  • [Corsa B] corsa b 96 white project

    copied over from ac

    well heres the begining i bought the car primarily as a runabout for work and through the winter months to save my vectras everyday use as that is my show car but not to fiddle with the corsa isnt in my nature

    as i bought it







    so basic i didnt even have a clock so a trip to the scrappy was in order armed with a shopping list



    so i came away with tigra scuttle trim and oddments tray corsa b door mouldings,rear lights,rear spoiler,facelifted front and rear bumpers,mfd display,headlight switch,front fog switch,temp sensor and mudflaps for the bargain of 50

    facelifted bumper and temp sender fitted and a dent free wing

    and astra mk4 side repeaters

    and rear spoiler and ***** lights (dont worry im not mental they are not staying)

    omega interior light

    and tigra scuttle panel


    another trip to the breakers so another update the vile interior was on the hit list this time
    this was just hideous


    so i roped in a mate and after we ripped this one out in an hour


    we started on ripping mine out (outside the scrappy) and refitting the new one in


    while it was out fitted boot light and courtesy switch front door speakers replaced and tweeters plumbed in

    got a couple of bits painted today



    few more bits done
    1.2 8v cable clocks in and working

    spoiler painted about an hour ago and refitted



    another job done and decision made colour code the lot



    one last trip to the breakers today
    set of arch mouldings
    pair of door handles
    steering wheel
    got a few bits on and sorted




    just need the rest of the bits painting up and to machine polish the car to bring it back to white again

    couple more bits painted



    just need the rear bumper done now and a warm (ish) day to fit them

    well today was a bonus i got the bumper done so thats everything painted just need a day of sorting


    well i got the rear arches and mudflaps on before i nearly died of hypothermia in my lunch break. just got fronts and door handles to do this weekend


    the search for alloys continues ...

                    Unsure on the chrome angels, I keep looking at them for mine but just can't help but think black will look better? Photo from further back?

                    Rest of the car is looking good though
