    v6 gsi prodject

    hi guys. this is my prodject

    I bought an astra sport 1.8 about a year ago wanting to try and make a gsi look a like,

    got the full body kit in spec blue thinking it would match, mine was more of a purple.

    I got a v6 dropped in about 5 months ago and it was going well.
    then the cluch packed in so i bought my self a run around and took if off road,. to sort engine out and get a full respray but just befor xmas i found one goin cheep so im just swoping every thing over

    ooo had some fun today trying to move rad forward, i had to butcher slam panel abit , wish i didnt have to do it but there was no other way.



    it need's abit of cleaning up but i took ages to get it in

    also fitted HID light conversion will post a few pic 4 u all, heard a few people finding it proplems

    well bulbs are easy just run the wires through the rubber


    then i postioned the converter boxes were the wires would reach

    i put the earth wire on the fixin bracket

    then i routed the the wire across behind the rad

    then connect to the bettery. connect up the old light connecter. think it must be 4 hi/lo beam
