This is my first attempt on a car project corsa 5dr 1.4i LS;
when i first got it minus the window tints.



debadged the back and side trims

New wheels


Sprayed back bumper, back side arches, mirrors, bootlock and taken off back wiper and tinted rear lights and added twin exhaust (Low purring sound, LUSH)



fixing a dent and rust

Fusion stereo with ipod conector looks real good specially at night (photo dosn't give it any justice though)

My Dads car which will be mine and a project to look forward to (Austin 6).

future mods are; lowering 40mm (would it be alright with low profile tyres 195/50/15), 2L redtop, front bumper/arces cc, badboy bonnet, interior cream leather, speakers, dvd player for back passangers, black angel eye lights, new seats. Trying to make it smart, smooth, classy and FAST!!

no I got mine off the internet, when I put mine on, the car was on a 4 poster ramp, when I put the front wheels on I notice they just, only just touched the anti-roll bar, which could fail an m.o.t, however when it was on the ground I had another look and they are fine dot scrub at all.

The wheels don't suit the car at all IMO. Looked better with the original wheels on it. And that defo needs lowering a little bit.

Sorry to be critical but it looks like it's crashed into Halfords and been thrown together.

I'm not having a go I'm just being critical. Well done on what you've done, but it does look like a typical modded 5 door. I'm sure you've got a lot more work to do on it.

I.e The silver petrol flap makes it look tacky & chavvy.
