Julian's vl sl

This is my 1988 vl sl manual 5speed, I bought it a little over a week ago, currently has:

15"x7" 'Performance' Mags
2 1/4" stainless steel exhaust
exhaust headers
mildly chipped ECU
Sports steering wheel
electric antenna
custom parcel shelf
aftermarket AC
Berlina Taillights
Berlina Dash

Next on the list is probably a decent Alpine or Pioneer System, then I'm going to look into getting new wheels and tyres, going to get 19" ROH Flares with 235/45/19 tyres I think..
And might be getting a bigger exhaust and depending on how good the headers/extractors are might get knew ones, need a better sound and more power.
Need to get new driver's seat asap though as mine is broken and wobbles around everywhere.

It has really low kilometres, just under 135,000km's really neat inside and out, bit of rust under front windscreen, small dent on the boot, few minor scratches on the rear bumper.







I'm pretty happy with it, although it was annoying 5mins after taking pics trying to start the car and the battery was dead, and without knowing there was an immobiliser trying to clutch start it, and after that failed jump starting also failed so I now have 12months roadside assist with the NRMA, haha.

Thanks, tell me what you all think.

Got rid of broken drivers seat.


And replaced passenger because the ones I bought were both more faded.




Now I need to get the rust under my windscreen fixed.

sweet sl with already a few nice little berlina upgrades, get onto the rust, upgrade your brakes and diff and suspension and you'll have a very respectible and sensible combo.
