Ive been thinking of 2 tone with the bottom half being white and top half being light mettalic blue or matt black.

also morrettes,smoothing out vents in frobnt bumper, smoothing mirrors into base pltes and mybe base plates into car and maybe changing gsi spoiler for a thin C3 style top spoiler

Does that petrol cap flip open remotely?

I'd also look at different rear lights......standard clears, or something else, not sure. Maybe a set of Morettes at the front, aswell, there's not too much going on there that it'd look cluttered.

Maybe blend in the arches and skirts, aswell?

yeah - have thought that - thought u meantput something else - i m kicking myself for not having them done when it was in the bodyshop - but got told led side repeaters in wing mirrors were illegal - then a week after it came out of the shop my mechanic said it was fine to get rid of them


btw ne photoshops that people want to do of my car if theyre bored would be welcome - Im just learning aty the mo ( P/s that is ) so not good enough to post yet

change the exhaust or get the other side done
single wiper
remove washer jets
bullet vent on one side of the bonnet
two tone, matt black sounds good, do it the way i wanted not bottom half and top
smooth the GSI spoiler in



plus really extreme:
weld the boot up and smooth it all in

have some funky shape smoothed into the boot too, like my old corsa lettering but not sticking out as much

hydrolics

have the wings extended over the lights

wnt rid of the gsi sppoiler paul, already got single wiper on now - and gonna have jets smooted out - but have one relocted somewhere

dont wanna touch bonnet aprt from that tho - dont want a vent - wanted to be different by not having one
wings sounds good idea tho, they're smoothing the side repeaters out when it goes back in, so in theory could do that as well

had wanted do alot of that if i had bought a project corsa but doubt i will now, too little cash
meant to be saving pay off my o/draft but don't seem to be able.

don't go too subtle on your next spoiler as it won't suit the car.

mite not have one at all - dont know yet... havnt decided - bu I saw my car without it on in the bodyshop and thought it looked well different - a kitted corsa with no spoiler.

hydraulics could be a bonus, cant afford to lower the car cause of where the missus lives and living out in the country - but hate it not being lowered enough when out and about - hydros could work quite well.



If I was gonna go extreme as well, Thionk Id weld and smooth in tailgate, and passenger door into wing and rear 3/4 and roof; as well as havin the roof rails removed

but then I wouldnt use it every day and hence there'd be no point - too impractical
