    Think me trying to prove a point has one badly wrong

    Iv put about a million posts up about my astra but in short it goes like this,

    Had to down size my lifestyle alot due to becoming un empolyed. So bought a focus (never had one probelm with it) but then this astra came up for sale so i got this instead.

    With in one week off owning it it

    Did a brake hose
    Needed a caliper
    Heater matrix nackered
    Broke a few pipes.

    So i decided too put a V6 in it. Mainly as i have a load off learning difficultys and if some one tells me im to "thick" to do somthing i will do it any way. Just to prove apoint

    So started last week. Got engine in ajusted mount made i even wired it up myself. then went to pull it off ramp and no drive, Foun out its as i used the veccy flywheel set up and im meant to have used a difrent one.

    Problem i now have is my work have decided to transfer me to another branch BUT its miles away and i start monday.

    Im completly out off cash and the misses is on my back bout it. And the engine isnt even sat in the car anymore!!!
    I know the tosspot that kept taking the pi$$ will be finding it hugley hillarouse.
    Ever fealt like your hedbutting a wall?

    Vauxparts are a scrapy for vauxhalls look them up they have thousands of parts avail u will be sorry if you dont finish it mate, From the picks i saw the car is very clean and with the veccy engine in will be a monster u have done all the hard work, with any convertion u will hit teething problems u just have to keep going!
