Title: Calibra turbo
Post by: Uprising on October 24, 2014, 12:07:05 PM
Hi guys, my story started long time ago, i bought my first calibra in 2008, it was a turbo but it was pretty "dead"...i tryed fixing it but it was very hard, i knew sh*t and it was my first car...so it ended up in my garage for about a year. I sold the girl and bought another turbo, in good condition and the story started...

The back looks nice....the imersher(?) boot panel is worth a bit.

So guys i totally agree with u, i don't like the kit either, always wanted a tender kit but here is impossible to find, so i changed for stock bumpers and bought a set of Team dynamics rims

Good to see you about Mihai.   Got alot of work to get with there bud!  Im sure it will look amazing once you have the painting done.  Ive seen you finishing skills before and you detailing work is wicked!  Guess it helps that you detail cars for a living lol

After some time and a ton of money spend was bought another calibra front end and everything was rebuild.
