corsa update...

whats this then....



smoked depo's so got them fitted asap



nova update..

got some more done today, built up my wiper motor with freshly painted backing motor... but couldnt just slap on a dirty wiper motor so a wee irn bru can was put on to tidy it up,



next up was my gsi tailgate, deiced to use this as its not got a wiper so started rubbing it down



and since im putting rear discs on decided to clean up my spare axle as its not got any drums or stub axles on it, just need the end plates grinded off and new disc conversion ones welded on, got calipers etc anyway. also thought id remove the bushes as im wanting to put polybushes on, so some burned them a bit and cut the end off and out they came





painted

just got my accpunt working again, well better update on both of these lol,

corsa;

been a while since i updated, originally didnt plan to do anything to this, but the speedlines went on, then it sat too high etc, did have the smoked depos but sold them as i was planning to sell it but as im planning to keep it now i went down the scrappies and managed to get a few bits today,



collected a 60mm gmax kit, clear depos (drivers glass cracked - didnt realise that till i was home ), sport spoiler, astra mk4 side reapeters then spotted a gsi interior but was a bit tatty so walked about and seen a sport interior which i was going to get till a spotted a vectra with half leathers so fancy them.







going to get the speedlines and spoiler painted in due course

few pics from today, lowered the corsa 60mm but not happy with the rear and also the pic doesnt do much justice as its on uneven ground also whipped springs out to see what 100mm rears would look like and imo looks much better







another small update, managed to split the clear depos and make smoked ones, but the srivers glass is in 3 different bits so ill need to get that sorted asap, also fitted some vauxhall mats and some alpine speakers,

few pics

split and painted



passenger back together see how it looked



wee test fit of them both (cant see smashed glass lol)



nice new mats and alpine speakers





so plans are, 100mm rears, vectra half leathers, painted anthricate wheels and arch trims/bumper tops and an irmy splitter

Both cars looking good! Does the Nova get left outside with that primer on? Only problem with that, if it does, is primer is very porus and moisture/wet weather will absorb it causing rust underneath with out you knowing! Plans sound good though

cheers for the comments, yeah the novas outside atm, got to fix the garage and try get it in there,

Corsa update; tinted the reverse lights red on the standard rears, got clear rears though that im going have a mess about with and see what i can come up with though also fitted a sport airbag steering wheel, took the airbag ring off the back though. going to need to wire up a seperate horn button for the MOT,





so next up is exterior plans, so far ive got the speedlines and a arden blue spoiler, been offered a tatty gsi bumper, but a mate has an irmscher splitter for sale, so either be;

gsi front bumper, steimetz replica skirts all silver etc, anthricate speedlines or irmscher splitter and anthricate bumper tops and arch trims with rubbing strips removed and silver or anthricate wheels.

other plans are a sportex back box, 100mm rear springs and a better interior

got round to gutting out the interior in the nova, few pics of the courtenay interior etc





uncut shelf and rear headrest conversion



cheeky 5th softstar



what im aiming for...



bit of a loose end atm with it though, plans were to turbo the 8v... and tbh its straightforward enough but ive only got a bare block and the price of nova buts are rocketing and trying to get them also are proving quite difficult...

my dad works at a local scrap yard though so ive been tempted be a x16xe to turbo, id be able to get a complete engine, with box, ecu, loom key and transponder for what itl cost me to get the 8v running and thats before turboing ...

so whats everyones thought on a baby xe turbo? same princaples as doing the 8v but the exhaust and turbo is easier as a corsa vxr unti bolts straight on

thoughts and comments welcome

well decided to stick to 8v

as some of you now i bought a bare 1.6 8v e16se when i got this, and since then ive been looking about for bits to build it up to complete spec, so i put up a post in the scottish region as it be too expensive to get everything posted induvidaly and got a few bits dropped off last night from fraser "thegingerwhinger". got a complete inlet manifold, early engine loom and battery loom, and a gearbox which consits of an f15 casing, f13 internals and the 5th gear from a nova diesel. all at a good price.

some bad news as one of my piston rings are away so ive decided to go ahead and rebuild the engine when funds allow. might be aswell since im turboing it and want it to last.

few pictures...







also got a standard flap type petrol cap from vxkev last week. dont really like the areo ones so this is more inkeeping with the oem+ theme



went out earlier and started to clean the gearbox up, hopefully get it painted silver soon, also started stripping the inlet so i could clean and prep that for painting.





comments welcome
