Hi everyone!

Well where to begin.... My name is Gav and i'm from Chesterfield, north Derbyshire (near Sheffield!) and i have recently become a member of the Astra Club!

I have a Astra H 3dr 1.6 Design in Star Silver, bought about seven weeks ago... and then crashed two weeks ago, a combination of being late for work, an off camber corner over a slight crest, and mud on the road, and as a result my baby is poorly and not looking her best. Luckily everyone inside was fine, i had the car recovered and began an insurance claim, but when they decided to write it off i cancelled the claim and had it back to fix myself. Unfortunately she is now a Cat C, but she will live on one day!

I now need a new front bumper, rad/air con condenser, suspension needs further investigating, new tyres and probably rims, and spraying and panel beating which i have a man for, but first i need a new drivers side door as she is not secure at the minute! I have found one on ebay for £74.99 plus a courier charge, just wondered what forum-ers think?

Thanks for reading guys, i wish i was introducing myself under better circumstances though! I'll post some pictures up!

That is a quality effort mate, top work.

There is a vxr front bumper in the for sale section, as for a door, just get the cheapest you can find.

There is a very good beakers in Sheffield, I'll see if I can find their details. The guy to contact is Shane Kent.

It was on Staveley lane bud! No, it doesn't to be honest, gutted the insurance company made it a Cat C but the guys they use for fixing them have to put everything back using Cauxhall parts and charge the earth for bodywork etc! I'll take a look in the for sale section, thanks!

What does my post count need to get to? Might just pay the £12 to be honest, I think after the welcome I've had and looking around and seeing some of the cars on here, I'll be sticking around and possibly coming to some meets once I've got it back otr!

Haha nothing like making an entrance is there!
