Hello,


I will introduce my self shortly, I'm a french seaman living in France and I bought a red cabby in 2015. I decided then to proceed first in 2015 to a 3.5 setup and then I changed my mind in 2016 and decided to go for a full restoration (engine,transmission, interior) thanks to my friend OnemanShow. He is a nonprofessional rebuilder :lmao: but for information he was the first french to build a 597hp astra years ago.


I'm sorry if I make some grammar mistakes I speak english as well as I can but I'm not bilingual.

Some more pictures and we dive slowly into the serious ;)



















































Thanks Benn ! I love this red so much:eek:


I bought some stuff to monitor my engine, a zeitronix to be more accurate with AFR, Boost pressure, EGT, Oil pressure etc. It will avoid to have 5 or 6 gauges inside of the car

Love your Cabby, I've had a few,

RED is fantastic, , Watch out for fading, after 05 vx made changes in paint,

before o5 paint tended to go pinkish,

I think you got lucky(Y)

Hate the roof colour , needs to be black.

That is my one and only criticism, You are nearly there,

Thank you mate.

In fact she already had a full detailling, I protect the car after each 2 washes with with and I'm not driving her so much (I drove 1800 in 2 years). That's why the paint is so fresh ^^

I prefer the red roof it is not so common on red cabby so I know thanks to that coulour and all the options, she is really unique
