    3.8 VS Commodore Berlina
    -rear brakes
    -left tail light

    Main needs:
    -new interior

    -rear bumper fix
    -front bumper fix
    -removal of fake hsv decal
    -transmission change
    -rewiring for majority of vehicle

    Go an get them both Dino’d for a start an bring up the power about 80 to 100 rwkw an go from there.
    You’ll love the difference in power that’s for sure.

    Then maybe mess around with getting them lowered for a sportier drive feel.

    hi i recently acquired a '98 VS Royale 2.5 ltr and it has lost all power when leaving an intersection several times, any thoughts would be a big help, thanks. your projects looking good!

    Remove decal with Prepsol! If it’s one of those raised Chrome dipped plastic badges or whatever then some fishing line and the missus hairdryer will do the trick! Just heat up the adhesive behind badge and then take fishing wire flush with the body of the vehicle and create a “sawing” motion back and forth until you get from one side of the badge to the other.
    Clean any residue with prepsol or detergent!
