A little about me:
Im now 20 and live in Eastbourne! My first car was a 1.0 silver corsa that had been in an accident and i did it up completely on a minimum budget! Scrapyard alloys, chavy 4 inch japstyle back box

Heres how my old car looked





Anyway, i wanted to do a car that i actually plan what i wanted it to look like and after being inspired by naths atlantis blue (Now orange) i was incredibly excited when i won a nice little bargain on ebay!
1999 1.2 16v atlantis blue corsa b
50,000 on the clock which i was really chuffed with!
6 months mot and just ran out of tax!
I won it on ebay for 860 and knocked it down to 825 as there is a few little dinks around the car :/

Anyway heres how it was when i got it back after driving over 4 hours to Leicester to get it!





Then took off rubstrips and debadged!!




Then i bought some cav slabs and rubbed them down. Pretty good condition but with these awful perished giant tractor tyres on them!




Primering...




Couldnt afford tyres and had to do other things at college so the car stayed standard for like a month :/

Heres so pictures with my friends current project (Sean )





Then bought some 60mm jamex springs off here brand new 40 posted!!



First mod!! lol as i was waiting for my jamex shocks which i bought of ecclesturbo on here for 80 posted (cheers mate) i decided to fit these astra mk4 side repeaters!




Then i got to finally spray my slabs





Then my friend bought me a badgeless grill for my 18th so i fitted that



I ordered 4x brand new kuhmos off camskill for 160 quid posted! i could of got nankangs for like 120 but heard so many good reviews on kuhmo for what they are so i decided i would lower the car!
Heres how it sat on my steelies! Scraped on EVERYTHING!!





Got my tyres fitted and put them on and gave it a wash as i hadnt washed it since i bought it!
(Heres my pro photography skills )




Then had only 20 minutes to back to black before i had to go to work!
So i did the rear first



Then took a quick snap at work



Then got home and did the front but forgot to close bonnet properly after doing the front bumper





Im ordering my sportex 3inch outrolled cat back next week when i get paid and getting some rear mud flaps soon! Not sure if i want to put a spoiler on yet or not! still deciding! Also got some gsi skirts and arches here in silver but now seeing the black trim with my slabs im not sure if i want to colour code it or not! What do you guys think!?
Well thats it so far! Ive got a few places in mind to get some better photos so will get them soon!
