I don't think you and Trent will have to put water down this time haha

I didn't get the rear housing done because I'm gonna put a turbo beanie over it. So thought its not worth the money

Just a lil update:

Car is pretty much back together now

It should be down at maatouks by the end of the week, so fingers crossed within 2 weeks it will finally be back on the road after nearly 11 months

Haha thanks man. Its a long thread, but i try and document most of the stuff I do to it. Thanks for taking the time to read through it all.

I hope your feeling alright after your accident though man.

Lil Update:

Car is still at least a couple of weeks away before its on the road. Anthony still has the engine and has just sent the head off to tested, then it's getting seam welded and then machined. That process alone is about 2 weeks.

Doing the maths, this car isnt gonna be on the road till just before Christmas

Hopefully it's all worth it in the end.

And hopefully its all done in time for the 'Nats

Update time:

I finally picked up the car from maatouks on firday night.

It was getting tuned at 430am in the morning LOL

It made 263rwkw on 16pound, on its run in tune, it wont have a full tune till the end of Jan unfortunately

Now its the fun part of piecing it all back together

So far the dash is all back together and most of the interior,

With Summernats less than 2 weeks away i still need to:

Get the bonnet painted, buffed and polished
Have a windscreen fitted
Source, fit and paint a few trims
Get the car detailed
Clean the interior
Install power steering.

Its gonna be a long few days and nights

Thought I might update this thread for those wanting to know how it all ended.

The car did make it to Summernats 2013 but the gearbox literally exploded on Saturday before I could blow the tyres on Tuff St.

We towed the car back to Sydney where it sat untouched for months. Eventually a new gearbox was installed after about 4months. Got a final tune done where it made 301rwkw. Cruised it once or twice before it was put up for sale.

Car went out to Orange to a shifty character where presumably he thrashed the hell out of it before onselling it to a guy in Canberra. Tje guy in Orange sold it to him under the pretense he was me and did all the work.

The guy in Canberra eventually clicked the guy in Orange was spinning sh1t and tracked me down through this thread. By the time the guy in Canberra had it, the forged motor had been thrashed completely and the new box was already on its way out.

The guy in Canberra put a crap load of work back into. Got a bresciani motor from a mate put in, had it all resprayed and new set of wheels.

The ZUTUTU plates were handed back in and had new plates put on. ZUTUTU became COPDIS, the infamous vl from Summernats 2014. No one could believe it was the same car.

Hats off to the guy from Canberra who built it. He did and awesome job on it. Unfortunately he sold it to fund his other project. It now belongs to another guy in Canberra

Funny, most VLs like yours were treasured by one owner for a long time.. All the work carried out professionally etc etc (like what you did). Then years later it's time to sell, then the poor car becomes a whore and changes hands more often then a toilet seat sees ass. Then it becomes thrashed and and has all the "previous owner did this blah blah" stories.. Was a beautiful car patch! Although the last guy did her justice.

Yeh I never thought I would sell it. The worst thing I ever did was take it off the road for a year. I lost so much enthusiasm and some things just didnt turn out at all like what I wanted.

The Canberra owned did do a fantastic job. I never got to see it in the flesh but from pictures and from what he chatted to me about it was an awesome car.

I just hope the new owner treats it well and it can be the start of someone elses journey
