We have already started stripping it to start a full refurbishment with my normal quote of "keep it standard"

We have no timeline to completed this project but it should keep us busy.

 

Will also try to keep this thread update of our progress...Its nice to be back  :wub:

Looks like a fun project for .org's premier and most exclusive BFF club.

 

Don't take the chap in the trailer picture's derisory hand gestures to heart. You two keep doing whatever makes you happy; .org has always been an inclusive forum.

 

Do you have anything exciting planned on this build?

Caught your best side... vx will live on with the same love. It's now just a floating chassis as I've stripped it fully

All wishbones removed, rear sub frame will soon be off.. but as normal the left side damping mount has put up a fight, so that will be fun.
