    First of all great new site Gary and team.
    I thought I should finally pull my finger out and get up on the forum.
    The current project is a Vs SII Olympic EDT Ute 5L.
    Car has had a full respray in Amazon Mica. The tray has had a spray in liner applied (not that anything will be going in there).

    Full coil overs fitted along with upgraded rotors and Calipers.

    Motor has had a rebuild nothing big just a new cam, seals etc.

    I will be running a Raptor SC 12 psi non-intercooled with Turbo smart plumb back BOV.

    I have had the extractors ceramic coated along with SC, all other engine covers brackets etc. have been powder coated with a rough matt texture.

    Ute will be rolling on 20” Equus Bathurst wheels 235 shoes.
    Diff has had a clean up and is running 3.9s just to give it a kick along, not really worried about economy.

    Engine bay will cop the usual clean up, delete loom, battery etc.
    Just keep it clean nothing to crazy.

    The Ute will be fully engineered so I don’t have to worry as much about the local lads. (Yes I know peoples thoughts on this but horses for courses).

    Interior will be getting a clean up with some WM Caprice leather seats and some colour coding to match.

    New plates have been ordered ready for completion later this year.

    Anyway let me know what you think Cheers.

    That is a really clean looking ute. Good on you for going the engineered route too.

    What spray in liner did you use? I used the raptor liner, such a good idea as let’s face it a vs tub is ugly a fuck and the liner hides a lot of the bumps n panel gaps etc

    Will be interested to see how you find the Raptor charger. What coilovers are they? I don’t recognize the blue and black colour scheme? Should be a fun street ute when completed. Assume staying auto? Any work happening to trans?

    Yeah from what i have read and seen on cars they seem to be a good entry point into SC.

    The coil overs are K Shock, not the best brand but for how far this ute will be driven I’m happy with them. Staying auto i figured its easier to cruise and i don’t think i will have an issue lighting the rears, no work planned on the trans but we will see how long it lasts lol

    From what i can tell its stock but time will tell.

    The extractors are Pacemakers picked em up super cheap ( gotta love gumtree ) and had them coated by Pro Coat they came out really nice.
