Yeah, I only wanted Ultra Blue :p. Thanks :D. Will end up doing all that just need the dosh right now :(.

I'll post some more pictures of how the car I want to look later. What does everyone think of the gunmetal Opel badge? Reckon I should do it? Probably do the de-badge on Tuesday when I can get a hold of some Autoglym intensive tar remover.

very nice base car there mate and some good plans :)

look forward to seeing the progress
Thank you very much :D.

ill pro do the opel badge white or black, but that my opinion
Going for gunmetal wheels I think? I do like the look of M20NAY black ones but then again I like J87 white ones. Depends what wheels i'm going for tbh. Pics of a Veccy in a bit.

What a faf getting it in a tiny garage! Just had to clear loads out (which included the bar stool you always shotgunned Craig :() Haha.

Nevertheless DAIR's stickers went on. First one went on by accident 'cos I didn't realise it was that close to the window :p.





Poor 2MP quality :(.

It'll be on the road this month but won't be me behind the wheel :lol:. Birthdays in June so pretty long.

Repeaters where really easy! Flat blade screwdriver with a cloth around it so it doesn't damaged the paint of the car and pry them off. Use a bit of force, does sound like something is breaking but it should be all good. When it comes out enough to use your hands just use your hands.

They do look unbelievably nice mind.

Today I got some Ford graphite gray paint, clear lacquer and some Autoglym Intensive Tar Remover. 15 quid! Christ :lol:.

De-badge and rub strip will probably happen today but I am currently spraying a chrome standard Opel badge in the gray colour. Pictures to come. Started off basically like this:
