Hi there, been registered a little while but not said anythin on here yet.

So i managed to pick myself up a 1.5TD corsa b, P reg, 87k on the clock...price:0 only had to pay for repairs which were very few, think it cost me about 300 in all, and some of the work was just done so it didnt have to be done later on. So I then decided that I would have a go at modding the car a bit. Thanks to a mate between us we have started to make a fiar bit of progress and hopefully have all the plans that we have come up with done by PVS. So far we have smoothed the boot, installed an amp and sub, angel eyes, sprayed standard alloys white, and soon to add a vinyl to give them a one of a kind look, should look great when done, we have started to smooth the bumpers, went to keep the pre 97 bumpers as most people seem to be going for post or gsi atm, started to prime the arches ready to colour code and installed a new head unit.

Future plans are:
next plans are:
finish the smoothing the back bumper and front bumper
colour code the arches and bumper plastics
get it lowered
get the new tyre
get the vinyls put on the wheels
vinyl the bonnet
tinted back lights
tinted reg plate light cover
get a debadged grill fitted
upgrade the brake disks and pads
vauxhall/gm mudflaps
then start on the interior

pics so far:
(will get better ones during the day)

yeah you can buy the rings off ebay, just need the headlights heat them up take off the front lense place them in and run the wires through, fit the rings, then close the lense back up, i know they are makeshift cause i can see the glue he has used to seal it around the inside of the lense.
