the black mamba

by tosh1985 » Sat Sep 13, 2014 1:04 pm

did a few late nights this week to help get some work on her, she's looking like a train wreck but it'll have to get worse before it gets better...
removed all trim, windows, handle, lights and bumpers then on with a bit of sanding, even started filling the roof rails..
started to break the v6 for parts so all replacement trims an rubbers are all gunna be preped an treated for fitment.
running out of room for parts so seems my bedroom decor project has been put on hold for calibra parts storage lol

I sometimes wish Opel hadn't put the roof racks and gone with a more clean look like you are going for on the roof man. Keen to see the final product here man!
