Cool Gurnzilla's pimpin ZR 160 Progress

Hi everyone!

Got a ZR 160 a few weeks ago now and I want to get a few mods done on it, so I thought I should make a progress thread. My last car was Saxo VTR and I never got round to making a thread, which was a shame!

Things that are on my list first...
- Paint brakes
- Upgrade ICE
- New Badges/ De-badge
- New backbox/ full exhaust
- New intake system
- Lowering!
- New wheels, love the ZS Mk2's in anthracite grey
- Window tints
- Possibly some alacantara seats if they pop up
And anything which looks good and I can steal!

Got some piccies of the original car first:





Will keep it updated regularly!

First Mods complete, only small stuff I know but proud of what i've done so far as i'm a bit of DIY disaster master!

De-badged the back which looks pretty sweet, did the old kettle trick to get the badges off and I teased them off easy as pie. I did the side flags as well because they were so faded. Debating whether to go all the way and take off the 160 badges as well..?



And with complementary dick drawings from my mates:



As i'm on a roll, I got round to doing my brakes as well, took me a couple of days actually as I got held up by the good old british weather! Think they look pretty nice but may not be to everyones taste. Took my time and got plenty of coats of the Hammerite on!

Got a wicked new badge from Dazzer in the post, cheers man! Couldn't resist the transformers



And gave it a good polish, think it's come up pretty well





Next thing up is to get the sound system sorted...
