    Nice pics there. Did you remove the dangling furry dice and sweep up empty crisp packets from under the front seats ? :D

    Haha I sold it in December last year as I was getting a new Hyundai Tucson and didn't need 2 cars. I sold it to a friend who I then pestered for 4 months to sell it back to me as I regretted it from day one.

    I convinced the wife, handed over the cash and hey presto I own it again lol

    Rear wiper delete. Bought a piece of perspex with the idea of shaping it to the right size by hand and glueing it in. Opted against that and bought a flush grommet from eBay for a fiver. 20180615_155751-1152x864.jpg

    It did actually have a sticker on the rear window saying "no dead bodies left in this vehicle overnight" but I removed It when I flushed the rear. Ive just ordered another one coz it was funny watching people pull up behind me at a set of traffic lights and start howling and taking pictures

    Just to finish this 4 year journey off once and for all, due to the impending arrival of two more dogs I have had to sell the Vectra to make way for a Van. To be honest it just wasn't the same owning it again after selling it on but hey ho we live and learn. Anyway its gone to someone I don't know so almost 0% chance of owning it again (will never say never though haha).
    New van bought and its a Renault Traffic.......time to start modding a van for the first time in my life. Anyway just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the nice comments about the Vectras build thread, all of the advice and support ive had from loads of members on here. Sad times but time for a new challenge. I will still pop in now and again but wont be "active" .

    Take it easy guys!
