    Project, or sell it on?

    Hey guys. I have a little question for you. I have a vauxhall Astra G 2001 on an X reg. its done 96,500 miles. 1.6 8v Engine seems to run fine, Just had a new gearbox fiitted. My question is, do you think i should make it into a little project, or sell it on and get another astra. It needs quite a bit of work as follows...

    Lockset,
    Drivers door,
    Drivers wing,
    Front bumper,
    Front bumper cross member,
    Bootlid - Done,
    Rear bumper,
    Rear passengers light cluster (Non smoked),
    Wipers motors,
    Wheel bearings - Done.,

    And i think it needs new back axle bushs, as im getting a nasty knocking over speed humps, that seems to be coming from under the rear seats. I'll try get some pics up soon of the car all round, but whats your first thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Hmm...Think I will project it. Ive spent quite a bit on it upto date, getting various parts of the engine etc etc replaced. So its, in a sence, stupid to sell it. I can get the wheel bearings for £35 a side (Working for kwikfit is great sometimes! ), Get them done hopefully this weekend. I can get a door for £40 from a breakers yard. Track down a boot from somewhere....

    Dont sell it, esp if you can do the work yourself it will make an excellent project.

    Thought I mite aswell post here, To let you know about some updates....

    Wheel bearing is now done, Stopped the knocking (rear springs and shocks where knackered causing the exhaust to knock on the axle), also fitted new bootlid from a 2004 astra. Looks sweet!

    Just gotta realign the number plate, and job done!
