    Orange Corsa B Gsi Rep

    hello to all,
    most of you will already know me, or will know the car once the pictures are posted,
    I was told about this when i stumbled across Vegas on FaceBook

    if you don't know the story behind this, here it is in brief....

    I brought this Corsa a while back before I even past my test,
    It cost all of 300 pounds! scrap i may add though,
    it started off a very faded blue, it polished up quite well, and didn't have that may age mark seen as how old it is,
    before i got fully into the corsa, it had a few 'chavvy' bits, which were soon removed once i started to look around at others,
    then it was changed in one weekend, fully kitted and a set of slabs,
    due to its age it started gaining little marks here and there, dents here and there,
    id seen a few bits i wanted,
    once id had a proper look there were only a few panels not needed painting,
    so i decided it was time for something a bit different... pictures will show all
    then another change in wheels,
    so there wasnt much left to do, only thing that wasnt like new was the old looking engine,
    so it was time for that to come out, and have a nicely painted one,
    and thats about it, 5 years on...

    here are a few pictures






















    that is about all in short

    The amount of detail that has gone into this car is staggering. Bodywork is spot on.

    This corsa is awesome, have you sorted the running issues it had when the engine was fitted?

    Yes danny I fixed that, it was the 4 branch, bin ok since just had the odd little problem here and there but its 17 years old so its expected ,

    What do you mean by mold? Are you on about the archs and fenders?

    the archs just have a neat bead of sealer around them, as that will still flex if needed where as filler would just split, took me years to find ways of doing things like that, now everyones i do like it
