Some of you may remember other glacier White project - http://www.corsasport.co.uk/board/viewthread.php?tid=605334

After having a vw for a few months I quickly got bored of it so got another corsa! Some people think I'm a twat for getting it but I like them so there we go. Dirt Cheap insurance and parts ready available

Body works bot the the best condish but I'll get it mint again.










As you can see from the first pics it was a lady owner they were a right prick to get off! Not a spec of rust on it anywhere apart from the bottom of the passenger wing where there's a dent. Apart from that and a couple of other little dings it's all good!

Not alot of plans tbh, different from the last one:

-Get the bodywork spanking
-Fan blades
-Colour code
-Some lows

Already gave it a machine polish . Next purchase will be paint on Thursday

Comments welcome
