Cant believe they're insuring your car for 16k burgo...............

Insurance sucks though they never insure for what has been spent on it or what its worth.

I'm sorted with Shannons - agreed value with my choice of repairer etc

Given my last insurer was market value, Shannons are covering it for heaps more with only a slight increase in premium and it can be paid monthly as well.
As said thats for limited use obviously

yeh Shannon's are definitely the go, my mate has his home, cars and shed insured with them lol (he's a mechanic). Unfortunately I'm not in a position to get insurance with them though (I have tried). So it looks like Just Car is the only option.

Took the VL out for another spin round the block tonight, pulls like a cut ******* considering its a trimmed base map!

Just Car is part of the AAMI Insurance group....

did you try RAC Chris? Mine is insured for $8k they will do it for more but want photos so I not bothering for more till I get it painted.

Only another few years and we can go with all the classic car insurance brokers....

i used to work for shannons, no age restrictions you just have to prove your a genuine motoring enthusiast, which im sure the majority of you would be. Agreed value is excellent too, mines insured for over 30k

Update:

Got the car insured,
got run in tune today 6-7psi
2nd gear won't engage on the gearbox for some reason hoping like hell to get it fixed @ top quality tomorrow so i can have final tune next week.

Car feels strong, but lack of 2nd gear is ****

Update guys:

Since had 2nd gear fixed and also lost 3rd and reverse. LOL fail.

Anyway got it insured too and had some fun with it while it lasted
I'm very pleased with the feel of the car so far and the torque of the DOHC, don't have to boost anywhere, even up the steepest hills on the stall.

I'm patiently awaiting parts from KEAS to fix the box up again so I can take it for the "big" tune and finally see some numbers for the build. Stay Tuned.

Until then here's some recent pics:

Love the car man, looks beautiful, sounds beautiful! Love the plates too... ha, all i need to know now is ur address and ill see if my key fits? haha

With all these tough VL's getting built in WA its going to be an awesome summer this year... We can all go for a cruise. Mine will be back and running in a couple of weeks if all goes well. Still need to sell some stuff to buy a glide but im not fussed... just want to drive and cruise for a bit and enjoy her!

Good Luck with everything bro!

Powercruise? mannn i just cant wait to enter 'put the car together and get it running and just GO for a cruise', nevrmind powercruise lol...

I would put it in powercruise but im unsure on how much... and if I do enter I would NOT be up for beating up on it at all as its been a while to get her going again... Plus I want to save the best for motorvation! Got a suprise up my sleeve

haha i'm also waiting for that cruise LOL. Just when I thought I had everything sorted it's rooted the gearbox twice, all on less than 200hp, 7psi and 4000rpm haha. I pulled the calais off the road January '07, convinced mum that it would only be in her garage for a couple of weeks max. 18 months later it rolled out :P

I got to the point where nothing really excited me about the car, until the day we managed to fire it up.

Since that day it's just been up and down, really annoying not being able to get that final tune and see what it actually can do!! I thought the delays were all over but it's been 2 months since it started :|

I will be beating up on my car at powercruise! What an awesome event that is going to be! Also can't wait for the next huge VL cruise when everyone is ready. Will be an enjoyable day I'm betting

good luck dude, powercruise is $160 I think if ur keen for the wkend.
