    That's a great looking car and very rare now. I use footman James for insurance on a policy with 3 old Vauxhalls and I am happy with them. Enjoy your car when you get it and welcome.

    They certainly are. Going to start swapping bits over and get the white one as tidy as possible.

    Good info there wasn't aware of that. Its probably the worst car I've ever driven tbh and although it has mot until October I won't be driving it anywhere. This is the better of the two repairs to the arches It's a shame that it's been badly repaired as its a good colour and according to owners club there's only 3 H plate 8v's with current mot left. Had it been left alone it may have been salvageable but I'm not entertaining that idea and as you say a donor is no bad thing ?

    Yeah a pair of early Calibra's. The black one is an 8v and unfortunately is fairly rotten. Previous owner has had a go at sills and arches but it's a pretty poor repair - including gaffer tape and is only good for spares. Its got all the bits I need for the white one so that's what it will be used for.

    Yes my reliable modern car let me down but in its defence it has fixed itself. As for the Calibra that is getting there but I'm going to have to do a bit of work to get the hand brake working due to the way the shoes and other bits are mounted.

    Thanks chaps. Get it bought Matt. I had to use mine yesterday to get to work as my daily car wouldn't rev past idle when I went out in the morning. Calibra got a good wash and a few new bits of trim fitted for its efforts ?

    GreyDJ: That's very kind of you and is much appreciated. If I make it to Billing I will see you ok for a drink Greg: Cheers mate. I need this car like a hole in the head but then again I'm sure with how many Vauxhall's you have you know what I mean. Matt: Do you want them emailed?

    GreyDJ:. That's exactly the info I was after thank you . If you have a spare manual yeah I'd be interested. Just let me know what it costs. Matt:. I sent you text with photos etc. Steven:. I'll update occasionally as I do a few bits to the car. I'll also get some photos of the brakes when I change them as they are a bit special

    No it was an early hatch. I'll try and find it for you mate and I'll text link to you.

    That's the thing I was thinking earlier. Who would bodge brakes when you can pick the parts up so cheaply? You could actually save me a headache if you don't mind John. The boot lock is temperamental and I know it works as previous owner opened it but I don't have the knack. Can you tell me how the lock positions work? I assume it's locked with key vertical and it turns clockwise and presses in to release?
