    Bringing Closure to my first mk4 astra (pics)

    Its been 18 months since I sold it and nearly 2 years since I had the photos taken for my total vauxhall feature, and 17 months since they were printed.

    Many know, that I regretted selling it and even the replacement GSi Turbo didnt do the job...so with a property in sight I decided to get a bespoke bit of art done for the hallway/lounge.

    Included the show and shine plaque I won at VBOA 2005, and the VBOA 2005 plaque itself.

    Thanks to Pete Jones (Painz) for the inspiration, as he did the same with his corsa feature.

    Thanks to a couple of members on here to make it possible too

    So here we are:













    Im well pleased with it

    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
