im alittle bored and thought of a few ideas for his car



ive got alittle carried away with the blur tool, so carried on and smoothed most of it Oh and repositioned the fuel cap to the front drivers wing. Btw is that possible? since i wouldnt mind doing that on mine Also gave his car some white alloys...saw some in the carnoisseur mag and want them for my blue corsa, so used helium's as a test
what ya think guys? are my photoshop skills good?

...hmm yea i know what ya mean about the alloys, but saw a black car with em today in town and it looks mint! So wanted to see what they looked like on the same colour car as mine with a kit etc. i think they look alright though, maybe i should find some other white ones..hmmm
As for the fuel cap, ive always thought about doing this on mine, but reading the haynes manual and having a butchers around the car it looks like it would be a git to reposition it Does anyone know of a corsa with it done? or something similar?

you can have the fuel cap anywhere if you put enough work into it. porsches have theres on the front wing cos their engines are in the boot. if you smooth the lip off the fuel flap it looks alot smoother

yea but obviously on a porsche the front is empty, so the fuel tank goes there and its fairly straight forward. But on a corsa i would have to run a pipe all the way from the front to the fuel tank which towards the back end of the car and its the running of the pipe im not sure about Where would the best place be to run the fuel pipe to the tank? And also, whats roughly the diameter of the fuel pipe on a corsa?

Im thinking keeping a fuel tank near a hot engine is a damn stupid idea. What if it caught fire, the fuel tank would kaboom before you noticed there was a fire

lol the fuel tank will be in its original place mate, but yea there could be problems with the fuel pipe being close to the engine, although im sure it could be heat shielded some how if its a right bastard to do, i wont bother, but if it isnt that bad then im might have a go doing it and see what happens
