well my baby is finaly ready for mot

will get stu to do the pics for me later on

i bought the 1.2 orange 2 door will little boot off ebay abough 6 mths back she was in top nic with only a few minor blenishes , also being a 1 owner

most of you probable saw it , i though it was the best way to go as i m no sprayer and the colour was a fav of mine being mandarine orange i belive.

basicly she was bought back and stripped of as much from the interior as i could and sh howses a 6 point fia cade bough from the site and 2 bucket seats. the only other changes inside is an lcd dash a gear knob.

at first i bolted a turbo in but due to unforseen sh$t the missis got up the stick for the 4 th time so evo went zafira gsi purchaced for the family and i ve opted for a red top so i can use daily to get to work.

but not that easily the first one was cranked over by one of the kids with no belt on causing lots of damage so out that cam and the new 76k with full history went in mated to a 46k mk1 gte gearbox from a silver on i put a turbo in a long time back.

underneath was undersealed to within a inch of its life and i set to work fitting astra gsi rear beam with cav v6 rear hubs and frount gte struts new bearings ans 5 stud v6 drilled and groved items too. all finished off powder coated black and frount and rear anti roll bars fitted in red.

new gte tank sourced and astra gsi blue fuel lines fitted to fuel the beast.
new brake lines and goodrich hoses fitted too along with new gte 16 valve handbrake cable.

im running on a set of 16" oz super t s and have fitted a system bought from grayem sound very well and goes well

mot thursday should sail through, will add picks shortly
