Project sleeper

Hey thought i would start a thread on my 87 VL Excecutive picked it up in original condition of the second owner with 105,000kms.
Its in realy good condition with only a crack in the rear bar.

Plans for the car to chase 10s with a legal turbo setup. Keeping the car as stock looking as possible.
i took some pics the day i got it home












Ive only built dattos before so the vl something new for me.

Thanks mate already took off the wheels and put them on my other commy just because they had brand new tyres so its got chasers on it now. Ive started to remove the pin stripe slowly bit annoying.

While its there i will rebuild the motor.
