hi guys not been on here in a while
anyway decided to get my self a wee corsa to build throughout the cold months for a bit of fun on the 1/4 mile
so what I started with was a stripped out corsa c shell with no engine , loom , interior etc
the reason for buying this shell in particular was that It had already been notched for saab engine and came with mounts custom made for the saab b204 to sit in the bay
I bought the car from my mate stevey Thomson and his son dale
I got a good deal on the car and it also came with s1600 wings I sold them previously.
now the car isn't going to be road worthy
just some fun for crail and santa pod if it runs ok once built
photos be uploaded below

Also got these local
Not sure what to do suspencion wise yet but i cant fit my 10j banded steelies with mickey thomsons on due to my normal shock fouling the tyre
Only way i can see by it is with coilovers
Im not running with an arb so corsa b coilovers are fine
Just need some corsa c topmounts and i can swap them over

Tried my wheels back on today after a wee bit of fidling and i think they should fit
No hub fitted as they are in my work having new bearings and flanges fitted
Anyway need to have a clearout in the unit as theres litteraly stuff all over the place








Last photo is how much the manifold sits above the bonnet
Certainly no were near as high as i thought it would be
