Cheers for the feedback guys (lubs etc) - would like to get an Opel grille but did they ever make an Opel "VH" equivalent?? all the Opels seem to be "VB" "VC" equivalents..

Am taking the panels to the painter today - hopefully he will be all finished come the weekend..

If anything it would be an Opel Senator A2 stationwagon (or what ever the German word for stationwagon is) if they even made a wagon in this shape. Even then the A2 facelift, when they went to the same shape lights as yours, is also when they went to the full colour coded and plastic bumpers, with the black inserts. So no, I don't think your car has an Opel equivalent. It's an Opel Rekord stationwagon, with Senator lights, guards and bonnet, with Commodore bumpers :lol: (and HQ running gear :P ).

Wicked, that second senator is sweet. The flattened the nose though aye, so if you were to try fit that grill looks like you'd need bonnet, then the bumper wouldn't look right and don't want to change to boring plastic ones.

Just make it low and noisy and who cares about what badge/grill is on the front?

fwiw, all the vk shaped monza bits seem to still be available from europe. the guy from the holden dealership around the corner often comes around to borrow our microfiche reader as they turfed theirs out years ago :lol:
