What do you mean welcome back? I aint been anywhere lol
Has getting shot of the boxes perked the motor up at all?
Maybe a little. Cant tell because with almost 0 temps its better anyway.
Still minging but sorting a few long overdue jobs.
A bodgy fix to my door seal but I do have a spare to swap it with but may just throw that on the other vec that needs it more.
Had a really fine long cut along it. No longer.
MOT due soon. Maybe rear pads but no other concerns unless they find something.
A local Vectra meet.
Looks a nice little turn out
Removed aftermarket H/U to fit CD70 with colour screen navi. I dont have a gps ariel but ebay will sort that for a fiver and mount inside dash.
Swapped my non broken fans over and fitted.
Need front panel SMD converting blue and white like rest of car. A newer than 2004 navi disk, ariel on route and stock cage off my cd30 it came with.
Was a good turn out. More than can be seen. VS north east meet.
Been working on the CD70 which has been failing to read copies, a dry laser clean appeared to resolve issue but was getting skipping.
Have revisited with some cleaning solution and a cotton bud and will see how it goes over the week.
Cage has arrived and I am still awaiting GPS Ariel - If I am fully happy this will be installed flush, if not I will either replace laser inside then decide to keep or sell as CD70 is quite gosh compared to any aftermarket H/U to be honest.
hi Aaron,if the cd70 in the 2004 signum i am stripping is any good to you. you can have it for free if you can get some one in coventry to pick it up.
Is it full can? Its broken and maybe useful for parts?
Could always use spares but nobody down your way. Could offer cover postage if came to it.
hi mate, all working. [ full can] i dont understand the tec its better than going to the scrappys i know they dont care and thier friends. im a bit slow now as last car was cavi in 2007
as i was looking after the mum. and work van . now 4 vx,s. let me know ill keep it for you mate. plus like the picture.
Sent you an inbox Jonny. Thanks
hi Aaron.ncdc 2013 unit seem to be working (orange screen). removed the unit today so ill keep it safe, if any good to you let us know and just cover the postage.
Hi @jonny the ncdc2013 is a half canbus head unit
Bought new cd70 brackets, cage and a spare drive just in case.
Had front panel SMD converted but not happy with the colour match or the fact front is still a bit wobbly so will perfect this later.
Vec went in for MOT and failed so undergoing repair asap.
Been a while since updating,not had time or felt up to it as recently had an OP and been busy healing and tramadol sailing.
MOT failed on a few bits.
Historic chunk out my ARB failed and needed to replace whole ARB.
Always had a suspension issue with suspected estate spring been in mix. Confirmed 2 rears were hugely different and the drivers corner snapped so rather than doing a pair. Thrown on a 30mm LO lowering spring kit.
NS arm had give. Needed replacing. Had rear pads and droplinks i had spare fitted while there.
Still to get car 4 wheel aligned asap.
Bought a parrot kit for cheap but more chew than fitting the pioneer by far. Least its in and adds phone/iPod support without blowing money on trying to make the cd70 less 3rd world.
Been over a year since hoovered so finally done that.
Now lugging less fitted boot panels back in but somehow lost a piece.
Now im allowed to drive again. Just hit this mileage. Getting on a bit now.
