    My 1.6 Astra

    My first car, it is a Vauxhall Astra Envoy its a 1.6 litre 8v. Its my baby and I intend to get her looking lovely and this is a diary for le and others to view as time goes on




    the current centre console, was cracked and battered so I decided to by a new one. £5 from scrap yard, including the computer dail clock too and also thought Id add some paint to it.

    Forgot to add that I have changed my grill also, But that was done at PV09. here is a picture of it now.



    My Car as it stands now, although the other side had got a colour coded bumper strip, couldnt complete both sides as weather turn bad.

    Change my interior light, to a blue LED as you can see.




    Two pictures of the car with colour coded bumper strips







    Strip after finished spraying



    Some unwanted damage, picked this one up about 2 months ago, been ashamed to look at it I had it. Feel like it spoils my car basically I left my car parked on a round just outside local cinema come back to find something or someone has hit it with something and this is its outcome

    just adding a little note, I have just had brand new brake pads and discs fitted on the front of my motor, as well as two new tyres front and back.

    Bit bummed out as the total of it all with labour was £140
