Dougs mint Vlct build thread.....

well I spose its time to do a thread on "the scrapper" I brought the Calais with little intention of building it up as this was my 6th vl, and sposed to be a little fun, anyhow this is how it came n/a 200,000 plus kays, it came with interceptors so the first thing on the cards was Calais rims its paint is pretty faded and I brought off a p plater so usuall bullsh!t holes in front door cards ect, but boot just been done for rust and all in all is pretty stock Calais

then I got on this forum and hunted all the gear for the turbo conversion, including a no holes front mount,

---------- Post added 27-12-13 at 09:12 ----------



---------- Post added 27-12-13 at 09:16 ----------

so the turbo kit was fitted, and come across a few little probs on the first road test, after I got plates on it, was on boost down the road and the scrapper looked like puffing billy!
so all hot side was pulled off and did a t3 rebuild and followed the tech thread off here

---------- Post added 27-12-13 at 09:18 ----------



---------- Post added 27-12-13 at 09:20 ----------

so slowly brought some bolt on parts like turbosmart boost controller,and brightline airbox and sunglasses gauge holder panel

---------- Post added 27-12-13 at 09:22 ----------



---------- Post added 27-12-13 at 09:23 ----------

and a boost gauge to wind the scrapper to 10psi

Are you going to relocate the battery to the boot as well? If you get a chance you should tidy the bay up a little at the same time, would take it to the next level man.

yeah id love to! but I have none what so ever prep or paint skills, but batt is def going in boot and tray coming out,also fusebox into glovebox, im talking to a painter atm about it all, so when its running I"ll take to his shop and well go from there,i guess its all the little things like hiding wiring ect, ive never done it before, so see how much longer its off the road? I spose its a hard call I brought the vl as a bit of a runabout, but I guess as they all do turned into a bit more than that,i wana build up my spare motor and fit a glide into it eventllly, so will b back off the road when funds permit,
