  • [Other Vauxhall] Vauxhall Astra convertible 1.8

    As per instruction I'm making a project thread for my new car

    Here it is vvv

    I have plans, I know some of you will think nothing will happen because of my corsa (lol) but I'm hoping for the best .. Need to look after this car

    Anyway here is a non exhaustive list I will think if more/people will suggest
    • 18 inch wheels or zafira/astra gsi 17" wheels either in matching grey or purple (probably grey)
    • Lower . As much as still comfortable
    • Swap out rear speakers as they suck .. Possibly fronts too but I suspect previous owner may have done this as they sound good
    • Coupe spoiler
    • Posable full retrimm in grey /black leather including door cards - this is more of a wish than a plan
    • Irmscher rear bumper spats
    • Subwoofer inside armrest covered with a grill and then with perforated leather (would need to be small) - this is just a possibility obviously ambitious but you never know
    • Irmscher front skirt/gsi bumber
    • Irmscher/ other back box (posable full exhaust) want it to sound better
    • Spray orange In rear light clusters red to match rest if lights
    • Smoked side reps ( as close to car colour as I can)
    • Window tints possibly
    • Posable rear headrests (very expensive)

    Probably some of this stuff is wrong I have only been looking for a few days

    Any opinions on all that are welcome suggestions / constructive criticism too

    Looks nice. Any more pics?
    With the rear lights, can you not get a version that has no orange in it?

      Tyres probably fine if it's not losing air.

        Roof is blue.. Would much rather it be black .. Seen dying stuff like back to black but for fabric roofs .. So that's also on the cards

              Yeah I feel like that sometimes too

                I'm going to look after it .. I have to.. Best car I have had by far

                  It's a nice car.
                  Be able to make use of having the roof down with some of the good weather we've got left as well.

                  You could get a red Fly Eyes kit to make the rear lights look all red. Much cheapness as well.

                    I like the colour, I wouldn't mess with dying the roof - I think they have a waterproof coating that you'd probably ruin.


                    • #11
                      Didn't even think of fly eyes .. How far away will the orange be noticeable or will it change the red currently on there

                      Also jt the roof stuff is also a waterproofer .. Will be cleaning the roof anyway it's filthy

                        It will make the red look more matt compared to the shiny finish on it just now.
                        You can see it close up but from a distance the orange should be red and not notice it. Costs less than a tenner and easy to remove if you don't like it.
