    Default Neve'o - Vectra C SRi 1.9CDTi

    Well its about time I got a diary started so here goes...

    I purchased my SRi a few weeks back but having another car to get rid of meant I could't use the vectra just yet, however this weekend I finally had the insurance changed over and I'm now enjoying my new car.

    Shame the weather wasn't better this weekend because I wanted to give the veccy a good machine polish and wax however due to the rain I had to settle for just a good wash instead (roll on better weather!) there was lots of green stains & dirty in all the hard to reach areas so they got a good seeing too.

    I gave the interior a good going over, hoovered everything and gave all the trim a wipe down. I also removed the un-used Witter twin socket tow bar as I have no use for it -the wiring was hooked into all sorts so carefully removed it all, fitted my irmy tax disc holder & sunglasses holder (I do have the centre roof one but the missus has already claimed it lol), fitted a set of flat blade wipers and insignia washer jets (brilliant combo imo) and I had a set of silvertec indicator bulbs laying around so they went into the rear lights, I also purchased a set of vaux mats, they are a perfect fit and look great!

    Here's some photos:






















    Next jobs to do are fit a new pollen filter, de-badge the boot and fit a boot liner. I also want to do the machine polising when the weather is better, remove the alloys to clean under the archs and seal the alloys with some poorboys sealant.

    Plenty of mods lined up in the future too so watch this space!

    Good stuff bud, i like how you're turning a clean car into an immaculate one some take it for granted but it takes a keen eye to spot the little imperfections and actually do something about it love your attention to detail, or detailing lol.

    Keep up the good work, nice car

    Yeah I like a car to be clean lol, not just look clean at a glance! The roof rail covers & around the boot where quite dirty along with under the window trims so gave them all a good clean, a small soft paint brush with some decent APC works well!

    Looking forward to some decent weather so I can clay the whole thing (lots of spots of tar on lower halfs) and a decent machine polish. Need to look into what waxes work well with silver cars though!

    The weather has been much better this weekend so I got on with the detailing and a few other little jobs!

    I popped into Courtenays after work (handy when you work practically next door lol) and purchased a performance panel filter, before fitting I removed the top cover of the air inlet trumpet and gave the the box a damp good clean to remove various dead bugs and leaf matter.





    Next up was to change the pollen filter, turns out the old one was a carbon filter, still it was filthy so out it came.


    My boot liner also turned up so fitted it in mere seconds, much better!


    The next job was to fit an egr restrictor plate, decided not to totally block it off as I didn't want any warning lights. Before fitting the plate I removed the egr valve and stripped it down, cleaned all the thick gunk and soot off and refitted with the plate in place - no warning lights so can't be bad!





    Next I decided to de-badge the tailgate, not a fan of the massive griffin or the lettering so 30 minutes later it was all gone.






    Then onto the detail, a decent wash, followed by drying, then a machine polish using various compounds and liquids, then sealed the paint with some poorboys XP and finally topped off with 2 coats of collinite. The paint feels like polished glass! Done inside all the door shuts etc and removed a few scratches. This was Saturday over with, Sunday (today) all the wheels came off, the arches got a good clean and the brakes got a splash of silver hammerite. The wheels where then deep cleaned and sealed using poorboys followed by a coat of wheel wax. After having a look at the rear tyres Iv decided I'm going to order 2 new ones as the treads don't match and they only have a few months left in them. I also cleaned the glass inside and out and rain-x'd them, and polished the tailpipe.





    Such a shame the sun was going in when I had finished and ready to take the photos! So the next job is to give under the bonnet a little attention and fit a couple of new tyres.

    Looks great, but IMO it wants lowering to set it off. Clean wheels make the gap in the arches look bigger.
    Wish I had your patience!
