    Default My pre-facelift is now a FACELIFT! At last!

    Well, after a long wait, its finally done! And it only took 10 hours!!!
    Started Friday at 3pm until 7pm, then finished off the missing bits today 10am - 3pm. I've got to say it was a real eye opener! I can see why Mechanics charge so much! Drilling this, replacing that! So I thought I'd post up few pics of the day, but like a n1pple I forgot to take a "before" shot! DOH!

    Just like to say thank you to Glynn, who has given me all the advice I could of hoped for and even offered his own services!!! (So thanks for Friday afternoon especially!)

    The car was/is a bog standard 54 Plate Signum, but I've put an SRI front section on... Really like the silver body with black headlights!

    All the parts came from ebay 2nd hand, except the front panel...

    Thanks for looking!



    Sort of before...



    Spare parts littered the garden! Had lots of Q's and comments from the neighbours!



    Naked car!









    The guy who helped me works for Stagecoach (Buses) and was able to make my bonnet stick keep up thing work on the facelift!



    I know I probably should have painted the front panel, but I quite liked it just in black... might come back to bite me in the a$$e, we'll just have to see!

    So there's the final look of the car back home, I'm just going to spend Sunday giving the new (old) girl a good wax and wash!

    Good work! Must have been scary taking all the bits off!

    I've often wondered if the boys in blue would take more interest as the looks/year don't match? (perhaps MLC etc would give their view).

    i find the face lift headlights better than the pre-face by a long way indeed

    Some one on here sent me a link to where you can get some fancy Philips 80% + bulbs. I had them all aligned today, quite weird, never really thought that you might need them aligned! I havent actually taken her out tonight yet, I've had a few beers after finishing her, so will have to wait until tomorrow...
