    Today's bargain!

    Spent all day helping a mate fix his Mitsu Colt as the window was held up with blocks of wood to keep the glass in.

    Anyway, we took a trip to the scrappy and we found a Colt and the exact part we need and some other little cool inside bits for it.

    I spotted a silver astra estate and I got the boot lifter part (bit with the lock in it) in mint condition and in the same colour for £10!!!!!

    I was going to have the rear bumper aswell, but it had been *******ized in the crash, d'oh!

    Will fit it later tonight and slap some pics up, so so so chuffed!

    (if you hadn't guessed, mine was black plastic crap)

    My Softstars go on Friday morning as I get paid Thursday so I can get some rubber, will clean up all the crap behind and give the calipers a good cleaning and a coat of black paint.

    Might order these too.....yumm

    Well fitted it this morning, looks much better than the black plastic one.

    Shame I couldn't have had the bumper as that would have finished it off nicely.
