    Default New Dampers fitted, and grill finished!

    As the Mrs is in hospital recovering from an operation, and little one at dance show rehearsals, I figured I had 3 hours between hospital visits so I fitted my new Bilstein B6 Dampers.

    Then a good friend of mine has modified my OPC grill for me, it now has a Monaro griffin badge and fits just as if it was done from new.

    The OPC badge recess was also removed to keep it cleaner. Although the grill has been finished in Satin Black, the bottom chrome strip has been done in gloss black. Although this may be done in mat silver.

    What do you think of the grill?










    These pics have made me realise how dirty the arches have got after a weekends use! Need to get them cleaned again!(Y)

    Very nice Matt, although it makes the bumper and fog grills look old in the pic even though they are probably new? Have you considered spraying the lower grills to look the same?

    The ride is much better and handling so much better. It has made the car so much more in touch with the road.

    The bottom grills are dirty to be fair. It does all clean up to look the same.
