1 piece of advice m8...unbeknownst 2 most people the astra convertible was actually not built to be one! all the astra saloons were made and a number of them were taken away to have the pillars and roof cut off, away from the factorys! then the roll bar was added because the "a" pillars were not strong enuff 2 take the weight of the car. so in effect making a convertible out of a bog standard motor aint 2 difficult, only prob comes in if u have hatch and not saloon...can b done...will b expensive...prob easier to sell ur's and buy a properly done convert. not that my opinion counts...but i don't think a hatch would look 2 good as a rag top!
