Well here's the build of my ss

Well the storey is i bought it just over a year ago front damaged (previous owner hit a pole) with a blown auto box box stuffed bushes and just looked like a heap of ****. got it home and it needed new tyres alternator new front end as it had a bunkie arse front on it got it over the pits ant way here's some pics as it was.
day i got it


Later on during that day

well then it was time to take it to the pits and get regoed it passed with no problems so it looked like this for a few months after that

then after about 4 months of looking and a yellow sticker later i found a proper vnss front the same colour as my car so wet and got it then it went to this also converted it to manual some time through here.

After that i was looking through my shed and found a set of fog lights i bought for my old vq stato and never fitted so then it went to this a few weeks later

and then the alternator died so was on a tow truck home and new fitted

Well got the shiny new alternator fitted and left it in the shed for a few weeks had no need to drive it then came a saturday night me and mates decided to go out cruising then something bad happened had an engine bay fire. so yet again was on the back of a tow truck

the tow truck driver was a legend rang so many tow trucks to be told to #### off basically and even to be left on the side of the road for 6 hours with all the windows stuck down due to no electrics caused from the fire. rang midland towing he was there in 15 Min's.
any way after that could not find a 5ltr engine loom any where so me and dad made our own after 3 weeks of searching.
so finally back on the road. i found out about a track so off she went to the track day



then it was time for new grill and new rims and here's how she sits today

next plans are
High rise super charger
lower
custom boot install
respray

Yeah nice work mate. Get it back looking pretty stock, but real clean and styled. Huge fan of VN SS's.

What else are you planning for it?

Got a few but there older shots and as for all the work yea done it all with me and a few mates other wise would have spent double on it. future plans just keep restoreing it really and maybe lower been toying with the idea of adding a turbo but unsure.
interiour shot not that clean any more and now manual but will be geting it cleaned up again soon gravel driveway means alot of dirt gets evrey where on it

I had just put a brand new alternator on it and what i didnet realise when i fitted it was it had a nut loose inside it well that caused the loom to short circuit and go up luckily me and my mate got the bonnet popped and used wet sand to get the fire out.
