    Astra mk4

    Hi everyone,
    I have'nt been on for a while as i sold my Astra mk4.

    I have now recently bought another Astra mk4, got a few things in process of doing to it now, just getting the kit sorted out and all together. I am in two minds in what colour change to do, it's currently silver atm, i have got 17" team dynamics which im spraying white when i am down the garage next week, and im either doing the colour Arden Blue, will be white wheels with arden blue (my mates Corsa C has it done, looks smart), or i found this White colour, which is a pure white no tinters in the paint was thinking of White with white wheels.

    What would your ideas be?

    Many Thanks
    Henry

    If your going to spray it a different colour do a non vauxhall colour or a colour that was never on a MK4 Astra before.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    Yeh i thought about it, i do bodywork for a living, and have come across some crazy colours but was thinking of Pearl White but i like the idea of having a more BRIGHT white, or a suttle blue (Arden Blue). Something that will go with White as all the Dashboard centre consoles im Spraying Pearl white. Plus a Vauxhall Colour is probs what i would like to do ideally to keep it a kinda standard colour but look really smart.

    Im not going for nothing major, just a smart effect, flushing the Aeriel and wiper motor along with Vauxhall badge. Gsi bumper, but havent choose side skirts yet or rear bumper.

    I got all sorts of stuf in the unit, like flake and candy etc... but i want something smart. Just woundered what thoughts other people had in mind from Astra owners.

    What to do a Euro look?

    Yellow i thought about, that Renault colour is nice but i dont really warm up to it, plus with white wheels? i dont know if it would look good.

    Has anyone got a White Astra 3 door on here? Mk4?

    I'm sure i've seen a yellow MK4 before, but only once. Looked strange, plus i'm not a fan of yellow cars anyway, but it certainly stood out.

    There's a yellow Vectra too around here which looks a bit shocking.

    Agreed though, Silver is quite boring. No offence to those who like it of course.
