  • [Corsa B 1993-2000] Satin red daily

    Hi guys thought I'd share my latest corsa, something I didn't plan on buying but got offered it cheap and local, so what did I get

    Satin red 1.2 16v w reg 126k on the clock envoy poverty spec model here is the pics I got sent











    Quite happy how it turned out but it drove ****, wheel bearings on rear were shot and suspension wasn't any good too stiff and bouncy. So I switched to so some spax rsx front coilovers and fk short shocks and springs on rear

    So got wheelbearings did but come across some rot so had to get the welder out









    Welded and sealed up





    Still got boot floor to weld then i can get it all undersealed for winter so while I had it sitting I got front coilovers changed over after doing the rear end and dug out some bumpers to get painted



    Ajusted and wound down



    Bumper painted and gsi splitter added



    And on



    Rear too



    Got it back out to play and it felt a lot better to drive



    Got a text from a local lad asking if I wanted polybushed bottom arms and front arb so I said yeah picked them up and ordered 2 for the front tie bars and 2 for the axle





    So the plan is to attach underneath clean and paint everything weld up any rust and underseal the floor before winter sets in, up next is the brakes but I'm enjoying being back on the road for once albeit it a bit under powered haha

    Another update, went to a cruise last Friday and bumped into another b, on the way home I heard a noise coming from the rear drum, turns out the shoes have off or something tbh I haven't got round to looking yet...



    So decided to crack on and redo the whole braking system and fit my polybushs and on Sunday night I ordered new shoes fitting kit and wheel cylinders and braided brake lines

    Also made a start cleaning up the tie bars bottom arms etc









    Quick lick of paint and it looked like this



    So after that I made a start on the tie bar brackets to get them polybushed



    Only realised the inner ring of metal needs to come out so that's next to do unfortunately I've ordered the wrong bush as they don't fit. Found the late type ones online I need though so it's kinda put a stop to progress.

    The rear end kit has arrived aswell so realistically I need to order new rear suspension and that's the whole underside nice and new.



    Hopefully get more progress at weekend

          That's quite an improvement! When I saw the first pics I thought those were as it stands now

                            Looks great! Not many about anymore. Over last 2/3 years numbers have reduced drastically
