anyone know if the front end of the tigra bolts straight onto a corsa and vice versa? my mate is buildinga v6 corsa but wants a tigra front end. also where is the best place for a conversion kit to fit an older cavaliarv6 engine into a corsa?

cheers kerry

Tigra panels do fit on a corsa but needs more work than just bolting them on!

You'll find it looks shocking because the Corsa will still have plastic rear arches so you should get some metal ones welded in if you go with a tigra front.

cheers guys, i knew you had to change the slam panel, what about the back of the front wings? do they fit the doors or not? or do they need to be re shaped?

cheers for the help

they dont fit the door mate, easy way to do it, is keep the corsa wing at door end, and weld the tigra wing to it
