Great write up PROGMH n Paul well done on a mint calais. I still remember my mate taking me to the warrigal rd pizza shop 1 friday nite ages ago after u had been at calder n he was going to get u to take me for a spin as id never been in a fast VL before and i needed that extra push to go n buy/build one myself. u had just got off the freeway n u stopped at a set of lights a few hundred meters away from the pizza shop where we were n we could here u spooling up the turbo the we heard u launch it and then we heard this all mights BANG!!!!!!!! we ran down there to find you on the phone to a tow truck as on the launch ur tail shaft had slit in half!! I was shattered as i was seconds way from going for a spin with u. From that night on i said to my mate i was going to build a fast VL that looked the part! and im pretty shore ive done just that. Just a trans holding me bak from that 10 sec pass now. Cant wait for that 2 speed. haha!

lol the cars heavy man, has a 6 point mild steel cage in it. it weighs heaps! the front seats would help getting it back to a decent weight though.

thanks for all the comments guys, i was unsure how people were going to react to it with this trim, seeming the last one was totally different. but to be honest im way over the big wheels, big trim. im happy with the race spec look!

I just got myself a set of convo pro's going to fit them up without tubbing it. rears are 8.5 3/38. once there fitted (which will take a while) ill get some pics up!

See if i have some shots of the interior, might not.And i can't put it back in atm as the back seat has to go back to the motor trimmers to fit round the mini tubs and all the **** is out to cage it anyway . I have convos aswell..lol

nice work anyway i love it, just needs more boost ,rofl...
cheers
