hello. Im Adam, 18 from wales and i drive an Arden blue, 1.2 Corsa b. was mint when i bought it a year ago

the car looked like this when i bought it




the rear was debadged when i had it so was quite happy with that.

I kept it standard for the first year because was only 17 & skint
but this year i managed to get sorted and decided to start doing it up.

I managed to get a debadged griill and Alloys for 150 quid



then next on my list was lowering and i managed to get a set of springs for 60 so on they went



then about 2 weeks ago I was driving to work in the rain and managed to go into the back of an 08 fiesta ST Ssnapped my grill, Smashed my headlight, bent my bumper all shapes. Wasnt fun or cheap . managed to convince him not to go through insurance though





And heres how she stands at the moment



Have got another debaged grill and skirts to go on and also got Black angel eyes and a badboy bonnet on order.

To do list
Smooth door handles/boot with pop locks
Nice Set wheels (Black tigra or Cesaros Im thinking)
coilovers
window tints
new front bumper (because mine still isnt fixed properly so if anyone has one doesnt have to be standard)
fit the Angel eyes, badboy bonnet
MHW rear light and repeaters

among other things

Smooth doors are great fun for winding folk up.

If your going euro, De-strip the side and clear or smoked side repeaters for a start.

Slammed and different wheels are a must.

Theres many things to be done to make it euro but think of your own ideas, dont listen to people typing on a screen, Do what you like :thumbs
