Doyles 86 Red VL

Hey I've been reading of the forums for a while now, and thought id post up my dodgy red machine. It doesn't look like much now.. but i have a lot of plans so hopefully one day it'll be a decent vl.

Make / Model: Its a 1986 Holden SL commodore
Colour: Red
Bodykit: n/a
Engine Type: RB30
Engine Mods: n/a
Exhaust: Lukey 2.5in exhaust to 3in tip
Gearbox: 5spd manual
Diff: factory
Brakes: factory
Suspension: factory
Wheels/Tyres: 15in Ceptors
Interior: factory
Stereo: dodgey sony explode system

Other Mods: Replaced rear lights for berlina lights

Future mods:
Just purchased another VL that im going wreck.. pretty sure its an original berlina turbo... although its got a 25-30,t3turbo, vl turbo diff, r32 gearbox, 3" exhaust from the turbo back. Microtech plug in ECU (plug in cause the Nissan one is still there) It has a low and high boost control and the switch is inside.
When it was running it made 195kw at the wheels.
So the plan is to replace all interior, and then build the 25-30 up until im on my fulls and drop the sucker in and have some fun!

I want to rebuild the bottom end, get Vt commy brakes, r33gearbox and maybe a garret 35-40... that's all i can think of atm.

Okay picture time..

This is when i first got her and gave it the virgin wash

Replaced the dodgy wheels and put on some 15in stockies on

also took the mudflaps off...

berlina lights on the rear ..

And this is the second vl... This was her back in the good days... it looks completely different now. g

Really good condition interior, pretty original

The 25/30 g

And yeahh.. that's pretty much it!
Would love comments and positive criticism!
