So after finding out the rally car i was away to buy was completly fucked and botched together i decided to continue project shitheap. Everyone slated it for looking shit, i think it looks better now after todays little tidy-ups

Ive still got to do;

Paint rear drums black
Dark smoke tints on rear
light smoke tints on front
A nice green calliper paint (cant find any nice greens!!!)
GSI skirts and bumpers (i have, but they are getting sold and i will buy ones that are 100% perfect
and front mudflaps (same as rear)
Big brake kit is in post, so is gsi fogs and grill
i have a fully flush boot, but thinking against it and want semi flushed
Picy;



Comments and suggestions appreciated

Its my first car, and ive been riding bikes for 2 years, i have just sold my kawasaki ZX6r and i really regret it so i will be getting corsa to a nice state and then its bike again keep car for winter/rainy days or days i cant be fucked taking the bike out, rode the bike in snow was fun...

This was this morning before i did some work to it, the wheels were just put on, and took it for a spin as its hitting the arches :/ but its not too bad, just hits on big potholes :/

the trim that is off is going back on as it looks tacky! the other side is done - and looks allot better, but it just needs little touches to the outside, then when im happy ill make my move on the inside.

Looks good mate, imo I wouldn't go for tints, looks good without them.

I would -

Smoked depo's
Front mudflaps
Paint calipers

Also wouldn't go for the fully smooth boot, Semi-smooth look 100x better.

Just bought a showcage, and rear strut

Will be getting bucket seats when I find a nice pair, get the showcage and strut white and attach harnesses to strut ( think it looks better but will leave front seatbelts in for mot purposes

I really think tints would make it stealthy but, then you wouldn't see cage :/ maby light tints all round so you can still see it and at the same time keep it stealthy looking

Will get pics tonight of how she stands with bump strips back on, also need to fix spoiler as sealant is coming off

My 18th is next month and I'm not going to magaluf anymore so I will have lots of monies to spend

Got a flush fuel cap that needs painted too, that will look a bit better

Yeah, new rear lights would improve it but apart from that it's nice, love them wheels. There should be more of them on B's.
