    I've spent quite a bit of time detailing my VXR over the past few months... bits and pieces here and there....

    I'll just dump some pictures in here and see what you think so far

    Painted top of engine - colour coded












    Then Fitted a Carbon Fibre cover plate to protect my ABS Module from Water Ingress (bonnet vent)

    and colour coded my bonnet pins...

    Then sent off my engine bonnet hardware to be chromed...

    Then removed my bonnet liner and re-dyed it back using upholstery spray paint. Worked a treat and its come back like new. Really nice.

    Vauxhall didnt sent me enough new bonnet liner clips, I'm four short, so will have to order four more tomorrow

    Oh... and tarted up the carbon plate with some graphics

    Engine looks superb, subtle wins every time, not like the heinous red/blue job's normally seen.

    Thanks guys

    Got to fit the new brakes front and rear which should tidy up the wheel arches perfectly.

    Then get the wheels refurbed properly and she'll be nearly good as new.

    Just then considering a front end (or whole car) respray to get rid of the stone chips and bring it back to A1+ condition
