidy up




fixed up the gk tech piping kit so i doesn't hang down like a sore clitoris



Fixed up all the fuel lines behind the rear Rh tire




Decide to slice of the fugly tip improvement already i reckon after a dumpy if anybody can tell me where to get one?





a pic of the good side




and a pic of the bad side dont know what the previous owner was smoking but 16yr old chick love it haha



So all n all getting their slowly got a heap goodies to chuck on and paint job on the horizon any feed back would be great cheers

and before you say something about the calais tail light i got the berlina back end gathering dust haha cheers

Nice too see a car coming back from the dead. Have to get it ready to cruise in summer. Should be able to get a dump tip from super cheap or ebay or just go to any exhaust shop

Keep up the good work! Has a lot of potential.. I really liked it on polished Calais wheels. Berlina tail lights would definitely set it off... What's the go with the stencil work on the rear quarter?

Quick update dropped the engine oil and filter added mbl8 in the new oil tappet noise non existent and oil pressure risen not bad stuff changed the gear box oil 1st gear still loves to through out any one no how to resolve this problem ?


Changed the rear end to berlina spec and rewired the globe holders to vn ones as they were corroded and not making good contact typical vl with tail lights out













Anybody know a decent panel shop in Perth need the Rh quarter fixed as it has some previous damage and its making everything on the back end out of whack

Mate you should get some MX Grey mixed up in a rattle can or buy it off ebay and repaint the bars and molds. Wont look 100%, but 98% better is still better then what you have! And you will feel heaps better about the car too.

Otherwise good progress.

You have done alot of hard work to this car
For example Iv heard quotes regarding relocation of fuse box etc. in excess of $700

Quick Question: Do you still have A/C or Fan force out of your air vents, once you remove blower motor?

Im doing the same with mine and if i dont need the blower motor then i wont be putting it back in.

Cheers n good luck with the sale.
