heya all, i purchased this little beast a while bk, and it was jsut a first car thing, and i hated it, but now i luv it, and am glad its 5 door cos i find 3 door corsa's way too common, i hope to be going smooth style but having my own little touches througout the car.

here we have a 1995 1.2 5 door Corsa merit in atlantis blue.

since owning the car till now i have done the following:
sport seats front and back
M3 mirrors
door cards trimmed in black suede
vectra interior chrome handles
new headunit
sparco pedal set
momo gear knob
tints
colour coded lexus lights ( will be changing bk to standard soon)
removed rear wiper
colour coded boot handle
interior plastics painted gloss black
front door speakers uprated
custom painted rocker cover
chrome bonnet lifters
open cone air filter
clear focus side repeaters
black caps (rare) in engine bay instead of yellow ones
chrome positive battery terminal
blue LED interior courtesy light
additional interior lights with multi function
uprated tweeters put into handle moulds
sound deadening
corsa sport bumpers purchased n being modified as we speak

with all the original sound deadening in teh boot i could see spots of rust n the more of the sound deadening i took off the more i found, jsut wanted to tidy it up n stop the rust, was minimal rust to be honest but i still had to find out how water was getting into my boot to start teh rust ( bad fitting light)

before ( bit hard to see wot i could but ahwell)

nice car

if your putting euro wheels on i would maybe consider lowering it some more like say 50mm if ya not too keen on a huge drop. theres plenty of euro wheels too choose from as i have just decided which ones im gettin.

but you have made me decide to take my bumpstrips off tomorrow. looks ace.

those mirrors are nice too :thumbs_up:

yeh the mirros took about 6 months to find, theyre worth easy 100 quid second hand due to their rarity n i got em for 40 quid posted, jsut retrimmed door cards, a pillars and the panel above the glove box in black suede, looks classy
