have a look round on roybacer, was done to a nova recently, but reqires lots of cutting and modding of the back and space framing of the front, if you're asking you've got lots of skills to gain beofre starting it.

and don't forget measure twice cut once! Also before cutting out the floor that you need to ie. for the tunnel etc make sure you brace the shell well enough so it doesnt distort!

Alot of work mate as you also need to have your engine sitting norht to south rather than east to west, so alot of the bulk head needs cutting and making , plus a tunnel for the gearbox to sit under.
you have also got to think the steering rack will need to be made/custom one used as where the normal Corsa one is it will be in the way.
plus all the back end need chopping out for the Diff.

Alot more work the 4x4 mate. which i can also get pic for aswell if needed

Pics so you get the idea this is a Corsa shell btw (ford gearbox)



any more info needed feel free to ask mate
Hope this helps
