From where you get the Number Plate Surround???
I must get one for My Beautiful Calibra, here in Australia...

I got it from one lad on a local Calibra forum for a bargain :)
They used to appear on a German eBay, but usually are sold for a crazy sums

F28 has been mounted and it was discovered, that gearbox has it's usual problem - crunching 2nd gear... However I've managed to find new original synchromesh gear rings.
So do hope my gearbox will work fine soon.
Meantime also tx box has been reinforced in swedish style :) Will get it cooled as well soon.

Will have to take a look on how to fit newer cruise control from Vectra.

After being traveling with a car (not Calibra, just rented TDi) in different mountain areas I guess I have to go for a biturbo 8)
Luckily we have had a positive experience with biturbo setup on Calibra before.

Couple of new bits arrived:
- Bosch 300lph fuel pump
- Reinforced Sachs Performance clutch cover
- one more 1st-2nd gear OEM synchro, as I decided to refurbish whole box, and not just change one crunching 2nd gear synchro

Next step - 5 bolt wheel hubs from later Calibra/Vectra, SAAB/Vectra GSi caliper holders and 3xx brake disc to the front.
BTW if anybody has used SAAB/Vectra GSi calipers for sale - please let me know.
100GBP for new set from LMF is not an option for the time being.
