Hi, iv been on this forum a wile but haven't really posted much so thought it would be best to start a project thread.
I'v had the car a few months now and its really growing on me, i really didn't like it when I 1st got it though. Bought it because it was cheap and reliable.

When I first got it.

Some alloys I borrowed off a mate and also stripped out interior and put buckets in.



Didn't like them wheels so picked up a set of Corsa C SXI wheels with good pirelli tyres for £50


De-wipered and ducati 748 can which soon got changed


Lowered and espace splitter


Made myself a badboy bonnet and [email protected] canned it black


Excuse the messy welding lol haven't welded for ages >_<
Found a golf ball sized hole in the bonnet so patched that.

Brows welded on and filled


Painted



Sprayed the SXI wheels Black and brakes illuminous yellow.





I bought some 13x8 split rim revolutions for my classic mini project and tried them on the corsa, im buying a euro arch kit and just need some spiggot rings so i can fit these properly.



(need a new rear bumper)


Thats it for now.. all comments welcome :)

Cheers, Robbie

yeah i agree i think they bumpers would look good matching the bonnet because if you colour coded the bumpers the bonnet would look like you just got one from the scrappy in that colour and hadnt sprayed it if you know what i mean
