Nice project. Coming on nicely

Softstars or alessios will look nice. I do prefer the alessios though.

Tiger seal will work fine as mentioned above. No need for drilling holes anywhere. Should look cool when it's fitted.

I'd re-wiper it if i were you. That rust looks awful.

Car looks good as a whole though, definitely going to right way and not over-doing it.

I'd have personally got the slatted debadged grille as it matches the lower one.

Yeah the rust is pretty bad, not too keen on re-wipering it though I want to at some point get the wiper whole smoothed off.

I'm not 100% on the current grille either, I had a slatted one before on my old corsa and it was a shit fit I think I may get a opel grille when I can afford to opelise the rest of the car.

I didn't even have that plastic thing you've got on the boot in the last pic


I'll try that then, wasn't too keen drilling holes in the boot

I bought a spoiler before and it didn't have the backing plate but this on has like a cut out for the backing plate in the middle of spoiler so I think It would look weird not having it

Some of you have probably already seen from my instagram, but got the spoiler on today

Ended up drilling and glueing it on - just in case

I did put primer over the holes after.

Used a strap to keep it down while the glue dries

Good progress mate

Im not a fan of the humugous font on the rear plate though, looks really dated IMO

looking forward to watching the rest of the progress though

Thanks

I don't mind the font but don't like the plates because of the quality of them (bad) Wil replace them at some point
