Got alot to do on it, i.e. sparing the body panels, hadles, rear spoiler, tints and GSI front bumper.

Mods already done, 17 OZ rims, and lowered 30mm, sprayed white interior

I think it's going to take a while for it to work back the £1000+ you lost getting rid of the coupe though!

it's more stressful for me just looking at an astra ;)

I thought you had the clutch/flywheel all sorted anyway and it was all running sweet?

personaly i think it has awsome potential . but i think
one of the best mods u can do first is to definatly find a body kit for it .. just a bigger back and front bumper .. btw how much u get the van for ?
