    My car...almost complete :D

    Thought i'd whack a few pics of my astra up as she's almost complete! Just needs a repair job on the front bumper where an idiot reversed into it, and a few stone chips sorted out!

    Aside from when Pete had the bumper (this is his old 1) i've never seen the kit (front n back bumper) on any other astra!



    (Red mudflaps are going! They are just a tempoary measure at the mo! )


    Just need to lower it a tad, maybe sort the grey strip down the side (although it does break up the white nicely) and finish off the sound system and then its done!

    What d'yall think then?

    paint the side trims, get some silvertec bulbs for front indicators(if available for angel headlights) and get some different number plates on

    also lower it a tad. other then that looks good
    life's to fast to go slow. so get the turbo.

    One of those cars that wont be to everyones tastes but it looks very original, nicely done.

    (Personally i think it would look awsome spoilerless, different lights and lowered)

    I would whip the flaps off though but leave the side strips black, otherwise it might be too white.

    Looks very well done, but do find it quite ugly.

    Nice rally slag look, really really like the red flaps, breaks it up a bit.
