    Default Opel Vectra Restore^Upgrade

    Hello everyone.
    I am from India and i recently got keys to my dad's 2003 opel vectra c.

    The car was standing in garage since past 8-9 months.

    I had always love for opel cars and i adored vectra since the very first day she arrived.

    As i finally got the car i wanted to make sure to make it perfect before my college re-opens.

    The car was in mint condition till one day my stupid driver badly banged the car(around an year ago).

    The new rear and front bumpers were damaged and being in a country where there is no official support for this car any more i had to get the bumpers plastic welded. Though i ll soon be ordering some kits once i have enough credit.

    As of now in the past month (since i got the car) i got my car serviced from the Porsche service center.

    Installed new stock suspensions/brakes/link rod/bushes/wiper motor etc from the chevrolet dealership.

    While the process my ignition barrel got jammed including the steering lock so i had no other option to get it drilled out. Still in the process to figure out what exactly to order for my ignition barrel.

    As of now i definitely need to make this car amazing and a head turner again (though it still is a head turner as there are only 300 vectra c's in india) lol.

    Right now i have ordered stanley hand stitched leather seats and am waiting for it to be up in my car.
    The seats costed me £600 aprox incl labour charges and door trims. The seats are made of pure leather.

    The doors have been damped using melly mat and stinger damps.

    I ll be requiring your help guys to help me restore my beloved car.

    Here's a pic ( i ll be uploading more soon)



    thanks
    Jyot

    PS-sorry if posted in wrong thread

    haha..be it VX or opel...its a vectra.

    and secondly... can anyone suggest me a store/website from where i can procure the body kits (front and rear bumper)

    Basically need body kit for daily drive. roads here arent "european" roads. so need something with a good ground clearance.

    thanks
