ST1LO's VG ute, now with added rego!!

Hi, my wife has been on at me to get a ute. chances are my friend had a VG for sale in a not so complete state.
Now this is my first Holden let alone a Commodore so bare with me while i make a few mistakes (im sure i will). I'll also put some pictures up shortly.
My aim is to turn it into a nice clean ute while also being able to tow my other car around, oh and not forgetting an area for the puppy's.
Recently picked up a VS Equip for parts and dragging home a VS ute thats been in a big front ender (parts car also).
Any tips would be appreciated =p

Just swapped the carpet and the bench seat from it into the VG while using the drivers seat from the Equip as it was in better nick.

Been working hard on this one lately.Replaced lots of parts, radiator cap, serpentine belt, oil/oil filter, air filter, plugs, leads, fuel filter, converted the coils to VS and the fuel pump died so thats from a VS also.
Trialed the VS front and modded the rad support to suit.
Lots of other things have been done too, ill update with more pics tomorrow maybe.

yeah, get it running without the engine light on lol. Nah not much to be honest, have an exhaust there ill be fitting.
Mainly aiming for handling as the wife will be mostly driving it, what are the chances of fitting the VS front struts in it?

the shock diameters are different, VS is slightly thicker where it mounts in the top hat.
anyone have any idea how to combat this?
