    Default 2007 RED C2 VTS Progress Thread

    Hi All,
    This is the start of my thread for my 2007 VTS C2. I have owned it a couple of months and just joined the club to gain knowledge and talk to the members. I brought the car standard with 36,000 miles on the clock and 2 previous owners. It was unmodified but had been looked after and kept to a good condition by the previous owners, inside and out.

    I have started to modify the car very slowly in the months i have it and plan to keep updating on what ive done in the coming year..2013! I love the little car and will never part with it..Thanks, Steve

    Modifications:
    . Cat Back Stainless Peco Exhaust, 2 inch with center box into 3.5 inch backbox inward rolled
    . K & N Panel Airfilter (Using standard airbox)
    . Brembo Discs & Pads all round
    . Short Stubby Roof Arial
    . Various stickers...

    Modifications to come...:
    . Smoked lexus style rear lights
    . 100w Ice Blue xeneon Headlight Bulbs
    . ...and Spax 30mm lowering Springs if the budget goes well

    Thanks for looking and reading

    Steve

    It's only because a lot of people lookout for modifications. My thread is basically a mini restoration build so I'm not moding the hell out of it, just few nice changes are the way forward I think

    UPDATE:

    Right then the bad weather has seemed to of passed and been out and taken a few good shots of the car cleaned up Ive done a few tweaks here and then around the car and happy with the results.

    Ive put my Loeb center caps on and cleaned the alloys up from the winter weather and impressed with the look, the suzuka alloys suit the car so well ive decided to keep the rims and not change.

    Secondly my club stickers arrived so placed them on the side windows with my k&n ones..the h&r stickers are on there and the springs are waiting to go on next week..

    Ive carbon wrapped a few things under the bonnet, well attempted and happy with my work. Im not the best and neatest diy man about but tried my hardest

    I also got my pressed plates on..was a bit tricky getting them to stick but got there in the end lol

    Lastly I put in some good elbow grease and cleaned the manifold and degreased the plastic parts and got them shiny Hope you like the pics!

    Next...H&R springs and both top mounts and upping the backbox into the bumper a little more, as a little low I think?

    Steve

    Right then..quick update got my springs fitted today and well happy. Nipped the wing in the process and put a 5 pence size scuff in the wing getting the shock out I have upped the backbox into the rear bumper a little aswell to fill the cutout and pleased with the results..some reason the pipe is louder now but cant work out why haha..
    Replaced the rear number plate bulbs for orsam blue ones and look nice..

    Next steps..
    . Gas Bonnet Strut
    . Tint the front fogs yellow
