+++ update PAINT job corsa 28/03/12 +++

well well well... update time corsa sport'ers! So since fitting my gsi kit it changed the whole cars looks and im over the moon with the looks now to be honest!
BUT.. even thought the flame red paint on my car was flame red still just didnt match the flame red new paint on the kit and started to show signs of the flame pink taking place (imo)

soOoOo had two sides and roof painted as everything else had been painted so why not go all the way and get rid of the little 'tiny' dents and rust marks here and there thats always bothered me..

so the story goes a little like this,

Removed for paint..

- de-bump stripped (as promised!)
- door x2 handles
- aerial and base
- mirrors
- window rubbers
- side wing rep''s
- roof rails
- petrol cap

should have really removed arches kit again butt after dave16turbo spent a good few hours fitting it perfect theres no way a wanted it taken off so my painter had all the gear to pull it back off the car body and parts so..i dont no there CODE names am no painter, BUT good news woop!!





so the paint removed and rust and dents starting to be taken care of!!!







prepped masked up window rubbers pulled back! and ready to rock...





roof



then the car was baked off at 75oC then the little new FLAME RED corsa came out in the sun shine to bling bling,





built back up few days later went out to take a few shots... welllll sun was at the horrible level of try and take a photo and be blinded!







my corsa then crana's rio verde c20let and fatjon's gsi z20let











the engine bay is getting some goodies next stay tunned for them, but this is and up to date pic anyways..











so qwick photos above to show the paint has helped alot! this Saturday its getting flat and polished so buff the paint right up! alos getting my tail gate and spoiler done again so all the same paint, maybe de-wipered havnt desided yet? got to say big shout out for Hendaz the painter for this though over the moon with the finish and cannot pick a fault so old saying goes you get what you pay for!!!

much much more to come its far from finished bought some new goodies off ebay etc so new update will be on soon
