    Cool My Mk4 1.6 16v Glacier White

    Have owned my new astra for about 6 weeks now so thought i might show u the progress so far.

    Its a 1.6 16v (so not very powerfull lol) in Glacier white.

    Only paid £200, which is great even though it hasnt got any tax or MOT.

    Here are some pics of it when i picked it up:













    Not the best looking thing in the world but a decent bas to start with and make look good

    First thing i did waschange the standard grill to a debadge grill and changed the standard lights to black angel eyes:



    Next on the list was a set of alloys (no matter of size or condition lol) so i managed to pick up a set of 15" wolfrace wheels nothing special but look much better than sad old black steelies:


    Excuse the lack of bump strips took them off to paint same colour as car. Added smoke side repeaters too

    Been looking around for white bumpers on ebay and various scrappies etc, when a friend of bought another white astra irt cheap and was planning to scrap it, so he said i could have the Front bumper, Rear bumper, Spoiler (irmscher dont thnk he noticed) and the white dials from it for the total sum of £80 (a bargain i think you'll agree, got straight to fitting them from a previous AOC member who has turned to the dark side of the Vectra (Mike Mant). Here are the pics:


    New front buymper


    New spoiler and rear bumper

    May have noticed i have changed the rear lights from standard to smoked, think its a nice touch

    Will add pics of clocks when i take one

    Been looking for bigger wheels mainly to fill the arch better and because those little 15"s look gay so found theese from WillThePlank on here who's astra has recently died:



    Will get a picture of them fitted when i can do it when this damn weather stops.

    And after the new year i plan to paint them black and get vauxhall centre caps and spray them black, will hopefully look as good as it does in my head lol
