This is the thread of my 6th corsa, was originally a 1.4 sport but fitted with a c20xe.

the car was originally a irish import and arden_paul_m had it(when it looked its best)

few pics of when paul had it:




he done everything to that car, was so clean. ended up being sold for 2000 to another member on here M.B.

he ended up painting the roof white and tbh the car was shite compared to when paul had it!

dezzy.kay then had it
few pics:




he then stripped it to a shell with just engine and running gear and sold it to my mate kris
sills etc were all flattened no arches standard bumpers etc.

so he tried to get it looking a bit like what it did


since iv had it (1 week)
i have fitted my speedlines,depos,mhw's etc
ordered new number plate light lense,gasket kit,headbolts,sump bolts etc.

the speedlines were cathcing on the arch so i have sold them and looking for cesaros to go gloss black and morettes

plans are:
fit gasket kit and new bolts
get roof tidied up and resprayed gloss black
get all trim redone professionally gloss black
morettes
new steering wheel
few chrome parts for the engine
full service

just generally tidy it

couple pics of it in my posession(currently at my mates awaiting gasket kit fitted)




i will upload more pictures of progress as i have just bought
morettes,cesaros,geniune vaux wind deflectors,omp rear strut brace,sport airbox,k&n panel filter and a few other daft parts

the sills were flat al the way along on both sides a had to bend them back out with grips but that just made the metal weak so whenever you jack the car up now they crush back up there totaly fecked
