Hey mate fu**in nice car buddy. I have a Vh slx 4.2 in morning blue totally original and love her! Can I suggest if your going to keep the mudflaps on your baby which I think look nice, try and get the original GM ones for the rear. They are rare as hens teeth, took me many months going to wreckers searching but finally found them as they go on ebay for extremely high dollars :( have you thought about putting the genuine over riders on her? Mate, congrats on your rare find....Cheers Andrew

Hey buddy! Thanks heaps!
Sounds like you've got a nice ride there yourself! Yeah a very good friend of mine has a pair of good rear original GM mudflaps for the rear, So im set for that shortly!

This vh wasn't optioned with the over riders so im going to leave it that way, But personally ive never really liked them unless its something like a vc brock that have them :)

Pulled the vh out today for a bit of a run and to keep the battery happy. Gave it a quick clean and ready to give it it's first polish :)



Also stripped back the white venitians and painted them satin black


Slowly slowly getting things done! :D

VH SS
very nice mate, if I couldn't have found a SS, my next choice was a blue/silver SL/E.
Nice to see such a good example of an unmolested SL/E and a 5oh at that! Awesome cruiser. Whatever you do, don't change the front turn indicators to clear VK ones....
Does the A/C work ?

Haha no there staying orange thats for sure! :)

Yep! even the a/c works no worries! Only need to do a heater core, and fix up a few tiny bits and she's set!

Nice work Matty, geeeesh the paintwork looks stunning already! My Vh slx is morning blue and faded a little over the top so I'm trying to source a good detailer that will give her a good hand polish. Totally agree with Darren, keep those indicator lenses on. Looking forward to more pics with the Venetian and genuine GM rear mudflaps. Cheers Andrew
