    Robbo Astra G 1.6 8v

    Bin meaning to make a progress thread for awhile so thought i might aswell start now

    anyway.. heres my old car was only a 1.0 lol ive also had a Fiat Bravo 1.6 16v aswell which was a great engine n alot faster than the astra but it didnt like to brake and ive always liked and wanted a astra so it had to go lol


    and heres my current car... had just come back from being machine polished as it was pink when i got it.


    first job was fitting my cd player & subwoofer

    o by the way if anybody wishs to have my rear lights feel free to pm me.. as i hate them lol.


    then had to time so sprayed some bits...






    rear door cards retrimmed.. took forever to get the first window winder off lol


    then a red led dash kit


    need new clocks with rev counter aswell asap doesnt feel right without one.


    And as it stands at the mo... just ordered a sportex twin 3" back box 2day tho

    Had some time off work so got some of the inside done.

    wasnt happy with the material i had already used for the rear doors so changed it, having trouble doing the fronts around the grab handle so any pm's with tips will be great


    also the spray glue came threw the material on the first one i done so thats going to have to be redone :\


    also had a go at the roof and it came out great... just have to wait and see wether it will stay stuck lol
