Recent Update: Custom made, Opel center wheel caps- 15/12/2010.
This thread will start off a bit slow, due to insurance bending me over a barrel! But there a definite plans for this beast so, suggest suggest suggest.
She came to me fairly standard. Only Mods being:
HUGE 19'' VXR optional extra's.
Across the board LED conversion, with an added SRI in the dash which the converter uses as his trade mark.
And a part debadge.
So yesterday, i had the V grille colour coded, which turned out absolutly ace. But something was missing. so I had a play this morning, and came up with this
the standard V grille, colour coded, however, the Griffin's been removed, the plate it was housed on has been carbon fibre wrapped, and an Opel Blitz has been stuck on. It looks even better in real life IMO, and im yet to see one similar or the same.
more to come! Just waiting for this to set before it goes back on.
Small Update :
Grille's back on and looking sweet, 112mm Opel Blitz is on the back!
Ok so I got the rear chrome strip off this evening. Im fairly happy with how it's come out. All the imperfections I managed to scrape round to the bottom so there not instantly noticeable until you get underneath and look ordered my red Turbo badge yesterday so, i may re - wrap it when that shows up.
Not bad for my first ever attempt at wrapping!
Okey Dokie, 3 weeks ago I ordered my HUGE 54mm opel badges to fabricate onto my center wheele caps. Que the snow. Turned up today, and took me about 45 mins to get sorted. Very happy with the out come. Iv copied my idea from the front grille, of carbon fibre wrapping the backing plate, so now not only do they match, they look like manufactured quality - the Opel badges are impact glued on, im a little worried about them spinnig off at high speed, thow, a few days in the warmth before there put on, im hoping should service. The front grille is now as hard a concrete. Zero play in it at all so having used the same method here, should be sweet as nut.
Update 15/12/2010- caps are on and seem to be holding superb! they seem to have a tiny bit of play after ive been out for a while but other than me franticly checking to see if they've fallen off at some point, sometimes even at lights all is good for now!
Thow from these photo I think I need to give her a clean, the alloys atm are a complete different colour from the caps!
Update - Legal pressed plates are on order, thow couldn't get my Belgian or E ones so had to settle for plane jane.
