It looks great man, I really like the colour.

It's not that far off the exterior Calais conversion; you just need to get a set of popups and paint them. Oh, and the badges.

Disc rear? LSD? Power options?

nahhh it will alwaybe a fake calais. one day ill get a calais. Its got berlina ass with berlina boot badge on it now. Only thing on it is calais skirts but there staying on. Next month sometime it will be badges as a berlina turbo oh yehhh.

If i respray it i want it a similar car just a little more red in it. Sometimes it looks brown and i feel like burning it. Its a ****house spray job anyway

Ive lost all the pics of my car now when my computer crashed so no new pics of the berlina ass with badge.

I actually really like the colour. The factory maroon colour on VLs looks wicked in different light.

Yeh pal, got the vl bug again.
Now running a
*mx7
*3ta ecu
*vlt injectors
*18" monaro rims once again

Still sitting at stock hight with vn suspension and handling so ****ing dangerous since being defected over a year ago. And t3 has shat itself again... Blowing smoke

Next to do is
*suspension kit consisting of monroe shocks and struts and king springs http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/VK-VL-COM...em 4aac74156c
*strut brace
*gonna slap on an ebay t3/t4 and see how it goes on 12psi


Too risky driving it around blowing smoke all the time.
