    Default Shiney bits

    Im thinking about having a strutbrace custom made and generally dress the engine bay up with shiny/carbon bits.

    Does anyone know of any places that will undertake this kind of stuff?

    Was it you that said you had found somewhere that would chrome most things for you Andy. If it wasn't I'm sure they were based in the North East.

    I personally love this engine bay. It's a 1.8 SRi Corsc C and it's mint -







    Plus it's got the seats I'm having in mine (don't know where I'm getting the cash from yet) ;-)

    theres carbon engine covers for the corsa on ebay all the time for not much cash. I emailed the guy about a 1.9 one but he just ignored me.

    I want some of those suspension turret caps and the expansion tank cap. Had loads of carbon and alloy on my saxo engine bay but pro-comp and forge dont do anything for the vectra

    if your after carbon then it may be worth getting in touch with a company called 'Allsmiles'
    they do carbon stuff for golf's mainly but they make basically everything themselves, so i reckon they may do a custom job for you.
