Nice to see a regular back :). Looks like a nice car always wanted a coupe myself
Got an email saying my Gold was away to run out so thought I'd have a look around :D
It's Lovely! Needs a wash though =\ Wanted a change from a hatchback and something i could keep for a few years

Fitted the headunit, It's pretty :3
But! Forgot to switch over the ignition and live :palm: so it keeps resetting when the key comes out =\

Going to order paint for the Pillars, fabric paint for the roof lining and hammerite smooth black so i've got it ready for if/ when it gets warmer ..

just a couple pics cos of been ill so minimal progress :(
Apologies on the blurryness.. it was cold and I was poorly sickly..

CLEAN engine bay :D I've fitted the bonnet lifters since then but everyone knows what they look like ..



Nice new sony headunit :D


LED number plate, What a faf this thing was, Went to disconnect the connectors to swap them round and one of them snapped, the spade part had calcified and got itself stuck ¬_¬
10 minutes of pliers, flatheads and teeth got it out but had to bodge it with copious amounts of leccy tape 'cos I couldn't find my soldering iron :shock:



Also the whoel reason behind this project was to modernise the car and make it look reasonably newer since the new astra's jsut make it look completely dated, 9 years I know is old but still ..
SO other than sharkeyes, HIDs, LEDs etc i've been trying to think fo what else I could do to make it look more modern
So design cues are coming from executive german coupes / saloons like the 3 series bmw
SO eventually black vinyl roof and black shark fin as i've said, and M3 mirrors which is jsut a recent decision .. bit marmite but i think it will look ok..
Other than that i've been doubting other things, I want the car to retain a factory look to it so having second thoughts on the carbon bootstrip and on the anthracite alloys..
Here's a Very Quick photoshop in the wrong light of the wheels and roof changed, I'm still uncertain though..

Stay silver but get them powdercoated / freshened up?


Go anthracite


Thoughts please?
Also whats the MOT/ Law like for LED fogs?
