Cheers Smitty, feared that may be the case.
Hi all, anyone know where I can get a midsection and muffler(s) to suit a VC with tri-Y extractors?
Would like to be able to purchase and bolt it...
Update - got her started now. Really happy. Apparently I hadn't stuffed anything major up. :)

Yes. Wooooooooord min.
I agree, I recently put a crappy set of wheels/tyres on my car temporarily while I painted my good ones. They were fairly new but lower quality...
Whoa whoa whoa. Did you not read that it was the Bathurst Edition? Complete game-changer.
He forgot to mention the nitro..
Nice looking car. I did note that twice you mentioned it has Pacemaker extractors AND after-market headers. They are the same thing mate.
Video is back up. Planning to try a front & rear view split this w/end.
Nice one, sounds good.
Well I'll be damned. Vid's going down.
Easily edited out, but should I be worried?

Yeah was thinking a simultaneous front and rear shown as a split screen vid would be fun. I'll try it.
Cheers. Sorry no pics yet, if I do it again I'll be sure to get one of how I did it.
