100% nothing like. Gold nut 51 on a manual haha... If you come across a42 Hotside sing out !!

David, will get pics up for sure mate, at the moment however nothing worthy of picture taking, I've semi stripped the paint, stripped the car and put n/a motor in for rego once I finally get her going.
Just really focusing on buying parts at the moment!
In two minds weather to go Autronic or Motec for ect, thoughts guys?

No problem.
It's all fun and games.

I get my shell back next week and will drop another pic.
The panel shop accidentally did more than I asked (I'm not complaining, but my bank balance is lol).

Ye that's one way to describe it, especially now when everyone thinks everything Vl related is gold and ask ridiculous coin for everything.

Serious note, Autronic or Motec m4?

cheers mate, appreciate it. A 42 is an awesome turbo i love mine, I had plenty of people telling me it will be a lag monster with a manual, but in actual fact its the complete opposite and is exactly how my tuner said it would be like. If you're going a glide and e85, and whoever you choose to tune it sets it up right, you will love it! keep the updates coming

The interior is getting re trimmed, body is having rust repaired and resprayed Rus, it's getting restored in my books mate, only driveline will be modified but nothing irreversible.
Hopefully off to painters in the next week or two!

Hehe
I was having a giggle at that comment (built or restored).
I was thinking it surely can be both.

Built engine and a car that is restored.

I'm not trying to rub you up the wrong way AUS880.

Cheers David
