    Bit of work on paint (not photoshop :))

    Thought I'd give a bodge job at painting a few bits on the astra for an idea:



    Not the best, but you get the idea.

    Also going to have a go at adding alloys, angel eye headlights and a GSi front bumper.

    Or here's the original photo if someone fancies giving it a go for me

    Doing that to a standard car will look silly, you need to enhance the astetics before doing lary paint jobs.

    No worries, starting to fade away from that idea.

    Still looking for some vaux alloys though if anyone has any for sale?
