    Cleaned my coupe & updated pics (56k warning)

    With only 2 months to go until PVS i though i best make a start on getting my car ready.

    Its not been washed properly since before christmas and has several months of dirt built on it etc.

    The interior was in state due to working in a bodyshop so everything was covered in filler dust and it stunk of paint lol.

    Washed her twice today and gave her a quick wax.

    Going to strip all off the old polish & wax off soon and then start the megs 3 stage kit on it again.

    Also made a list of thins to do intime for PVS.










    Want to try and get the windows tinted before PVS aswell.

    Also need to remove them logos from the window and repaint the engine cover.

    I think im just about happy now with the way she looks and its not over the top etc

    Looks great Gareth, the penta's really suit it too

    You've kept it subtle with some good choice mods. How the coupe should have been as standard IMO

    P.s look forward to catching up at PVS mate

    Cheers

    When i first bought my coupe i found a pic of one in the same colour on the now off line astra cabriolet owners club,it just had the GSI bumper and turbo wheels and a kamie grille.

    From the moment i found that pic i was determined to have mine similar.

    its took 2 years and the Pentas were an hadded bonus as i got them cheap from an insurance write off.

    Plus ive only ever had one bodykit on my old corsa c that you will proberbly remember and was never keen on it so i got rid and went smoothed factory look.

    Defo have to catch up at PV
