    sri turbo STRIPPED OUT!!

    well today i stripped out most of the astra ready for the new look.

    some of you may think why do that to an astra? well i want to do something different and ive always wanted to do it to a car.

    looks really weird but i like it lol. i have took some pictures of it, the dash is coming out to because im having it flocked.

    here's a short list of whats being done.

    *momo bucket seats and harnesess
    *omp deep dish steering wheel
    *raceland coilovers
    *cool runnning thermostat
    *all new samco hoses
    *1.9cdti airbox
    *flocked dash
    *front door cards ally sheeted
    *alloys refured in silver
    *door handles and bump strips colour coded silver.

    am also get a front mount intercooler to replace the side mount i have at the moment.

    few other bits and pices but there the major parts.

    im gonna load up a few pics of the car as it is at the moment and put more up as i go along.

    its gonna be like christmas again when it all arrives! lol

    oh yes forgot to mention the battery is goin in the boot to lol

    ive had a few stripped cars in the past. 106 rallye and my track car 205 dimma.

    sort of cool, but freezing in the winter and take ages to get warm inside and loud, very loud.
