1971 HQ Kingswood 202 and Trimatic
-lowered 2 inches with King Springs (i didnt want to get ridiculous and have to drive diagonally over speed bumps- i want to actually drive it)
-nolathane bushes throughout
-aftermarket sway bar (not sure of brand)
-upgraded front drum brakes to disc brake front end with v8 booster (taken from statesman)
-18'' CSA rims
-stock red 202 with extractors and 2 1/4'' exhaust
-exhaust cut out (basically a butterfly valve controlled by a switch I wired up that opens the ehaust up just behind the extractors and it's LOUD!!!
-a full resto respray which saw most of the car stripped back to bare metal, whole front end, doors and all glass and rubbers came off the car and sprayed in 'Crunch' which is a VE Commodore Green and done at Focus Prestige Motor Body Works at North Wyong
-chrome strip along the sill and around the wheel arches removed and holes welded up
-side and boot badges removed (shaved)
-inside of doors, and other panels coated in rust proofer
-lots of money spent at Rare Spares getting new grilles, mirrors and many other odds and ends including a clackson horn hahaha
-i have an draw through turbo setup that i plan to put on soon... it consists of a t3/t4 ebay turbo (cheap to replace if things go bang or it doesnt work out) and a sidedraught Weber carb i need to rebuild, inlet and exhaust manifolds, adapters and gaskets.
Hope you all like it so far... My future plans for it are to work on the trimatic so it can handle the extra power, put a stally in it with a shifter on top. Put the draw through setup on and work the 202 up a bit with all the "go fast bits" so she makes some decent power but for now i'd like to just run low boost on the stock motor. Hope to have the turbo on it within a couple of months.
