My Slammed VLCT

Hey guys, im kinda new here just bought a VL Calais Turbo about a month ago and I just love it. I have gone threw 3 toyota corollas and its a big change from front wheel drive to rear wheel drive
Donít know much thatís done to this Calais but I guess the pictures speak for themselves.
Since I bought it I have just been tidying up the interior and engine bay.

If anyone has some grey VL Calais seats for sale let me know
thanx

Some fun lol $460 later

nice clean car mate. shame about the drivers seat looks a bit sad.

also stuff like that video should be kept off the streets mate. you've also just posted clear photo's of your car and plates and a link to a video of that. just hope for your sake no cops decide to read this thread and click that link.

anyways. good luck with the car and nice wheels to by the way i like the kspeed's used to have a set on a slammed white vl berlina

any plans for the car?

Definately, looks awful. Aside from that, you make Eleanors look good.

What seats do you have in the front? They're not VL trim.

looks like a nice start.

are the rims 18"s with the whitewall? they look like 20"s!

also seconded in loosing the turbo dash badge and the seats. well you already know they are just wrong.

is it an original calais turbo? or a mockup / n/a?

also i would reccomend getting the platres reissued in black and white but thats personal taste. did you think them up yourself or did they come with the car? not bad anyway

was only stating. the faces are actually different angled. the eleanors go in from the edge one the angle. and the kspeed's are flat from the edge then drop in at the centre.

pretty sure there 20's as from memory the kspeed's only come in 20x8's.

here's my old berlina with the same rims

Well its been a while since i have updated this, not much has happend
altho i bought new calais taillights and a garnish.
I tinted the bottom half of the tail lights, re did all of the lines on the lights in a very fine silver and cleared them. Also re done the lines on the garnish and re cleared that too

Painted a spare petrol tank in the same colour as the bars and painted the straps black

Lights



The exhaust rubbers broke thats thats why its sitting so far down



Random pic of all our cars :P



Another random pic



And the tank

Well since i had some spare time on my hands i got cracking on re spraying the VL.
repaired it all and shaved the aerial and both key locks.
I sprayed it a clean 3 layer white pearl
here are a few pics

i still have to fix up the gaps and re paint the boot. so thats why i havent put on the rear moulds yet

let me know what you guys think

heres a pic when i first got it home from the booth. you can see the pearl better in this pic than the others.
