    Newbie!

    Hi im matt from Lancs , england, just thought id join as im on the look for an astra van mk4 for a future project , im new to vauxhall as i used to be in something citroen but i give up as i find them too tinny and fragile, so i thought of a vauxhall astra van project maybe, as ive only just joined up here seems like a helpful site.

    Hi, Welcome to the club

    There are several good astra van projects on here. Have a look through the Auotbio forum section, you should be able to find some and get an idea what can be done.

    welcome to AOC and enjoy the club! I also used to have to put up with a horrible little tinny citroen C15 van (made out of tinfoil with brakes made of cheese lol)

    There are plenty of astra van owners on the site and there are some amazingly and subtly modified tidy examples around, nicely modded mk4 vans always stand out to me and look really nice if well done - purposeful and not overstated, workmanlike but with that nice touch of extra detail that makes all the difference. I feel if done right it also helps with customer's perceptions of you and your business. If overdone it can give off a chavvy/untrustable vibe, but if done subtly then a neat and tidy slightly modded van just looks neat and professional, and indicates (I'd hope) that if the owner pays that much attention to detail with his van, he'll pay as much attention to detail to the job he's doing too .

    There are plenty of FAQ's, how-to posts and common mod advice, especially for mk4's on here, just pop some keywords into the search box and have fun! Don't forget to sign onto your regional group forum board too for local advice and meets etc. There might be some vans for sale in the classified section too, not to mention the "buying guides" for each mark astra which can help you when you're looking for your next van.

    Take care, Kirsty
