    the coupe end of 2008 - starting 2009

    I was going to post this before the new year began, but didnt get time.
    just thought id show you all what the coupe looks like starting 2009, where i hope and can get some more mods done before show season begins.
    I had a mad rush to get these mods done as i was supposed to be having my TV photoshoot before xmas, but that never happened.
    new mods have included;

    front and rear opel badges (still tying to find one for the steering wheel)
    front and rear white dutch plates (show plates only)
    alloy wheels have had lips polished
    boot build has been retrimmed in cushioned cream leather, body coloured amp.
    cream and body coloured engine cover with smoothed over oil cap
    cream leather cover for inlet pipe stiched with bergundy stiching

    and think thats about it.

    as always its nice to hear peoples opinions on the new mods...

    The offset on those wheels is awful and spoils an otherwise very nice car!
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    looks good John and the new mods help pull it all together that little bit more I still think totally polished wheels is the thing missing, but I know you are not that keen on the idea.

    Liking it alot john, however i would get the rest of the boot carpet trimmed in the cream colour, looks a bit odd with the black carpet in there at the moment personally.
