....corsa club project!....*UPDATE* 15/11/08

well...

i brought my first corsa last tuesday, standard silver 1.0 club!! (last car was a mk4 escort 1.6 cvh turbo sleeper, so it felt like a rocket compared to the 1.0 12v hehe, but oh well aleast im gettin 100miles to a 10a.

well anyways heres a few pics of it when i brought it..





was just up loading the pics that i have took today, but camera battery has just bloody gone!! :mad:

never mine, il charge it now and post them up asap.

but since last tuesday ive debadged it (apart from the "vauxhall" badge on the back, took out the grill (as it looks a tad better) but will be getting a debadged one very soon, windows tinted 17% all round so quite dark, and fitted rxs spax coilovers (60mm rear around 70mm on fronts, max is 80mm)
also added a nurburgring sticker on the back hehe! :cool:

looking for some alloys as now its just slammed on steelys lol, and need a silver wrap around spoiler (gsi)

:thumbs_up:

not colour coding now, just going to get the black bits looking veryy black and shiny with loads of show polish and black to black..

get some nice alloys, softstars or jsut some astra fanblades or cav slabs..

gsi spoiler..

debadged grill

backbox (for the time beeing)

thats about it to be honest, but the plans are similar to my old mk4 escort project, started life as a 1.3 mk4 bonus, and ended up as a euro'd sleeper with a 1.6cvh turbo and 151bhp!! think i will LET it after a while...just going to see how things go with it, and if i still like it in months to come (get bord of cars fast)

pics will be posted tonight!

tbh i prefer these type bumpers to full colour coded ones, had them on my corsa and just personal taste really. i think they just set it off nicely. but hey thats just my opinion.

nice car and plans though :thumbs_up:

i added the sticker as it looked bare on the back so needed a sticker, and nurburgring sticker just looks cool, but people dont know its a 1.0 when its standing still, plus it doesnt matter if it is a 1.0, with the spax coilovers i have, and decent tyres fully polybushed and strut braces which i will have it will go round the corner like its on rails!! it pretty much does now on shi*ty standard tyres!! and its only got the coilovers fitted!

will try and upload pics now :)

sorry for the pic quality, digi cam is playing up (probly just on the wrong setting)

opinions please!?!?! :) (taking in mind ive only had it just over a week) :)

little update...

picked my 90mm rear springs up friday..

also got me a 22mm gromit to blank the rear wiper off..

few things should arrive 2moro such as:

*xenon 6000k bulb kit (headlight and side lights)

*6x4 backbox

and my alloys should be here on tuesday (astra gsi)

when i fit everything im also going to paint the rear drums and front calipers with black hammerite and going to underseal the arches

hopefully going to do all the above in one day..

will look something similar to this..

nothing arrived today which im gutted about :(

but atleast everthink will come 2moro (fingers crossed)

fitted my 90mm rear springs today, but to be honest they dont look that much lower than the spax 60mms i took off...they are brand new so spose they will drop a tad lower once worn in..

also took my rear wiper off and put a 22mm gromit in

as ive said hoping my stuff will come 2moro..

6x4 backbox
xenon bulb kit
astra fanblades

and il get round to buying me a debadged grill and smoked side reps later on in the week :)

xenon bulbs have come today..

so has my astra fanblades :D put them on just but little problems..

3 tyres are for one direction and one for the other so just going to take it to have the tyre swapped round so all the tread is going in the same direction..

one tyre was flat so just had to get that pumped up..

but the main concern is that the front inner tyre is catching on the coilovers :( so ive got to pop somewhere later and get me some wheel spacers, which is more money being spent but having the front lowerd -70mm is staying.. :D

will sort some pics out later, as il give it a good clean once the alloys are all sorted and lights are fitted..

just waiting on the backbox now, should have come today but its got to be hear 2moro for defo if it doesnt come later on...
