    Default My Car

    First off, apologies if this is the wrong section

    Hi all, i am new to the forum, i have made my introduction thread, and i mentioned in that thread i would post a few pictures of the vec, during the week i have bought a few parts and made a few plans, so i decided i would take some pictures today whilst i was going through the process of fitting the parts and implementing plans (well one, so plan really).

    so here it goes

    Vectra first thing this morning pre fettling



    (also pictured, my cat Brian)





    Then i gave a quick wash (very quick btw )



    I then went about fitting the new grill





    and then the side repeaters



    Then removing the griffin and the elegance badges



    I used tar remover to clear the adhesive off followed by a bit of t-cut to bring the paint back up to a shine and remove and minor scratchs





    So that was it, my morning put to good use i feel, i was going to follow up with a proper wash and polish but the rain put a stop to that

    hope you all like it, got a few things to do yet, like change the alloys, cover the plastic wood up inside, tints and maybe lower it, not to mention its due cam belt soon

    but hey! i love the thing, much happier with the way it looks now aswell

    Looks good mate, but where are you gonna put the cam belt? Your profile says you have a DTi, they have a chain

    Only time it needs something is if it gets rattly mate, apart from that it requires no attention

    Looking good so far May I suggest with the money you were going to spend on the cam belt you get some sri rear lights? They would really change the look of the car....

    Looks very good mate.

    I would look for some Sri rear lights now, far better than the orange rears.
