    Vehicle : Vectra C Prefacelift.

    Trim : "Elite"

    Engine : 2.0dti

    Year : 2003

    Mileage : 130,000

    Default Spikeys Vectra C

    I bought the car from a lady who has clearly not given it much attention, the car was filthy inside, lots of things broken, exterior is quite clean with no rust but a few marks here and there and loads of stone chips and its missing clear coat of the mirrors and a bit on the rear bumper.

    Other than that it's a lovely Ultra blue metallic paint with pretty much everything stock. The car is going to be my base for mods. And I already have a few things planned out on how its going to look like when finished.

    Things that need to be done straight away:
    x4 Discs and pads all around
    x2 Rear callipers as they are leaking
    Thermostat
    Wiper mechanism(done)
    New battery(done)
    Right fog light needs a new reflector and bulb holder


    My Plans:


    Exterior:
    -Debadge front and rear(done)
    -Black wrap on roof(to cover up the scratches the previous owner left, probably with her handbag)
    -HIDs 6K (on the way)
    -Purple Fogs
    -LED tail lights
    -Tint Windows and rear lights
    -LED Licence plate lights and position lights (Done)
    -Coiovers(on the way)
    -Alloys(Looking at 18" BBS CH or LM)
    -Painting Headlights black inside(done)
    -Dark indicators

    Interior:
    -Full valet ASAP(done)
    -Tablet as head unit conversion(done)
    -LED mod
    -Leather seats Transplant
    -Steering wheel replacement
    -Carbon fibre wrap on few parts

    Under the hood:
    -Tuning box
    -Intake
    -Straight through exhaust

    I know, im gonna get a double fascia adapter and get that tablet in there properly so it doesn't look so out-of-place.

    No no, its just a wheel cover because the previous lady owner must of been a angry maniac sticking her nails and rings into the wheel and taking chunks out of it. :S

    Thanks man, stay tuned for some proper mods soon

    Was not very hard, Some trial and error with breaking up the sealant which is pretty tough but eventually it gave way.
