    hey guys. i've been following the forum for a while but i thought i'd show you a few pics of my early girl. she's a vb sle with a vn 5ltr t700 and vlt diff and 90ltr fuel tank. like the rest of you i'm still working on all the little bits and pieces to get it to where i want it to be. since the photos were taken i've added a 2" reverse cowl scoop, vb bonnet mould and badge, drop tank, rebolstered the two front seats and re-carpeted. the plates are for sale (as its not a 310 pack) so if you are interested drop me a line. i hope you enjoy the pics

    Actually I've looked at the photos again and i've changed more than i thought. The bumpers now have correct overiders, the tailights are now NOS vb items. I am chasing correct rear vents and headrests. The side mirrors will probably stay though. Ahh the list goes on but the fun is in the hunt, is it not!

    Very Nice. Are you going to fit the side bumper strips? Any photos of the engine bay and the interrior? What engine was in it originally? Pete

    i'm reluctant to fit the side strips as they look 30 years old, I do have an aftermarket strip but i know as soon as i hang it ill find an original! just waiting for the time and good weather to take updated photos. this weekend looks ok, see how we go. The original engine was a blue carby 308 so it was obviously changed before i got it. It will never win a show n' shine but I enjoy it. Thank for looking

    The current headrests are vk brock size (half the height) which i want to replace with originals. Ill try and get those photos up this weekend showing the drop tank, lights etc. Thanks for your comments guys.

    While the engine is away being machined for 355 stroker I've jumped into cleaning the engine bay up and scraping the underneath which will be repainted and re tared respectively. As much work as it's been it's been just as rewarding. The car is not going to be any show piece but there's nothing wrong with it being tidied up and the engine coming out was the perfect excuse! I hope the pics are ok.
