Wendy the coupe
Well firstly im sorry for the late build thread but only just worked out how to put pics on ere lol

Well where to start........

Astra coupe 1.8 in titan gold.

The day i brought her
[Image: C42B00B3-770F-4D84-B0AA-823B9468F373-126...304e36.jpg]

I brought her for £2350 3 years ago in complete standard form with one lady owner half leather half alcantara interior (seemed a great idea at the time)

[Image: 81FC36B1-185C-4F14-8CB2-D06D41A9A814-126...25ddfd.jpg]
First mods came

H.i.d
New plates
Stereo
Boot build
Window tints
60mm lowering springs

[Image: 70317EDE-77F4-4E2D-92A9-0ACFB0804338-126...7ed230.jpg]

[Image: 0D50AF4B-182B-44A8-AACC-FB85A00B6243-126...2d8545.jpg]
[Image: F4BA6FEE-261D-4934-9302-22A9F6AFD9F4-126...688d45.jpg]
[Image: 1EAE8079-FFB6-4AE9-8CFB-D3DD21EBDCF4-126...5decc0.jpg]

Then came a set of se2 alloys i had painted in gloss black with gold metal flake which i sold to buy the current wheels off ed sheeran

[Image: F90DD448-ED74-40CD-9502-CADD134F69A3-503...453ee9.jpg]

[Image: 96621AED-81DE-4A85-89A0-99779100135D-126...1768d6.jpg]
Then came many many boot build changes and a few suttle mods

Over the next few years had a baby and moved house so pretty much got put on hold for over a year.... And then boom i lost my licence for 6 months so decided wendy needed a new lease of life as some chav decided to key both sides my car outside a pub one night so that sparked the start of project overhaul lol

RE: Wendy the coupe
firstly she got stripped down to next to nothin just a rolling shel and prepped for paint and primer, not to much prep needed just few scratches here and there, also took this oppotunity to strip the interior out for a retrim and also so could paint under the carpets ect ect
