Was just looking at this thought it would help people who were thinking of doing this mod. Although its not on a corsa the same principles apply.
Hope is some help.

Because the Escort Cossie is built on the Sierra Saph floor pan the wheels sit a bit further forward.

So if you fit the wings your wheels wont sit central which looks a bit weird.

My mate done it, just a bit tricky trying to get everything to line up etc.

If your fitting fibreglass copies it wont be as tricky as fitting genuine parts

Why wont it be as hard if they are fiberglass copies?

Also do you think i will have to buy the skirts made for the cossie wide arches or will any corsa skirts go on with modification?

Thanks, si
