Well been meaning to do this for agessssssssssssss and tonight ive finally been able to get into all of the pictures and sort through them all.

Its a W reg 1.2 16v, got it with 3 astra mk2 fan style alloys and one astra standard alloy on, with a 3" outward rolled peco backbox

Had the car since start of febuary, never really got any pictures of it then,

Just before pv i fitted the crystal style rear lights and 40mm front and rear springs

First proper picture was at Pv With Froffas old corsa



Got back from pv with a H.I.D kit, which was fitted the moment the rain stopped

A couple of days later, got some pictures of it with the girlfriends Clio







Then froffa stripped his corsa, i bought the sportex stainless centre off him and fitted it straight away, got some black mirrored side repeaters

A couple of months before much happened, then someone reversed into me



Got the headlight (off Adam D) and new bonnnet (off andy sxi) <--- Cheers guys

Got the money off the lad who did it and sent the bonnet off for spraying

Fitted the black bonnet and got the spoiler in the garage waiting to be fitted

Now









What you guys think?

15" Team dynamic pro race 1.2, 195/50/r15, they do look big, and i know it needs to go lower, but with them being et38 cant go any lower on the back without having to do something about the rear arches, looking at a set of cav fan blades so they'll fit nicely

Well Friday night went out an bought a new set of wheels of Brod99 (cheers mate!), spent yesterday morning fitting them

Not got a full pic of the car yet with them on but got individual pictures though

*Car looks high because i hadn't released the handbrake*









Next plans are to get it lower, thinking of coilovers but not sure which ones? :S Whiteline arb and some better brakes
