    Vehicle : Vectra cdti estate

    Trim : Get a

    Engine : Dirty diesel

    Year : 2006

    Talking more engine bay detailing

    as the battery cover finish was not the best i decided to re-doo it, but this time i brought some primer filler to reduce the textured finish as much as possible, while doing this i had a few idea's and started to play again, painted the oil filler-header tank-washer bottle cap's & dip stick pull a bright flame red to contrast with the other 2 colour's i was using that are moonland grey and star silver, also repainted the fuse box cover and then had a play with overlaying 2 decal's i had lying around, wasn't too sure about this but again i was impressed (battery cover cover's it just in case it turned out shyte....)


    ( and yes it is brighter than the engine cover but the laquer wasn't completley dry when i fitted it all back on but i couldn't wait any longer...)










    so what do you think ????
