    My Astra Derv

    My Astra Derv!

    Started with this:






    First thing to be done was to whip the front grill off course, and change the aerial!



    Then HID's and MTEC Xenon Sidelights put in:




    After this, new Courtenay Panel filter, de-restricted air box and Vectra Air Intake fitted.


    Next on the cards is some bonnet lifters, Full Paintwork checkover and correction and possibly some more power!!


    Vectra SRi 1.9 CDTi (150).
    Tinted Windows, Richbrook Gear Knob & Tax Disc Holder.
    Flip down sunglasses Holder.
    6000K HID's, Chilled Glovebox, CD70 Navi, Debadged, Samco Hoses.

    Problems!

    So, we decided to clean the EGR Valve and Manifold Flaps on Saturday!

    However the EGR has been replaced previously and no gasket put back in, therefore its a mixture or cold welding itself onto the manifold and we also think its ben glued on as well as there are no bolts holding it on!, as a result the manifold got ripped apart trying to remove the EGR:





    However after getting it off finally we cracked on with cleaning the Manifold flaps!

    First remove bits that cant be put in acid!


    First we found suitable container then we poured in lots of the strongest degreaser we could find and after a bit of prodding we left it to soak overnight! (no maifold meant we had plenty of time to do it!)



    After this we Pressured washered the crap of a couple of parts where we also found that the Boost catch was stuck in place, so loads of cleaning and pressure washing to try and free this up was in order!

    (awaiting pic)

    Now just waiting for the new manifold to arrive! (should have been here already!!)
