My 86 Berlina

Hey everyone, thought I might throw up some pictures and information about my VL.

It's a 5-speed Berlina and it's my first car.
I've had it for a year and a bit.

When I got it the paint was pretty ordinary so I had it re-sprayed. The previous owner had converted it to manual and put in a turbo lsd diff.
The only mods I have done are CAI and XF throttle body. I have also painted the dash and doors to match.
Future plans are to turbo it but probably won't be for a while.

Pictures just after I had it sprayed with my cousin and uncle's VL's






Pics with new wheels:

nice subs! they will hammer with the right wiring and amp behind them. i havbe to ask though why paint the interior? i had painted doorpods for a while and didn't realise how bad they were until i replaced them. you look to have used either the same paint or at least the same colour as i did. otherwise looks nice get some berlina pinstriping though would look nice.

Thanks for the comment guys.

SIroller: I painted the dash first cause it was gray and the rest was brown. Then i painted the doors just to balance it out. It looks alot brighter in the photos, but i like it.

Wow, interior is very different. Are you going to colour match the highrise lid and sunnies holder?

Been a while thought i'd give a bit of an update
Ok thing havent gone well for me the last week and a bit.

First of all i blew the diff (rooted anyway)

Alot more bits but were jammed in there.
Diff's been rebuilt and works alot better now, cost me $990

Secondly on tuesday i got nugged by a truck..... its at the panel beaters now
doesn't look like much but its costing the truck company 2k



Im also looking at getting new wheels in a couple weeks. I'd like to know what you guys think would suit it.
