Here's my car, a 2014 Astra Elite Tourer 2.0CDTI. I only got her in October last year and to date she has covered just over 18K.

Since joining this site I've carried out a few small mods...

Despite the kids/Mrs using it as a taxi. lol.

The previous owner takes most of that credit, as we only got her October last year with only had 11.5k on the clock.

Haha, I did that. At least it becomes more useable for the service manual booklet.

It didn't take me long. OK, it doesn't look as good as the factory one, and I made it from some material we had left lying around in the scraps bin in the workshop at work. I drew up a cardboard template and then transferred it onto the material and cut it out. filing it the final shape was the time consuming bit.

I wasn't sure I'd like a shelf there, hence the DIY approach first. Was contemplating buying the proper one if it turned out ok, but I'm quite happy with the one I made.

I'll try and take a couple of pics sometime.

I'd been looking for a while before I found this one. Couldn't justify a new one at £150.

That’s another thing on my ever growing list but as usual with genuine Vauxhall parts they’re pretty pricey! Best I’ve found so far is £52
Need them though I think.

Nothing really.
 I couldn't find anyone local to fit them and people kept telling me it was a easy job, so I decided to have a go myself. Unfortunately without a set of ramps or a decent jack I couldn't get under the car to remove the retaining bolts and remove the bumper.  So after about 3hrs of struggling in the cold I gave up and fitted the tyre valves instead.
