    So I've been focusing a lot of attention on my daily Excalibur lately and have been neglecting the old girl a bit so here goes.
    This is my 1984 VK, number plated BAD_84K for obvious reasons :p.
    Here are some photos of her when I bought her;

    I've spent much time and money upgrading parts, including; struts, shocks, springs, reco lsd diff and modifying the boot.
    But the biggest change on the vk has been the engine bay and my v8 conversion which you are about to see below.

    So after almost three years of owning her and modifying this is how she sits now (more photos to come);

    Cheers for the comments guys!!! :)

    Jonno; Nah I bought it from an old bloke that lived not far from me

    Mad84k; Yeah DIY job, with a bit of help from dad.

    The bay is definitely neat, but not neat enough for me, after the body is done shes being stripped down again for a smoother look on the front support and the firewall.

    With the addition of the engine getting colour coded and more alloy goodies put on it :)

    If the rest of the car comes up as good as the engine bay and boot you're on a winner.:thumbsup:
