    150k miles. needed cat, Distributor, Rear brake pipes, 2 front tyres and LF wheel bearing along with tracking. Probably more than she was worth. God bless.

    Mate is bringing me the wheels back, and may have a buyer for the wheels though, so some good out of it.

    Just a couple of fare well pics and thanks for the good tmes.

    Most reliable car i ever owned.

    Time to officially park the new motor in the driveway.

    Went for my 6th Opel/Vauxhall. 03 Pre Face GTS.

    Got her at a good price, but needed some TLC.

    So far 2 rear shocks + Upper Controll Arm.
    fitted front spring clips and 2 new front strut bearings( big Difference )
    HID's fitted last week just after the car park pics. Love them.
    Mad to do the alt rear light mod, but just cant get the pins out of the old plug.

    Next up is tinted windows, around a 40-50, & just have to get me snow flakes at some stage...

    Heres a few pics. No really nice ones yet, as she needs a good clean and buff.

    cheers lads.

    looking forward to putting a bit of cash into it. Cant wait for a bit of decent weather to get good coat of polish and wax.

    May need new set of headlamps. Seems to be some sort of a scum line near upper outside of them. Would that buff out?(maybe not for this section).

    Thanks anyway.

    must get a few pics of the hid's in action, looks way better than before.

    Yeah.

    I also have a Wee corsa C too. Black one.

    Love it. Great Handling. Very grippy on the 15's. Mrs drives it though and she wont let me tinker with it that much.
