    Default Today's mods

    Today I have done a few mods to my vectra just thought I'd share

    after reading pretty much all the "how 2s" last night I had a plan of action.

    >first I did the airbox mod
    >second I cleaned out the little tiny filter near the slam panel
    >earthed the engine to the suspension
    >fitted a tuning box and put it on a low sesetting
    and what a difference it maid the car is more responsive and pulls rather well

    if there is any other mods you all now please share.

    Some more caliper painting - only need hammerite. I used a mix of 5 parts silver to 1 part copper to get a 'new metal' look
