    Dodger's Coupe

    Right, I thought it's about time I did a modification diary to show you all what I have been up to so far

    So here goes, this is how my Coupe looked when I brought the car











    First i removed the standard door pins and fitted some Irmscher ones





    Then off with the standard grill and fitted a plain black one





    Next fitted some INXX bonnet struts, these were off my Astra so are a bit rusty until I can rub them down and spray them.





    The dipped and headlights were not that bright at night so i changed them for:
    H7 Osram Night Breaker +90% 12v 55w bulbs
    HB3/9005 Philips Premium 30% bulbs

    Indicators were also changed to remove the "fried egg effect" to
    581 Philips Silver Vision





    Next came a TC switch and panel, i haven't wired it up in the engine bay yet



    Next was the armrest fitted





    Then the airbox modification with a K & N panel filter fitted







    Mods still to do this month,
    Spraying and fitting a coupe spoiler
    Spraying and fitting a coupe front splitter

    A future mod is to drop the rear end slightly, I have read that early Coupe Turbos and SE2 were 20mm lower at the rear

    On Friday i picked up my sprayed Irmscher Splitter for the Coupe

    So i got straight to work, removed the rubber splitter






    Then offered up the splitter just by holding it there with tape







    On Saturday went about fitting properly using Tigerseal and a couple of screws in the correct place got it all fitted,
    at the minute it's held in place with some tape and cable ties while the Tigerseal goes off







    More pictues will come once the bumper is fully fixed and the tape and cable ties removed
