Just a few shots of my brothers EB we worked on over xmas. We put it in the shed and gave it a re-spray and colour coded the bumpers, mirrors and side strips.

About the car.
Engine - AU VCT 4ltr (no mods)
Gearbox - 5 speed manual (was auto)
Suspension - King springs
Exhaust - Pacemaker extractors, 2.5 inch exhaust

Future mods include an ED XR front, ED XR LSD, new interior and new rims.

Thanks for the comments it was hard work but my brother loves the end result. There is a few things I need to fix with the paint for him but over all it's an improvement on what we started with.

Looks really good mate. I'm very partial to that colour and had my fair share of painting cars! I think you have inspired me to paint my bonnet on the wagon.

Are you still running the stock ECU?

Looks real nice! Can I ask what color that is? To my crap eyes it looks like C2 Regency Red (EL) or G5 Cardinal Red (ED). I ask as I am interested to know what the paint cost and what you used.

Cheers
RD

If it was my car the repeaters would be the other way around but I can't change my brothers mind.

Yes, that is a really nice finish on the car.

I like the wheels that are on there now. What sort of wheels is he considering changing too?
