So i went and collected it today - was a fun drive, LHD takes some getting used to

Not many pics as its started to spit on so banged it in the garage with the spares



I got all the chrome trim with it, and a set of rostyle wheels, and a serial number matched tow bar... ( im quite tempted to adapt this to make it removable but we will see)

Anywho so the car from what i can tell needs the rear end re painting and blended into one door and the other side to the front wing... Its solid though hes did a cracking job and its a pleasure to drive

I have the build photos that i will upload some of when i get time too

Ive ordered a few bits, such as a mk 1 golf chin spoiler to try and make one of these



Notice the wheels also, how they sit they are 15x8j and et28

I have ordered these in et25 15x8 and plan to run some stretch on them, can hopefully get it down lower and the tyres tucked away - dont ideally want to arch roll but it could give about 20mm




Thoughts as always

Those alloys are nice, but as you said, it needs to be low to pull them off imo.

Usually do but I haven't got a car this time. Used to take the corsa as it was a timeless classic.

Looks really cool but isn't it boring being only 1.2? The Corsa is bad enough being a 1.6


Wanted
