    well this is the new ute
    picked it up today for $10,500 with rims and spring
    traded in the tata as the head and turbo was just about gone
    although it does have 275,000km on the clock

    bit ruff but ill tidy it up
    getting polished next week and guards need rolling
    repaint the dash trim as they have marks and stains on them
    need to fix a little dent on the left guard

    and thats it
    enjoy

    well serviced it today
    new oil and filter
    new plugs
    new air filter
    detailed the interior
    currently polishing it (pics before polished)


    the dash surrounds has a few scratch marks and a air freshner stain
    so i will take them off at some stage and prime them then paint them
    thinking either gun metal grey or black
    thoughts>opinons......?

    also going to get seat throw over covers eventually

    still to remove number plate surrounds
    take the Lh splash sheild out and push the dent out with out cracking it
    take head light protectors off and clean them.

    Hey man nice ute...

    Looks shiney even before the polish!! should come up a treat,

    For the interior I rekon gun metal grey.. with a nice coarse flake in it, loads of clear too...

    Are the door trims faded/marked where my arm normally rests up the top??
    How can you fix that if they are? a good clean or something?

    And maybe a quick detail in the engine bay!! a bit dusty in there...

    But all in all a real nice ute.. did you end up selling the VL??

    cheers mate

    yer im leaning towards gun metal grey but satin,
    when my mate painted a mates vx surround with ppg clear it was too shiney and causing too much glare

    nah the door trim up top in that pic isnt worn it just the angle of the pic which is giving the worn effect,
    yer engine is clean now, looks better then the dusty effect but hey should see the vs's motor now thats dirty a little

    ill get a pic soon now that the out side is all clean and what not


    nah the vl wont be leaving me any time soon or infact proberly ever:p
    this was a replacement for for my tata ute which had a blown head and turbo on its way out
    traded it in plus $10,500 for this ute, not bad fine and price

    Ahh ok, good point with the glare, didnt think of that, a satin would still look the part but..
    Bloody pics have a way of stuffing around with the looks of things hey, thats good its not faded, (havent seen any newer commy that they have but...)

    Cool you got the engine bay clean, as I was writing the message, I was thinking my engine bay probly looks dirtier than that!! did it a while back, but will most likely need another go over next service.. or when I can be bothered!

    Thats good to hear the VL aint going anywhere soon/ever.. like my VH, I have big plans to build it up to a nice hopefully daily streeter.. when the cash permits..
    Im going to have to check out your build up/thread on the VL looks like a beast,

    And damm thats a nice price!! if I could find one that cheap I'd swap/trade + cash the sedan!!
