so here she is, i got here a few months ago and straight away had to replace the steering rack and hoses. she was lowered 60/40 and was put back to standard spec but i will probably lower her again, just not as severe as she was.
i've only just started to get some work done to her recent and new wishbones / ball joints have just been fitted...
while the wheels were off i rubbed down the calipers and gave them 3 coats of cadburys metallic purple...
she's sitting on standard 16" sri alloys but i got a set of gsi phase 2's for her
these had a fair few scuff marks and needed sanding and filling.....
i starded this job a few weeks ago during a real cold spell.... a few single malts were most welcome and much needed
2 coats of primer, 4 coats of paint and 2 coats of laquer, ive added some purple to the centre caps but will possibly swap these for opel ones in the future
should have said paint colour is Graphite Grey, i added a set of rim blades to protect all the hard work involved in the wheel refurbing........
i cant wait to see them on Vicky now, but need to get them balanced and wheels aligned due to the new ball joints and the money set aside for this got spent on a gsi bumper and exhaust.
ive a few cosmetics lined up for her... a window tinting kit and large irschmer sticker (with purple dot instead of red) is just waiting for some decent weather so will start prepping the bumper till then
will keep the progress on Vicky updated as work continues
nice work bud....
and best colour aswell!!!
Thats the colour of my plenums on mine mate absolutely mint colour and looks nice on calipers to mate
Loving the work mate making good progress with it keep up the good work and loving the colour choice you spraying the pleums that colour mate
Cheers matey, the plenum she will either be the same colour or I've this mad idea of doing them the colour of the car with cadburys purple lightning on them
As Vicky is in daily use I'll need to get a set of spare plenums and get them done and do a straight swap. That will give me a spare set which I can do purple if I don't like the petrol blue with lightning... but the bumper will be first..!!
Anychance of me aquiring the old bumper akkers?. Mine is a bit bashed and scraped. My car is petrol blue aswell.
That will look absolutely mint mate petrol blue plenums with purple lightining strikes
Coming along nicely, keep the pics coming
no problem mate, will take some pics of it next time she's washed
Love this colour and gotta love a vec b estate. Wasn't sure about the purple until I saw the wheels and now I reckon they will look class
Nice work fella
