Well it's 99% done!
Was complete maybe 2 months ago but I had a funny "auto" noise which took me hours to work out and I gave up for a while, turned out to be a faulty starter motor believe or not it wasn't retracting enough but I've fixed that now! I've got it running smooth as now, done the timing etc and sounds great, only downfall bloody oil seals blown in the turbo which sucks (blows white smoke) My mate Ben who I was building it with well I ended up building it for him and he has bought me out, I've promised to never ever ever ever ever build a car for someone else ever again lol cause for you guys that have done it before know it takes hundreds and hundreds of hours to do! I ended up making stuff all $ for the hours I put into restoring the whole car but nothing can buy experience I guess but in theory it would add up to me probably earning about a dollar an hour lol I'll build another like this for someone for 8k if anyone's keen haha the car is damm mint and it's kinda sad to see it go but on the other hand im pretty proud of myself for what I have built! I would like to thank Ben for his patience on waiting for the car plus his funding and special thanks to my good mates mark and Graeme (boosted wagon) on all the late night phone calls and abuse from me lol I have another bt1 same as this which I'll be building for myself along with a factory Vl v8 tuxedo black berlina! Any feedback is greatly appreciated and if you guys want more build threads from me then just let me know and I'll start another!!

That's the old one, its currently got the 2x dumps on, I didn't fit the 3 inch as it only has to be removed again once turbo is changed!

build threads ftw they are always welcome.

re building a car for someone else ive never been silly enough to start that line of work! but as long as your mate keeps it you'll be able to enjoy seeing it around.

my old calais was wrapped around a pole in sydney. and my old corona was sprayed matt black and the kid gave up and put it up for sale.

bring on the black v8!!
