    Default Gsi Project Thread

    Thought i would show everyone my project thread. My aim is to be a little bit different but whilst looking subtle with some well choosen mods.

    I've spent alot of money on the vec from the start as i bought a Gsi that needed a lot of attention, and things just kept going one thing after another

    Heres the car when i first got it, came with 19s but they were cracked and buckled.






    The clutch went soon after i got it so that got done, luckily by the garage i bought it from after a moan, then i needed new wheels to replace the 19s, i choose some 18s.





    Then a trip to the bodyshop to get the vec cracked rear bumber repaired and resprayed, also got the vxr diffuser sprayed too then debadged it as soon as i got it home





    Then decided that the engine bay needed a bit of tidying up.
    Before.








    Then went carbon wrap mad







    took them all off as the heat peeled the vinyl so decided to paint it all instead.







    Then a bit of headlight correction







    Then a trip to Kmans place to get the vec lowered 45mm and my new drilled and grooved discs and pads fitted





    Next i turned to the interior, and anther trip to Kmans to have the interior bits painted white with a flake.




    Then after, clutch, cambelt, water pump, driveshafts, cracked hub carrier, and various other bits and bobs i lost the love and decided to sell it, and thats more or less how it stands now. Although i have decided to keep it i just get rid of it . Although now my CIM unit has gone .

    Few pics after a machine polish (Done after it was lowered)








    So thats where im at now got a huge list of mods to do next

    hope you enjoyed
