Hey mate. Automotive was a subject offered at my high school (Country NSW). From years 7 to 12. And for my year 12 major project I rebuilt a 30. Only took it apart and put it back together with some nice paint etc. Was a good experience to know a 30 etc. And put the tappet cover that I painted in the Calais.

Got into Uni and leaving home, however Calais will stay in storage there. When i come back during holidays etc going to spend some cosmetics/necessities which need to be done. The other day i serviced her on due date, Plus got some new Spark Plugs for her.

- All new Brakes - VLT Front Calipers and Slotted / Drilled Rotors + Slotted Rears + Pads
- Retriming front Seats in Genuine Leather
- New Wheels Bearings
- New rear tyres + No walls
- Painting around windows Black
- New fuses, central locking fixed
- New Bushes or any other worn bits underneath
- Rewire the Stock Headunit and speakers.
- Repolish Calais wheels
- Boot release module
- And a few other small things.

All this will be done at the end of October when i go home.
Thanks guys, will obviously post photos during process.

Finally, I'm glad to see you are deciding to go factory turbo. I reckon if you are going to turbo it and do the brakes do it all before the respray so you don't ruin the paint.. You probably already know that lol anyway keep it updated!!

Contemplating the respray. The Alpine is actually freaking great. Only has about 3 small dints. Typical for a 27yr old car. But around the windows needs to be done black. Always been garaged. Known as a fact from the previous owner. But as I said. Doing a few things before the rego runs out. Taking her to Cruise for Charity Qld late next month so very excited to have one last awsome drive in it.

Alright guys, well since finishing 2nd session of Uni, went back to home and got the Calais. Got a roadworthy, took the white walls off. And organised to get some things painted on the car. Renewing the registration, simply because its easier. due at the end of the month. So by having a 5 month break off uni, the Calais is with me now up here at the coast... for a little while. Next time it goes back to home, its getting the door frames painted, new eye lids painted, and around the fuel cap done.

Its needs some new wheel bearings, and will get some other little things done while its up here.

Photos.
Took the car cover off and hello darling.


New lids, have a new assembly thanks to Dustin (Turismo)




Repolished the 15s.

No walls

Looks slammed now wtf.

Cruisng to the coast.

Note* These are the original Lid assembly-not new set.



Some night shots
