jacks vlt rat rod build thread

since every one else has a build thread for their vl i have decided to write my own.

its an 86 exec i got off dan89 with a stuffed gearbox and a motor with some prety bad lifter noise.

it has bin said that its a rat rod only because im too lazy to clean it up but i disagree*****

anyway:

make: 86 vl exec sedan
colour: very faded green with drift spec matte black bonnet
motor: rb30e
box: mf5
exhause: extractors and 2.5" zorst
clutch: standard rb25det
turbo: none
injectors: standard vlt
ecu: 3em
suspention: fe2 up front with SSL rears
brakes: vlt with bendix pads
sterio: pioneer deck, kicker 4's up front, pioneer mono bloc with twin mtx thunder subs
rims: black stockies with silver center caps or vy calais 17's
diff: soon to be locked piece of ****
other: calais interior, "shocker" sticker

you may ask why it has a black bonnet - the reason y? it was on the hoist with no front suspention and it had to get removed 2 put another car on there. long story short...an un named individual was drunk and being a 2 post hoist the car rolled forward into the forklift and ****ed the bonnet - enter black drift spec bonnet.



*****
stolen from wikipedia for thoes of you who dont know what a rat rod is and because i want the first post to be realy long

A rat rod is a style of hot rod or custom car that, in most cases, imitates (or exaggerates) the early hot rods of the 40s, 50s, and 60s. It is not to be confused with the somewhat closely related "traditional" hot rod, which is an accurate re-creation or period-correct restoration of a hot rod from the same era.

Most rat rods appear "unfinished" (whether they actually are or are not), with just the bare essentials to be driven.

The rat rod is the visualization of the idea of function over form. Rat rods are meant to be driven, not shown off. Sometimes the customization will include using spare parts, or parts from another car altogether.


i realise it sounds like a piece of **** - it is. its not being built to handle massive skids or look hot. its being built cheap to have a bit of fun in, because i miss having a vlt and because rideing in the rain sux balls
