Lots of good work going on there, reminds me of undersealing the car before winter, but it's even too cold here to do it now. Lazy, I wish I had a ramp or a pit in the garage.

I agree, go red on the bonnet, and perhaps anthracite alloys?

Thank you guys! The bonnet stays black for the moment. I want next year to give her a bad boy look and then place a carbon fiber sticker.  ;D. I can't paint it in red because it was hit in the upper right side and it remains bent. Being black, you don't see the larger gap between the front wing and bonnet. Today is very cold, lately was snowing, I'd rather put back the winter wheels before it's not too late.  :) To night I will show you, mates, my last modifications (and the most precious)... ???

As I promise, I'm back with the latest mods of my car. Two months ago, I went to Bucharest for replacing  my old exhaust with an custom stainless one. As I wanted an power upgrade, not only a nice sound of the engine, I went for a custom exhaust manifold too!  ;D. There are some pictures taken due to the fabrication:

My new exhaust with Lexmaul silencer



It looks longer than the car!!!










New exhaust manifold:









Some of the latest photos:








.

The result? An good improvement of acceleration,a raise of torque and a cool sound! The engine "breathe" much faster ...

Another "Picture heavy" I think!  ;D
OK! I see that my work on my exhaust do not take any posts of you. Here I came with some new upgrades that I did on my red Cally. First of all, I give her a nice polish and wax treatment with my little hands. Some pictures....









After that, for my name birthday, I receive a set of brake discs and a pair of brake pads. They came from my best friend Tika. Thank you my good pal! I didn't wait much time to change them, and this is the result:








The old discs think they have the age same with the car ( 12 years!!!)... they were so damaged that one of them had a crack on the surface...









The new ones are an absolute delight!!! After 200 km I realise that the brake pads do not leave black powder on the wheels and now my brakes are very good...  ;D

Thanks, you gotta know that one was made in the early 1990 and the other in 1997. The first one came to me from the first owner and was in very good condition with all parts by GM.
I know that other Cally's here in Romania are not in mint condition because first they are cheap to buy, but then more expensive to bring them the real value.
