My MV6
« on: 08 July 2013, 16:50:49 »

Hello everyone,
I've been following this forum for a while and now I decided to register and make topic of my own Omega :)

Opel Omega MV6 3.0l V6 -95
I bought her in january 2012 and she was my first car and still is.
First I only drove and didn't do much just normal changing oil and some maintenance.



These are from previous owner.






These are couple weeks after I bought her.






Spring and summer is close. Vectra is my dad's 2.6l V6.





Summer 2012.








Tailpipe polished with sandpaper :)






In drag race with my brother he needed car with hitch :)





Until this I've been pretty much taking parts off and polish them and put back on, some broken parts I got from crashed Omegas.
Also changed all the fluids, brakepads and also fitted new music player because I didn't got the original player and the old wasn't so good or nice either.



Winter came pretty fast.





Decided to get new headlamps that were used but in average condition because I got them cheap :)







Early 2013.





Spring 2013 after big motor service
-Valve covers and gaskets
-Timing belt and water pump
-Spark plugs
-A/C service






Then I took the fron pumper off and cleaned it and also put it on properly earlier it was somehow loose.





And now after the front pumper project and ongoing led lamp project





After the leds next project will be to do something to the wheels, spacers or new alloys.

Hope you like it and feel free to ask anything :)

I will update more later :)

I didn't put them on, they were on when i bought the car, but when I took them off from old headlamps I heated them and just pulled them off and I think it was somekind of double-sided tape. If I would put them on I would use double-sided tape or somekind of silicone.


I have to ask, what should I do with the wheels? Probably omega's original alloys? Or just paint these and buy spacers?
Problem is that I dont like these alloys with ET49 they are too inside in the fender.

I ordered the top model led(42mm) of the picture to doors, reading light and tailgate.(6 leds). Back door reading lights(37mm) I already found in local store but the longer ones they didn't have. Less heat, less power consumption and more light that's why :)


Thank you all for positive feedback :)

Evening forum, this is update of what I have done.


I had one problem with the back window it worked from front switch but from back door switch it didn't go up, there was broken wire. Easy to fix but I wanted to look inside the doors even it wasn't necessary to take off the doorboard(what is the real naming for that?)
You just needed to take off the black rubber spriral from the car end and take off the adapter and pull down the rubber and fix the broken wires. Could've been easier to explain with photos but I kinda forgot.






Oh, and here's the camera that I bought from dx and installed last year. There was funny thing when I bought it, memory card had same price as the camera :D






Now to the LEDs









Omega today :) Haven't washed it for long time.
