right then this is wot i have been up to last few weeks, little job on the civic of smoking the rear lights, looked loads betta, love these wheels also!!





also paints saxo spoiler for a local lad and fitted that not got any pics of that yet tho! didnt come out to bad, struggling with painting in this cold weather tho!

here is a pic of the engine going into kts corsa at the end of this week, fingers crossed will be a good one, her car vertually passed mot if they had not of broken the handbreak cable in the test.............hehe

engine shoule be good one, done 2k miles since engine re build and re con gearbox, 4 branch manifold also





mended the astra cos it had popped a hole in a core plug in the head, was a right pain to get to but luckly we got to it without taking inlet off or engine out etc! so thats going REALLY well at the min, still manages to scare me, hehe!! got mot us on that soon need 2 new tires then fingers corssed it will go through then gotta think bout selling it!!!

now on to the vx, finally got the paint on friday for it!!! here are all the bits that need painting, hoping they will be going into primer today if all goes well, also had to get rear wheel cos mine was slightly buckled, finding parts are right pain! all going well, waiting on vauxhall to make a break pipe cos they dont actually have any in stock anywhere!!! gutted! once that is fitted on the car and its all painted will just be putting all back together then!!! finally getting there with the car tho












just done some wheels for local lad for his 106 ralle, he had them sand blasted and i just dont lot of rubbing down and they are glacier white now, the lights in spray room make them look cream tho! not come out to bad, got runs in them yesterday so had to do them again today, its to cold for painting really!







oh yea,. picked this up on friday also, another car! not moved for 18months+ and got blown engine but it was 300!!!! so after a 1.6 engine if anyone has one, will either be done up for me gfs new car of new engine and sell it on after! not sure yet! needs cleaning badly!!

oh no, u were not metn to say u likes that colour on the vx cos its going yellow!!!! hehe

going all yellow with black mesh, then taken vaux badge out of the front grill and the V will be going black, also the wheels and the surround to the screen! should look good i hope!!!

i currently have........ astra gsi turbo, the vx220, pug 106d, corsa with brava lights, jagcorsa, and now tigra! the plan is that the tigra will be me gfs new car tho!!

just depends if we can agree on wot she should do with the car, i want to get 18s and big kit and slam it and go 2 tone bring colour with black!! but she wants to decide on summit else i think! either way i thought for 300 notes was bargin, even if it was a 13 hour round trip to get it!!!!!!!

just out to prime all the bits of the vx up now!

ummmm yea, cant really do anything that is gonna take to long to do tho really cos i got alot on!!!!!

was saying to gf that she has 2 options for the car:-

1) big wheels, 18s, big kit, spoiler etc and lower it nice exhaust!
OR
2) go euro with it and get some fat 15s on it and slam it and so suttle and smooth the the bodywork

she still loves her corsa and does not want to get rid of it cos she dont want anyone else to have it!!! hehe

anyone got any pics of bodykits for tigras????
