    Cool Tomush's Corsa B 1.4 Pickup Project

    Some of you may think this look ridiculous, and to be honest I'm not too sure on the looks either. But it's a project, and its different. So try not to hate on it too much

    But here it is, a 1.4 corsa b pickup (not standard pickup)











    Didn't pay much for it, collecting it this weekend.


    Comes with
    Front Spax RSX Coilovers
    Rear GMAX shocks and springs
    OPD inlet manifold
    Full decat and sportex race tube and an uprated manifold (not sure on the make, he says its a job. Ashley 4-2-1 but will update)
    Powerflow backbox
    Front and rear smoothed bumpers
    Calibra 15'' alloys
    DTM mirrors
    Lexus lights (going straight in the bin)
    Strange spoiler on the top, not sure probably will get rid of it
    The engine has GSi cams and injectors
    Best paint job in the world

    So yeah. This should be an interesting project, and easy on the hate which I am assuming I'll get. If I don't get some kind of hate then well, maybe I was wrong

    Thoughts and opinions always welcome

    Engine bay could do with a detail

    It's different and considering it's sitting looking sorry for itself in long grass it doesn't look like it needs much to be back on the road from the pictures.
    I'd rather this than another 5 door B though

    Yeah it runs though which is a plus!

    I've seen it out of the grass and running and it don't look too bad, but yeah I'll be doing all the detailing eventually. Should be a good project!

    You got what I meant by unique then haha!

    To be honest, I wanted to learn more about cars and that, I wanted a project where I can basically rebuild the whole thing (including the engine) and see how it goes! Should be good

    Short list of plans that I am currently thinking of doing.

    Short term plans:
    Get it running properly (needs new egr valve)
    Take engine out and rebuild it
    Exterior work
    Probably sell calibra alloys and get a different set. Banded steels? Hmmm...


    Long term plans:
    Colour code the whole engine bay
    Cut hole on the back for a window
    Spray whole car a colour, probably just black

    Other suggestions?

    It's good to see something different. Get something different to black for the paint job, make it stand out. Or get it wrapped. I like the idea of mega low, with banded steels though

    What sort of colours would look good on it? Wrapping it sounds like it could be good!

    A lot of of classic American Chevvy Pick ups are Yellows some very strong some very light, not saying you should go yellow though but historically speaking and all

    The guy was telling me it used to be bright orange, like Focus ST orange Not sure if I want anything that bright.

    Maybe some colours along these lines?

    Thanks everyone for liking it

    Just came across it on Google and it reminded me of a Euro Corsa B in the same colour and thought It'd look good!

    Hopefully going to get it tomorrow morning, cant do any work on it just yet as after I've brought it home, got to go and pick up a Classic mini engine for my mates mini! Going to be a busy day of travelling for me!

    Picked it up today, it's just sitting in the garage looking sorry for itself. Got it briefly running, doesn't like to rev though. Only idles! Any ideas?
