    Comestic changes!

    Here's my astra mk4 estate as it stands;



    And the new grille went on this afternoon;



    I'm planning to refurb my own wheels soon, ignoring the still cracked rear bumper, i want to make some colour changes.
    I've tried to run with the red/black/white look, but its getting boring. Im really stuck on what colours to redo my white alloys, which i will match with door strips, wing mirrors, eyebrows etc. After my next payday, angel eyes will be on too.

    So question for AOC is, what colour to replace the White already on the car?! Or do i keep the white?!

    Do you not mean 'cosmetic' changes?

    I'd do the wheels in silver and colour code the strips, handles and mirrors in red!

    Looks spot on besides that!

    Theres like, another 4 or 5 estates or vans the same colour who has done colour coding!
    I like the idea of anthracite, Is the colour available in spray cans?

    I thought about chrome plating the wheels, and colour coding everything with added chrome parts?

    I would like some 16s, i think 17s would rub far too much. But i'd best do this when i switch to flux insurance, My current policy only allows anything under 15inch!

    sweet thanks, guess a trip to frauds needs to be planned.

    What about carbon wrapping? If it can be done on the strips, mirrors and roof? then anthracite wheels, and colour code door handles?

    And has anyone smoothed their doors so there aren't any door strips? Or does anyone know of anyone with pictures? just another thought.
