    Keep it and make sure you have it on you when you go to bali next.

    I have a international grill and it looks removeable from rear of the grill..
    I actually got the grill off ebay brand new and fitted it to my vp although its obviously not an international so was thinking of taking the badge off it and selling it.

    I don't think I would find another grill that's basically brand new... I may just keep it on there for the novelty of it

    Great to hear ones getting restored, Wheels shouldn't be to hard to find as they are just VQ Statesman rims but the centre caps are different and are hard to find. I am not sure if they are the same as VN Calais though. Also good luck with the grille badges.

    I have 2 Internationals both in an average state but hopefully I have the money to restore them as well sometime down the track before I have to sell them.

    there a different size to the VN Calais centre caps, 15mm difference.

    You would happen to have a white n grey versions?? IMO having the pair would be killer both restored to factory specs.

    I gave up to many dodgy pricks in Adelaide stealing and stripping cars. After I heard about Monster's VR Senator I lost interest.

    Anyway your greys one's basically stock, just has a full exhaust, manual and diff gears :p after 10 years off the road it should be off its face by now if you continued working on it

    Thanks for the info about the wheel caps, so the Internationals centre caps are one offs then? Out of the 8 for the 2 cars I have one has quite a few clips broken off and one scratched up one so will need to chase up at least a couple more.

    I actually do have one of each colour car. Almost only had one or none depends how you look at it last week! White one with a factory sunroof was stolen from my folks house and they tried to get the grey one as well but it hadn't been running for a few months as the starter **** itself, didn't expect to ever see it again but the idiot who stole it got blocked in a driveway trying to knock over another house by the owner. The little prick got away with the rear lip spoiler, driving lights and steering wheel I had in there but without the horn pad though but not sure if anything else is missing yet until I go through all my parts ive collected over the years.

    I had the white one for about 8 years and the grey one for about 6. Restore to factory is the plan one day apart from suspension and wheels

    So I know now what you went through when yours was stolen even though mine is far from the condition that yours was in.

    yeah unfortunately there the VQ caps but only the Internationals had the Holden logo and most still get sold as VQ caps even tho they have a different logo which also makes them hard to track down.

    Maybe Stelthy can help you with the spares seeing as he's chimed in and had 3 of everything last time we spoke a few years back. After mine was stolen I sold everything I had, spare full interior plastics, 2 sets of seats, a full body kit plus another complete front bumper and I even had 5 wheels but there all gone now.
