Hi everyone new account but not new to the site lost my old login details with my old email,

Next year my beloved first car will be 20 years old and yes iI kept it at the back of my house for the last 10 years lol.
So I've said it going to get the love it deserves and have a full restoration, its been sat under a tree for the best part of 10 years and had both mirrors, the wheels and back box stolen. So this year i set out find a set of the original 3 spoke alloys that came with the car aswel as everything that needs doing I was hoping someone might have a few of the things iI'm in need of so if there's anything on the list anyone can help with that would be very much appreciated.

A little about the car,
Corsa Sri 16v 1.4 (N reg) Black, black & red pokerdot interior
Lightweight cams and pulleys
4 branch manifold,sport decat & sport back box
Gsi front bumper
Gsi sidskirts
Colour coded arches and bumper
Evo rear bumper ( to be reverted back to stock)



1. Buy original 3 spoke alloys
2. Prep & paint GSi side skirts
3. Buy new gear & handbrake gaiters
4. New glovebox (non aircon)
5. Buy stock rear bumper prep & paint
6. Respray arches and GSi front bumper
7. Refurb alloys
8. Fit new oil pump
9. Service (new plugs,oil,filters)
10. Valet interior

Then hopefully

Like the sound of the plans!

Have you checked it for rot? Can't imagine sitting for 10 years outside has done it any favours

Why not just buy another? Unless this is modified its going to be a money Pitt just for sentiment on a standard car

Fair play to you, I'd love an SRi project myself, especially a 16v.

Any pics?

Oh and lol @ someone stealing your back box off it!

Would love an old Sri.

I think I've got some Sri front seats knocking about. At least still got the seat covers think the bottom foams where ruined. I'll have a dog about see what else is with them

Hate the standard plastic bumpers though and the GSI bumper makes it look so much nicer

Best user name ever

Well at very least, most appropriate and on-topic user name considering thread content
