Well thought it was about time i started a project thread about my new car. Its a 1.6 corsa sport, had 66,000 miles when i bought it, had to trek down to manchester to get it though was totally standard until i got my mits onto it
Firstly i got the timing belt and water pump changes as there was no evidence that they had ever been done, so thought that was a smart move, then came the lowering. I went for 60mm nova spring on the front and 100mm custom sprngs on the back, with gmax shocks alround

Then swapped over some little interior parts from my other corsa such as vectra chrome handles and a tigra interior tray

And some random shots of the interior and the bay

There was one bad point to the car, it needs the front bumper re-sprayed as its very stonechipped
