    W18 KJC - - Astra mk4 1.6 16v Twinport

    Thought it was about time to make a step by step of what I've done up till now . I've had the car for over a year now not bad car to buy when you just turn 18 .

    This is how it looked when I first bought it:







    First thing i had did to the car was installed a sub (now for sale). Then got round to put some 6x9's in with amp. and changed the spearkers in rear quarter panels (still need to change door speakers ). All Vibe by the way











    Next thing i did was installed a K@N which i'm loving lol





    Then got a new front grill on.



    Then a couple of weeks ago got the door mouldings colour coded





    And today finally got electric wing mirrors put on and new tweeters on





    Thats me started now will keep you updated. Can p/m me if you have anything to ask or say

    Not updated this in ages the custom centre console is on hold as i've now changed the head unit for the 3rd time and hopefully the last lol. Not got any wheel spacers for the car yet but the alloys have now been refurbed gloss black still got the centre caps to spray for them yet but looking good





    Just recently got a stainless steel cat back exhaust system put on not got any pics as of yet but will do soon . Will get a pic when i put my reverse camara on and paint the under side of car .

    Also the boot install is starting to come on well got floor made amp brackets and power cap brackets made just need to finish of the sub boxes and wire it all in






    Also heres a few pics of my new head unit





    Also the head unit came with a control box so ended up putting that in the glove box still got a few cables to conect to it then i'll be closing it in so you won't be able to see it




    Anyways thats all for now will try keep this more up to date .

    Hope you like the progress so far
