VH SS
hey Pauly, post some pictures up so we have something to work with
Some more info on the car would be handy too. Like what size engine is it ? Is it an auto or manual ? What is the condition of the engine ? Does it run well, or need attention ? Rust ? Is the suspension worn out or in reasonable condition ? Standard springs, lowered springs ? etc

When you say you want to 'do the car up', do you simply want to restore it back to good condition, or are you looking at some performance upgrades etc
There's a link to my VH in my signature, check it out if you want, might give you some ideas. You'd be surprised how many things you can do on a budget if you are willing to put in the time, effort and use the old noggin' ;)

Nice fine mate! Got any wreckers around there, just ring around see if they have anything. Will probably want an arm and a leg for it but...

LOL, Ari's just bummed cause he's looking for exactly that, a nice body/shell of a VH (doesn't need a motor) and swap his VK's engine/running gear into it!

For $400 mate that looks like a pretty good buy. Just browse all of the local classifieds and forums becuase im sure someone would have a 202. As for the respray why not just touch it up with a spray can? Find out the original colour, go to an auto store and buy the good touch up paint and paint it by hand. Will look 1000 times better.
