all painted up ready for all new bushes to go in.

hey mate, the other side of the wagon was jacked up, was cheeky op to take a picture.
Wouldnt mind it sitting that low, but bumper wouldnt last 5 minutes.
When it sits normally shes on Dolbi lows.

she does still exist. This wagon was a 'quick' build it will taper off once V8 is in after after power cruise, just be a nice daily then..."insert Tui add here"
i will get back into the VLT in between doing Danny's wagon also.
Still collecting parts when i can and thinking up more ideas of what to do with her.

Mate looks awesome. I really like the red walls on this car, helps build the theme of the car

Just one question, why the Dobi's? I've only ever had one set of Dobi's (not in a Commodore) and they lasted 3 weeks in my car. I got so pissed off with the ride and handling I went to see Edgar for a Koni/King coilover special. Makes it twice as bad when knowing where you work!

Thanks Alex, i like em, but keeping them from getting scuffed on the inner guards is proving a nightmare, red wall keeps getting rubbed and disappearing quick.
the springs were in the car when i bought it, have no intension of keeping them in there, plus once V8 is in there the front springs have to be changed.
Ive stuck a deal with Russell here at work, coil overs in the front are getting made now....for a box of beer! beat that for price eh.
the rears we were going to do a set up same as the race cars use, springs stay in current location with wind down set up and shortened koni shocks.
all up should cost me $350 for parts, plus few boxes of piss.
just need to sort ride height issues and inner guard scrape.
sell the old springs and shocks as they are pretty new,cost....bugger all hehe

Sounds like a perfect deal to me! Once you have a decent setup you might find the scrubbing is reduced. What springs are you using up front? I had 650lb king pro sport in my VL and they were about right IMO
