PSG2 wide kit, same as the last time it was out and about. It looks no different to before other than the intercooler now sitting straight and the front bumper mesh trimmed a little to allow for the re-positioned boost pipe. Nothing anyone would notice! Drove it again this morning, still just round and round a car park. Not been out on the open road with it yet as I've got to get the tracking seen to first, a proper air filter on it and the brakes checked over.

Do all Corsa b's have a really soft brake pedal? After a decade of not using it the stopping leaves much to be desired compared to all the modern cars I've been driving!!!

I remember it well, always liked the psg kit and it looked great in white. You any pics of how it is now even though it's same car?

I'd get the brake fluid changed seen as it's been sat for so long but don't expect it to perform anything like modern cars.

The brakes have been bled through twice by a techie who really knows what he's doing so guess it's the way it is. No updated pics, just a lil' video on my facebook last night

Collected the Puma from Puma Bits. Next job is to sort out body work.

All my cars need body work, had poor jobs done in the past which is why I have just left them.

Is this a track prepped puma puggy? If so what's been done to it? Genuinely interested by the way because I've always known you to have completely standard hatchbacks so good to see you modifying one

been busy the past few days...

engine out the 50k "distraction project"
and, no pic, but also acquired full facelift sport interior, carpet, plastics, front seats, door cards, even whipped the doors off for the lecky window looms and motors....
there was a 1990's bodykitted special corsa left in an old abandoned pub down the road, battered up a bit... spoke to the new owner of the property and had his permission to help myself cos it was going to scrap anyway, had too dodge the odd needle but i love free stuff. seats have no rips in ether




and also been cracking on a bit more with the blue x30xe drag corsa, looms all tessa taped up (again) gearbox had a quick lick of paint etc...

Checked the hub nut torque on the rear hubs today to make sure it was in spec since changing the rear discs / bearings. And reglued the headlining back up in the T4 Transporter that was starting to peel near the windscreen.

So the old bus is now taxed, MOt'd and insured. Breakdown cover in place. It's the laborious task of running it in and resisting temptation from the right foot for while.

It got rained on (HEAVILY!) yesterday which made me nervous as it doesn't get wet, it's been inside for a decade! So dried it off before taking it home last night and it was looking nice and clean again.

Got a charging issue, currently going up to 16v so a new alternator is probably on the horizon and found a drop of oil on the garage floor this morning. I really want to nail the throttle and remind myself what it does but have gotta stay sensible for a while yet!
