SAMARAI's '95 2.0L Ecotec from Australia! ;)
« on: September 12, 2012, 15:45:22 PM »
Hey there guys. I'm From Australia and here's my pride and joy!






As she stands! (please excuse the Camera phone quality)

Best car I've owned. Absolutely love it!
In comparison to Firstly my 1979 Honda Accord (5spd) and then my 2000 Toyota Camry CSI, my Calibra is like a dream. I'm keen for any feedback and tips on modding!

The previous owner had already:
- Lowered it
- Stiffened the suspension
- Tow Bar
- Installed? a rear windscreen sunshade (not sure if these came stock)
- Muffler (fairly loud but legal)
- Aftermarket Kenwood headunit

I'm a student and its a slow modification process: 
- Firstly Put on 3.5inch exhaust tip over the factory rusted looking straw
- Installed Multi-Coloured LED's in the driver and passenger's footwells (Ladies love it and I like how it illuminates the floor. Something is missing without them on. Pictures coming soon)
- Fitted chrome tyre pressure valve caps (someone quite sadly stole them.. was a matter of time I guess)
- Replaced the rusted tow bar with a new chrome one
- The left indicator stalk needed replacing, works like perfect now
- Painted the brake calipers red for the extra 25Kw XD
- Alpine headunit, Alpine rear 6x9 speakers, 6" Clarion fronts and replaced my factory tweeters with those from a 1997 v6 Calibra
- Adjusted the front lowbeams with a new set of Globes (so I can actually see where im driving)
- Custom modified a set of white front windscreen wipers to fit the wiper arms
- Just recently resprayed the front bumper as it was looking quite faded
- Finally bogged and resprayed over scratches from previous owner (rear bumper guards mostly) So much better now!
- Re-blacked the trim ie, door handles, black plastic trim, seatbelts window wipers and seals!

Future plans are still a work in progress but one can only dream right?
- I'm definitely going to keep the clean look
- Bigger rims are a work in progress but would be nice
- An amp and a Sub (I'm content with my current set up but one can never go wrong with extra power and bass right?? XD)
- Window tint
- Possibly change the side guard indicators to something clear?.. HELP?

So thats my daily for you guys! Hope you enjoyed the read!

Feel free to comment. I'd love to chat to you all about my pride and joy!

Cheers for reading.
Have a good one!

Sama!

That is one very tidy Calibra!

I'd go for clear oval ones with a dark tint on a white Calibra, definately get shot of the orange "boils"!

Yeah I'd think that should suit. The Orange "Nipples" stick out alot!
Do I have to replace the whole wiring or can I just fit a cover over the top like this? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/330465583343#ht_2900wt_1271

I'm pleased I fitted a telly in my Calibra. It gives me something to watch when I'm waiting for the RAC.

They drink in the same bars as your brakes.

At least they drink in bars.

I bet yours sit around sipping tea from china cups with their little fingers pointing up in the air like the nancy boy brakes they really are.
