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!!
