Here are some pics of my VK
Started off life as:
then it starts:
Didn’t make it to Powercruise last year as planned, so decided to do everthing properly
nice car mate …looks the goods hey …
Some more done, looks like 275s aren’t going to fit
The diff was powdercoated by Nik Nak, they did a great job.
A dolly is getting built for the front end tomorrow, k-frame is coming out, to replace everything, manual rack going back in. Shocks will be getting modified to some 90/10s.
Car outside, im stoked with how it looks.
Stuck some bits on the engine and painted it, ignore the valve covers, they are for painting only. Thinking about getting my sheet metal covers powder coated black.
Dry iced the inside and painted the floor and cage with KBS
Stuck some shiney stuff on, for shiney value:
lookin’ good what size turbo is that 88mm?
off the top of my head its a 75mm, easy step up to an S480 if I so desire
ok sweet as, yeah an S480 would be nice, we run one in the brother’s 2J 😉
I started making up the collector for the street exhaust, unfortunately 4″ pipe wouldn’t fit under the car, so exhaust will be twin 2 1/2″
it would fit, just gotta think out of the box i reckon my mates turbo vl v8 runs a 4inch exhaust setup all the way to the tip
looking good so far tho 2.5inch twin will give you abit better ground clearance tho lol
After a fair bit of amateur panel beating I had the 4″ pipe welded on.
Pretty happy for my first job with the tig, far from perfect but it will do the job.
Some toys turned up:
Dash is done, way more hours in this than there looks
It should all square up as it goes in
got a few free hours on the car today, got some shit mounted
Thinking about deregistering it, won’t see fuck street kms and anna bligh arse fucks me for 2 v8s.
