Project sleeper
Hey thought i would start a thread on my 87 VL Excecutive picked it up in original condition of the second owner with 105,000kms.
Its in realy good condition with only a crack in the rear bar.

Plans for the car to chase 10s with a legal turbo setup. Keeping the car as stock looking as possible.
i took some pics the day i got it home

Ive only built dattos before so the vl something new for me.

Thanks mate already took off the wheels and put them on my other commy just because they had brand new tyres so its got chasers on it now. Ive started to remove the pin stripe slowly bit annoying.
the car will be going in to be painted the same colour just a freshin up to cover th stone chips and paint the engine bay.
While its there i will rebuild the motor.

bit of a update motor is out and decided not to paint the car polish the engine bay and it came up ok so going to spend my cash on power and not waste it on paint.

pick up a cooler off ooh30t test fitted that and have started collecting suspension and brake parts.
