Uprated Gas 22 point adjustable shock absorbers added
These are basically Vauxhall Viva/Firenza based shocks from AVO.
To compliment the shocks I had 25% stiffer springs made up, unfortunately they were not sized correctly to allow for the extra spring resistance and the ride height is too high for the rear. The front is OK by virtue of the heavier V8 engine. The manufacturers are re-supplying lower rear springs to correct this.
I've also finally had the wheels professionally refurbished by Pristine. I've had just the diamond pattern and the centre boss painted black the rest is left with a high polish.
The interior has had some treatment the centre console has now been finished in brushed steel to go with the centre panel and glove box front. The gear lever gaiter is black leather with chrome surround. The seats have been refurbished in black and blue velour facing, black vinyle back and sides, to colour co-ordinate with the car.
This is my 2 year old son Luc making an early bid for the car.
