    Wednesday Mod "bump strips"

    Followed the guide on forum - thanks Ffoeg
    http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...ht=bump+strips

    Old bumps



    Off...





    This is the centre clip you DONT want to break when taking off the front door strips




    And some bump strips well prep'd and painted later.......

    Ahh....the finished artical









    My strips for sale £23 delivered or £20 collected - pm me, paypal only or cash on collection (3 door ASTRA MK4)

    Come with all clips + 7 brand new spares for the front door bumps (incase you break some)

    I see removing them leaves holes in the bodywork. I read somewhere that a mk3 does not leave holes. Can anyone confirm this?

    Nicely done btw

    wow very nicely done. I think colour coding the strips improves the cars look about 25%. Instant modernization! The car is looking great overall really. whats next? Wheels?

    hell yea the wheels - although ive spent the last 3 weeks photoshopin wheels onto my car and I just cant decided. Its doin my nut

    Starting to think mine look ok (well from certain angles)



    I thought doing my GSI bumper at the weekend was the nuts - so doin my bumps today would be ok but wot a difference it makes.
    Until a granny/mum/chump smacks them with there door in a carpark

    no bought from a forum user - loads of sanding with various grades of sand sand paper. Plastic primer, paint, laquer. Worth the effort if ya do it right.
