    39 Days to the show season - what's on your To Do list?

    OK so today being 30th Jan, there's less than 6 weeks to The Fast Show, and the start of the show-season "proper"... or 39 days to be more exact...

    so what's left on your "to-do" list before the big kick off? or have you set yourself another deadline such as PV or A.N.Other Show?

    At last look my to-do list was:

    New wheels
    New discs/pads
    New front seats/interior
    Exterior colourcoding
    "Interim" ICE install

    and general maintenance...

    however I will be aiming for PV rather than the Fast Show, or if things go well over the next fortnight on the work front I may well bring that forward to May some time

    so who's got what left on the list, and are you panicking (sp?) yet?!
    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.

    39 days until the show season

    31 days until the VXR
    Gaz

    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
