OK, well I have put some pics up previously in the VN section, but as the project is growing, I figure I may as well start my own thread and update as things change.. Anyway here is the info.

1989 VN Commodore - Not sure what it is (Exec, S, Berlina), but it has full power options, and states it is a limited edition V6.

Engine - Stock
Suspension - Slightly lowered but other then springs - Stock
Body - I think it is the SS kit
Wheels - 18" Rodney Jane Racing Wheels with pretty average tires.

Exterior pics





Some of my old favorite pics



Interior
My white face air con gauges




Just bought this VN HSV Steering wheel.. It is the one I am having problems getting put on tho ...



I am pretty sure you all know what stock interior looks like, so I will spare you those photo's. I am always up for suggestions, so feel free to let me know of what else I can do to this thing. I think the next project is rust repair tho...

Stereo:

1xCerwin Vega 12" Sub
1xCerwin Vega 6" Splits
1xCerwin Vega 6x9's
2xCerwin Vega amps - Not sure of the model at the moment tho
Powered by the Pioneer DEH-P8650

So here are a couple of pics .. The commy doesn't have split seats so you gotta forgive me for the limited viewing...




The bits of orange/red that you see are lights on top of the amp... This would look really cool if the seats folded... :(






The tweater is hidden in the stock speaker pods in the dash. Not much point in taking a pic of them...

Same as the 6x9's... But may take some pics over the weekend

And the deck





Overall sound is pretty good.. Not as loud or as good as the Sonata, but at a fraction of the cost it does the job...

I will try to get some better pics tho.. These were just done in a hurry so I could show what has been done to the car in the past week ...

:dance:

Thanks for the comments guys .. I want to get some newer pic's as all the others are when I had the stockies on it ...

I forgot to mention, but not sure how to confirm it ... The pervious owner advised me that the car had VN SS brakes... So yeah, not sure if that is true or not..

Nice VN man, looks like a Berlina with that door trim :)

That is an SS kit as well, looks good, subtle and classy :yeah:

VN Power!
door trim looks like a berlina, but the material on the seats look like an s pac. no idea what it is
