Some of you on here may know gregors corsa (escortgti.com) from corsasport. Well he split the car and sold most of the bits. Gregor stays fairly local to me and i quite fancied the shell as it was reasonably priced and looked stunning when it was a complete car, Here is a pic of how it used to look:



Well here's the pics i took when we were loading it onto the truck:







we then realised it wasnt gona go on backwards. So with some blocks of wood it went on fowards





Then we finally got it home:


Hopefully its dry tomorrow and ill throw on the bumpers and headlights etc before the neighbours crack the nut. I have a 1.6 8 valve gsi engine in my garage which i might throw in temporarily. My plans for it are to make it the exact way it was before except with a few differences such as arteb headlights instead of depo's and tints and a extended bonnet. Gona try an get a respray done for pvs:)

I think gregor was sad to see it go but it will be back:)

I'm assuming Gregor gave up on it because of the engine problems? Last I heard from him, he was refitting valves and having a 'mare with his C16XE. The 1.6 8v (C16SE) is a diamond to throw in her, should give you a lot of trouble free motoring and nice bit of welly. Mine runs lovely and aside from my now squealing 'fan'belt has had no problems whatsoever.

I just really hope now mate that you can bring her back to how she was because loads of people loved that car. Even thought of doing mine the same but sprayed her in black again.

aye it was just causing him alot of hastle, and i think he just wanted a change tbh and he worked out that he'd get the most money for the car by splitting it.

Ideally I will want the car to have gsi bumper an skirts for pvs along with a full respray. But if not it will be finished for trax. Ive been told that my local bodyshop will do me a full respray for £300 aslong as the car is already prepped in primer, And kennyvalver from here said he can prep it an primer it. So i think thats a reasonable price.
