Hi guys, just thought I would post my project on here :)

atm its a standard 1.4 8v 5 door corsa b but i plan to turn it into a bit of a stealth beast!

so the plans are:
-vinyl wrapped body in matt black (already have)
-gloss black arches and bumper trim (in progress)
-de-badged and de-bumpstripped
-black 15" HRS Hijoin wheels with red lip
-black angel eyes
-red brake calipers
-oem+ style steering wheel (ordered)
-snap on/off boss (ordered)
-coilies
-stainless exhaust
-few other red accents
-then in the future a c20xe :D

here is the car standard:



and here is the progress so far:
spare room converted in a spraying room :D

rear bumper sanded, primed and painted




and same with the rear arches



hopefully lacquering soon then moving onto the front and sorting general rust spots!

cheers and any advise appreciated :thumbs_up:

Plans sound good. Car-park looks familiar too :)
I'd steer away from red callipers and those alloys though, don't think they'd suit it.
I'd recommend Unique Exhausts up on common road for a custom stainless system, very happy with mine.
