My First Calais 2B Turbo'd

Hi, Just bought a new Car Today, This Is my first and hopefully last Vl, Bought it today from pickles auctions in melb, Its a N/a, But its exceptionally clean and will be getting the hair dryer treatment and will run on straight Gas through the tried and tested Gas research Setup with an aftermarket ECU, Been around the site for a while, as once I learned about how good the Rb30 is with a turbo, I was sold, and actually bought an AVO stage2 cooler setup b4 finding the right car.

The right car had to be-
cheap, relatively.
Clean and neat, without the need for a respray etc...
have cruise control and preferably pwr windows to allow for 3way speakers in the front doors.
and have a series 2 engine to allow for a turbo setup.


I was Hoping to get a fully optioned berlina as Im not realy into bling, but The champagne colour doesn't look too bling in the calais, and suits me to a T, Has all the Requirements I Was after, Paid 2,300 , not to shabby a price, which leaves me more for the driveline.

Looking for 200-220 RWKW
Want high 11s and all on straight lpg.
Will have white venetians and run with Ceptor's, don't want it stolen for the mags like the last owner, who also had the stereo stolen, Mine will be relatively well Hidden to avoid the same consequence.

Here's some pics









Let me Know Your Thoughts,
Steve.

Yeah, I wish it wasnt butchered in the shelf, but a new parcel shelf is on the way, i'll have to have some patches welded in too for a RWC as well, now that this is a RW Item.
Youd have to be realy looking to spot it once Im through with it.
Still cant Stop smilin, been years coming, family first and all that caper, towed it home today, couldn't go above 90 cause it would start to get the death wobble up after that.
Its home now in my garage where ill lavish some attention on it

Ps. looking for an electric window switch cluster $50 and a driver side rear sill mould $20 if anyone has one or both.
