Why oh why would you do something like this to a one of ten car and then sell the original part for as little as $50 :o

I know you could always re-spray another bonnet but I feel like messaging the bloke and advising him to keep it in case he chooses to sell the car to someone who appreciates it later.

They're the same as any other VT bonnet. The guy selling it has actually rebuilt the car from a wreck to almost factory standard. I don't like the monaro bonnet but he has a good reason for it...

Number 10/10 by the way.

Interesting... Was it a write off Frank? It seems to be missing a few things going on your extra photo's (wheels, interior, assorted engine bay parts). Does he have all these things? Would it be possible to return it to factory spec at all?

It was pretty much a write off. He bought it from someone that didn't know what it was as all the original parts had been taken off. I mean everything apart from the motor. It wasn't until he checked with HSV that he realised what he had bought. At the moment the car is far from stock but he has all the parts to bring it back one day. HSV wanted 5k just for the drivers seat, hence the retrim.

Here's his thread on SC...

Hmm if he has all the original parts then you would think he would keep the bonnet. In the end it's his car and he can do what he likes with it I guess. Just not the path I would tread with a 1 of 10 car.
Cheers for the back story though!

The only thing that ruins it now is the bonnet he's keeping.

I'm with you guys too. I like the monaro bonnet though, but as you say, not on a 1 in 10 car.

LOL it is a DAMAGED bonnet every VT has the same one, i had to down grade to a monaro bonnet, by the end of the year it will have a standard bonnet back on it, i i know what the car is and have slowly recovered all the parts from when it was stolen and stripped not crashed.
