I am to any members who can help with the rear hatch decals / writing / text on my EXP I'm restoring.
Unfortunately Iíve been let down big time by the guy Iíd given my Astra EXP to be restored / resprayed.
It was all going fine until he fell out with the owner of the garage he was sharing.
The Astra is almost done but the gold band wasnít the right shade and needed to be re-done. We had trouble trying to find the right code and because it had been sprayed sometime in itís past itís difficult to know the exact shade of gold it should be. Any ideas on the correct paint code for the gold?
To cut a long story short, the car has been stuck in the garage since November last year with nothing happening. Iíve paid the money in full (big mistake) so it looks like I need to pay someone else to finish off the car.
Because the rear hatch has been rubbed down and primed I donít have the measurements of the text on the hatch now
I would be grateful to anyone who has an EXP if they could do the following for me:
1) Could you take a photo of the gold ĎASTRA 1.3Sí text and put a tape measure from the left side of the hatch so I can read off the distance to the start of the writing and the end of the writing. Could you do the same with tape and measure and photograph the height of the writing.
2) Could you do the same with the gold ĎVAUXHALLí text and put a tape measure from the right side of the hatch so I can read off the distance to the start of the writing and the end of the writing.
3) Could you also take a photo of the black ĎEXPí text and put a tape measure from the right side of the hatch so I can read off the distance to the start of the writing and the end of the writing.
4) Is the antique gold used on the Astra EXP the same as that used on the standard Astraís and Cavalierís of the period?
Thankfully, because I replaced both front wings I still have them for reference for the side stripes.
