My bro picked the car up last tuesday from Grasmere Vauxhall, and I specifically told them not to touch I was going to prep the car with him. He got a cracking deal on my car, thanks to Andy, anybody looking to buy a VXR, make sure you see Andy @ Grasmere!
Here's the pics of picking her up:
Andy showing him where the windscreen wipers are - lol
Just 12 miles on the clock
On to the mods, first we changed the tax disc holder for a Richbrook one. Out with the old:
In with the new:
Next up we de-badged & de-wipered the rear, taking off "Corsa" & "VXR" leaving the all important "vauxhall" badge in the middle - lol
Then we installed the HIDS. We went for 6k as they are close enough to oem xenons, can bus ones with a slim digital ballast they were quite easy to install. They look really blue in the pics, but they look spot on in the flesh. Later added white LED sidelights, that look cool too.
Pic of them, in action:
Next was to get rid of the fried egg indicator look, before:
Rears done also, one before:
That is a great mod for really little money, makes an instant difference and just makes the car look alot cleaner. I have ordered the clear side repeaters so they will get installed as soon as they arrive.
On with the detail, first I took the wheels off, to clean & seal:
'Bilberry' wheel cleaner was used to clean the wheels:
The backs were cleaned, alot of grease & transport wax, so tardis was used to remove, then rinsed:
The wheels were then dried:
2 x coats of Autoglym Super Resin Polish for the backs of the wheels:
