CHRISSO'S 1979 VB COMMODORE!!!!!

Here are some pics of my ride i have been building the last 12mths. I purchased the car stock as rock in original condition from a elderly lady who could not drive anymore!!!!
It was a perfect starting point to transform.. Work began straight away striping the old girl down and prepping for paint...

ALL WORK HAS BEEN CARRIED OUT BY MYSELF IN THE GARAGE!!!!!!!!!!

1.PAINT & BODYWORK
The car took 3mths of sanding and smoothing all panel seams inc,BOOT,DOORS,ENGINE BAY,I also decided o paint the car myself and had never done it before ..... Colour is MIDNIGHT BLUE!!!!!

2.ENGINE & DRIVETRAIN
The motor is a stock 308 (for now)and backed up by a TURBO 350 gearbox and stage 2 shift kit!!!
Diff is a 10bolt item with disc brakes fitted

3.SUSPENSION
The suspension consists of Pedders superlows front and rear.Upgraded swaybars front and rear,
adjustable panhard bar too.

4.INTERIOR
I have fitted out my interior with black suede and autotechnica bucket seats with RPM race harnesses,B&M megashifter.Kenwood stereo,4"speakers front kick panels and 6" rear parcel shelf,5"monster tacho and volts and water and oil temp gauges.I also have a Alloy half cage fitted aswell.

5.WHEELS
My wheels are currently a set of 18" SPEEDY INFERNO rims with 245/40/ on the rear & 235/40 on the front!!



HERE ARE SOME PICS HOPE YOU GUYS LIKE MY RIDE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!!!!!

Do a photoshop with it man, and see what it looks like. Or get one and sit it on the bonnet before you go cutting a hole and putting it on

I trial fitted a hornet scoop on and it looked shocking but i think the chrome shotgun scoop would suit big time.........

I have a second bonnet that is painted black for when i go for a roadworthy so im not too fussed about cutting a hole!!!!!!!

Its going to be scary though cutting into my good painted Blue bonnet!!!!!!ha ha

i didn't think they were street legal at all in sa. i remember reading somewhere it was due to it being too difficult to cut people out of the car in the case of a crash?? i personally think its a stupid reason for it.

back to chrisso's vb, how much of a difference has the roll cage made? has it stiffened up the car substantially??
