AST Package - Opel GT
« on: July 31, 2012, 07:21:05 AM »
tonight the GT is scheduled to go into the shop and it will come out at the end of the week (probably during the weekend).

it's going to be "a love it or hate it" result. in my mind it's going to be a love it, but i willhave to wait till i see it in person..

hopefully nothing will go wrong and i won't have to postpone it.

i will get back on time with pics (coz i ve heard there's a crazy member here, always requesting pics) and i will also unveil what AST stands for  :lol:

so, stay tuned (well most of you are already tuned - some have upgraded turbos too  :rofl:)

No money for wrapping, so I'm guessing he is getting a new antenna.

hope the guy won't post any more pics...
he posted it to show me that he put it inside the store for the night.
i think i busted the guy's b@lls repeating him to take good care of it....
I know for sure that you won't like it Kelu, although it MAY come out with a huge turbo or a supercharger....

Went to the shop today to check progress.... It looks small job but is only details to be done which is time consuming. Plus greek deadlines kepp postponing...

I will post later some pics but the end result will show when its all ready and done.

AST package stands for Arabas Styling package. Its not entirely my idea, i picked up some inspiration from my mind, Mustang, Renault megane red bull and from various pics from internet
