    And Piano black dash trim to replace the chrome items

    Next mod on my list is to retrofit a Navi 950 Onstar into my Astra. Which gives you 4G WiFi, etc

    First job was to get my local bodyshop to colour match the new larger aerial, once painted it took four hours to swap over due to having to drop the headlining to access the bolt and run the cables.



    I also replaced the headlining wiring loom for the Onstar loom version.



    New buttons for the Onstar

    Another retrofit completed today, the OEM rear parking sensors. Quite easy with genuine parts - just the new loom, control box and sensors. Hardest part was making the 19mm holes.



    Just need to remove the dashboard and replace the complete dash wiring loom, then I can fit the Navi 950.

    This is the written off 2016 vxr which has supplied me with all the parts. It does not look this complete any more

    Todays job was to replace the dash wiring loom for the Navi 950 intellilink dash loom

    First job was to remove the dashboard



    then swap the looms, I did this one section at a time



    Then I started to refit the dash



    Finally completed, just need the VCI sorting and obviously need to clean the dash

    Nice work mate. I wouldn't have a clue where to start to do any of the mods you've done, or the patience haha.

    thanks

    I find this sort of stuff quite easy to do, just very time consuming due to trying not to damage anything. It is not two years old yet

    My passion is tweaking engines and perhaps one day it might get something a little bit special under the bonnet
