My red H with green bootstrip and wing mirrors...

Alright guys, I'm in the process of writing up a progress thread but I'm waiting until next month when she's lowered and has her new exhaust before I post it...

In the mean time, I just got her back from Danny (jigger) who's carried out some amazing work on my car and I thought I'd get some photos up!

I went for red and green to try something different. I chose the colour of the Focus RS as it looks outstanding when the sun hits off it... You'll either love it or hate it but I'm delighted with it and and just want to show her off a bit! :mrgreen:


When I first got her she looked like this (2010 59 plate SRI):





If only I'd done a bit more research, I'd have made an XP kit a priority! Anyway, here's how she's standing today:












And this wee one Danny took for me when it was at his body shop getting some work done... It's filthy but I just love the photo :)





Anyway, like I said, I just wanted to show her off a wee bit. I'm looking at lowering her and getting a custom exhaust within the next month or two where I'll finally post my progress thread...

I should say a massive thanks to Danny (jigger) here - he's carried out all the work on my car; the colour coding, the painting, the fitting my XP kit etc - the list goes on and on. A top guy who's consistently went above and beyond. Thank you dude :)

Nice! I like it, it's different and we like different :D

Wasn't convinced that red and green would work but it's not half bad, looking forward to seeing more pics of it!
Aye mate, risky but I love it :) Can't wait to take some proper photos.

Thanks dude. :)

Looks good, you planning on doing the front v in green too ?
Thanks mate. Nah, I like it red... I think green would be too bold, I want the green to be subtle :) I'm looking to get a colour-coded Opel Grill with the green emblem instead :p

What are those alloys? They look good! :)

They're VX wheels... They work for me! I've thought about getting new ones but I've literally only seen a handful of Astra H's with them and I quite like that. I think they rolled them out with the last batch of H's - mines is a 2010 59 plate.

Thanks mate - and yep I know, that was last year at MOT time. I'm replacing all four next week for safety reasons anyway lol... There used to be a website I seen back last year on here that was really good for tires - cheap too. I can't remember it though :p
