Up to date pic -



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here goes!

Looked on ebay and autotrader and found the corsa for 1500o.n.o. A 'W' reg 1.4l Corsa Sport which included fox alloys, lexus lights, lowered 60mm on GMAX springs & Shocks, a pipercross induction kit and an FSE Power boost valve, the only problems being a severely cracked front bumper and a bit of a crease down the rear quarter panel but overall, in good nick!..... so I went up to him with a grand and he took it

so I got home n wacked the subs & Amp in that I bought cheap from a mate and took it out for the night



The next morning I woke up, put the debadged slatted grill on that I'd ordered and then took the car for a bit of a drive and took some pics:









I Bought a Peco backbox and put that on again cheap from a mate who used to have a corsa. It'll do for now...



Ordered Corsasport.co.uk stickers for the rear windows and a few days later they arrived (reppin it inniittttttt )



A mate the colour coded the rub strips but did a crap job of it... nevermind

Valentines day came and my missus had bought me a set of black angel eyes Didn't really have the balls to ask her if i could fit them the same day, so spent the day with her and got round to fitting them the day after:



My girlfriend bought tinting spray for her lights so I did hers, swapped my lexus lights for standards with a mates mum and tinted mine, looks a lot better...

You can also see that I found myself a Punto Wiper arm to tidy the rear up a bit.



I didn't really know what to do next but I saw a lad on here selling a few things off his corsa (well splitting the whole thing) so I popped down there and bought myself a badboy bonnet, although its GSI grey, it still looks alright for now:



While I was up in liverpool picking up the bonnet, I fell in love with the steinmetz skirts which came with the GSI arches so I went up there again the next day to pick them up:



Bonding the arches on as the clips were broke -



Skirts on -



A mate of mine works in a scrap yard and a corsa came in with a chipped ecu so I bought it and wow it flys especially between 5000 & 6000 revs but theres a horrible flat spot between 4000 & 5000 So i need to figure out how to cure that!


Cheers for reading
