My 1986 HDT Improved VL Nitron

Hey Guys,

As most of you know I bought the Nitron out of the Quokka in late March so just thought I'd throw up a few photos and a bit of info about it.

Its a bit of a pig at the moment, the rear needs straightening as there is a slight fold in the boot floor from when it was shunted from behind. The drivers door has a ding in it and the bonnets paint is pretty average. Apart from that it starts and runs great and just needs a lot of cleaning up.

I've found a fair amount of photos of different Nitrons and not one is the same so I'll have to keep looking as I want to restore it to its original state.

Now its just the big decision do I want to just fix it or go all out and pull it apart and then fix it! I'll be getting my VLCT painted first so I'll have a while to decide. Anyway throw up some comments or whatever.

Cheers,
Oliver.

I just picked up a dirt cheap vl from the local council down here. You can have the car if you want i only want a few bits and pieces namely the calais rims. Other then that my old house mate still has a brand new boot pan and wheel well but he wants $350ish for them.

Some recent pics, I havent really done anything to it since I bought it apart from collecting parts needed but now I'm free of uni until March its going to get some serious work done. Hopefully get it on the streets before summer is over!

Anyway some photos!











Oh and I found this when I opened the airbox, which I'm guessing isnt a HDT job

my rear end on my calais is just as bad as that, but yours had a tow bar by the looks of it - and it didn't help much.

but by the looks of it it's only the rear pannel and the boot floor that's ****ed, so shouldn't be to bad, those pannels are welded in from factory anyway.

keep us updated
