Re: First Timer Repair Project - 2002 Vauxhall Astra SXI

Here's a list;

  • 3000w petrol-driven generator
  • 2.5HP air compressor & 25-foot air line
  • 2000w heat gun
  • Infra-Red lamp
  • air-driven D/A sander with interchangeable discs & sanding pads
  • Set of PDR rods & levers
  • slide hammer
  • 'Ding Puller' (air-driven tool for removing dents when access from behind isn't available)
  • 3 x trolley jacks (variable reach & height)
  • 2 x sets of axle stands
  • a very comprehensive toolkit for dismantling & removing trim
  • windscreen chip repair kit
  • scratched glass repair kit
  • upholstery & leather repair kit
  • plastic welding kit
  • Bottles of various compounds & polishes
That would the majority of jobs/scenarios (I may have missed something).


If you are on Facebook, you can see more examples of my work (some really unusual items); search Paul Soave, then you'll find my company.

This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
