    Washed, Polished and Waxed!

    Spent about 3 hours today cleaning my car, not my best effort but it's going to rain in the next week so I thought I'd have to clean it again after that. Why did I bother washing it then? 'Cos I can't stand dirty cars!

    Nothing fancy, pretty standard apart from an Opel Coupe grille

    Soon as I get a part-time job, next year I'd imagine due to exams coming in the next 2 weeks, I'm going for colour coding and springs. the moneh is pretty toight

    Anyway here's some pics:

    I think thats the opel grille, but not the coupe one - I could be wrong./ I thought the coupe one had a chrome line in it along the bottom edge.

    Looking very clean mate - we don't need a forecast to tell us it's gonna rain, it just does it anyway

    Nice to see a saloon (sedan) on the site. with some colour-coding, springs and alloys that'd look sweet. Coupe bumpers fit a saloon

    Start saving your dollar
