Aww thats just cute isn't it.

Have to say mate 60% of your mods aren't to my taste but god damn I respect your commitment! N/A VL is one of the best cars to get into the scene in, and looks like you're doing fine

Good luck with it, keep us all posted - everyone enjoys a build-up story.

So why you selling your engine? Or just wanting to know what your time is worth.

UPDATE:

Cai pipe has a 3.5inch flange on it now to bolt on to the bottom of the air box

engine bay is painted balck now (about 2 weeks ago) its looks dirty because i mowed the lawn and put dust and dirt all over it lol. Lol it was my ffirst engine bay ive done before so it not bad lol.

sound system should hopefully be goin in, in about 2 weeks

i went with black because black hides all the grease etc because with my old engine bay it was all stained from grease/oil and rusted from brake fluid

when you say smooth it out do u mean finishing bog or those stupid dints that vl's have in the bay? i didnt use finishing bog cause its not a show car so i thought why waste my time, and i couldnt be ****ed getting my mate's oxy just to push some dints in or out lol.

yeah i wanted to go with matt black i love that colour but my mate had only this black at his house already not used and i have not job atm lol so the whole engine bay was free (black paint,compressor,paint gun etc,primier, spies and hecker 2 pak clear/top coat. it was mad that he had all that at his house already.

Raptor: lol that calais badge and the turbo badge i got givin to me so thought well why not and put them on lol, turbo badge inside the car to hide it so i dont look like an idiot, and wen i got this car it came re-sprayed and de-badged so i have no badges except for the calais one now Lol! i suppose i could do calais conversion when my car gets sprayed candy appple (got quoted the other day). Once i get a job lol!!!



BEFORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!






AFTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!

Looked better white, you can tell it wasn't sanded back properly before painting. Few things I would of done different, but as long as your happy with it, it doesn't really matter.

fair enough(personally i think white looks better but its your car) i think you should have at least gotten rid of that dent on the right hand strut tower? ( i pretty sure its called)

and i konw its not a show car but i thought you would have been at least interesting int relocating the battery and smoothing that out aswell as the fuse box


i have to agree with raptor at least you are doing something and constantly trying ive given up on mine too many times
