Has it been lowered at the back? Good price, even if it's a little rough around the edges for the mileage and mot and tax.

Clear / smoked side repeaters
Heatgun / blacken the arches and bumpers
Original lights back on the back.
Take off wheel trims and paint the steelies instead.
Some lows

All cheap and cheerfull stuff :D
Debadged grill.

yeah looking in to the grill,but i tryed this heat gun to get the plastics back to black but didnt seem to have much affect so been using back to black spray for now,i liked the colour coding on my last corsa and know this colour wouldnt look good at all.i only had a central locking kit laying about but cant seem to find it

well people time for a small update,as i last said i had some rubbing on back passenger tire even after i got new tires all round 195,45,16,,,,the rubbing was still there so i got an inspection lamp and took a look ,the springs looked fine on both sides so i guessed a shock was maybe needed,i ordered a shock from ebay and when it arrived i started stripping mine down before checking the part,,my handbrake also didnt work on that side so i thought i would get both fixed at same time .

then opened box to find its for a combo van arggghhhhhhh

the accuall brake shoe was siezed took it apart and added some oil its now better

i went the next day and just bought a shock from euro car parts £25 also
was sick of crap stereos i have laying aroung so got one as a gift from ebay just shy of £200

also bought an alarm from ebay £30 with door solinoids





looks ok and does the job

even after i changed the shock last week i was still getting a tiny bit of rubbing more with weight,i went and priced springs at about £30 each and i managed to get a set few days ago from gumtree £40,,corsa b springs lowered 40mm front were already on standard shocks so was a straight swap now no rubbing



before

after
