            Have a proper soft spot for old GTE's, looks a cracker that 1, still unsure about this IC sticking out the front

            Really wish i never got rid of my old Astra GTE 16v mk2

            Good job though

                      as always great work mate but that IC is fugly, that's a bright idea gone wrong, looks awful.

                      the compo motive wheels look great on anything.

                      are those AP racing calipers from a VX220? yikes i hope not they wouldn't stop a reliant robbin never mind an astra!

                        Thank's.......fmic is charge cooled and doubt its to everyones taste lol, It's been a nice straight well built car that i have enjoyed working on. The Astra bertone worked to my advantage as it is a nice paint colour that i have managed to refresh and show some gloss effects on.

                          I always liked the Astra coupe it was a very good design that lasted beyond it's time and a great colour too, came with a very good 2.0 turbo engine as well

                          if it has one.
