*** UPDATE!! *** *** 21/07/21/07/2013 ***

Few small updates, I was gutted not being able to bring the car to Billing, and missed not being on the CS stand. Got a few things on at the mo, with moving house, just bought another car to restore a Fiesta RS Turbo diamond white. I will do a separate project thread when i get a min.

Anyway, bit of a change with colour theme, I had done the anthracite on grey so ive decided to go back to factory look.

Before:




After:



While I was at it, The top pic shows the Green Induction Kit I have had on the car since the conversion, I wanted to fit a Cavalier/Calibra Airbox, so after a few hours got it fitted, very tight fit indeed !!! Its now fitted exactly as it should be and with a K&N panel filter, hopefully this will help with heat dissipation.

Only a nightime pic of when finished and one of the bay from this morning,





At the moment, that is all, I realise they are not major updates, but i will get there. Next up the wheels are going back silver and ride height slightly higher. Then more standard looking exhaust. Next year Stand alone management set up!

Thanks for looking Comments always welcome!

Not sure how I have missed this thread in the past, fucking epic GSi

I'm sure there is a pic knocking about from PVS a few years ago of your car next to my smoke grey XE.

The rocker/timing belt cover look boss Ad'. I like the air box too. Very factory.

Was a shame I didn't see you at Billing. We all seen you drive past in Astra and was like "was that Ad?" Lol.

This has been my favourite Corsa LET since i saw it in TV all those years ago. After randomly coming across this thread, i am very pleased it is still around and with the original owner/builder.

I am even more impressed with the unphased direction the car has been taken in and continued to strive for.... super clean factory fresh, I love it, even down to the none colour coded door handles.

I look forward to the install of the stand alone management next year or whenever you get around to it with new houses and new family additions.

My only criticism is that i cant buy it

Stunning work mate
