first off here is the back ground for the car will as far as i know anyway
it is a white VL sl with a rb30 and manual 5 speed. the car was stolen off the pervious and it slid it to the gutter bending the panhard rod so the left hand wheels was hitting the guard. so the thives dump it and run. so the old owner got it back and just left it there for 18 months with out fixing it.

they i track down the owner and ask him if he want to sell it. he said you can have it for $500 but i want to tack out the cd player 1st so the deal was done.

a good mate of mine is doing up has calais for the drift up here in darwin and had just fitted a white line adjustable panhard rod and gave me his old one. so we fitted that which pull the arse end back in place and drop the battery that was in it after it had be on carge for a few days, and turned the key and it run like a dream even on the 18month old fuel. so after a few lap around the block i parked it up and start to have a good look at it and see what it needed.
