    Default Guy's Show Winning 3.0 V6

    citroen c2vtr.jpg

    Recent picture of the car.



    Car when bought - everything standard

    Bought her in 2012 - she's on a 59 plate, bought her at 9000 miles and over the year she's been hammered and it's just hit 24k on the clock. We've had our disagreements (mostly things breaking) but I've recently got her resprayed and looking tip top! Here are a few things I've done.

    Before the Ash hoses were put on



    Hoses fitted, just need to work on the rocker cover and the battery/fuse box


    It's only a 1.1 (insurance was stupid, I had to pay 3k insurance just for this)

    She's had a new Induction kit with ASH silicone hoses and a K&N Sponge filter.

    ASH Blue cable trims to neaton up the wiring and other plumbing

    Stainless steel manifold cover originally for a saxo but I tried it and it fit!

    Future plans - looking into painting the rocker cover blue and the battery box a fuse box blue also, I'm in works with a mate to make me a custom stainless steel induction filter cover that will neaten up the bay and minimise the heat being sucked in from the manifold

    VTS spoiler fitted along with the C2 club stickers and a comedy value "snap off cos it's French decal" (because so far things keep snapping off)

    VTS side skirts fitted, used tiger seal and bricks to support the trim whilst it sets, worked out really well, massive thanks to AntFLZ for the help!

    Had some left over wrap for the lights, so AntFLZ stuck some on the side repeaters, what do you guys think so far?

    This was the picture that the site owner (Den) took outside my work place haha! Was a little curious to why a police car had stopped and and leaning over to look at it (I was panicking that my insurance has ran out without me realising)

    Anyway a week or so later, my mate texts me saying that my car had been posted on the c2 forum, and when I checked out the picture.. Guess what I found!




    Never laughed so much in my life haha

    I've got some genuine mud-flaps to go on soon, bought some decals off the bay to make them look a bit more appealing, not sure how long they will last but it's worth a shot let us know what you think!

    Me and a mate fitted the mud flaps today, luckily the weather held out and was a pretty easy job!





    And one of me being totally ridiculous

    Haven't got the front ones fitted mate! I've heard they don't go on easy because of the side skirts anyway

    Some more pictures of the car at the minute, just ordered some rear window decals to bring it up to the spoiler

    Managed to salvage myself a Renault espace splitter as well from a farmer in Blackburn for 25quid! give it a good clean and a bit of a sanding and it will look a treat compared to the standard So me and AntFLZ will be taking the bumper off fitting it on Monday

    Also have a LUKE tow strap in white on its way as well as a smaller Tow sticker in black as I don't like the way the one I have on is sitting at the moment.


    Sportex exaust will be going on, getting prices for fitting it next month.

    Coilovers are on the list as well. Just getting a quote from the insurance before I fit.

    Colour code wing mirrors in red and white and VTR decals ready to go on, on Monday let me know what you think! ImageUploadedByTapatalk1371341420.658370.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1371341440.872034.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1371341454.660080.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1371341466.954850.jpg

    Don't pay to get your exhaust fitted, it's one of the most simple things you can do.

    Also my hands are hurting cause of your bloody splitter, next time I'm bringing my drill!
