    Colour Coding Pics!!

    Well ladies and gents, the waiting is over. I have now bothered myself to take some pics of the car after I had the colour coding done over the Christmas period.

    The bits that went under the spray gun were; the crappy black bumpers, door handles, bump strips, roof rails, boot handle, side skirts and the wing mirrors

    Before - Black plastic



    As it stands now









    Before anyone says it, i know it needs cleaning. but its been raining since i got back and im decorating so time is of the essence.

    also I have a prodrive rear skirt to go on courtesy of navacabrio and will probably get an irmscher fron skirt aswell

    as usual, your comments are welcome (even yours jam)

    couldn't tell ya mate. A guy i know did it in his bodyshop for me. he did an excellent job, smoothed the rough texture off the plastic.

    Thanks for the comments guys. There are more pics in my gallery (link in sig). also you can see the whole progression on there from when i bought it as a standard envoy with all the mod cons of the 80's. will do an astra auto biography when ive finished decorating
