Im looking for help on my vl i dont know what the first step is to take in doing it up I have allready had a full service done
and dont know what to do next, it is a stock 1986 vl executive, if use can help that would be GREAT cheers
hey man and welcome to JC
first thing you do is a search as this is covered so many times.. there is massive amounts of information on here going on about the VL commo and all troubleshooting.
goodluck with it
be sure to navigate to the RIDE section and post up your commo in there.
dump it .....
Are you on your p's?
turbo conversion if your on your not on p's
if you are on p's buy a stock turbo motor, build that up, when you get your fulls, put the turbo engine in and have some fun,
bottom line, its not worth buying perfomance mods to a standard 6cyl. keep it serviced and running well and thats all you can really do.
First thing I would do is fix the rust under the front and rear windscreens
And definitely take the underlay out of the boot (under the carpet)
cause that shit will rust up your boot when it starts leaking from the rain
rb25 head and 26 intake untill you get off your p's
Is it an auto or manual? If its an auto and you are mechanically minded i would say convert it to manual. Tint the windows if they aren't already, get some nice wheels lower it and keep it tidy. When i got my first VL which was also my first car i pulled the auto box out and converted it to manual got the windows tinted, new mags, lowered it, installed central locking, sports steering wheel and a stereo system. some things are more expensive then others so it depends how much money you have to spend really.
Sorry i didn't read the title properly, thought you meant do it up over all.

man cant find that ride section plz help
Do what I did and make it look cool. Midnight Express on the windows, lowered, 17's, if it looks cool it gives the illusion that it goes faster. Also get a standard K&N Panel Filter for about $100, better than a pod IMO, also maybe some injector cleaner as well?
Roses are red, Voilets are blue, I let off the gas & hear tsutututu!
My VL to VLT Conversion threadOriginally Posted by Troy711
The vl is an auto I have put interceptors with dress trims on and caps on with 245s on the rear and 215 on the front is already low and needs a new paint job and the little bit of rust in the rear boot just under windscreen need's a bit of love but look wise I'm happy with were it is atm just looking for speed and handling and not to keen on tinting the
windows. have put a wood grain sports steering wheel in
And yes im on my ps but it isnt my day car i have an au xr8 for my wrk ute so i dont drive the vl all day every day as it has low ks and the cops were i live hate them and go out of their way to put em of the road stuff em i say they just hate that they dont have one hahah
Sounds like your not on your ps driving an xr8?
