yeah shame I can read it lol
Google Translate will get you there largely that's how I was able to read what the site said
more good work on the car keep it up
Thanks Tomo good luck on your own Calibra project
A look in the kitchen/office (dinner table to be specific), this is what I've been doing all afternoon yesterday and ever since this morning: going through every single bill that was paid for the car so far and put them in chronologically sorted order ....
you do an excepttionel work on your car ! love it !
Thanks, I keep doing my best to pull out all possible stops for a stunning presentation for the appraiser Sad thing is that my painter will go on a 1 week holiday to Silverstone tomorrow so I don't expect to be making updates as speedy as I would like.
Right, managed to locate 2 badly needed brand new OEM fuel hoses through a German Opel dealership not too far from here and they were also able to order me the mirror control button with the switch to operate the Japan Only folding mirrors, now all I need to do is find the right side inner mirror arm 1426920 and a few feet of color coded wiring to make it all work together.
One minor thing is that I will have to compare the wiring schemes because the mirror control switch I'm getting is a RHD one.
And today (thanks to a thoughtful fellow on a Dutch Opel forum) I seem to have found a 100% NEW Calibra Turbo OEM end muffler with EXACTLY the right part number (per opeloem.com) for cheap in an old parts stash from a dealership, this restoration journey keeps getting better and better!
Yup, there she is in 2 pics the seller made I am about to spontaneously combust from joy
And the latest addition is now home, one of the very last Calibra Turbo end mufflers with the correct part no. 90423148 8 52 941
Been to the German dealership again this afternoon in between work where some nice bits were waiting for me. They say the devil is in the details as they say, a new antenna sprite and.... tire pressure prescription decal to go on the inner side of the fuel cap
And now.......... *drumroll*......... except for 1 mirror arm (GM #90510356, Opel # 14 26 920) these are all the parts for the Japan Only mirrors. The arm that can be seen here and the relais were already present, today the mirror switch was added to the bunch (note the light grey dot)
Wow. Very nice and detailed project. Hope to start something like yours soon. Luck!
I want your silencer lol
Folks I just put the phone down with yet another company that claimed to have it but didn't, if anyone can help me get GM #90510356, Opel # 14 26 920 I would appreciate it VERY MUCH!!!!

Have you emailed or called Autovaux at all?
#No1 In the TINTIN Fan ClubEin Projekt, das ist eine nie endende Entwicklung
Daily - Vectra C 1.9 CDTI (120bhp)
Track - W Reg Mk5 Zetec-S Fiesta
I did just that yesterday evening, still need to hear back from them or just try calling. Do they have a reputation for being able to get rare parts?
Nope just called and autovaux doesn't have it either, this is starting to look very bad
good read with good pictures, a true enthusiast.
and the calibra's are not down and out just yet........
OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW BETTER , YOUNG ENOUGH TO DO IT AGAIN.......
Not yet if there will be more people like me who will want to keep them alive and not butcher them just for the engine and other parts. Maintaining them is SO much easier thanks to opeloem.com that there should not be an excuse anymore to just junk them!
Now about that illusive mirror arm .....
This been a long talking about folding mirrors, with many rumors and other things, and your topic is very useful for it. No rumors, no crazy DIY things, just buy, set and forget.
Many thanks from Russia Caly club.
"No rumors, no crazy DIY things, just buy, set and forget"
You read my mind perfectly Now someone PU-FUGGING-LEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE get me the only item I need to buy set and forget !!
