    Preparing for PV

    Started this morning - nothing drastic - wash/wax the car then the wheels inside and out, glass, chrome and back to blacked, dusted the inside. took nearly 4 hours but hey-ho.

    All finished by 8.55!!

    Shoved the beast in the garage until preperation phase 2 takes place mid-week.
    why do today what you can...... I'll finish this later

    2958cc was 175BHP @ 4000rpm, 370Nm (273lb.ft.) @ 1900rpm NOW 230BHP/469Nm (344.9lb/ft)!! www.IUsedToOwnTwoAstras.com

    I washed mine today, no point in polishing it, as it will be in the bodyshop again on Wednesday. I did the final mods in the inside last night, the new oojah for in the boot will be here either Tuesday or Wednesday and I fitted the engine under bonnet thingy last week
