I only bought the corsa as a replacement for my MK3 Astra , who had been written off in an accident a couple of month ago.
Did not like the Corsa at all in the beginning.. but did not fancy walking to work at 5am in the morning.
To make a long story short, I am growing kinda fond of her now. :eek:

This is what she looked like on the nioght I got her:


parked next to me ex car


The first changes were the wheeltrims, as alloys are out of the question from a financial point a view at the moment.
Black side repeaters, Vaux badges off, front and rear replaced with the Opel badges. Can of back to black on bumpers etc. ( going to paint the black in time to come)









At the moment she looks like a spotty dog, started the good old rust removal. Looks like either I need to rebuild or get a new rear wing. :mad:

Where things go from here have to be seen, just started a new job with more cash .. so that extra money will go mostly on the car. ;)

Thanks, the colour , now i have got an idea what to do with the car i kinda like it but when I first went to see her I was like :laugh: :eek:
I suppose loosing me Astra only a couple of days before did not help matters.

Ok.. I am sadly no longer a Corsa owner ..at least for the time being. :mad:

On the 17th of November , Jellybean had to windows smashed in. Did replace them.
On the 17th of December, I parked her up outside me flat at 5.45pm and when i looked out the window at 9.10pm , she was gone.
Got found a day later in Rotherham ( about an hour from here), with gearbox out, propshaft out, rear lights painted green and front end damage.
So it sadly is a write off. :mad: :mad:

As i needed a car asap to get me to work and back and money was next to nothing .. I will have to put up with a Mazda 121 for the next year. :rolleyes:

I am very sorry to hear that, mate.

Only a real shame ppl that do these things get rarly cought. :mad:

The thing that gets me the most was, I just put a new CD unit in there, present from my family in germany. Who I hardly ever see. :(
some kids put my windscreen thru in early hours of the mornin and pissed on my bonnet. i heard them so me and my went out and chased them, i hit one of them and accidently knocked him out lol.

saw him again a week later and did it again, and then told his parents hed be in hospital within a day if they didnt pay for the damage sorting........
needless to say his mum knocked on my door with 400pound cash later that evening haha
