    u can attend whenever u want and in whatever u want

    whether it be a totally standard astra or a modified like hell astra.

    we even have ppl who attend in other non-vauxhalls lol

    mechanic and sprayer u say? well in that case u may come in useful haha

    anyway as i say, any questions just drop me a PM or ask in the regional forum

    Welcome along.

    Good luck spraying it ST orange! i know very experienced sprayers who refuse to spray it as its so hard to get right.
