I really need a garage  :(

The best I can do for all work is on the road in front of the house  :'(

Everything so far has had to be done on the driveway as its been SORN. Now it's got an MOT etc I can get some of the few remaining jobs done... Needs full geo, rear Crank seal and the lambda's moving.

I'd love a drive way :D Our road is too narrow and busy to really do over much at the side of it in safety.I do however have a garage-it's a small lock up[Omega just fits]and is about quarter mile away from home which makes doing things a bit of a chore if I forget something and have to keep returning home to fetch it.

Is that a stainless steel exhaust or just a trim on the back box?

Iíve struggled to find suitable trims, when 2 pipes are so close together.

Tail pipe trims are on my "sometime but not important" shopping list along with a replacement set of clocks[more important]and deciding what to do regards the radio.What "paint fix"did you use on the sticky switches?

I just removed the switches, cleaned off the sticky rubber coating with solvent, sanded them down to plastic then used plastic primer, star silver III spray paint (same as door trims and centre console on this car) and clear coat. A professional painter could obviously do a much better job but I decided to give it a try.

Just ebay ones I think. The problem is that all the £20 and below ones will be covered in rust in 12 months, I had the same problem as you with one of the cars, the tail pipes were bent together (not sure if the courier dropped it or ETS made it like that, difficult to pry them apart but managed to slot some trims on by modifying the clamps at the rear of the trims. I would like to get some slash cut (same as original) tips but think a visit to a specialist might be the best route.

Cracking job so far mate. I've been there so know how long it takes  :)


I also have no driveway, or garage, nice to see a few of us on here dont either. I did my old 'Turbo Weasel' FL scabby sticky door trims in a 'piano black' which at the time the Astra VXR was pretty new out, and featured that look. Looked pretty good, and wore very well, i'd recommend to anyone with FL  :)

I had the same problem when I stuck a couple of cheepo ones on mine a couple of years ago.

Fixed by sticking a piece of 2x2 down the pipe and using brut force I opened it up a few mm  ;) :D

A bit of heat first then a breaker bar handle does the job nicely. Heat is necessary in order to soften the metal in order to bend it without fracturing/weakening the pipes where they exit the back box :y

Anyone know what diameter trims are best ? Bearing in mind the close proximity of the pipes to one another even if they are nice and straight.
I think I did the measurements once, but lost the piece of paper.  ::)

Been a while since I updated this thread!

the car has been on holiday at Iceni Automotive (Andy Clears' car restoration business) and has had the rusty rear outer arch lips and rear door repaired and resprayed as well as a replacement front MV6 bumper also prepped and resprayed, I have loads of pictures but here's a few pictures to give you the general idea :)

When I get a chance to wash the car i'll take some more pictures!

Yes, I'm really pleased with the work Andy has done.

As for the cost, well it was a lot less than I was expecting, this car was just starting to turn the corner and was just caught in time, you can see the rear arches still had good metal on the inner arch panel and the outer panel had the rust contained in just the lip area which meant a repair could be made without having to cut higher up the outer wing panel.

The door issue is common, I have had the same on other Omega's and swapped doors for better ones but they were Z157 Star Silver III cars which is a different story to Z20R Diamond Black! When the car was taken for paint Andy said that they found there were four different versions of Z20R for the year, the version on this car has more red than the other three.

Thanks for all the work Andy!

Great work there. Nice to know there's someone out there who cares.  I've mentally bookmarked them if I need similar work doing.
Is that the same Andy Clears that was the parts guy at a VX dealer, and helped out loads of ABS members over the years?

it's much fussier than standard, which only emphasises the plonked on as an afterthought look of the facelift grille. Thumbs down from me

Thanks for the responses, I'm undecided.  ::)

Just for the record, this was a cheapy FK Automotive grill that was damaged so I took the hacksaw to it and retrofitted the fake chrome off a standard grill, I wouldn't have done this surgery (well bodge) to a genuine Irmscher grill!

I have another FK Automotive grill in black which looks good on a black car and a standard grill if I still can't make my my mind up!

I think the Irmscher grill with a charcoal or body colour frame suits the facelift as the original grill is the only chome on the car and looks tacky for it.

Other alternatives would be an Opel Grill or a Cadillac one :-\

I always thought the worst 'stick on grill' was the early rover 200/400, I think the facelift Omega grill looks more integral than that or the Astra G's.

To my mind the 'stick on' look comes from having the metal of the bonnet visible around the edges, but if that's the case how has BMW's kidney grill survived for so long?

To my mind the 'stick on' look comes from having the metal of the bonnet visible around the edges, but if that's the case how has BMW's kidney grill survived for so long?


marketing.
The latest BMWs have gone way too far with that grille.

I think all Beemer styling has become a bit hate or love in the last 10-15 years.  I guess BMW fans will think its gorgeous, but others will think its pretty ugly.

I think the Irmscher grill with a charcoal or body colour frame suits the facelift as the original grill is the only chome on the car and looks tacky for it.

Been a while since I added any posts to this thread, car has had an easier life since the 530D appeared on the drive a couple of years ago but does still get used for local trips and the odd run out to blow the cobwebs away.

As per the recent wanted add, I had to obtain a second hand rear screen as Autoglass etc apparently couldn't obtain one from any supplier :( I guess these type of parts sourcing problems are to be expected on a car of this age and while I have a shed full of spares I never thought to cut the rear screen out of the last Omega I scrapped!  ;D
