right finally got rid of all bump stripes and debadged still tiny bit of glue left.

i still fail at washing it lol

anyway started sanding down dashboard where some super glued plastic bits are left as you can see in the picture. will take time but get there eventually

had a thought, if i want to spray the wheels which color do you think would suit or should i just leave them as it is...



cearso alloys on dark blue body color.

yeah, i'd say keep the led bar strip lights, they look sweet. And if you haven't already decided about the colour of your alloys, i think they look good in silver:thumbs_up:
you should get a new gear stick gaitor, yours look shattered :laugh:

why has noone else commented on this project??:confused:
anyway good work mate, keep it up, its definately one of the best, if not the best 5door corsa i've seen, love the colour and alloys:D

right has been a while since i updated.

firstly while back just before Trax i painted calipers and drums white. as i have no other paint and have just kept them that colour. not sure what colour to do them properly :S

next recently i found my wet and dry paper 800 so started smoothing mfd down. not got a picture but definitely looking better. started on the dash getting slowly there. once thats done be time to get spray paint and spray it.

today got some mudflaps off liam.d again although they didnt quite fit properly had to use like 3 screws. think they were pre 97 which im assuming are different to post 97 bumpers :S so they nearly touch tyres although when i drove along one of the roads here small like long bump that comes quickly when driving at 60 heard it scrap. did say to liam.d look euro style lol. as it did when first put them on

also suggested bright orange wheels for winter? sounds good but wouldnt look right me thinks :shocked:

pictures!







last picture is crappy camera phone :( just at night lot worse. fine in day time as seen by other 2 pictures

hi mate i got a door aswell and im i need of some slamming was just wondering if you had any camber angle problems?
not that i know of lol back end is only lowerd so far only problem ive had is scraping because my tyre profiles are 60 only when its a full car though

tidy car mate, will look sweet when the front is lowered too, look forward to seeing this at pvs
yeah will look good also when get new tyres on the back. and it will hopefully look good by then although probs have all the scratches and crappy body work on it lol

right more progress today and recently

firstly while ago if you read it i had small crash in my estate due to snow and ice :(



so that is still currently like that. only spending money on what i need which is to keep car running servicing etc.

new items i got were new mfd as old one was sanding it down and cba with it and needed to spray it etc. new door cards which the grills haven't been cut out. found a gls in scrapyard thought buy these put them in found out had a problem couldn't wind down drivers window lol but got the side taken off with buttons now just about 3 holes. I may upgrade to electric windows don't know weather to and how hard it is.




then today i went over to Leighton buzzard as this tool kit was like one of last few left last one in Leighton buzzard i got and there was one more in Aylesbury so reserved it and got it today. 123 piece tool kit challenge extreme.

very useful tools also came with right spark plug socket thank goodness for that i can now change spark plugs :D and also allowed me to fix my boot lock now i have a working boot! tool kit cost £25 reduced from £50 bargin and i had a £20 gift voucher!




and as a mini project i have my old head unit sitting in my room which works on pc power supply so i may if ever get round to it use some old mdf i have put it in a box and have it in the garage with these speakers i was given ages ago!




and that is the updates as for now. getting my ALG back pay tomorrow hopefully so that be lots of money too but not so much on car pay back some debt :( more to come soon :) :thumbs_up:
