    Yes, the title is correct. Saw a VL Berlina (white) ute up the geelong rd, I had to look several times to see I wasn't seeing things...

    Has anyone else seen such? The job looked very professional, and i would say very OEM...

    Anyone know where this can be done?

    Noice!!!

    The one i saw was in average-ish condition but straight, with the ute side walls, tailgate, rear lights all together, looked like it rolled out of the factory with its stocky rims ;-P

    Yeah the second one is so obvious that it was a wagon. The tonner looks mint though.

    In S.A. it's not needed ( kind of ) basically if you want to drive in fear of defect you don't worry about engineers cert's or passing through Regency ( S.A's match to a RWC but you only need one if your defected or wanting to legalize a heavily modifed car ):thumbsup:
