Hi everyone,

Been on here for a while now and finally decided to make a project thread.

My names Dan and im from Sheffield,ive always loved Corsa's so i got myself one,looked around for abit and found myself a very,very tidy silver SXi. It had 69000 miles and it was completely standard which is what i wanted.

Here's some pictures from the place i bought it :

And when i got it home :

[IMG]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/Photo046.jpg[/IMG]

First thing i did was buy a badgeless grill and clear side repeaters,got them on straight away. :)

[IMG]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/Photo050.jpg[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/Photo051.jpg[/IMG]

Next i purchased some alloys. At the time i wanted some 5 spoke silver alloys but i didn't know alot about vauxhall alloys and the offset. So i bought some 15" Dezent alloys.

[img]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/corsab1-1.jpg[/img]

Got the car looking like this and then decided to de badge the rear,really pleased after i done it. :)

[img]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/debadged3-1.jpg[/img]

[img]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/debadged4-1.jpg[/img]

Next on the list was to lower it. Firstly i wanted to lower it 60mm but same again didn't know how low i could go so i went the safe route and got the car lowered 40mm all round and thenpainted my calipers and drums in red to clean it up abit.

Some pictures of it at my dad's work :

My 18th birthday came round soon and my mum and dad got me a private plate. S25 DTT, my birthday and initials is what it stands for. :thumbs:

[img]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/photo076k.jpg[/img]

I then made a stealth shelf which i was proud of :)


[img]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/img0034ft-1.jpg[/img]


[img]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/img0039yn-1.jpg[/img]

Once all that was done this is how the car sat :


[img]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/img0162-1.jpg[/img]


[img]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/img0165d-1.jpg[/img]


[img]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/img0148yk-1.jpg[/img]

Next on the list was my halo headlights,got them fitted at my dad's work aswell and adjusted the lights so they were level :(


[img]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/img0422a-1.jpg[/img]


[img]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/img0420n.jpg[/img]

And then i had the beast of the exhaust fitted :) 4" Oval Sportex backbox and 2.5" full exhaust system :) Sounds awesome!!

Then i bought some rear lexus lights and at the time i liked them and stayed on for about half a year,soon went off them. :lol:


[img]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/img0111eg.jpg[/img]

Once id taken my Lexus lights out and fitted standard ones back in i colour coded my boot handle and door handles


[img]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/img0911x.jpg[/img]

From this

To this


[img]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/img0920r.jpg[/img]

A few more pics of my stealth shelf

[img]http://i865.photobucket.com/albums/ab215/danscorsasxi/img0101jt.jpg[/img]

This is how the car looked and then the Steinmetz replica`s went on :)

Very tidy and straight example by the looks of things. I'd say keep the angels and just change the wheels for Team Dynamics or something.

Stay away from what everyone else is doing and be unique, that's my suggestion.

Does that mean how wide the wheel come out? If it's E49 does that mean the wheel goes inside the arch? Cheers pal

Hey dude Well first,once offered up we drilled holes about 10cm gaps all the way down the skirts and then put a line of tiger seal on top and round arches then simply screwed little screws in to keep it nice and flush,its the only way i think you can do it to get it flush Then once dried,take screws out,fill the holes,wait to dry,flat it back so its nice and smooth then prime and what ever colour you want on top Good luck,any other questions,just ask dude,Dan
