You could do a two tone respray, I wouldn't expect the silver to fade since it's not metallic.

you may want to double check but I'm pretty sure the VS K-frame bolts in. there's a VQ on here with a VL RB30 K-frame, so I would think the v6 K-frame would fit. If it does just buy a wreck cheap and you get all the brake updates aswell

try v6 Conversion for the wiring, if the K-frame bolts up then the swap is 'easy' you would need to bolt your existing suspension arm to the new k-frame to get the right track width

Mate I'd rather a worked 202 over a ecotec. IMO body kit and ecotec will ruin this car it will be qld spec

body kits not gonna happen now change of plans, but it will be getting a respray as it needs one realy bad ,the ecotec is just a thought atm as one of my options only reason for doing ecotec is im spending to much on this engine as it is just to keep it running as the 202 just seems to break everything,
everyones entitled to there own opinion and i appreciate that also what you mean by qld spec?

Good to hear no bodykit champ also You will need to engineer the ecotec in the car or else you won't be getting roadworthys or clearing defects. Queensland spec means rims bodykits ecotec conversions in old cars clear tail lights cannon exhaust tips and if you lucky a race seat in the front.
