    Halasz's Modification Diary

    Though id start a diary as im going to be doing quite a few mods in the next few months. Not as extreme as some but im going to be making my totally basic 1.6 8V into some hopefully much sportier. its a w reg astra mk4 in flame red, 36k on the clock.

    The inside as it came.



    The outside as standard (note, i added the mirrors, the came black and i wanted colour coded, but i dont have pics before this point)



    The rear end :P (that just a tip not an exhaust! :P, soon to be replace with a full system, cat back)




    The engine bay. (cleannnnnnn )



    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    The the first mods started.

    First thing i wanted to do was my sound system, compard to some its not amazing, but it works, i did it all myself and it was my first install so i am pretty pleased with it. Im running,

    sony headunit 52w x 4
    kenwood componenets (no pics)
    pioneer 330w 6x9's
    2 jbl 12" subs
    2 jbl amps (400 or 600 watts cant remeber which!)

    the pioneers



    eveything else. (note the 6x9 wires need sorting, any ideas anyone?)



    All in all im pretty please with the system, it turns heads.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    THEN THE EXTERIOR MODS CAME:

    i took delivery of some irmscher side skirts and matching spoiler yesterday, after driving round every garage in the counth i could think of the cheapest i could get them fit for was 141quid so i thought to myself ill have a weack at it myself, 3-4 hours later i was finished and it looks perfect to me :S dead easy looks like you guys where right! i was literally poo'ing myself when drilling the back haha.

    side view



    full car

    and so the airbox was derestriced, panel filter and veccy c intake to come this week!

    if anyones worried about doing this, its very easy and dosnt take long at all! and even without the veccy c, and new panel filter you can feel a acc difference!

    took my ages to get it in place and that, but it works a really treat, sounds like a vaccumn when i put my foot down, and looks brill to show people!
