Great work man!
One thing that stuck out to me was your rear boot lip. Where did you get that from? I've been really keen to try and get something just like that on mine. Did you get it ready made for the calibra or cut it down from a universal one?

Cheers

Discs are identical. But what about Zafira calipers/carriers? As far as I aware they won't fit to Calibra... :roll:

Thanks :) I got it from the German eBay. But IIRC this was the seller.
No cutting work involved, just paining. It came with adhesive tape on the bottom.

Now I catch you :)
Thanks for the advise, mate.

I am thinking about ATE PowerDisc + EBC Greenstuff to the front...

Spring is here, Calibra is being prepared for the new season.
Besides a/m brake discs I got EBC YellowStuff for front, HEL Performace brake lines and CL Racing brake fluid

Image

Calipers are going to be refurbished and powdercoated black before installation.

Another bonus for Calibra - I finally bought a head unit I was planning to get - Becker Indianapolis Pro.
With its kinda retro design it has plethora of quite modern features like mp3, navi, bluetooth :dance:

Image

More things to come :)

I hope we'll bring the car back to roards still in this week.
Once Calibra will be started I will post a list with recent updates, as not everything can be seen on pictures 8)
