    Thumbs up Coming out from storage

    At last my poor Astra VXR is out of storage. I had to hoover up the large spiders from
    inside and out. I gave the interior a good clean. Jobs to do:-
    1. Now the cambelt to order and do.
    2. Service
    3. Check the tyres & spruce the alloys.
    4. MOT
    5. On the road again - its been off the road since Feb 2013
    6. A good wash & polish to put the shine back on her

    Now to put some life back in my car hopefully before end of this year

    The timebelt is on and the engine sounds great.
    Now to get auxilliary belt, front brake pads and the centre mounted roof courtesy light
    complete as mine fell out as the bracket/clip was broken.

    A big thank you to Autovaux for the assistance on buying the timebelt parts.

    the handbrake? Seems like it has seized on with it being sat for such a long time!
