Body Respray

Can anyone give me an idea of how much it would cost to get my VL resprayed?? I am wanting to go from beige to black or silver. Also, how hard is it for a panel beater to change the colour of those plastic panels around the side of the car? Thanks.

EH sedan new rear screens spot on

New EH rear screens have arrived.

The EH Club Vic has been glad to help David Ryan get this venture off the ground.
I have had one fitted to my sedan and they are crystal clear - new no scratches.
There was no trouble fitting the screen with a new Rare Spare rubber also.
The hardest bit was getting the little corner moulds on.
Put your order in now from Dave Ryan.
They are not available through Rare Spares outlets.

They are $250.00 and available in clear or tinted. EH Club Vic Members get a discount price.

VK EFI Wiring

*** Thanks to the Top Lads who put up the Bedford topic line, THANKS ***

Now can any one help me wire up the EFI engine harnes into my Van, I relise that I have ti power it from the BATT via a relay and some wires have to go to the coil and fuel pump... However My Manual has no detail of the EFI side of the wiring.... So Far I have the Engine harnes separated from the rest of the VKs harness... about 30cm back from the computer connector there is another plug with 7 wires... (clockwise from top, Car end of plug) 1 Thin Purple, 2 Thick White, 3 Medium Purple, 4 Thick Black, 5 Medium Grey, 6 Medium Pink and 7 Thin Brown...
Any insight into this would be of great help cuz I am flying blind...
Let me know if there are anymore wires that would need to go places that you know of other than what is on that plug....
Thanks for all your help, Croppy......
PS. Thanks also to sammy for his help so far.. '
