Hey, names carl im 18, thought id show off my car smile
its my first car and i love it !

Started life as a humble 1.8 astra cd shes only done 55k, and wasnt rotten ha, i was in no rush to get it on the road so striped it bare.





















arches and sills were shot as expected, but the floor and bulkhead were all solid!

sooo new sills and arches fitted





cutting a long story short......
sprayed the car.....
put it all back together with gte kit



and the nearly finished product.........

Wow, its a credit to yourself the amount of time and money you have spent to get it back towards its former glory!

I have never really taken much notice of these car's, but its only because you see so few of them about nowadays, so I dont know much about em.

It looks so smooth and unblemished now!

cost a small fortune, was tempted to go with the x30xe out of a omegea, few people have done it over on astra-mk2 and works out tonnes cheaper to get to over 200 brake

the mk1 is the car i allways wanted, like chickens lips now

welcome to the site mate.

Very nice job so far, what else you got planned for it?

Not seen one of these in a looonnng time, nevermind a modded one.

A great choice of uncommon car to mod IMO happy

tbh im not into heavily modded cars, the only aftermarket thing on the car are the wheels
so the body is staying standard

future engine swap to a 20seh out of a cav sri 130 laugh

thats how much you would like to pay.

If I wasnt ploughing all my current funds into buying a house I would have it as a second/show car.

Welcome matey.

Nice motor not a big vauxhall fan me but if i had top pick my top 3 the mk1 and mk2 astra's are both there (dont ask whats number 1 :r:)

What you have done looks nice indeed good to see you havnt gone over the top.

Would you be doing the engine swap yourself???
