UPDATE! :)

Hello again, been busy with other things like racing with Legends and other stuff too, but here's all important updates :)


Some kids jumped over my car at city, but luckily got the repair from insurance.









The repaint was okay I was okay with it.








Decided to change back those old 18 alloys :)








And here's something very intresting! I polished the headlights with sand paper. First 500--->800-->1500-->4000 and a water wax finished the work :)









This is the final look!




Thanks for all who keep looking my updates :)

Damn kids, good thing you had insurance that covered that  :y

Nice work on polishing those headlights, I'll try it soon too to get my right side headlight a bit brighter. Going to post pics about it also, if the operation is a success :P

Hello!

I've been doing all kind of small detail fixes since last update and I don't have photos of everything.

I went to opel service and they changed the oil to gearbox, it was expensive but now I can drive with a smile on my face knowing I have new oils there and what's best the only leak that came from gearbox is now fixed too.

I got the self-levelling shocks working but the compressor makes pretty loud sound when running. But I use is until it works no more and then buy normal shocks to back.

Then I changed the front brakediscs and brakepads, took the "new" discs from the -95 omega too :)



Here's the doorlist change.
I took off the list that was broken and got the "new" list from the old omega, it was a hard work but it turned out to be very good.




Then there's been the ending of the -95 Omega. We stripped it almost naked. Lifting the engine was pretty easy as it was my first time lifting engine from any normal vehicle... it took about 15 mins after exhaust being dropped and the front cutted open. I bet it can be hard when you can't just cut the front open.




I still have some parts and selling them here in finland. Engine and the gearbox went pretty quickly :)

I got a small water leak somewhere in the back of the engine and started to find the leak first I was expecting the worst but then took apart the intake system and saw the water all over the oil cooler plate.

Here's the water leak topic
http://www.omegaowners.com/forum/index.php?topic=126551.0

I got this wonderful carage to use during this project and it really was an enjoyable job.
Here's pictures










Then I decided to change to intermediate tyres, as my summertyres were worn out and winter tyres too new to put under car yet :D



Also I fixed my towing hitch's connector, it was connected wrong. At the same time I painted the hitch to metallic black :)



And finished it off with good, thorough and gentle wash.




Also changed exhaust from cats back to simons exhaust. Now it's breathing good and sound is pretty good too! :)

Thanks, please enjoy! ;)

Hi here's some winter update!

After I changed the exhaust it left me some rattle noises from under so I decided to go under the car and take the exhaust away and try again. It was a succeed and now I'm just hearing nice mur from the back :) The sound is mur and not some youngish boomrattle sound! :D




Here's some more pictures with new exhaust and the ''intermediate'' tires/wheels :)







Here's what I did with the TC button light as it was broken. Was annoying so change but all and all easy job. And at the same I changed every single lamp on the dash :)







This is the lowest consumption I've ever got! Driving with 4 adults and trunk full loaded. Those Hankook winter tyres without studs 2.3bars and Shell V-Power in the tank. Speed limits changed on 80 and 100 kmh/h.




And then I finally changed the winter tyres as the snow came :)

Troubling with weather, humidity and foaming oil. Cleaned breather hoses but didin't take those out. I used air to blow them clear from the worst grunge and cleaned carefully those eco parts top of engine. The breather box might be still full of that grunge or foam how you call it in here?

Also New Wheels!!-->

Hopefully summer comes soon :D

Here's some photos around the early 2015! Hope you like :)






Might have spend some time washing car but no wax yet :)


Trying new wheels!!!!! 225/40 18x8 now but 2 of the wheels are worn out so going for 245/40 but still thinking if should buy all new?! :D
2 wheels have 4-5mm track left.
