yeah man, i wasn't complaining about the price. i've got a set of calais seats to go in it next week after theyve been cleaned, so should make it a little more comfortable.

im also gunna paint the rims a slightly darker silver, cause the paints starting to flake off.

Hey All, thought I'd let you all I've got my hands on an L67, so it looks like this conversion may happen a little earlier. Might have to buy a cheap car that I can drive around while I'm doin all this. But it'll all be worth it in the end.

I'll make sure to take plenty of photos of the conversion for all to see.

Heres a few pics of the engine thats going into the VR and the engine bay, how it looked last weekend.

Everything going well the stock engine will be out tomorrow, so I can clean up the engine bay, and have the new engine in by Sunday night, then I can get all the accessories, fuel lines, aircon, wiring etc done during the week after work. Again, everything going well :D

EDIT: Updated with more photos
