Vectra B Caravan Turbo
Hi, my name is Danijel and I live in Serbia.

I know that you petrol heads, just like me, always like to see the whole process of modifying our cars (projects). Who knows, maybe somebody can get some good idea from the pics Wink.

Since I entered forum here with the pretty much finished car, I wanted to show you few pics of my project before - during - after mods:


Here are my 1997. Vectra B Caravan (estate) CD Exclusive (pretty much everything possible except the sunroof) in a stock condition, apart from the wheels and restyling grille:

[Image: DSC_0023.jpg]

[Image: DSC_0032.jpg]

[Image: DSC_0037.jpg]

then came the OPC look phase:

[Image: p1030325yo0.jpg]

[Image: p1030334et7.jpg]

[Image: p1030184fl6.jpg]

[Image: p1030092cs9.jpg]

[Image: p1030255yo6.jpg]

[Image: p1030220pq6.jpg]

[Image: p1030293wu1.jpg]

... then came in the audio/video system:

[Image: p1020302cb3.jpg]

[Image: P1030263.jpg]

[Image: P1030266.jpg]

[Image: P1030274.jpg]

[Image: P1030003.jpg]

[Image: P1030280.jpg]

[Image: P1030006.jpg]

[Image: P1030388.jpg]

to be contunued....
... then came the LED lighting:

[Image: 8925155.jpg]

[Image: 8925160.jpg]

winter edition:

[Image: 8925165.jpg]

[Image: 8925170.jpg]

... up until that point, all was really just only the styling of the car ...

but then I made the decision to put in C20LET, turbo engine and F28, 6 speed gearbox:

[Image: P1120626.jpg]

[Image: P1120628.jpg]

[Image: P1120639.jpg]

[Image: P1120641.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0433.jpg]

so we started the project:

[Image: IMAG0429.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0472.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0486.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0487.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0492.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0499.jpg]

to be continued...
... and this was my meaning of transportation while I was waiting for my Veccy:

Opel Kadett GSi 2.0 16V

[Image: IMAG0477.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0573.jpg]

...and in the meantime, the project goes on:

[Image: IMAG0545.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0563.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0564.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0565.jpg]

... and on:

[Image: IMAG0611.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0613.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0617.jpg]

[Image: 20120829_131715.jpg]

[Image: 20120829_131637.jpg]

[Image: 20120829_131604.jpg]

[Image: 20120829_133823.jpg]

[Image: 20120829_134158.jpg]

....until finally:

[Image: 20120830_184200.jpg]

[Image: 20120830_184249.jpg]

... and then little more of styling:

rear diffuser:

[Image: IMAG0677.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0679.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0683.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0689.jpg]

to be continued...
...and "bad look":

[Image: IMAG0675.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0657.jpg]

[Image: IMAG0658.jpg]

...before repainting:

[Image: P1130460.jpg]

[Image: P1130463.jpg]

[Image: P1130464.jpg]

[Image: P1130458.jpg]

[Image: P1130467.jpg]

... and after:

[Image: 20120910_205757.jpg]

carbon look roof:

[Image: 20120910_213015.jpg]

finalizing:

[Image: 20120923_193346.jpg]

[Image: 20120922_164842.jpg]

[Image: 20120923_193320.jpg]

[Image: P1130561.jpg]

[Image: P1130560.jpg]

fitting the exhaust system:

[Image: 20121008_152244.jpg]

[Image: 20121008_152257.jpg]

[Image: 20121008_152317.jpg]

[Image: 20121008_155322.jpg]

to be continued...
finally:

[Image: P1130821.jpg]

[Image: P1130729.jpg]


...and finally, the car as it is today:

[Image: 458254.jpg]

[Image: 458315.jpg]

[Image: 458260.jpg]

[Image: 458265.jpg]

Thanks m8.

Rear diffuser was custom built from my drawings just for me. I combined 3 of my fav diffusers into one: the hats on top of end pipes are from MB C63 AMG's diffuser, the ribs (fins) are from Audi S6, and the way that diffuser are connected to the rear bumper are from Ford Focus ST's diffuser.

They made a PC rendering, I liked it, and then they made it for me Big Grin.

here are a few PC renderings:

RE: Vectra B Caravan Turbo
Custom.... Awesome. I love a car were there is imagination used n not just off the shelf parts or easy to find bits.

Bet she owes you a lot though but well worth it.

There is no such thing as custom and cheap, but it was definitely worth every penny Wink
