    Tricky33 Coupe PROJECT

    Well as you know tricky33 astra was sadly wrote off but am on a mission to get it back to life again!










    We bought it in a auction and when my dad brought to back home, i knew the car right away.

    So as we found out what work needed doing to it i was off to get the parts sorted and get to work on it! The cam-belt had snapped on it due to impact of the car getting hit, but thank god, after stripping everything down there was nothing wrong with the head or the pistons, so built it all back up and it was still missing on piston 1 but not piston 4 :S So as i called it a day working on it my dad spoke to some people he knew and they got it pressure tested and away it went to get it fixed.

    Next day we put all the engine back together, crossed our fingers and turned the key, Fantasic, it was running nice and smooth!

    The centre console in this was the same colour as the car so i took that out today ...


    And put in a half black half silver one instead of it ...


    Think it looks alot better! The interior is spot on to be honest! So all it needs is a good cleaning out and thats one job done! As soon as we pick up a front bumper its going to the paint shop! And then the wheels are getting a refurb while its in the body shop inall!

    As soon as i get more work done on it ill post up more picture's. Sorry there isnt alot of them at the moment of the car but been that mad busy on it getting it sorted out that aint had time to think about taking picture's.

    Cheers for looking guys, ill keep you all up to date
