might as well get one going done lotsto it most stuff done without the camera will whack some pics i have on here anyway

bought from a guy in ruislip 1.2 8v power, was meant to be the daily as i have an old ford corsair as old fords are my roots( got a mk1 cortina 2 door with a 2.0ltr in it but thats the long term!) so yeah ermm project number 3- had to break this to the rents wasnt amused i can say haha






the interior or lack of it


tigra scuttle



then painted the wheels anthracite cause the silver really wasnt that decent kerbing from prev owner on it and flaking away


(shite exhaust it came with )


state the original pre bumpers were in - flaking like dandruff, found out they were previously painted (badly) white then painted (badly again) on top of that satin black, so stuffed them out and bout a post black bumper




and collected these puppies and fitted the rears got to do the fronts but need to buy correct puondage front springs



the rears were rebuilt with new inserts etc same with fronts cant wait to finish fitting these and get the belly on the floor!

oh and put new cv's on it (had to use meriva outers and inners were fine, as its an early shaft couldnt find the correct outer , and 2.0ltr calipers and drilled grooved and vented discs bought from joey 1.6 sport from here


really bad at taking pictures i just get into the mood and crack on , cars changed a bit already this is what i have on here atm got new seats , cesaros painted a different colour and few other bits too will put more pics i have tomorrow and take some up to date ones as well

bear with me haha

dug out some more pictures

some of when i repaired the cracked b pillars both sides done i still need to fill them and code them in!(the overspray was cleaned up away from the rubber after haha)









and how it stands now thought id do something a little different as i got really bored on the anthracite ideally they need to be blasted back and redon as they have about 10 layers of paint on the cesaros haha
and got a sportex backbox and vaux mudflaps all coming together



interior - decent ice install , alpine everything pretty much still need to install the rears yet, and got a proper gsi leather wheel and some sport recaro seats much better than the original interior im sure you will agree



and one of the corsair as it stands cant wait for this one!



hope you like the corsa and corsair
