Ok well this is my 1.0 12v ls Corsa ive had since May 2009.I thought although I have done a fair bit to it I should start a project thread for it now lol so heres what ive done so far :)
Ok this was the only pick I could find of it when I got it completely standard

Then I got some dtm's and some white alloys they are Vauxhall alloys no idea what off though lol!!

Then a mate gave me his old neon so I thought why not lol

Then I lowered it 60 mm and painted the roof rails and front grills white

Then fitted some vented and grooved disks on (had to put new callipers on as well lol)

white grill looks tacky and ruins the look imo, and should of colourcode the interior same colour of red as your car? any pics/video of the headlight strobing? how much that cost/hard to do?

i like the white grill its just deffrent every one de badges a car now thought id try somthing new and i got the strobs from maplins for £15 and easy to do all i did was drill a hole in the light and push the stobes in and run 4 wires into the car for the switches, just rember to have a switch under the bonnet to make it legal !!!

It looks good, fair enough about the grill, but at least you're doing something different! :thumbs_up: I don't like the interior colour coding though, as said, paint it in the colour of your car if you have to do it.

Not too keen on the grill, or the interior. Rest looks good though, did you laquer your bumper tops and arches when you CCed them? Also, your number plate is epic!
