Multiple projects by Johnny

Post by johnny » Tue Jun 04, 2013 11:53 pm

Thought its about time i did a project thread

Bought the car about 6 months ago after i decided my black corsa will be a rally car

So i bought it like this
Image

And first thing that was done was got rid of the horrid alloys for these
Image

Then decided to do this
Image
Image
Drums calipers and rocker painted yellow

Smoked depos where next
Image

Then decided i wanted the fans white so off came the fans for the fox crap alloys and a sun strip and irmersher sticker
Image

Hids are next so will update when there wired up :-)

Any comments good or bad welcome
If it doesn't fit,
force it,
If it breaks,
It needed replacing anyway :thumbs:

Cherry bomb sounds nice but they take a while to break in so should sound better in a couple weeks :grin:

Yellow stripe was on when i bought it and just never took it off lol have to say though it looks alot better in person
