Finally finished my cally
« on: June 09, 2012, 21:37:35 PM »
Well guys after a long year of waiting, working and a lot of swearing the calibra is now finished the first part of its build, there is more to do but until funds allow this is it. Lol

I decided on the Opel / OPC theme to make it a bit different, a lot of the bits had to be sourced in Germany which was a pain in the ass at times!

A big thanx has to go to Angus whose knowledge of German came in handy at times. Lol

But anyway here's some pics, let me know what u think












Keep er lit!

Lewis Hamilton said that winning his first race felt better than having sex. Kimi's reply to that was, Maybe he never had sex.

Looks great John, glad to see it all finished up!

Tbh I think it looks spot on with just the front apron, the rest might be too much on this one?

Have to agree with u angus, I think the rest of the kit would be 2 much for the car. I always liked the calibra from all other angles except the front, always thought they couldve done more with the bumper.

Well after 7 months off the road for winter and thoughts of possibly selling due to buying a vectra c daily driver and keeping my astra Gsi turbo as well, I finally returned the cally to the road this weekend and I am so glad I decided not to sell it!

Still puts a smile on my face and gets plenty of attention when out and about! :)
