    INFO ON MY GSi???

    Hello all

    I am new on aoc and I have just got my hands on an Astra GSi redtop and with it came some aoc stickers and a keyring so I was wondering if anyone can shed some light on its history???

    Its flame red, registration -- J905 FMY and may have been in Exeter at some point in its life??

    Any help would be appreciated peeps

    Cheer in advance -- Scott

    Welcome Scott

    I think I saw this for sale recently, had it been layed up for a while?

    I had to look closer at the reg plate to see if it was my old one

    Hello Autosparks, thanks for your reply. The car has t&t and as far as I know the car was in daily use untill 3 weeks ago so not sure if its the one you are refering to? I only got the car for me MRS but insurance was way to high so not sure what to do with her(the car, not me mrs lol)now. I spent 8 hours washing, claying and polishing it yesterday lol so getting quite attached to the old girl now lol. Would be great if I can find out any history on the car!!! Can anyone help???

    Again, thanks in advance

    Scott

    Could be a very nice motor if you get all the bits sorted mate. Lose the angel eyes and the chrome, sort a new front bumper and get it professionally polished and it will be one hell of a smart GSi mate. Not keen on the wheels either personally but they're not too bad.

    Well, i got an "AOC" key ring, sticker and some other "AOC" bits with the car so they must have been a member either in my car or another one. I am sure it will get recognised though.

    As for the bumper, headlights and chrome etc I have already been on a mission trying to sort them out! So far its been de-chromed, washed, dryed, clayed and polished so looking a million times better already! I also removed about a trillion gazzilion miles of wires, 3 amps a sub and varius other unwanted crap from the car lol.

    Next I will be adding some OE lights and front bumper, either painting or selling the alloys(if sold will be replaced with some OE alloys??? or GSi slabs???)

    Thats about it for now i think. I have a reasonably small list of things to do but i am sure that will grow lol.

    My list so far --

    The headlining needs replacing so thats on the to do list,

    Drivers bolsters worn so need a new drivers seat but thats just me being fussy,

    swap/paint the alloys,

    Offside rear arch could do witrh a little touch up as its got a few tiny bubbles(again, me being fussy),

    Nearside rear arch needs a rub down and spray(not due to rot but a car park scrape),

    New boot carpet as mines been replaced with a false floor made of mdf for the crappy boot build some nutter made!!!

    OE spare wheel as mines missing.


    Thats about it at the moment to be honest. As said before, the list WILL grow lol but for now I am happy with it. I will post some new pics up later from after i polished it so you can all compare the difference.

    regards -- Scott
