floors looking good mate
what size are the tyres on the astra they look huge
Think i seen this at stock. Was it tom you bought it off?
cool motor in its day
She's in the garagelmao
Here's one of my engines its a 1.8e unfortunately its been on the stand a few years now and been outside for most of them, but it is complete with wiring ecu, inlet manifold injectors etc so this will be stripped for parts and maybe a rebuild later.
And here's my crate motor I managed to find. Its been stored in a garage for 11years when I got hold of it then its spent a few months under raps in my garden. I'm hoping and praying she'l be ok! Time will tell...
She's always happy tidying up my mess...lmao

Matching top aswell ;-)
nice little workshop there, looking forward to seeing this transformation!
I cant wait to see this move forward. Have you just built that garage for the car? If so epic effort
good to see this finally starting

it's a very nice car, just a shame your not going, to be putting a LET back in it and bring it back to it's prime.
I dont want to change that so here's my chance to see what power a little 1.8e motor can produce. We've all seen what screamer is getting out of his 2ltr 8v. I know thats highly developed which its not what im after. But a fraction of his power would be a bonus.

Hi, A little measuring up, It looks like the prop may fit without any adjustment. Does anyone have a diagram as how it goes together? A detailed diagram of which parts go in which order just incase I need to buy the odd part. bolts etc..
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry photo's are rubbish I just had the camera in hand whilst the boy was playing...
Looks like an interesting project you have there. It would be great to see it rebuilt to the same standard as your other Astra.
Look forward to the updates
Sounds good. Wouldn't a let be better/more reliable in the long run?
