    Re: The Corsa Project. (**Long Term**)

    *****UPDATE*****

    Well another update

    These came in the post friday thanks to P1CK4D





    So I got the rears fitted friday and the fronts done today

    Rears in:



    and fronts:







    Getting some scrubing on the front arches so going to trim those, and maybe lift the rear up as I like the skirts sitting level but not keen on the arch on the tyre. Maybe I just need to get used to it as from certain angles it looks good

    So before:


    After:

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Gaz coilovers. Good work getting them and that's a very very nice height too. What specs did you go for?

    Very nice and clean too.
    I dare any of you to tell me you wouldn't let this upstanding young citizen slob on your knob like corn on the cob.

    I got the GHA shortened bodies with front 300lb springs, rides really nice so much better than the old springs and shocks!!

    Re: The Corsa Project. (**Long Term**)

    Well today I've joined a few people off CS and a few more off weekend racer at the PPC show at Mallory Park.

    Cracking day as usual! Big thanks to Ian, Willay, Mike and the team that organised and ran it.

    Here's a few photos I got throughout the day.










































    Sorry they aren't really in much order :lol:

    Re: The Corsa Project. (**Long Term**)

    Picked this up last night.


    Got it back and placed it up to the car to see what it looks like.
    Before cleaning it


    Then gave it a polish and wash and placed it up to the car




    I quite like it

    I believe it's a Chris Ashley system not sure how you tell but it's only a month or two old and is still in pretty good condition, just needed a good clean!

    Got it purely because the MOT is the week after PVS and the silencer is now blowing like a boss. Was originally planning to get a full stainless system made but lack of funds at the moment so this will suffice until I get another job/money

    Re: The Corsa Project. (**Long Term**)

    *****UPDATE*****

    Well today I decided to get up early and get the car apart ready to fit the exhaust.

    First off I removed everything that gets in the way.




    Then placed in the backbox to have a peak at it.



    Then Set about welding the manifold as it was blowing slightly by the thermostat (apparently it's a common place to blow) So sorted that and cleaned faces.

    Then we (me and my stepdad) welded a new pipe to mate with the new center section as the old one was welded to the center section last time.

    Sadly didn't get any photos of it but it's nice and neat :thumbs:

    That took most of the day cutting bits and welding and getting it sealed.

    Then I got it all fitted back up





    Unfortunately the tip comes out on the wonk and there's no way of changing the angle as the centre section wouldn't sit right otherwise so will get it rewelded when I get the chance. Will probably when I exchange it for a smaller one.

    Then I started it up and it started blowing at the centre section because I forgot to do the clamp up :facepalm: :lol:

    So left it there as it was getting dark.

    Other than that blow the exhaust sounded much deeper and let off a nice pop, so can only imagine it to bang when it actually get hot :lol:

    So once the blow is sorted it should be almost ready for the MOT.

    Got to fit my new sump baffle plate and get the shortened bolts then it hopefully will be ok

    Re: The Corsa Project. (**Long Term**)

    Well I remember there being a debate on CS of which is faster - an XE corsa or Focus ST. Well last night the XE corsa won

    Wasn't a bad tow car to be honest

    It was a joke mate, I had to pull the ST home, we've had a play and the corsa beats it off the line every time just never has the top end on it

    Re: The Corsa Project. (**Long Term**)

    *****UPDATE*****

    Right got a new sump in the post from 8valve-craig off mig as I've noticed mine as a hairline crack in it. Nothing to major yet so should last me until it arrives

    Also got 2 doors that I'm purchasing off Ian at PVS and some door handles off Shaunmods to get colourcoded if his new ones are a good colour match.

    Started wiring my fogs in last night but had to go out so couldn't finish.

    Got the plugs in place and wiring off the plugs into the cabin.

    Whilst I was inside I remebered I had some wiper and indicator stalks in the shed that I had spare so I went and checked them. They looked a lot less faded than mine so I swapped them over. Also the indicator cancel mechanism had broken on the ones in the car so it will be nice having them cancel themselves again
    so Before:



    and New:



    Still need a clean but I'll do that when I clean the inside out.

    Going to finish the wiring later when my step dad comes home as he's bringing some bits to finish it off for me.

    It's also chucking it down here so I can't be bothered to do anything else at the moment
