    cheers...

    yeah he use to have a vz ss with 6 litre/t56. then he wrapped it around a pole and put the running gear in a vk brock. think the vk is what lost him his license. he had to rope his gf into picking up this car with him lol.

    hopefully hes got all that yobbo retard **** out of his system.... but unfortunately i have a feeling this leopard will never change its spots. telling me hes gonna keep it rock stock is a good sign though

    its here. this is a recessed weld in mount for the fuel sender. need to tap some holes to match the top cover still, and possibly do some clearancing where the hoses come out.

    It appears that in my absence, a wild LSJuan conversion has appeared.
