my vectra sri150

#1
My vectra is a 2001 sri 150 :)

the mods started just one week after buying for £9500 in early 2002 :roll:

first mod - v6 front bumper :)

then a year passed and I fitted the later spec centre caps and an Irmscher grille
also colour matched the sri badges and painted the sri red to match the 150 badge
and painted the brake calipers red :roll:

then a set of mk 1 gsi wheels were fitted and a set of the infamous lexus style rear lights

then the wheels were changed to the mk 2 gsi wheels
also replaced the exhaust with a magnex twin slash
standard rear lights fitted back on too 8)

Lovely, looks fantastic !! How come you've put most of it back to standard neil ?
a few reasons, I wanted the tuning parts for my vx220, my wife didn't like the car anymore, raise some cash for my vx220 project.

after refitting the 16" wheels and fitting a standard sri150 exhaust the wife decided to keep it and wouldn't allow me to sell anymore bits :roll:

that looks mint Neil. the SRi v6 bumper looks really smart and different.
Thank you Andy :oops:

It's my favorite bumper for the vecB drool.gif

I've owned a facelift 2.5 gsi so wanted something different and the v6 bumper is quite rare 8)

it hasn't been polished in six months and the wheels had never been polished on the inside since I fitted them nine months ago :oops:

I wonder if the wife would notice if I fitted another engine dunno..

Nice and clean, love it......... & the front bumpers so much beefy`er looking. Top choice.
I`ve red paint sat in the shed ready for the calipers (next time I swap the wheels), did/do the calipers req`r much preppin` prior to painting.
... or would a once over with a stiff brush be ok.

you need to remove all loose dirt etc and then four coats of caliper paint, expect to spend about one hour on each caliper :roll:

my vx220 calipers took two hours each off the car :eek:

a quick pic of my mornings work, polished both vectra's 8)
