    Thumbs Up

    Looks Good Mate, wasnt sure on the Rims at first but they go quiet well with the bonnet, GSI bumper and spoiler!

    I like the way you've done the bonnet but i would have possibly tried to keep the colour in the natural contours of the bonnet if you know wot i mean!

    Also how have you done the Bonnet Like that??

    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

    cheers, the colours are in the natural contours, they follow the '1st' line on there. the bonnet, well its trade secret, lol. The back hinges where moddified with another set of hinges, so that when the bonnet is up, it can pivot forward, not got round to making a stand for it yet, hence the bright yellow sticks holding it up. lol

    if you're gonna stick with the GSi bumper, i'd either change the bonnet grille to a honeycomb one, or change the bumper grille to black slats so they match. It looks pap if you mix the two.

    And personally i think the wheels look far too small, esp with the suspension you have

    i like the two-tone bonnet & the GSi bumper

    not 100pc on the wheels though, a nice set of snowflakes or VXR rims would look good IMO

    18" VXRs or Snowflakes would suffice I reckon. Its just the thinness of the spokes on those that make them look small

    And the way they 'dish' inwards. mine look like 16's in pics because they dish, but in the flesh they look like the 17's they are

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Hi Dave, Nice looking motor there! Looked even better in the flesh this afternoon though

    The Bonnet looks good and we like the rear spoiler alot! Guessed you and Critch might be on your way to the horseshoe pass meet, we nearly joined you but we had an important vauxhall sports car club meet to attend and we were running late.

    Liked the paint job critch, see you both around
