Twoslo

Thought id post up my car.

Ive had this for about 2 months now, its is a 5spd BT1 but the previous owner mocked up up as a calais, which i was happy with, til i found out it was a BT1.

Car is painted in harlequin, im no paint expert but its a darker harlequin, and has green prple gold and blue in it. the body is straight as so i was stoked when i bought it home, as was my old man. Has the mandatory 17's on it, lowered a fair bit but isnt too low so that it cant go anywhere.








As for mods, it has:
*GT35R turbo
*Cam(not sure what specs etc. previous owner had it put in)
*Front Mount with 3 in stainless piping all round
*Bigger injectors(not sure what ones)
*38mm External gate
*Catch can
*3in exhaust
*Heavy duty whiteline swaybars front and rear
*Kmac kit
*Short stroke shocks/ heavy duty springs
*3.9 LSD
*Smoothed engine bay
*Battery in boot
*Shaved door locks

Has mandatory stereo gear, and alarm immobiliser also.

Thats all i can think of for now, ive probably left **** off, but ill re post later when i get the time.

let me know what u think of it....

That colour looks more like a modified Standox colour called Daytona Paradise.

Or maybe it's just painted over a different base?

Hey mate I'm sure I've seen this VL on a trailer going somewhere probably to calder it was a while back and I think their was a 4WD towing the trailer ,pretty sure but think it had different wheels then maybe vt gts rims can't remember but was definitely this car had to be.....becuase the paint looked awesome in the flesh ,the photo's don't do justice for the nice paint work on this car......
