    Next thing to do is make the masking for the DVD entrance so i took a piece of plastic to make it


    I cut it out with a mechanical saw and sanded it with sander-sanding paper and file.

    Here is a preview of how it could look like:




    Next cut the mask to make it fit the button pad of the lilliput !!!

    so now, I've been giving my calibra some major overhaul.
    Changed rear shock absorbers and brake paddles all by myself (yeah I know I'm cool).

    Next thing we're gonna do soon is change the front shock absorbers.

    Meanwhile lets concentrate on the dash.
    Time to bondo it and sand / dremel it.

    Here is how it's coming out.

    I decided to go for the silver-black hard interiors. So why not re-paint the entire trunk and get new gaiters?

    Here goes...
