VL wagon... streeter

Little quiet on a sunday night so thought that I would throw this up and see what you all thought of it

I had a silly idea that I want to do up and convert a vl wagon, so a phone call was made and I got one for the massive sum of $300.
Yeah my misses said that too...."why ya wanna do a nanna wagon for?"
Well to answer the question.....No one else has in my little crap town

This is a picture of what I started with...


So work started pretty much straight away....since some one had already started to strip it for paint most of the hard work of pulling it down and striping the chrome trims and all had been done, yet not sorted in any order so I had crap loads of parts and many bolts with no idea where it all went, so it got prepped and painted as well as the bars.




A shot after its been all painted.


After I got the car back I jumped on the net and started looking for some new bits and found my self...
-=- Berlina Door trims
-=- Calais Centre console
-=- Calais Dash Cluster
-=- Turbo Exhaust Manifold
-=- Rebuilt T3 turbo with lines
-=- Front mount cooler & piping
-=- Modded N/A plenum & xf throttle
-=- Full 5 speed manual conversion

and hundreds of randon little bits from the local wreckers as well as sorting out the whole cargo area of the wagon that was full of parts

Also put on chrome door handles (so much better than crap matt black ones) and now as you'll see in the pics it's now all colour coded except for the mirrors.

I started putting it back together and for all those that have never taken on a project like this, it's not really that scary
It just takes alot of time and sometimes makes you cry, so now the car is nearly done cosmetic wise and just waiting on a front screen and a new front bumper reinforcement and it will be done.

Now for the turbo and gearbox conversion.
But for now here is some pics of where I am at the moment and for those that might be the slightest bit interested the colour, it is DuPont Fleet white but is a very bright white







So I'm happy with my progress and I'll have new pics up with the cooler and turbo installed as well as the front bar and the screen with the vt window rubber.

Also those reading this, I'm after a VL turbo auto computer (for the moment) and turbo injectors.

PM me with any interest.

Plus fitted up the rear trims above the bumper-ettes?? (spelling), and fitted road worthy springs in the bum...as you can see looks little gay wif them in it, but rest assured they will be the first thing out when it's all legit!!
