    Cheers, im glad its coming on now aswell! Aye there's a fair few trick motors up here!

    Yesterday I had to order a new sill section as the arch panel on the drivers side was too short! Bit of a pain in the ass as it will set back the painting some more

    I've also just ordered top mounts, gas shocks, a front pipe gasket and some GM Motorsport mudflaps.

    Re: Astra mk2 SXi project

    Boring wee update. Cars in the same state as the last update due to needing a sill section. A sill section that I ordered on the 5th of march and only came yesterday. Car won't be making an appearance at crail now .

    However this pile of bits came.


    2x fk shocks
    2x strut top mount/bearings
    2x GM down pipe gaskets (bought a spare)
    4x GM Motorsport flaps
    Polished oil cap
    Stainless rocker cover bolt kit

    Also been carless since January so bought maself a cavalier runabout last Thursday.


    Got a proper grill of Tom yesterday and painted it. Also borrowing some turbines of a pal. Fixed a fuel leak and replaced a split induction pipe and it runs spot on now

    ill be going to crail with this.

    Re: Astra mk2 SXi project

    Here's the update I've been waiting for. Cars been sprayed now. Very pleased with the paintwork and its not even been sanded back or cut yet!

    I should be getting it back down to my own house this week so I can start putting it back together.

    Bought some Nexia 1/4 vents and I ordered some brand new gm doorstrips from Germany this morning too!

    Ill let the photos do the talking.
















    That's all for now. Ill get some more pics of it through the week once I get it home.

    Re: Astra mk2 SXi project

    Ive had the car back for a while now and have slowly pottered about with it, mainly just putting everything back together, painting bits and pieces and doing some tweeks. I stripped the front legs down and wire brushed the shite of them, gave them each 4 coats of hammerite yellow then Built them up with new fk shocks, 60mm springs top mounts and spring plates. Also wire wheeled the four wheel wells and gave them a couple of coats of hammerite smooth white for a nice look + it should help keep dreaded rust away. Last but not least hammerited the drums and gave these nigh on new GMAX shocks a once over in silver and threw the back end together with -60mm nova springs as you do

    As she came back about a month ago:


    With the rest of my fleet during cleaning out all the dust from inside!


    My birthday prezzie I got for my 21st! Sealey roller chest, I'd been needing one for ages as I'd outgrown all my wee toolboxes! Will be a familiar sight in the background of most of my pics now no doubt haha!


    Typical vauxhall sight for me!


    Front leg/wheel well shot looking clean


    Rear wheel arches




    Dropped down and outside again!




    Very chuffed with it so far and how she's sitting. Purchased this from Dazz last week as well! Another piece of the puzzle, a prefacelift SRi airdam! I'm also debating getting nexia wing mirrors and morettes.


    Also dragged my sportex down from the loft to be fitted this week I hope!


    That's all for now. Updates will hopefully be more frequent now!
