    Exclamation Introduction

    I have been a member of AS for a while now and recently a member of AOC and i thought it was about i time i formally introduced myself to you guys!

    My Name is Jon, I'm 17 and from colchester and currently have NO drivers Licence.
    Although i have no licence i currently own 2 cars. A corsa b(For Sale £250, see swapshop for details and pics), and a 5 Door Astra G, its a 1.4 16v and its a lovely burgundy . I have So far put 17inch Toora Alloy wheels on it, de-restricted the air box, and yet to fit the Veccy-c pipe i purchased many moons ago also have a mattig debadged grille and M3 style mirrors. I have Installed myself an infinity reference 7521a amp, Infinity 12" sub and a Sony CDXF555 headunit with CD changer. I am pleased with the result i got from wiring that up myself with help from a few guys in the ICE help section!
    I passed my theory test recently and I will be booking my practical shortly.(if i book now i will be looking about 5-6weeks before i can take my test)
    Once i pass i hope i will be welcome to attend some meets and show myself amongst the community and get more involved.

    Ill post a few pics of my car up for you guys now

    When i got it(rubbish pics was cold and wet)

    I actually like that colour !

    I would definately advise that you make a false floor, to sit the sub enclosure in and amp and cd changer in.
    Also ...please extend that speaker cable !!!...wont last long when your motoring

    Get that test booked !

    Have a look at one of my threads in the ICE section (will post a link when I can find it) for the false floor structure etc its easy enough just use the boot carpet as a template

    Welcome by the way, I know you've been around for a bit (longer than me actually!) but welcome nonetheless. Of course you will be welcome to the Regional meets. You'd best drum up some members from down your way as well though, as majority of the members in this part of the world are Norfolk and North Suffolk/Cambs... Can I suggest you change all your links into [IMG] code as well? I'm too lazy to click individual links
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.
