  • Tony's Red/Blue Progress

    So i think its about time i added a progress onto here as its been over 1 year and i still havent done it
    So anyways here it goes...

    Brought my Red 1.0 Life D on 2nd Febuary 2010. And this is how it looked..

    Sorry i only have one image of it standard -.-

    Sorry i dont have any images of a step by step of the modding as i didnt know about VXRonline. So after 1 Week of Intense Modding it looked like this..






    This Included The complete VXR Kit inside and out. Just got 18" VXR Wheels to add to the list

    It stayed like this for about 1 month until the little mods came into action.

    1st Piano Black Centre Console


    2nd Parrot Hands Free


    3rd Red Heater Rings


    4rd Red Speedo Dials


    5th Red Footwell Lights & Interior Light



    6th Insignia Washer Jets


    7th Wind Deflectors


    8th LED Number Plate Lights


    9th HID's


    10th Aux Input as its a Life and doesnt come with Aux


    11th Subwoofer


    12th Remus Backbox but later realized it wont fit becuase of the spare wheel well -.-


    Then Progress was on hold for about 2 months because i had no dollar :P

    Here are some images i took after a detail...







    Once i had some Money in my bank it was back to the modding..

    13th New Number Plate T6NHY Just got to get around to adding it onto the car


    Anddd....Then it went back on hold again

    So After about 1 Month had gone passed. I got bored of the car and put it up for sale and nearly did sell it..but the buyer backed out at the last minute -.-

    Then i decided to do something major to the car by giving it a Full Respray (Arden Blue)

    Before:


    During:



    After:

    And No thats not me





    This time got the Front Bumper, Side Skirt End Caps & Bonnet Clear Vinyl Wrapped because i had millions of stone chips before!!

    Gave it a full Detail today...took 5 Hours to complete and I had to take some images of it shining
    Picture Quality isn't the best as they were taken off my iPhone. Need to get a better camera










    And before people start saying...Change your alloys...Don't worry im on the case, Trying to get some VXR 18" on the car. Shouldn't be long now

    And this is my only Progress thread im making and i don't want silly comment like I have been getting on my previous threads about "why put a VXR badge on it when its not" "why spray it blue, should of done something different" Blah Blah Blah...Its my car and its suppose to replicate the real thing

    More Modding still to come

    Enjoy

    UPDATE - Number Plate!

    Well finally got my Private Number Plate added to my car. Also gave it a detail









    And some after it had rained over night :P





    Enjoy

          Then once took it home it was change to standard YH07 XHP
          Then ive add my private plate on MR07 RAL with was ment to stand for MR T RAI but i later found out it stands for MR ORAL aswell LOL! so ice bought another one now T6NHY which needs to be added to the car
          ok another silly question .. if it was on an 09 plate .. im guessing its registered in 2009 .. why did the dvla put an 07 plate back on as standard not an 09 ??

                but your car is 4x100, the VXR is 5x110


                you need to swap a lot more then only the wheels... nice replica btw

                Corsa OPC Arden // blacked roof // gm alarm // AFL OEM // armster // all led interior // carbon fiber alike difusor & fog surroundings & badges // insignia jets // forge subframe brace // team dynamics 1.2 gloss black 18" // Nurburgring Lip // KW V2

                    My intial reaction was "why go to all this expense and just get a real one" but, aside from the obvious insurance benefits, I must say that looking at the original car you've done a fantastic job.

                    The only mod I would question is the one above. I wouldn't let someone crap on my car for free, let alone pay them for it!

                          Nice replica mate

                          One question tho, what's with all the number plate changes, started in top ones as YK08 or 09 then went to YK07 XHP then to MR07 RAL!

                            Really nice car lots of work put in built not bought anyone could buy a VXR but you have something you can look at knowing you've done it yourself. Plus stick the VXR lump in and your tax wont change lol

                              the first image isnt of my car its a example..as i didnt have a pic of my car standard becuase is was changed to a vxr rep 1 week later. YK07 XHP is the cars standard plate and MR07 RAL is my private plate
