though i might do i big post on how my cars come on since i first got it

well now am back from holiday and have now job im gonna be spending everyday on the corsa too get it ready for ists

heres all the wip pics i have so far and all the pics of the new parts that will be getting fitted in the coming months

so i started off with a bog standard "ginger" 1.2 8v corsa, lowered it 60mm an it stayed like this for about 12 months






made a badboy bonnet cos i was bored



wrecked the engine rallying down some dirt track haha, knocked the sump plug out and thought fuck it and drove home

this wasn't so bad because a week later i ended up with a lil sleeper





then me being stupid decided too drive my mates car with no insurance , lost my licence

this is where i got serious and took the car off the road about a year ago and started the bodywork which is what im good at (its my job )


h



so it was nearly ready for primer and painting and the i happend too find some punto lights in work , and one thing lead too another .............







then i thought it would be cool too have 2 showcars with matching paint hehe,

so primer




and paint





and as she stands now waithing for a million parts too be fitted



some of the millions of parts too be fitted ;

front seats (got full leather but only got pics of seats)



bits and bobs



and my favourite mod ......bike carbs and megajolt management

Cars looking ace, make a nice pair with the fiesta also!

Wheels suit it perfectly, good choice
