Car's been tuned and getting driven.

Didn't need the 1000cc injectors so will put them in when the new turbo gear goes on

For some reason my other photos aren't uploading, will try later.

Thanks for the comments guys!

Interior is really tidy, the seat covers have been on there since factory!



Apart from rolling the rear guards a few times, picking the right sized tyre, and grinding the rear seat belt bolt back it wasn't overly complicated

[IMG][/IMG]


But apart from an adjustable pan-hard rod, and although I was skeptical to do it, you've got to hit that lip underneath the door with a mullet to get it smooth with the rest of the guards after you've rolled them.

Otherwise if you don't do it you can make a mess of freshly painted wheels like this:

With a stiffer rear setup, and without almost 400kg's worth of guys sitting in the back it probably wouldn't have happened but.

Starting to tidy up the bay, so started with a new master cylinder. Booster will be getting repainted in the next couple of weeks too.

Think i've got most of the Wilwood catalogue in the car now...

Cheers MUS, the first scratch hurts the most


Now that I have the driveline sorted I just have a couple of small things to do with the interior, and will then decide on what to do for an engine.

Definitely my fav build on CT. Top work all around. Looks like a old man on the inside, clean cruiser on the exterior and a beast under the hood.

Cheers MUS, appreciate it! Hopefully have the turbo on pretty soon, along with a couple of other things.



Put the (genuine) vx gts's on, looks way better in my opinion.

Thought i'd better put up a quick update of the car. Made a few really cool changes, one of which is another new turbo, which by far trumps the GT42. Got some big ideas for the engine bay, hopefully have some pics in a couple of weeks once everything's fitted.


In the meantime here's a pic of the Hypertune fitted. Also had to get rid of the factory fan and shroud as it wouldn't clear the new piping.

Cheers Corran appreciate it. Remember always reading your feature in SC back in the day, still is one of my favorite VL's.

Haha was waiting for someone to ask, some how the bonnet release stopped working, and I hunted around but couldn't find a brand new one so put the bonnet pins on (and I was sick of putting 2nd hand parts on only to have to replace them again). I know a lot of people wont like them, but I think they look alright.
