    Default Meet victor Vectra....

    Hey all,

    Ok.. Im now the proud owner of a vetra... and here are the photo's to prove it...



























    In addition to ther pics shown here i have sinced clayed and machine polished the full car including a cut, polish, ipa clean and a full ziano P-2 finish. Add to that the sony head unit and SRI spec rear lights and that brings me up to date with the current mods.

    Have potencialy sourced a set of baby 17" Snowflake alloys (oppinions on these on the car would be welcome form all). Needing to decide on springs... I fancy the Eibach Pro's... Does everyone on here rate them for the Vectra?

    Waitging on the clear / white side repaters arriving. should be getting these fitted this weekend.

    It goes in tomorrow for a new timing belt and water pump (it's done 60K+ and is still on the original belt so not taking any chances...

    Going to fit a sub and amp this weekend. Then going to sourvce a set of HID's for the car... As it is only half canbus (i belive that is the right way to put it) what HID's should i go for... Oppinions please!

    And finaly... here's my Astra H... It's the play thing and the Vectra is the work horse... lol...





    And this was the astra after the Turbo blew

    Is the cars name Victor? Mine was called Victor and it kept breaking so I changed the name to Victoria. (Traditionally it is bad luck to call a ship, train, object by a boys name, they are all female, so far its worked!)

    My old man had a Vauxhall Victor back in the 70's. Think he got rid of it just as I was born for a Volvo 164....

    The astra... Well theres a story...

    Background... It's a 1.9 120 8v...

    So first thing was the DMF so off it went to get a new DMF and clutch (no point not changing the clutch while the DMF was out...

    Second thing was the turbo... To fit this it tool severl new banjo bolts, a new intercooler and three turbos before the garage got it right...

    I got the water pump and timeing belt changed also before that went as that is the next logical thing which will go...

    It's running great now... It's the wifes toy... It's dropped, colour coded, carbom wrapped and remapped witht he IPF EDS (would recomend this map to anyone with the 1.9 engine). Its got the usual instide (tints, SMD conversion and VXR wheel etc).

    The vectra (victoria as i will now call her) was to replace a ten year old tigra as the wife is now expecting so we needed soemthing which was big and comfy to work alogside the Astra..

    In the process of trying to do a deal for a set of wheels for it and to try and buy some eibachs.. Revese sensors will be bought this weekend and the sub etc will be fitted properly also...

    modifying cars is an addiction...!
