Hi, i'm Phil, got my car in feb last year for when i repassed my driving test after having my licence taken off me for getting 6points in the first 2 years, anywho, it stayed how i got it for a while (already colour coded lowered and alloys.

I then added a sebring backbox off my 1.2 and tried the alloys i had from the same car.

then got a mini for a toy for 200 and started driving that for a while, till it got too cold lol.

Started driving the corsa again in dec but unfortunatly drove into a clio and broke the front abit, but it has given me the motivation to go further with the thing.

Here are some of my progress pics...

with my old corsa alloys on...


Sebring backbox


The day i got it


Front (my fave)


Faceless after crash


Lovely silver bonnet


Slight crease in bonnet


Added bucket


Alloys i got today



What do you guys think?

i'm having my blue bonnet repaired and badboy'd, the alloys are being refurbed and maybe sprayed white.

having the boot semismoothed and a general touchup.


Phil

Badboy bonnet is beingdone as we speak and will hopefully be back by feb (hes doing as and when he can)

UPDATE:

After waiting three weeks for the bodyshop behind where i work to have a look and quote me for some work one of the sprayers popped round to borrow an tyre gauge, i asked him if he'd spray my bumper for me and he said yes, 30 bargin!!

also...
got bored at work today so sprayed my clock surround, looks good for my first time spraying...
didn't think about taking pictures before the first coat

first coat

third and lacquer


different angle

After spraying the clock surround and being quite happy with the results, i decided to carry on spraying things, i did the heater control cover and the inner door handles surrounds.

Primered


Painted


Roughed sanded


filler primered


painted


On the car






And got my bumper back from being sprayed

Damage to old one



New one on



And as you can probablu see actually got round to making the angel eyes work

antrachite alloys, prefer them silver tbh, standard rear lights or smoked ones, lexarse are definately a no no, puts you in a certain catergory of cars....

those wheels were in very bad condition and were not worth repairing, they were quite nice tho. my lexarse lights well b departing soon but i've just realised from the pictures that they look wank, they are a lot darker in the flesh.
