  • [Corsa C 2000-2006] My '02 Corsa Life

    So I disappeared for a while to the blue oval dark side but due to recent ill health I've had to give up work.

    This led me to downsizing to this wee Corsa Life 1.0 12v

    First change was a necessary one as the seller had lost the wheel nut key, meaning I had to cut the old wheels off.

    I replaced them with a set of 16" Softstars

    The windscreen needed replaced as well due to a bird committing suicide on it

    And tinted the foglights to match/blend into the bumper.

    I've also fitted a full set of genuine Vauxhall mudflaps:

    Now, a few of you may think, why bother it's only a 1.0, but it was bought to allow me cheap running costs and to allow me to still have an interest and something to tinker with so that I don't completely loose my mind whilst not being able to work.

    So there you have it, that's it for a little while.

    I like it. Looks really smart on those wheels.

          I've added a camo effect to the roof in an attempt to hide the bad paint job:


          Not completely sold on it myself, idea seemed better in my head lol

          My wife hates it

            I think the roof doesn't look too bad, a better design would be spot on imo but still looks good as is

            What other plans do you have


            • #7
              Thanks bud. I dunno, plans are fairly fluid and changing depend on what I spot on eBay lol!

              I'm waiting delivery of a Stienmetz grill for it at the moment.

                roof is different i like it plus as you say hides a bad paint job my roof aint great either neither is the actual bodywork paint was resprayed a very close match to arden blue and is chipping from everywhere around windows and they were that lazy they never bothered to paint inside door shuts so its actual colour polar sea blue can be seen
