Hi there,

Yes, I have just heard about VL Projex. Apparently they have VL Commodore Wrecking. If you have parts you need that requires a mechanic, they can have a mechanic repair your vehicle at $33.00 per hour.

Cheers

I visit VL Projex on a regular basis. Clint and Jimmy are great guys to talk to - even if your from interstate - they have no problem sending parts anywhere.

Prices are standard wreckers prices - however its a good place to start looking for Early Model Commodore parts (i think they get in the odd VT or so aswell).

last time i was there they had a vl turbo motor and box for 2000. might have even been full conversion with computer. i cant remember if it had turbo and crap on it for sure but i remember thinking to myself how it was such a good price so it may have had turbo and injectors and stuff on it.

Yeah they wrecked a turbo wagon, the reason the motor and box was so cheap was because it was a non-turbo box behind the turbo motor. Motor, computer, etc. was all genuine though.

Fantastic place, went in there today to buy a the plate for between my tail lights, he not only had one but chucked a bracket on it for me. Lovely chap, will be going there for most of my needs including (most likely) a manual conversion.

A+ service.

VL Projex Pty Ltd

Hi all,
Just an update on VL Projex, the business has been sold with the new owners (hubby and myself) taking over in about a week to start trading for the new financial year (1 July).

Over the coming weeks we will be settling into the business and will be offerring auto trimming (interiors) as well as the parts sales etc (Hubby - Eddie- being an upholsterer/auto trimmer).

We look forward to being able to provide a quality service to all.

The business will remain at Unit 3 & 4, 3 Jacque Court Lawnton (off Paisley Drive) and the phone number will remain the same 32851922.

At present the business trades six days per week. We are considering offering an "open by appointment" service on a Sunday as we live locally to the business. Please give us some feedback on whether this would be of interest to anyone.

Cheers
Kirsty and Eddie

If you are still waiting on parts give Eddie a call on 3285 1922. There are some items around with names/numbers on them that have never been picked up so you never know they could be what you are waiting on.

If not we may now have what you wanted in stock.

By way of an update for all............... We are now up and running and restocking our parts. We stock parts for all commodores and some early holdens as well as being able to source a huge range of after market parts for all makes and models.

Trimming materials are now there also so the trimming services are available (i.e. Seat recovering etc) we also do headlining replacements from $110.

Email contact is vlprojex@aapt.net.au or call 3285 1922

Cheers
Eddie and Kirsty
