MY97 GLS 2000 16v
« on: 27 April 2016, 22:07:47 »

I bought this a couple of months ago to replace the volvo v70 which was bought to replace a 2.5cdx estate sadly written off

It has a full service history as was owned by  one family since 99 so really only 3 owners and garaged

It is not without its problems though
Sold with a cracked manifold, but 2 studs on cylinder 1 have sheared.
Rust bubbles on the rear arches but only starting to form
Rust spot on the rear drivers door
Tid not working properly
Assured it was serviced but wasn't

I agree. Not my personal preference but it looks good.

It is tidy,  it even has the original vx floor mats and the ac still works

I'm surprised how clean the 4banger is

Nice motor for the age of it, looks like it's been well looked after.

I serviced the motor and replaced the plug leads. I underestimated the lead size and can't refit the plug cover

I completely forgot that I had the new zorst manifold kit fresh from germany

Also I had the ac regassed and it's a lot colder, it also comes on quicker so it must have been low

I have bought a backbox from Poland, just waiting for it to turn up.
Hopefully it will sound like my old bmw and not raspy like an 8v cali

Done a small electrical mod a while ago but left it in the other omega which got scrapped

The auto shift lights,  I have changed them to light up jap style which may not be everybody's taste but they can be seen in the daylight

The position spots are all red, 
P-D-3-2-1 are a warm white
R is red
N is green

It's not a great pictures but you can see the reflection


I had to buy hundreds of leds which aren't needed. If anyone wants some I'll post them free

Got some goodies for the car

First I received my parcel from Poland



Its fits perfectly in the cut out on the valence

Probably the only prefacelift with a third brake light


Lastly I have had this opel badge for a long time,  it was originally for my 2.5 estate but it got written off,  then when I got the saloon I had to find the the 16v badge from the redtop cavalier/ cali and it's in perfect condition
But I may not put them on,  we'll see how I feel about it later

Fitted my P-reg with a MFL third brake light, but that's cool now there's two of us!  ;D

Always nice to see another PFL out there. And a very tidy one indeed. I'd ease off the badges, as they're wrong for the car (as you know) the chromed ones are very beautiful things, very reminiscent of 50s car badges.

Like the 'jap style LEDs' I'll mention the idea to my missus, who will hate the idea, and after a long discussion, as compromise I won't get the LEDs, but instead get some cushions.

Good stuff  :)

Well to be honest it has been debadged,  I think the only thing on the boot lid is vaux where the foam had gone hard,  shouldn't be too hard to remove
