    hi guys and gals my name is Darren and am from nottinghamshire, just bought a 98 1.6 16v 5dr hatch in star silver and thought i would join the owners club.

    im not a newbie to forums just to this one.

    used to have a punto gt as a project, and was a member of puntosportsclub for a few years.
    spent some time re-building the gt engine, and various other mods.

    am now a family man so was time to get a bigger car.

    plans are; subtle mods
    ie: colour coding
    nice set of standard alloy wheels
    and basically just making it my own

    been having a browse around the forum and it seems like there is plenty of good advice and guides.

    cheers
    Darren

    hi m8. will post some pics up soon,

    as for debadging the boot im not too sure what to do yet, got loads of ideas in my head but not sure what route to take yet.

    first on my list is colour code the bumpers as they are the half n half painted ones. and c/c the boot handle/skirts.

    then a nice set of standard vauxhall alloys.

    i already have the irmscher grill on order aswell as irmscher door badges.


    think im going to have a browse round see if i can get some styling ideas.

    thanks for the welcome guys.
    Darren

    Hi welcome to AOC. I'd say have a re-think about colour coding the bumpers.

    This is another members are on here who came runner up in the top 15 cars a Trax last sunday.
