HSV VG #008
Hi there I am new here, and here is my ute im currently working on to replace my very tired datsun ute.

Its more or less a stock v6 5 speed, has 16" wheels, and has just been fully kitted out with nolathane bushes...

The engine goes quite well, the injectors seem to leak down after a while, other than that though it doesnt miss a beat.

Paintwork is crap, it was a tradies ute most of its life, but it doesnt seem to have a lot of dents.

Upcoming things to be fixed are:

- Reokace number plate holder (already got just have to paint)
- replace grille (got an sv5000 one just need to paint it)
- replace all discs and brake pads.
- clean it out, maybe new carpet.
- fit some kind of speakers to the holes in the doors.

- Respray in the future

My other rides include: 2000 model vt series 2, Manual vl calais

Did not realize HSV did the VG's in V6 form, do you know what they put on them different from the stock 6-bangers? But seriously nice buy, welcome to the VG club :)

Cheers guys, a lot of the LS series were v8's 54 in total LS utes were made, im not sure how many were 5L's or v6's though.

The engine appears stock apart from a fairly large quiet exhaust, it does have enough power for now, but I have just picked up a second motor I might have a play with down the track...

Needed wiper switch and a few bits and peices for the interior, local wreckers wanted $85 for the switch, so I have just bought a whole vn S1 exec to strip out for $200 to use for parts, heck will part out everything else from it and hopefully get my money back....
