    Vehicle : Vectra-C

    Trim : SRi XP2 Nav

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2008

    Default OPELISE & OPC Part 2

    Having done the interior I have been progressively been doing the exterior......

    Firstly the rear end.....

    Then the centre caps and calipers.....


    Then there was the job I wasn't really looking forward to doing....thing is I wanted the look so it had to be done.....

    Surprisingly taking the front bumper of was very very easy, but i knew it was gonna get harder......

    Fog inserts out easy enough too.....

    Taking the upper grill assembly apart was a right b**ch, mainly because I didn't want to break it. I've never seen such an over complicated sub-assembly....i was not impressed to put it politely. After an hour or so of tinkering a trying and not really knowing where to start....I decided to get the chrome V off, then the large backing piece followed. Then the grill with the chrome trim still attached....which I seperated last.....phew....I was cursing a little to say the least. Lower grill was straight forward to remove too.
    Well, all back together with new Opel OPC parts, honeycomb grills, colour coded upper and Opel badge and OPC(VXR) lower skirt. When fitting the fog inserts I had a bit of a worry as the trims would not fit due to fogs.........then after a few minutes of.........removed fogs from their front fastened position and fitted them from the rear....which moved them back and all was fine.....phew!!!
    Very happy with the looks, although will loook better once lowered......comments welcome.
