Hey guys, thought i should start a thread on my corsa as i have been roaming around the site for a while now and i dont really use the other sites as much.
the car was given to me by my girlfriends mum as she did not need it anymore, i am currently learning to drive but i am an apprentice so no major updates for a while.
also my photos will not be very good as my driveway isnt that big haha.
the car is a 1996 1.2 8v in satin red.

as the car started








the car stayed standard for a while whilst i decided on what way to go, so along came a few minor mods.

debadged.


new seats and electric window doorcards and door pockets




then a brocade sport spoiler from the scrapyard.


i then painted cleaned and potected all four arches but only have one picture.


i painted my rear arch trim, bootlock and also spoiler, but after a while i wanted a better finish and colour match so they went off the the bodyshop.




i then bought a post 97 bumper in green ready for paint and also a drivers wing because mine had it, i also bought some 60mm springs and some tigra alloys.












i then decided to sticker bomb a few things inside as i was becoming bored haha, i also picked up 3 genuine vauxhall mats.. but they are for a vectra but they look okay, just need a passenger one now.

i then started to sticker bomb..





after i realised i wanted coilovers, so i set about buying some for the front aswell as some more rear springs and rear dampers so sits a little lower but still want more, maybe 100mm springs next.


new sport clocks with counter was ordered, still need to swap the mileage over as mine has done 97k and this 110k


my rear arches, bumper and bootlocks went off to the bodyshop..

Thanks mate, yeah the colours grown on me since I had it given me the only thing that bothers me is finding cheap parts in satin red for example a drivers door and wing haha, thanks for the comment pal.
