My project taken from anther forum :)

02/7/07

Well as you know i bought this a few months ago :)


I didnt have any plans for it as it was bought just for short term use while the nova was off the road, but as i desided to break the nova :( i desided to keep the corsa :)

Until disaster struck and the engine went bang :mad: , and yes i know it has been on here already with many engines :eek:

So it had now turned into project corsa :D

Plans ar simple and not over the top lol

2.0 xe engine
gsi kit
colour code
And lower the coilovers abit more ;)

Anyway as it was nice at the weekend thought id make a start and remove the old 8v lump :)




Also since it was good weather i though id start to underseal it to :)




Well this is how the car stands now lol




Gona clean the bay up and paint it up before the new engine goes in :)

All i need now is to find a new engine which aint goin well so far :(

03/7/07

so desided to just underseal all up the bulkhead so it cant rot :lol:



And gave the chassis legs and inner wings a freshen up with paint 8)

Nice thread and nice car :) exhaust will look good aslong as you cut a hole out of the bumper and merge it properly... not hang it off the bottom of the car Mcdonalds style.

question... with the multi groove belt do you have clearance against the inner wing? im building one just now and had to change from multi groove to v belt as i had a total lack of clearance, could have done the old nova mod but didnt think it was worth it
