    So That was back in 2010.
    Fast forward a year and I decided the sunroof (rusty and dead rubbers) needed to be removed from the statesman. It’s finally got a new roof on it and is at the painter getting resprayed and welded up.

    I was lucky to pickup a complete set of fog light from the wreck I chopped the roof off. The L67 was  bought originally go in a manual exec I have, but the paint was getting crappy so dad suggested I find a better car. As it turns out I should have bought a VS stato, as the VR to VS has been a bit of a pain.

    Anyway, old roof cut off. New one welded on and a cheap pearl paint job latter.

    Still needs (2 years latter) a proper polish but first need to put it back together. Also need to change the heater core. The lower body kit went on at this time. (I think it’s a set of VQ lips as the don’t fit that well, I bought them second hand.)

    First up, better pic of the back end

    I’m using a Redarc BCDC 1220 DC/DC charger isulator.
    Batteries are Power Sonic PG-12V40 FR. 40amp hour

    My Original plan: unfortunately wouldn’t work, lot enough height for my car fridge (full false floor) and lack of flat surfaces for the hinges.

    How I ended up installing them: Still need to neaten up the box and wiring (Box Mk I)

    Yes I took the 17″ rims off as they where getting a lot of camber wear and I didn’t want to stuff up a fresh set of tyres.

    Power switch and circuit breakers.

    12v plugs and gauge switch

    Battery Gauge and fire extinguisher bolted to the sub.

    So this kinda happened over Easter 2014. Everything still needed to be hooked up but it’s something happening and it was in it’s home.

    Me Jacking the gearbox & cross member up to the body.

    So 9 months latter the bloody thing finally runs.

    When I first put it in something in the auto didn’t line up properly and made it stupidly tight. So over Christmas 2014 we pulled it all out again and slipped the converter on again and it all lined up this time.
    Patch looms needed to be made to mate up the VS ECU to the VR’s body. The first memcal didn’t work, the second one is miles out on the speedo but it does run.

    I think I’m down to the last few bits before I take the car to Regency to get the conversion signed off.
