    Default Some pics of my shiney black Vectra

    Gave my Vectra a good clean, wax and polish and took the following pictures on the same day..
















    Black cars are a nightmares to keep clean, but boy do they look slick when gleaming!

    Perfectly standard at present, but thinking about minor mods.. clear lenses, boot spoiler and lightly tinted windows. Possible xenon headlights and lowered suspension in the future. Any suggestions?

    Looking good, dude. as you said, a pain to keep clean but looks stunnin when properly cleaned.

    I'd agree with rushy, think about color coding the plastic skirts - makes a huge difference to how the car looks.

    Cheers for the suggestions, colour coding the skirts sounds like a great idea. Just curious how much wear these are prone to when painted, seeing as they're close to the ground (from stone chips etc).

    JUST DONE MY FRONT LIP SO WILL LET YOU KNOW
    http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=21896

    back a few years when i had a corsa it was purple and had the black bumpers all round i took them off and sprayed them myself
    plastic primer
    colour
    laquar
    good prep is the tool
    and for the 3 years after that it was fine not a single flake i noticed that the front bumper seemed better against stone chips as well

    i would say the side skirts would take mre of a beating tho

    get them sprayed up and get some pics up
    should take no longer than a day or 2 for the side skirts and front
