Well it's all painted and out in the sunlight.
Very happy with the paint finish. Not so happy with my panel work in spots but its a learning curve and still looks 400 times better than it did

What do u think?

Looks ace James.
A credit to you and your mate.

You'll need to match that fast paint with more hp. This bloke just got 468hp out of his VK EFI 202. That's wheel screwing stuff :)

Can't see it having 450hp but should see a vast improvement from last motor. Aiming for over 200hp at the wheels. Won't be happy unless it does that and it should from the new combo.

Top effort, love the colour, can't wait to see the finished product, with the right wheels that is going to look fantastic. I just recently sold our VC Commodore, looking at the pics I am starting to regret it.

This car makes me think about getting into one of these sh!tters as well.
I mean they can be picked up for nothing, look good when done up, ride nice and most the young w@nkers don't get into them anymore as they can get VT etc for nothing so the dickhead stigma has moved to later models.
Hmmmmmmm. Great build this.

Thanks everyone for the feedback.
I have a set of genuine polished VL Walkinshaw wheels lined up for it which should look good on it. Eventually would love a set of welds on it but won't be buying them till I can get some dish under the rear end.

Emu should get one mate. Be good to see another old girl getting rebuilt properly. Like you said they are cheap as to pick up and parts aren't very expensive aswell and are everywhere.

James

It's great to see young people do something constructive in there spare time. It's fine job keep up the good work.
What are you doing with the trim? Are going to V8 when you have a full license? What rims are you using?
I've always had a soft spot for the VB,VC & VH' s I use to drive a maroon VB in the early 90's when I use to be young.
It's young fella's like your-self that keep old fart's going.

You never stop doing sh!t to your car do you? We'll probably see a future car (or even this one) as a feature car in Street Machine 10 years down the track. Top Stuff.

Trim I am just leaving for now. Want it back on the road so I can enjoy it again and I have rego coming up in September which I doubt I am going to make anyway but will do my best to have atleast a running motor to drive to the mechanic with lol.

Wheel wise I have a set of polished VL walky wheels lined up for it.
Would love to get this in the young guns section in street machine once its back which will be a start. And will be back at the track straight away to set some more times and kill some more tyres.

James

Looks good mate. I agree the walky rims would suit well.
Gives me motivation for mine. One more go with the high build then ill wait for the weather to warm up before laying on the colour.
At the rate your going you'll have yours back at the track in a couple of weeks!

Well done son. That's a real credit to you. I'm not going to say "to you and your mate," as you're the one who stripped it, you repaired it, you prepped it and now you'll slap the [Naughty Pottyword]ter back together. Good on you. Yeah your mate coloured it, (I'm guessin he's a painter or has done a bit of painting)but don't let him take the glory for the car lookin like it does in [Naughty Pottyword] hot green.

Slap that bitch back together, and that dirty old 202, get back to the track and rape the bitch.

Hugh.

And go clean that [Naughty Pottyword]ing shed up!

Thanks mate yea he painted it
Wish I had have now so I could say I did it all
I'm searching around for a straight set of passenger doors I can prep an paint and chuck on as the dints still showing in those 2 are giving me the [Naughty Pottyword]s. And the right rear quarter needs some fixing. I'm going to do all that myself. No rush just when some doors pop up.
I'm going to struggle to make rego though (September) so really gotta save every cent I can to get it running first and then put my engine bay dress up stuff in later. And anything else which isn't needed to get it on the road.

Cheers
James
