I also have worth a list of things to buy in the next few weeks need to get it though a test

      Corsa update
      Plans always change I ordered 60mm lowering spring instead of 40mm there where the same price so I said hell why not and the Wind deflectors I ordered aren't available any more they offered me other brand which I have used and hate so I said no.

      Well another update there would be pictures but the camera cable as gone walk about again so far I am waiting for parts to come in which should be here next week so I did other job.
      I took all the plastic trim out of the boot on the driver side to fix the missing thing for the shock to hold the boot open only to discover you can't get behind the panel pictures will make it clearer so I had a look in my odd bits boxes and found a set old Nissan Micra boot shocks and made them fit only got to bolt it down.
      We all need a radio well mine is going to be fun all the wires where cut and are very hard to get at so I will make a new radio loom over the next few days and tape the old one up.

      In other news I will be killing my cat he broke the grill which was just holding on by one plastic clip so this mean time to get a new one with out the badge

        Cool little opel! My uncle had a Opel Kadett back in the 90's, I think it was like an 86'' or something. It really started my love of cars.

        I'd love to see that Opel slammed, I think it would look epic on some wide RS's

          Slamming won't happen on my roads but a 60mm drop all round and the alloys of my old starlet in black of coarse should give the slammed look

                  Well the Corsa is now insured and booked for its NCT on the 2nd of Feb

                  What as happened to the car well New disks and pads track rod ends gone into the front cleaned it washed it and then drove 400 miles in it to and from my dads house nibble little car to me remember I drove a 3ton van before not the best handling but I think the lack of tread on the wheels may be the problem there not going to put on the Chevette wheels till the the tracking is done as it is not right yet and I'm still waiting for parts for the suspension which should be here in the morning.

                  So this weekend going to England to my sisters place which is in Southend-on-Sea England and Google Maps say its 856km one way and should take me 11 hours we will see So if any one see a Irish reg black Corsa at the side of the road say HI

                    Update on Corsa
                    First this the corsa came with no rev clock and no working clock so I picked up this clock

                    Which I didn't like the black dial face so I order this

                    On the clock

                    And for some odd reason none in the car

                    Now the fun bit my new shocks and spring came in a big GLS van this morning he got lost finding me but that always happing so I went a head and took out the old shocks and spring out and set about bring this car nearer to mother earth

                    First I did the back only to find my spring claps didn't fit so I jacked the car up then hopped into it and removed the top shock bolt and let the stock spring fly and fly they

                    Before I know the plastic arch is looking crap but soon I will sort it

                    During no rot or rust

                    After that looks better

                    The front

                    Before

                    During not new disk and pads and track rod end see all new stuff in one picture I spoil you all

                    Some camber bolts to help with the wheels I plan to run

                    After with the wheel I will be using I don't think my shoe will fit in there dose rub a bit ok a lot with this wheels but its only the plastic arch

                    And to top it all of I had my boss watching me the Cat Mr. Squeezy and no he still hasn't answer me yet
