Ill be posting more images as i go along, in mind im thinking crystal clear side repeaters, the current alloys painted white, clear rear lights or lexus lights,gsi spoiler,bee sting aerial, not sure a gsi bodykit or go full combat bodykit, Performance exhaust not sure what brand or size. Then maybe ill get a ferrari haha
Any suggestions please feel free to post.

If i was you id lower it first, i kept wasting my money on little things and putting it off, but i definatly think you should do that first. Sucks for insurance if your first time driver though.

Btw your wheels look like Tigra alloys which is the same as i have! So if your wondering what they look like white, check my project thread as mine are white hehe.

plans sound spot on, i'd have to say get a jap style/ or combat bodykit rather than gsi tbh.

Well as you can see its not pink haha, still got good colour, although it is v reg and was garaged all its life until now.

Well looking at me budget thinking a mr2 ferrari replica gona have to do.

Dont wanna sound too much of a noob but what jap style kits look like??
Any ideas where to get decent kits that fit properly??

Osajka boy wheels look sound think spraying them white will be spot on. Ur pics look pretty good. Looked like your doing quite abit to it.

K&n will make it loose loads of power and drink petrol... totally pointless, and if I was you I would stay away from bodykits they look sh1t to be honest other then that it looks clean.

Crana what have you done to your Corsa, you got any pics??

TBH i was suprised at the sound of it, for a 1.0 i was impressed with the sound of it, also the throttle response is much better and feels like theres more power.

Whats your views on why it looses power?? also i have noticed a slight increase in fuel consumption.

Thanks bud, looks good, looks as if thats for the full bodykit, ive sent seller msg, if that full kit it a bargain.
yeah its definately a bargain, it says its a full kit in the description so i shouldn't see why it won't be the full kit. althought with it being about £100 cheaper than the average price of body kits for corsas, id check it will definately fit and thats its not made out of paper. :laugh:

Couldnt wait till 2moz so heres my stock mirror all keyed and primered!!

http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/hh125/marcrebecca/STA76905.jpg

And this is one mirror almost finished, has 2 coats of flame red, possibly gona do 4 coats

http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/hh125/marcrebecca/STA76906.jpg

With the veihicle not been a metallic should i use clear laquer to finish off???
Also the laquer will leave a glossy finish so rest of car will stand out despite the paintwork on car being mint condition.
Suggestions if laquer them or not?
sorry pic looks alil orange but they are flame red.

Oops forgot i needed car today so ive had to put mirrors back on car, they had 2 coats of paint, and was left to dry all night so they should be ok until later today when i finish them off.

Here what they look like so far.

Quite impressed with my first spray job, consider doing stock bumbers until i get some.
Also would like to colour code the boot handle, any idea how to remove it??
