    Wow, its different but I like it!!  Mate off the gun that looks pretty bloody damn good.  Colour is such a personal thing anyway, as long as you like it.

    Not sure if you have done the LS conversion before, I did a write up a little while back summarizing what I had learned doing mine, not sure if its useful, here’s the link http://www.commodoresplus.com.au/forums/topic/vrvs-ls-engine-conversion-general-information/

    Keep the updates coming :good:
