Well must be about time I started one of these for the new car. As some of you know the last astra project came to holt as i wanted to do things properly and there was just too much rust on the last shell for me to ever be pleased. I set it back to standard, kept all the goodies and sold it on for double the price i brought it for, so im all happy!

Old Astra Diary

I was on the look out for a nice 1.4/1.6 GLS in great condishon with about a grand to spend preferably in green and this came up!!

Cost: £950

>>1996 Vauxhall Astra 1.4i GLS 16v
>>Brand new MOT with £800 spent the week before i brought it.
>>12 months tax
>>£170 Bluetooth headunit







Getting petrol on the two hour drive home I noticed the horrible wheel trims :heh:







Ive owned it a week now but due to the weather all ive done is too put the nice black cav gsi alloys on with brand new set of toyo proxys. Also put on angel crystal indies!!





:nod:Plans:nod:

>> Lowering 60mm as you can see is needed!
>> Full GSI kit, Type S Splitter, Rear Rieger bumper!
>> Put in my Gsi seats and Black dash
>> Black door cards
>> Splitter
>> Black rear lights
>> Black angels
>> Induction kit
>> Racing pipe
>> Decat
>> Get my ice back in, custom boot build in wheel well?
>> Loads more to come!!


Cheers Guys
