did a couple things today not alot due to weather and other things but managed to get a hold of some facelift plugs and rewire them so that i can have the facelift headlights. then wired in the hid kit and fitted my wind deflectors and calibra turbo steering wheel.
i then fitted my facelift smoked rear lights

1 smoked light against old:

done a few bits and bobs lately.
managed to fit all the gsi door cards with chrome doorhandles and irmy door pins
fitted the rear seats and the passanger side recaro!! couldnt get the drivers seat out as the bolts have rounded. will try and use a socket to get it out or gring it out so hopefully its in by the weekend!

picked up my coilovers.. 40 bargain imo
going back up on saturday for rear axle and the full front legs so i can convert it to 5 stud for the bargain price of 25

i also ordered a opel badge for the boot and won a immaculate gsi phase1 front bumper on ebay!

will get it painted closer to pvs while i source a phase 1 gsi rear.
gsi front:

recaro seat and gsi door card:

coilies:
