Hey guys and gals just like to share what im building, the car is a Vl SL . im the second owner, bought this car last august deceased estate, the first owner was a edlery man and won it as a price, when i first went to look at the car it had louvers,spotlights.mudflaps, just full orginal. interior was mickey but it had a fairly faded body, so its currently going under a lot of changes, so far its been stripped and gutted. its going to be turned into a replica BT1 but no turbo ,will be having a efi 304 ,running a high rise manifold and a holley,basic setup running a 286 cam,. turbo box and stally . so nothing to crazy

hope everyone enjoys this thread ,

cheers

Yeh that's fair enough, about a year, it will keep you occupied, that's mainly why i wanna do one, its just as much fun as building the car as driving it haha

well if that's your first time spraying, you would want to be happy with the results, from what you have done it looks clean as. very impressive :thumbsup:

Yeh thats good to know, hardly any rust, save you alot of time and effort haha
