Go Back   Saxperience - Citroen Saxo Forum > Blogs > My fourth and final VT

I started my driving life with a 106 ( dont hate me) but soon rear ended another car with it shortly after passing my test back in 2007.

This was followed shortly after by my much loved and moded Posi Blue VTR. After encountering my first problem, a quick internet search ended me up discovering Sax-P .

Much money, blood, sweat, miles and years later here I am with (another) mint Saxo which has so far lasted longer than my last one only because it was taken off the road to preserve/work on it. Below is the story of how its gone so far

**Pictures (lets face it thats what most people want to see are to come)**

Engine is pretty much all back together now. Think i have a leak from the top heater matrix hose but cant find the source of it.... strange! Will have another look tommorow

Bonnet and grille were taken to my mates on monday he had them sprayed and ready to pick up yesterday (tuesday) which was great! £60 all in too One thing learned though, dont try and remove a bonnet yourself if your trying not to scratch it

Almost got my oil catch tank fitted too but cross threaded ont of the fittings (schoolboy error since i'm an engineer) and marked the paint SO thats currently getting re-painted in the house.

Calipers and battery tray are also mid-painted. The caliper paint I've got is really thin and a b***h to paint over black though

Rocker covers and Strut Brace are getting powdercoated just now. Should be done actually, just to go get them

Ordered and on their way:
New caliper decals,
Carbon Fibre Coilpack cover,
Hi-temperature paint,
Fabric Spray for my flock parts,
Magnex Backbox,
Dash Led's need changed,
Chrome gearstick and dash dial surrounds fitted

Still to do:
Re-fit bonnet and grille
Wrap and fit manifold, - Heatwrap and cable ties arrived yesterday so left to soak and will wrap in the morning
Carbon parts need fitted to finish off the bay,
Finish painting calipers
Fit new discs and calipers,
Fit flocked bits,
Fit exhaust and backbox,
Dash Led's need changed,
Chrome gearstick and dash dial surrounds fitted,
Rear badges need painted

Tired just thinking about it
