Dan - your astra gsi shafts won't fit a Corsa they to long and won't fit also the inners won't fit the 22splines..

But Your 1.2 hubs will be ok if you find some corsa Gsi/diesel/1.6 sport... 22 spline shafts mk2 cavalier inner cv's will go straight on
They work a treat

Very true Corsa_scotty,My mates xe Corsa used to eat cv's and hubs on mtech fat shafts all the time
Hence why I didn't even try them on mine

Car has came along very nicely though! Would be very proud to own it if it was mine. Just goes to show simplicity can be a winner when teamed up with the right bits Out of intrest was it easy to polish the rocker and cambelt covers? I know you probs didnt do them but i thought you may know who did I quite fancied some myself but your cars tempted me to go down the standard route with the Red cover on the silver rocker
