    What vn parts could bolt onto a vl? I Know about the springs and front struts but do the brakes and hubs fit on the front and rear? What other vn parts have been fitted?

    the v8's fuel tank can be fitted(90Ltrs tank) but not sure if it straght
    the rear brakes can be used to make the vls rear have disc,
    the motor fits in the engine bay of a vl :p

    according to something I saw, the VN was grafted onto the VL floorpan, which was widened 1 and a half inches
    are the wheels further apart? is the track wider?

    well when people fit vn axels to a vl you have to get the axels shorted by 30mm or you wont be able to fit bigger rims then chasers

    VNs don't have door pods, not even on the calais and SS. The door pods were introduced on the VR.

    I own a VP, I know.

    Well excuseeeeeeee me :bow:

    I'm glad you own a VP, that's really terrific for you, so much so that i'm glad i don't own one.

    :w00t: Kids, look for the VR/VS for the door pods .....

    Grow up dude. I was stating a point, you got it wrong, not me. Door pods on a VN :rofl:

    I was actually looking in here to see if there was any parts I could transplant from a VN/VP to my girlfriends VL.

    vn discs brakes do bolt on to vl drum axles and all you need is a disc brake sealkit and a slight straighten out of your brake lines and adjustment of hand brake. it has been done many times before buy people with vl's and now me:dance: .
