Final piece of the jigsaw

Been collecting body parts for the Astra for the last two years and finally the last piece of the jigsaw has been found…a GSi Turbo front bumper, complete with grilles and fogs.

They are getting quite scarce now and command some fairly serious money as a result so this was a good find. The rest of the collection comprises of side skirts, rear bumper and rear boot spoiler, along with the already fitted steering wheel. Next task now is to find a Paint Shop who will colour match these to my car (or blow everything over…)

For Kevin

Kevis is a work colleague, not based at our site but he drops in every once in a while. Months and months and months ago he started asking me about the GSi Turbo steering wheel I had behind my desk.
I said “Oh, that’s going in the Astra soon”

Weeks would pass, Kevin would drop in again and joke about the steering wheel still being there. Then months passed and although he called in he stopped asking about the GSi wheel.

I’ve been called a Sloth with bike builds, in fact someone once said glaciers move faster than me and now I come to think of it even my niece calls me Gary The Snail.

So this is for you Kevin…..IT’S DONE 🙂

Old one off…

‘New’ one on
