    Is that still using the Astra engine and floor pan ? 4k is a bit ott ,

    I know people who have used the floor pans complete with all the running gear engine box etc ,All welded into a different body one was a Skyline into a Sierra , if you've got the ball's anything is possible a Quarto Astra would be impressive , Got to better than an Astra pickup project in my eye's anyway , A cheap tired Astra and maybe a rolled Quarto

    would be over 4k if you dont know how to do it yourself

    there have been calibra/cav 4x4 floorplans fitted into mk3 astras so id imagine its possible just need to find the corect size donor car but would need custome made drive shafts etc

    Perhaps some Cav 4x4 running gear strapped to a Z20LET would work? shoehorn the motor in.

    Probably need some work making a gearbox tunnel, Petes coupe would be some good inspiration

    i was looking at doing a 4wd astra briefly untilll i decided mid engine rwd would be more fun .

    anything will fit if you know what your doing , my mate is also just getting started on putting evo engine and drive into a crx in the same workshop so we have bits all over the place now .......... happy days !


    i would agreee with danny though on the 10k to make 4wd as thats about what id want for doing it
