    Car Finaly Fixed :) or maybe not :(

    after many a month trying to find a gearbox and a place to fit it within my budget of £300, i finaly gave up trying to find one on ebay and a scrappy (because during the search i saved another 300quid lol) i bit the bullet and paid for a reconditiond box and whilst i was at it had the clutch replaced (it needed it aswell)

    £600 inc VAT for a Recon box with 6months warenty, clutch (proper GM one) gearbox oil and labour. they even travled 40mins to collect my car for free

    took my car away Saturday morning, collected my car 3pm today.

    i can finaly carry on what ive got planned for the car, well once my bank balance has recovered lol.

    to follow in a few days time, a update of all the work ive been doing on it over the past 6months

    i need to finish off the interior at the moment, sourced some vectra sxi seats a huge leap in comfort and style over the standard LS ones. just making up a bracket to fit to the car so the rear bum 60/40 seat will fit.
    then a new gear gaitor and the interior is done (will post pictures of finished interior so you can see it finished as a whole)

    need to finish dressing the engine bay, need to get my hands on a few more things

    undecided yet on a body kit? there arnt many i like and the ones i do dunno how they'd look in my colour (mirage)

    then engine mods its only a 1.4 16v but still i know someone that might (fingers crossed) be able to get hold of and fit for me some motor bike throttle bodies. thats high on my wish list and hope it happens

    then the usal, full preformance exhaust, re-map to go with it.
