    Cool One good clean and a few photos...

    Gave the car a good going over today, after fitting my new VXR rear caliper. Being the lazy git I am, I wanted to paint my rears blue to match my front VXR calipers, but didn't want to paint the current ones as they've got 95K's worth of brake dust on them. Also, colour match would have been a bit tricky at B&Q...

    I bought a set of VXR rears off the Caveman, but when fitting them at Marshalls in Leciester found one of the bleed nipples spinning in it's thread - not tightening or loosening...

    Obviously couldn't fit it, so left the 2 blue carriers and one blue caliper on with the aim of changing it or painting it at a later date. I priced up a new plain 292 caliper, but again would have been left with painting it so decided to go the whole hog and got Danboy to source me a brand spanking new one from Germany.

    Got it fitted today without too much hassle, and then gave the car a good clean sponsored by Mark at Autobrite...

    Exterior is pretty much finished, and it's going to stay like this now as I've decided to start a new project to buld a replacement for my PC (see my other thread...)

    I was going to get an interior retrim, but after driving an Insignia SRi a few weeks ago I realised just how far ahead of the Vectra it is in all aspects, so I can't make myself spend a fortune on the Signum knowing it won't help the resale value, even though I won't be selling it for quite a few years...

    Enjoy...

































    And just to prove what a small part of the Universe we occupy, here's the planet Venus taken last night with my Dad's SLR camera and zoom lens...

    Thats a Nice Clean Signum.

    I much prefer the look of the facelift lights over my pre facelift.

    Looking truly beautiful Penfold, the whole car looks so well conceived and perfectly executed.
