finally found a Corsa on ebay yesterday which was just round the corner from me, gave the seller a very low offer and he was obviously desperate to sell. The car is mint can't find any rust anywhere the paint hasn't even faded. will strip it all next week so if anyone wants any bits give us a shout

wasn't too hard to strip really as im nut reusing most of the bits so just put the bits in one pile and threw the bolts in a pot.
really can't say what im doing to it , but its gonna be super low and im very excited, trying new untested ideas and all that
