well not had much time of late to work on corsa my house seems to be taking over my life, but i have got around to refurbishing arb mounts and brackets which were then powder-coated and repaced with new bolts and nuts, i have decided to keep the origional arb and just fit poly bushes, i have then stripped and painted the arb in gun metal grey (same colour as my wheels and rocker cover)




and yesterday i went over herpenden to pic up my planned smooth rear, which i was doing to a post 97 bumper i brought but after stavs tragic loss of his car i brought this from him yesterday thanx stavs top lad, he even made me a cup of tea



now awaiting my bilstein b6 shocks and eibach springs to arrive and my -90mm rear springs

i'd keep a 2" exhaust for it. i just think 2.5" is a bit big.

maybe 2.25?

today my chassis/tie bars came back from powder coaters and had to get new lower arms as old ones were for old style corsa so thats was crap but got there in the end, and then i fitted the powerflex bushes and also here is my new arch liners fitted.

should be able to actually start assembling the car back together soon and will see progress on front bumper bein re-painted by me at work soon as we have all the gear and fully equipped booth.
