    astra van project turbo!

    hello all iv been on the forum a few times but never really got involved,i have just got myself a act and have also owned for a while a astra mk4 van with a dead lump,as i own a body shop and need a van iv decided to build a z20let van with all the trimmings ie:air con sat nav etc etc

    cosmeticly i have already got a full irmisher kit for the van but thats as far as iv got,im a big fan of listening to peoples ideas so was thinking id see what ideas you lot could throw in to the mix,so colour for the van wheels etc anything really,as i said i own a body shop so all the work will be carried out in house!!

    cheers

    A red van would look uber cool but an all black one with black wheels would be sex wee time IMO, or gunmetal grey!! Sorry im thinking out lous again lol

    the 5 stud hubs will fit the van rear beam.
    or is the coupe rear beam better than the van beam?
