    The Coupe is home

    Picked it up from the bodyshop this morning and got it home. Was gonna give it a wash but it's pouring down. Still a couple of little jobs need doing but on the whole i'm chuffed.


    I had a few little jobs done:
    • Gloas back boot strip
    • Lexmaul lights
    • Rear arches tidied up from the scrubbing
    • Front bumper blown in
    • Roof cut and polished
    • Bonnet underside painted
    • Grille repainted
    • Irmscher bonnet extension
    • Replacment Vec C brake light, swapped clear for smoked
    • Pressed plates.
    I'lllet the pictures do the talking, no side pictures though as my wheels aren't done yet. Gimme a couple of weeks

    Looks great as per usual mate

    I'd move the numberplate down a tad as it looks like it might rub the bumper on the top edge from the pic

    Like the black roof, I'm not overly keen on smoothened boot lid but the rest of the car does look superb.

    I've found out where my boot leak is coming from now, so i've been outside trying to sort out the Vectra C boot light. That wasn't wired up and fitted as I only collected it recently and it was something i thought i could do myself.
