Well here are the first shots of my corsa about a year ago after I removed the ripspeed alloys and 3d lexarse lights (but to my shame put on standard ones)...Ecka also put in the lowering springs from the old corsa and added a laguna splitter...







Some pics of the corsa more recently after changing the wheels to white, standard side repeaters and sri strips...















We then decided to fit the gsi kit we bought for a bargain price...







Ecka bought me a set of bucket seats and sparco harnesses to complete the interior look ;)



Well here are the pics of the kit once painted...going to keep the sri badges so it is still a sleeper, think it looks good anyway :lol:

Then it was time to start the GSI conversion...

Cheeze doing the wiring for us...



Here are the progress pics of the engine conversion…





The GSI Engine on Ecka's work truck…



All that's left on the GSI...



1.2 Out…



The Corsa with No engine…





The start of the GSI conversion…





All bolted in…







And the most recent pics of the corsa painted and gsi'd!

















Some pics courtesy of Turbopower of modify-scotland...

The opel badge is now a vauxhall badge, the opel one flew off a few nights ago while Ecka was returning from doing the nova...








Hope you like, comments welcome!

The bad news however is someone hit the drivers side in road rage at a roundabout, so there is a fair bash on her, as well as that someone smashed the rear 1.4 window at the weekend so nt having much luck!! Hoping to keep her for a good while yet and get another shell and transfer as much as I can onto the car from this corsa :D

I can't help but think the back end of all corsa's needs lowered about 10mm more than the fronts, 40mm front -> 50mm rears... must just be me :)

Looks well though! I have a soft spot for GSi's ;)

I know what you mean there, think it would look a bit odd from the side though.

Anyway nice car, I would just take the SRi bumpstrips and badges off, but that is personal opinion.

Lol thanks for all the comments folks :D

And they are staying lol they kind of cover the dent on the side a bit more! lol

There is a slight gap under the light but this is as my boyfriend did all the kit himself and it was bought as accident damaged for a VERY cheap price, so was damaged there, he did his best to cover the cracks etc but has come out well for the price I paid! :D:D
