    So, Got it home, Decided to give it a damn good wash + Polish, get the flame red back into the car, not the faded 'pinky' that was coming through.

    While I was at it, I decided to paint the brakes red...

    Found a nice Gsi Replica spoiler for the Astra, in base coat, only just purchased. Couldn't wait to get it on!

    Christmas came (09) and had a bit of christmas funds given to me via the family, so after days and decisions later, I decided to get Momo TEN-S alloys in 17".







    Bit of pun to my dad, but hey, I was excited to show off my new shoes :P

    Also got the mirror back sprayed the right colour instead of matt black!




    Then.. Decided to go to the Santa Pod fast show, I had some new rims, and felt good about myself. Only to get ripped to shreads by my mates Celica!



    I was very happy - As you can tell!

    Tint them windows!
    Whip that pea shooter of an exhaust off and stick a scorpion straight through stainless on there.

    While I'm at it, May aswell lower it 40mm on Jamex springs...

    While browsing at angel eyes (Cause I think they look the balls) I found some unique red ones... Purchased them, then fitted... and I bloody loved them!

    Thought I'd treat myself to some Vauxhall plates as well.. Just to make it look half decent from the front







    Then added some tinted side repeaters, seeing as I was after new lights...

    Thought after doing a bit to the exterior, I'd look at the thing that actually get's me from A to B.

    So I decided to give the engine a good clean, Took me 3/4's of a day to make it this shiny. Also purchased and fitted a K&N 57i Air filter for her.

    Gas Bonnet lifters also purchased just because the black arm thing doesn't look cool at meets

    I didn't know what else to do the exterior incase it went silly money and OTT.

    So I decided to leave it as it is for the moment.

    But, Mods don't stop. So I decided to have a go at the interior.

    First up, That old horrible matt black console. Silver looks far better.

    Carbon Fibre clock with blue LED's.

    White heater dials with blue LED's behind.

    Chrome heater rings.

    And to make it secure; thatcham cat 1 alarm with tracker professionally fitted.

    Changed the head unit to down near the gearstick, I'm lazy when it comes to changing track!

    Also purchased some gauges to give a "fast car" effect. Fitted with a piece of MDF I found at work, sprayed silver. Looking to get a propper one, But can't find any!
