    5 Door GLS soon to be X16XE

    hi all, iv just been and bought a 1999 corsa 1.2 16v 5 door gls
    (its my first corsa more door )
    she looks a tad tatty at the minute nut nothing to major on the pluss
    side its like new underneath
    it needs the handbrake adjusting and the gear selector sorting out









    first on the list is a bloody good clean inside and out
    then ill sort the rust spots on the boddy and fix the bumper

    mods to follow

    de-badged grill
    paint the black plastics silver
    aero wiper blades (done front)
    quick shift gear selector (done)
    depo headlights
    xenon lights (done)
    spot lights
    smokes repeaters
    smoked rear lights
    dial face and green dash lights (lights done with red needles)
    vectra or astra steering wheel
    bad boy bonnet
    vectra b side-skirts
    lowered 60mm on springs and shocks
    nice exhaust
    15" alloy wheels (possibly sxi corsa c)
    paint alloys a bright colour (not decided on the colour yet)

    possibly a bigger engine (have it)

    and possibly more as i go



    fitted some aero wiper blades
    fitted xenon conversion (dropped a bulb and broke it)
    ordered some clocks
    ordered new 10000k bulbs
    and got this \/ \/ \/



    this is the old broken bush (very floppy gears) i can move it with 1 finger


    this is the new second hand shifter 5 :shock: and the new quick shift selector 8)

    swapped the bushes over and 10 mins later i have a new quick shift gear selector with good bushes :


    its awesome it almost as if the car is faster lol


    i had a gander in the tutorials and found something interesting so i had a pop at it lol


    not finished yet but you get the idea lol

    and im on wrapping my interior parts in 3D carbon fibre


    picked up a downer car tonight (1.6 16v tigra), for the engine and wheels and probably more







    well i got the blue beastie's front end half stripped i think the front seats and some trim are coming off tomorrow and get the engine ready to lift out






    put the tigra skuttle and wiper arms on today, looks a lot cleaner now, well it will when i wash it haha

    also got the front seats in

    got rid of the tigra shell and bought myself a 4 branch manifold i think my itchy fingers wont wait till this weekend to put the 16-16 in haha



    ​what do you think so far ?

    Quick shifts are awesome. Pain in the arse to fit though. I let mine go to scrap.

    Looks like he's been busy sanding it back, I'm assuming to get rid of rust, then primed it ready for spraying.
