Does anyone know if i reshell this using a normal Astra shell if i can rename it as a GSi on the logbook?

Its just that i`ve been offered a 2 door astra, same colour but 1.4 engine, the bodywork is in mint condition but knackered clutch so i was thinking of doing a reshell for this but wont bother if i cannot change it to a GSi.

confused

The floor pan is the same. you would need a certificate for the chasi number change (right hand side of seat.)and possible second one on grill lower cross member. t/gate struts differ reds heavy duty on acount of added crap shocks on red differ and the speedo so would have to keep as original,
as possible

Nice one Ste, I haven't used mine for over a year now, but will put it back on the road next month. Honestly, these are great cars and will never let you down.
The arches go (as it looks) on sunroof models, but that's about it. First thing is get new dampers, knackered ones make driving scary. New bushes make a massive difference, even if they're just standard ones.

Did you get it cheap? Are you going to part with the alloys? I'm a bit jealous. laugh They have the same stud pattern as MR2s, but the bore is different.

Oh, you can't reshell a car and keep it's identity. My mate did it though, but swapped the reg plates/vin plate and stamped ID next to the driver's seat/bulkhead. wink

Violet just got my head around what you said about your mate"s reshell if it was a new shell he would not have to xxx out the old number which is were I was coming from. Ste I will get back to you when I tidy up My garage loads of bits you will require.

SVA re-test would bring it up, you'd have to be careful.

Cheers for that guys happy I think it would be best to keep the original shell going by whats been said smile

Violet, i think it has new suspension spings and dampers all round, not sure what type but i know they are from demon tweaks, theres tons of reciepts with the car from vauxhalls etc, its just had the head rebuilt too.
The other side of the car and the hood are in primer due to the paintwork being vandalised so i think its going to need a full respray.
The interiour is like brand new, even has original stereo/cassette and the on board computers there and working.

I paid 400 for it with no tax or mot but i reckon it`s well worth it (been after one for a while as you know grin )
My cousins guttered to see it go but he hasn`t the time to do it up atm and a saxo VTR turned up which he had to have, thats how i ended up with it smile He wouldn`t let it go previously, i promised him i`d make a good job of it and he can have a go when it`s done smile

Over the alloys mate make me an offer as i`ll be putting different ones on it, if you have any deep dish rims knocking about we can do a deal?
There are 5 alloys all fitted with brand new tyres.

Cheers mate, let me know what you have and how much , i could do with stocking up on spares anyway happy

Thats a nice one your mates got there, thats an awesome rebuild omg
