    Pics of a few little mods done

    I Sorted out a few things on the astra this week. With help and advice from a few members on here, i managed to............

    Colour coded my bumpstrips




    Fitted a new EGR valve,i know its only a 5 minute job but makes a hell of a difference!
    the other one was well ****ed,rusted all over


    And finally got round to fitting an alpine head unit from my previous car even though the standard one did everything i needed it to with good sound output!


    should keep me smiling for a while

    Looking good mate. I will be starting this as soon as my parts arrive so nice to see someone else's results. Are you going to be doing your handles as well?

    Im not sure about sanding the skirts down smooth would take ages! and it seems that taking the side skirts off involves breaking the fittings and clips
    And as for handles yeh when i get more paint and primer

    Im planning on buyin some cheap vaux alloys and refurbing them in anthacite think this may look better with the skirts the colour they are,
