    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
