Figured i should write myslef one of these seeing as everyone else seems to have one!
So prior to my Astra i was the proud owner of a 1996 Ford Fiesta;
However - after a year of ownership i sold it and got my astra;
These pictures were taken within the first few days of ownership.
I then got a friend of mines to put my vision for the Astra into photoshop;
Then i discovered Astra Sport!
So once some funds had found their way into the bank i decided to treat myself to some mods;
I added the FK Slatted Grille & Some Smoked Irmy Lights All from . It was also about this time that i de-restricted the airbox & added a pipercross panel filter.
I then got around to painting the centre console for the first time & adding some Irmy Pedals.
My car remained like this for a while until i had saved up enough to get some colour coding done & some form of bodykit added as i didnt want to do it in bits and bobs.
I had an front splitter blended into the from bumper, an SRi rear splitter added, bumpstrips & side skirts colour coded and a GSi Spoiler added to the rear.
I then worked away again for a few months until i could afford my next big purchase;
These were fitted first for a few days until they settled and a gave the car some new shoes!
Also internally i had read about an interesting new modification that had been discovered;
I had also got myself a new headunit by this point as well
Next up was some exhaust shopping;
After the exhaust, i had to do some more work and saving for a while - right up until i seen some angel eyes going cheap on here & saw the HID group buy. So i thought, heck, why not!
Also added some bonnet lifters at this point;
The car was now taking shape the way i had first planned & i was very happy with it
However there was always bound to be something to wipe the smile off my face, and in early feburary someone decided to do just that.
I was hit on the M8 motorway at about 70mph by a drunk driver who then fled the scene. The police have luckily repremanded him & i'm due to be a witness in court in September!
So after 8 weeks of extensive repairs & me slowly going mad, i got her back!
Damaged side now repaired;
So the next mods that i completed after this point were mostly internal. I was never overly happy with how the coin & cupholder looked - i didnt think it looked OE enough, so after speaking nicely to my mate he gave it a go and blended it into the dash. This was a first attempt and admittedly its still not perfect - but i'm happy with it for the time being!
My next addition came in the form of a Private plate;
My latest mod comes courtesy of Oddjob & his dash conversions. So far i've only got pictures of the MFD but i will have some more of the rest soon
