1993 VR v6 Ute
ok guys been following this forum pretty closely, ton of good stuff here. decided to post a few pics of my first ride. She's a manual vr v6 1993 3 seater, bought it for 2 grand. bit steep but i wanted a car to do up and its was a manual 3 seater....hard 2 get round here.
270000k's on the clock but motor runs great, gearbox is sweet, hsv rims, king springs and 2 inch cat back system. runs really great for an old car all the major mechanicals are done now just asthetics
jobs ive done:
installed heavy duty clutch
put a vs ute fuel tank in, with some modification to the wiring. new breather and high pressure lines
new dash (for 20 bux!!) saves me trying to solder the dodgy connections
put a new high pressure power steering hose in (was pissing out fluid on hard lock), now no more oil leaks
put in a new head liner, thanks to the treads found here
changed coolant & replaced thermostat
installed stereo system

paints a bit ****, but my mates dad is an ex car painter and said he'll do it just for the materials
cheers heres some pics sorry for the **** quality iPhone camera

not really looking for a cop magnet aye. just want a nice clean ute, that runs well and isnt too bogan-y ahah
in saying that i plan to:
repaint car and rims (same colours)
strip down and rebuild engine with my uncle (not that it really needs it )
repaint wheel wells
cai, ss big mouth with k&n filter should do nicely
memcal, heard alot about these chips and for the price why not?
mates got a tacho for me
subwoofer, where it will fit i have no idea
already took the towbar off, but i plan to reinstall it once ive striped the rust and repainted it black

thats about it for now but im sure there will be more to come

99' Series 3 VS S-Pac Ute.
Very nice mate, good starting point... The colour is cool, don't see many VR/VS ute's in that colour....
Love the GTS rims in that grey/black, looks very neat !

nice ute, also nice to see another perth-ite. 2k isn't too bad considering that the VS utes still go for 5k+ with similar kilometers.
