Hi everyone heres my new project after my old mint corsa gsi replica after rebuilding it & total repaint inside & out after it being paint stripperd when i bought it the car it was a total rekk! when it was finished it was in the back of totall vauxhall about 3 months ago now shoudnt of sold it ! i was planning to build a redtop nova next so i found a mint 3 door miami blue shell what my mate killed hes 1.0 in so i was on the look out for a redtop after looking around a mk3 astra gsi come up on migweb for (300 spares or repairs) so i rang the bloke and went to look at it an hour later at half 10 at night! lol as it had loads & loads of intrest when i got there the car was mint! The body work was the cleanest ive seen a mk3 astra before coudnt belive it it was to good break when we was talking i said ys isit spares or repairs as the car seems to have nothing rong with it then he told me the problems..............

1. drive shaft clicks dont effect the drive tho as i drove it home
2. the fan dont cut in but it dont get hot anuff to come on

ENGINE HAS GOT A GOOD SPEC ALSO SUCH AS I THINK ITS CAMED, POWERCAP, AND A FEW OTHER PARTS CAR GOES REALLY WELL!! ALOT QWICKER THEN I EXSPECTED.

MIRRORS ARE COMING OF , SUN STRIP ARE COMING OF , SPOILER NEEDS PAINTING BLUE , WHEELS ARE COMING OF NOT MY STYLE

ALSO ROCKER COVER HAS BIN AIR BRUSHED DUNNO IF I LIKE IT THO

ALL FOR 300 WHAT USE THINK...???
