    Looking forward to seeing how this comes along, as I also have recently bought a V reg 1.0 exactly like this, with 47K on the clock, except mine's silver

    So far I've done a full de badge, new tyres all round (ready for winter), clear side indicator lenses, new floor mats, new CD player and a full engine clean.
    I've got a de badged grille, wind deflectors, new plates and plate surrounds in the post too.

    Interested to see which way this goes compared to mine

    Do you think?
    Mine's my first car so I don't know any different, but I think it feels like a right little go kart at times
    My main problem with the standard wheels is the way they look!

    Wow! Big plans!
    I hadn't really thought about it, but yeah I'm definitely up for going.
    Hopefully have it looking a lot different by then too.

    Liking your updates, are you taking the Vauxhall badge off the left hand side of the boot or are you keeping it on?
    Scuttle looks loads better too, I may have to look at sourcing one myself

    All Opel, or all Vaux. A mix of both makes car look a bit confused
