hi guy new here so bare with me

i recintly bought a corsa 1.2 running a 2.0l 8v running around 150 bhp
now this is where it gets funny well sort of any way
i pick up the car from stafford on monday 5 minutes after i got it some dosey women drove into me and messed it up ok not the tidy ist car but had plans any way drove it back 60 miles not fun at all i can tell you , got up to see damage bottom arm bent ball joint bent both struts bent pics to follow any way while fixing said car her insurance company rang she admitted it was her fault and they offered me £1250 compo bonus and i said fiixing it being a mechanic so they agreed to pay me to fix it another £300 on top so shopping time, no not sure but i think chassis leg is bent but not certain so found another corsa 1.2 in green nice for £250 then went shopping on ebay and £500 pound later ordered all the bits i want plus cav slabs so she did me a favor in a sense now i can build my car in a month rather that 12 months bonus any way here some pics of the damage i post more pics up after may keep my car depends if chassis is bent or not if not then ill save money

What's been done to the engine to get it to that power?
The chassis isn't looking great to be honest from the amount of camber on the side that got hit looks a bit more than the other side. Besides, for the money you got paid out i'd just bought a good base car and swap the parts over instead and never worry about it.

Do us a favour please. Use punctuation in your sentences, and have a double check over your spelling. Also, I would appreciate it if you don't tell me you're dyslexic too. Thanks.

That looks like mega bodged/chucked in engine.


Combat look bad however they're fitted IMO. Your car though :)

Lee, go bite me, lol. Anyway, yes it was a bodged in engine. I bought it like that as a project to do up over time, but as you can see, some woman driver crashed into me. I have just got my hands on another car and I'm planning on using that a base car, i.e doing it properly, making sure all the wires are hidden, new brake lines, the lot. Might as well, seen as I got a pay out. Hehe.

So as you can see, there is a lot planned and as I'm a mechanic anyway, it will be done properly this time, nice and neat. I hate a messy engine bay. This is my old build I did.
