    New to AOC

    Just thought i would introduce myself

    Since i passed my test i had a 1.1i sx saxo which as you can imagine i got sick of after about 3 months, so i just bought myself an Astra, although it is only a 1.6 8v

    Been looking at the 'How to's' and i think the first job is to colour code the bumper strips and skirts. The guy who had it before me tried to give it a polish and covered the bumpers and sills in the stuff so i'd like to get rid of the white stains.

    Heres a pic



    Thats about it i think

    Firstly Welcome to the club. Its a nice lookin car you have there. Just looking at the pictures though, it looks more like the skirts and bump strips have faded grey, though you can use something like Back to Black spray to bring back the colour. The white stains over some parts you may have to live, as more often than not when you polish a car (with AutoGlym Super Resin Polish) it gets on the black bits easily, but does come off eventually
    Probably the ONLY Astra Mk3 sitting on Corsa D SXI rims!
    And Now a Diesel on Discs all round!
