    Hello All

    Hello All,
    Just joined, which is probably abit obvious. And I Thought I would introduce myself. So here goes
    My name is Gareth, and I've just been given a 1.7 GLS DTS Astra F, after I managed to write off my Peugeot 106, though thats another story. The car is completely standard, the only mod thats been done was to de-restrict the air box, which an0ther member who lives nearby advised me to do.





    Not the greatest looking car with its multi colours, but it runs so I'm happy, Though when i got it, the car was minging both inside and out, and spent the best part of a day cleaning it. Also fitted my Alpine ipod head unit as well, which makes the stock speakers sound great

    future plans at the moment are to fix it up abit, there are plenty of things wrong with it at the moment, so that will give me something to do :-

    replace wing mirrors with the correct ones, colour code if poss.
    sort front brakes out - more urgently as they are warped
    fix drivers side leccie window - come off rails
    sort wing/bumper out
    sort rust patch rear wheel arch
    fix foobared shocks on front and back (priced up some lowering springs and shocks)
    sort interior bulbs and heater controls that dont work

    the list goes on.....

    Thanks for the Welcome guys, yeah ive got a fair bit of work on my hands, same as my last 2 cars really, This one was gonna be scrapped, and ime not sure if whats happening to it, since the car was bought for my mum to ride around in, I got it after totaling my pug 106. and i love it, it may be a heap at the moment, but not when ive finished. Though my step dad is so indecisive ime not sure if he wants it back or not, i have offered to buy it outright off him though, so it will be mine. But what ever happens ime gonna damn sure gonna try and keep it!
