Ive redone my whole project Thread, i didnt enjoy to read my old one so surely some of you didnt, its more of a timeline of mods etc and more interesting! Hope you understand! Enjoy

Back in November 2006 I bought my first car for the grand sum of 500, a 1995 Vauxhall Corsa 5 door Merit! didnt plan to do much but oh how i forgot what i said.
heres what happened . . .

Car as standard, started modding it before i thought to take any photos, so this is the earliest photo i have of it!

The next few mods were Lexus lights, Alloys, M3 mirrors, you could see the direction it was headed and not a good one at that.

Next came the usual stuff - Headunit and audio gear, did my first small install, pedals, gear knob etc etc.

Then i Bought some 40mm lowering springs still just doing my own thing with the car, and also tidied up parts with a wire brush on a drill and some black hammerite.
Nice new Gmax springs

Before lowering

After lowering

i decided to go euro with the project, there were no 5 door euro corsas to my knowledge so it seemed the best way to go. I started to
buy Items along the way, first being the Mattig DTM cup mirrors, bargain at 40 posted, (worth alot more), i also gave away the lexus lights
and half tinted some standard rear lights. While the car was like this i wos searching for a set of dished euro rims.

Heres a few pictures of when i painted the Mattig mirrors

A comparison from the water filled lexus lights, think the new half tints look much better.

By this time i had sourced and bought Coilovers, Dished euro rims, Depo headlights, and pressed plates. This was a defining moment for hte car
i feel as it looked great in my opinion

The result!!!!

Smoooooth Gsi bumper


Then i set about having the rear bumper and the front arches colour coded to make the car more presentable.
Custom rear bumper and arches just in time for Modified Nationals 2008.

Also had Momo Team 280mm and a Side exit exhaust from exhaust UK in sheffield fitted.I also trimmed the rooflining, all door cards
and other various panels in a biscuit suede, many said it wudnt look right but never had a bad comment.

By this time, and after being reversed into and my smooth gsi showing signs of disrepair, i thought that the front needed to match the rear,
so for a week and jsut days before trax 2008 the car was back into the bodyshop, here are the results.

You may also notice i had changed the rear lights
when i picked the car up from the bodyshop from having the rear end done, i decided the black and half red lights looked shite, so these
were the best thing for the car In my opinion.

I hated the stance of the car being that the rear wheels were tucked too far into the rear wide arch, so 20mm spacers and a touch of ghetto camber sorted that out.

Here is a little boot build i made, i got bored and i wanted to learn to make them. turned out well

Hope you enjoyed my progress thread so far, there is alot more to come, various parts are for sale, moving onto bigger and better things

Watch this space!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
