Just a quick update, spent a lots of $$$ on getting a new brakes system, worth every cent. Has had no trouble pulling up even with the boat on the back. Also bought another calais to wreck with the same interior so I have a new mint rear seat In the next few weeks the suspnesion is going to get overhauled new springs, shocks, bushes everything then I'll be saving for my paint. I've decided to keep it original now, I cant bring myself to cut holes into her or anything for performance mods...

Thanks for your comment. I have another turbo motor was going to build a big HP engine but I'm keeping the calais stock now. So probably buy another VLCT for the other engine Damn VL's are an addiction...

Oh yes and update, going in for a complete suspension removal on Thursday. Every piece is getting replaced with new gear. Will pop up some photos on Friday or Saturday of the new setup

All the suspension work is done

Lovells Super Lows
KYB shocks
Lovells Fully Adjustable Camber Kit
Whiteline front and rear sway bars
Adjustable panhard rod
All bushes replaced
New lower arms in rear
Custom from ball joints and arms in front

I also had one of the front struts replaced

Steve drove it on the cruise 2 weekends ago and loved it But that was before the strut was replaced and the sway bars were installed... and its perfect now.

I also bought some 18' VY SS rims to go on in the next week or two, then I'll get the calais rims professionally polished.

Here are some pics...

Looking good Oliver. I bet you're loving the new suspension. Those swaybars would make a huge difference, especially with the size of that front one. How big are they? Can't say enough how much better it is to drive a car with really good suspension.
Looking forward to seeing the paint get done. Who's doing it?

The rims suit it very nicely. Just can't wait to see it with the paint done now, it's going to look bloody brilliant.
