After long time not posted anything here, it's time for a big new update!

Mounted Aerocatch;







After finished that, i had some problems with my daily calibra's suspension;



After finishing that, 2 days later my radiator broke, so had fixed that to.
Then i make my projectcar ready for the paintjob;





Give my car a floorcoating;



Finally painteddd!!!








i must see how my front bumper looks on the car :)



Get the car back home;





2 weeks later i had a day free from work, so i cleaned up my storage;
Before;



After:




Same evening did some work on the car;
New seats (other are to high and wide)





We had to make some costom frames, so this is how we make it;


Yesterday it was cable day, so here some pics all over the day;


and it's out;



In the projectcar;

Missing my dash to fitt it good, but that would be solved next week.



Tried Original rearlights and black rearlights, but think Original would be better, what do you think?

Your project is inspiring stuff & I love topics that have pictures revealing areas of the Calibra structure that are hard to find such as the stripped out interior or the front corner without the wing attached. It's often the case with cars of this age where things get broken by taking gambles because we cant see what's behind a panel or trim - now we can :)

Hello sealeysonic, the old driver said it was a dtm, with licensecheck is has also be a dtm, but haves no dtm badges. Anyway 100% sure you never know, but for me it doesnt matter enough to spend time to find it out.

Calibranath, i'd like to make picture's of my work, and try to post all the good pictures i'd make so the ones who want to follow my project seen every detail. But sometimes i forget it to, spend tomorrow a day time for underneath the car (try to update it this weekend)

Yesterday it was finally time to build in the engine. :D :D
So a mate was here 2 days to help with the engine.

First, cars out :)


Towed my projectcar to my garage at home, so we could there build in the engine.

After that, we build up the engine (last little things)

Build in my 5,5KG CourtenaySport/MTECH flywheel with Black Diamond stage2 Clutch

And together at my home :)


Put the engine in the middle under my engineroom, on a tyre.



Then the car down;


Then put the engine lift on it and tow it up;


And fit the engine on the car;


Done! suits well in my C20NE Body;  8)


And how the car looks outside now;



And then get them back in my own garage

Love the engine like this;


And this is probably the interior design, what do you guys think about it?

(steering wheel is temporary)

See ya!  8)

Hello,

Its a long time ago ive posted something, but some things are done after those 1,5 months.
Are very busy at the moment, so have not much time to spend on my car...

Just bought some brakes;

Paint it;




And i found a problem with my second belt, i have a car with airco, but a belt for cars without airco (wanted to remove the AC Pump)
But my shorter belt hits the engine mount, so need a new mount for cars without AC (and a V6)


Ordered new hand brake;


And these ones are in bad condition, so need other ones;


Try to fit my cooler from my donor calibra;




And tried my new wheels on the car if they fits;



It nearly fits with my federal RS-R Semi slicks in 225/45R17
Going wide on the back :)

Love that wheels!  :-*



Finally after a month searching found new ones;


And bought a Carbon spoiler from Rieger


(it has a protection folie on it at the moment)

Did the brake upgrade;
Original;


And new ones;

Includes; - 298MM Drilled brake discs from mathijssentechnics holland
- EBC Redstuff brake pads
- Omega 3.2 Girling callipers
- Wezmoto braided brake lines

and ordered a roose motorsport coolant kit;




Removed pins from aerocatch and slide them to the good size and mount headlights;



And a little project my dad is working on;


See u next time :)

love the wheel/tire combo.
also the hoses are a nice upgrade

not a big fan of the fake carbon spoiler, painted in the body color it wil be much nicer

for the engine mount.. the non ac are quite rare and mega expensive ( i've got one  8) ) but if you mount an extra roller on this mount you can do without ac
got a complete mount with extra roller/belt for sell if you are interested. just pm me on the opelforum
