    sucessful morning

    had the day off from the GF today :bananasmi so thought id get a little work done on the car,

    firstly got round to fitting my new Vectra C cold air intake, makes loads of differnece from the standard small astra one and car is alot more responsive now, which is nice cos i wasnt actually expecting any differnce,
    was a b*astard to fit as after taking out the airbox the old pipe doesnt fit to come out, it must be fitted before the radiators and engine from the factory, so i had to use a hacksaw/force to get it out but it was worth it,
    (its the small black tube from the front grille)

    Before

    After

    also gave me the chance to clean in the bay a little and removed the plug cover to clean etc. looks a little better but wants a proper clean soon,

    Then i decided to have a go at fitting the new fog light that has been waiting to go in since before i brought thr car. (about 8 months?)
    First had to remove the front bumper which was surprisingly easy but still managed to break 3 of the 5 clips..lol (one of the 2 near the slam panel and 2 of the 3 under the car) so ill have to get some new ones at some point,
    Amazing how much diff the new lense makes i think, but id guess thats just to me cos everytime i looked at the car id stuck out that it was broke to me,
    Before

    During

    Fitted

    Just got to decide what to do next,

    I took out my air intake the other day, i have an induction kit tho so havent replaced it with the veccy c one. It helps keep the engine cooler when movin along, especially with a new grill. I would post some photos but not sure how to upload them into a post?
