General Car Chat / Re: Ebay Elite. Project or Money Pit?

My only reservation is the arches... can they be reasonably restored permanently for not a fortune?  :y



As I said they really aren't that bad and a good grind and some filler they will look okay but can't get a good look at the actual arch underneath so if there is metal to be added and you want it to last then get some steel and weld it in then fill and make good, it don't look too bad past the edge so shouldn't need to chase it halfway up the panel.

Deffo worth doing up great colour and as others have said the 3.2 elites are becoming rare looks like the arches have been caught just in time and a good grind out and clean up spray they should be good, post the photo's when done :y

I had a little TWIT in a BMW play games with me in my Monaro a few weeks back, I was driving along minding my business when I pulled up behind a bus there was a BMW waiting to come out a carpark, so I waved him out, he then decided that he would show his superiority to me by accelerating and braking  ::) so I let him play and he decided to keep doing this and then he overtook the 2 cars in front of him, I needed to pull into a petrol station to fill up and low and behold the BMW boy was there, I got out and preceded to  fill the Monaro when his girlfriend came out and got back into the car, he decided to then show me his superiority again by reving his car and spinning his one wheel off the forecourt, followed quickly by a big bang and a horrible knocking noise, he had ripped his propshaft  :o I of course shouted WA*%ER out loud. After I had paid I thought I would show him that he infact was not the superior person by turning off my Traction control and spun my rear wheels I looked in the mirror to see the smoke drifting over his much more superior BMW  8)

There is no need to worry as long as the tile felt is okay underneath the tiles the colour will go but the tile is still doing its job and as for the tile painting pikeys DON'T get it done it will be back to this before you know it and the pikeys would have your cash  :( it doesn't as they say improve the insulation absolute poppycock  :y

As you said no details on fitment message them with your engine number and ask if it fits. But as they are not Amazon and only other party not sure they will give you the correct info it does seem very cheap over 150 off  :-\  And ask yourself do you like your car because if you fit the wrong one it will fopah the engine.  >:(

Thanks gentlemen. I used to buy SKF from Autovaux, but they appear to have stopped stocking them. Eurocarparts and Buypartsby sell the Contitech kit for 97.70. Thanks for the Amazon tip, I found this Dayco kit for 57 odd. I did not find any note saying which cars it fitted, but I reckon that all Opel kits fit all V6 Opels.






Nope as some have different set ups bearing wise Buypartby ask for engine number and then give you correct kit.
