I always liked the calibra from all other angles except the front, always thought they couldve done more with the bumper.

Indeed, the front bumper is lacking... But in saying that, so are the original side skirts...

The full kit would look better, and more complete, but it's your car to do with as you please!! :)

Well done...

Very nice! Very Low!   8)

Forgot to say its no longer as low, I changed the 60mm springs for some 40mm Gmax 1s and fitted gas shocks all round over the winter so it now sits a lot better and is nicer to drive


Keep er lit!

I love this car but I can't help but think it needs the rest of the kit.

Bit of an update on the cally, have had a few bits and pieces done this past few months so here goes :)

Thought I'd start the Calibra work off with this






Got stuck into it and here's the result :D






Not bad for a couple of cans of tint spray, wet and dry sandpaper, a can of silver and a can of black paint (thumb up)

Bumper repainted and headlights lightly tinted




Rear plate surround fitted







Apologies for the crap pics but it was dark

Wheels at the paint shop & White LEDs fitted to dials




Wheels back from refurb




As it was the last day of work before Xmas I had some time on my hands and knocked some strut top dust covers up out of billet aluminium on the CNC as I cracked one of the original plastic ones when replacing the front shocks earlier in the year :(

Old and new


Fitted :)


That's it for this year :)

How do you keep doing it mate. This is starting to look better than the black one! First rate work as usual.

What way did you tint the headlights?

My thoughts too...

It looks heaps better with the Hella Rear Number Plate Garnish...

I'd prefer either the Black or Black and Blue Gear and Handbrake gaitors, over your plain blue...

Also a Black Engine Oil Cap would be better suited...

Great Work on this car...

Well Done...
