Hi everyone,as some of you know i'm Danscorsasxi's brother and i've just bought a black corsa b SXi 1.2 16v.Went to pick it up last night with Dan and my dad.Took some photos of it this morning before work





























First things i did to it was fit my brother's old sprayed V grill,punto rear wiper,new sidelight and headlight bulbs and replaced the side repeaters with the standard orange ones

Thanks for good comments on mine lads

We both gave it a good T-Cut and polish today because there were a few little scratches and it looks far better now.Were going to fit the 40mm springs for now and get the tow bar off

I think there alright tbh, i want it mainly to protect the bonnet before i can afford to have it sprayed. Dont want any more chips than what it already has Wanna do most of the other stuff before i get it sprayed, so gonna stick 1 on until i can afford to get it done.

It wouldn't cost much more to get it sprayed, bonnet bras are about 80 iirc, and they cause damage to the paintwork anyway.

Just had a look on ebay, can get em for 32.50 How do they damage the paintwork mate? You think its best to leave it then and get it sprayed straight away?

I thought they were more than that , I heard that they trap dirt underneath and cause light scratches and swirls. A few coats of wax and take it off when you wash the car it should be fine though. If your only fitting it as a temporary solution I wouldn't bother tbh.

If your fitting it because you like them and are going to leave it fitted then ignore me
