1988 vl sl

Hey all,

Just thought I’d share with you all my 1988 VL SL Manual.
I bought it from a young bloke a year ago and have slowly been changing everything to bring back a more stock look but still with a little bit of personalisation.

Make / Model: 1988 VL SL
Colour: Alpine White over MX Grey
Engine Type: RB30 N/A
Engine Mods: LPG
Power: A million in the wet
Exhaust: Extractors + 2.5” system
Gearbox: MF5
Diff: Drums soon to be disc
Brakes: Standard N/A, turbo brakes on soon.
Suspension: Lovell springs on stock shocks
Wheels/Tyres: 16” VE Interceptors on Kenda tyres
Interior: Calais Series 2


Other Mods:
Tacho dash, Venetians, Tinted Windows, Central Locking, New headlights, A/F Gauge

Future Mods:
New suspension setup – Most likely Superlows over KYB
3” Chrome Dump Tip
LSD
MX7
Turbo conversion
Slimline Plates

When I first got it.

First mod: Rims.

Then resprayed rims. (In Kinglake)

Added a wall for the sub.

After being hit in the rear quarter panel we decided to use the money to respray the bumpers.

Here it is on the Mothers Day cruise. This is currently how it sits.









Any feedback on what I still need to do would be very much appreciated.
Still got 3 months to go on L's and PUMPED.

Cheers,
Borci88.

Gave the car a clay bar and polish on the weekend, came out great.






Boot rust repairs have all been done and Gas is now in.

Gas now needs a tune up and Ezy-Gas has gone bust, so much for its first free service.

New Calais interior got a steam clean and went in last week.



Anddd at the 2010 C4C:






Next up is making the exhaust a little bit louder and a chrome tip, turbo brakes and diff waiting to go on, and a turbo will hopefully be on end of year / start of next year.

Is it running duel fuel or straight gas? Love the clean exterior look. Don't go painting your bumpers and molds asteroid either like alot of people.

Looks good man

I really don't want too, I love it and I added it up one day and have spent like 600 hours on it just last year.

Yeah I came out alright luckily, really happy I didn't have my gf in the passenger seat. It's only valued at $2,200 but I'll try and squeeze as much as I can out of it..



I think my next car will have better brakes..

Sucks but nothing I can do I suppose, I have insurance, the turbo wasn't in at the time.. Started selling a lot of parts, venetians got sold this weekend and heaps more parts to go, getting out of the VL game for some time, I said to myself I'll never get one again but I hear a lot of stories on here where people come back maybe one day if/when I have a lot of money I'll return and be able to spend the money that a VL needs. For now I start to save up and get an R33 most likely, then in future a VL may come, we will see cheers for the kind words guys
