    I go to work and pay for some else to do my car yes, but then they are skilled and get a perfect finish I would not if it was me doing it. Dont under estimate trades man and skills with your hands - its not rocket science but its also not a doddle!

    Well done for having a go yourself, I hope you get the finish you are hoping for

    The finish i'm hoping for is just 1 that im happy with. But then doing stuff yourself you critisize it more... i.e. my seats.. any1 that doesn't know i done them myself thinks they look pro... i on the other hand have my areas im not happy with.

    I read it the same too mate to be honest. I mean at the end of the day the car looks a complete mess at the moment, or it did 2 weeks ago, without serious hours and a major turn around of fortune it wont look much better when its done - ohhhh IMO of course

    all you've illustrated in this thread is how in several easy steps you can ruin an astra dashboard?


    Theres no need to have a dig at mat, he works harder than you could believe to build the car he wants, yes, some people have a dig and criticise him for it, but at the end he will have his ideal car which will have been done professionally with no expense spared and will be unique.
