    Default My Corsa runabout....

    Well here is the reason why not much has happened on my Vectra yet. I got given this Corsa 1.5D Merit for free as payment for an old owed debt lol so just needed to MOT it and get it all legal

    Have been after a cheap lil runabout for a lil while now and as I'll be starting my new job at LMF I wanted something else to rack up the miles to and from Market Harborough so I could do something special with the Vectra.

    This was how the car looked when I got it...











    I spent a little bit of time last weekend making a start on tidying it up as I want it to last for quite a while yet. Got myself a better interior as the front seat was holed, fitted some better plastic trim inside, glovebox etc. Also gave the paintwork its first ever polish lol so managed to get some colour and shine back on the lil gay car



















    Hoping to finish it off with some later model black bumpers and fit some Softstars to it with maybe a lil drop just like my cars to be tidy. And yes I know it has a pink head unit lol it came with the car

    I know its nothing special but thought I'd share

    Looking much better now.

    What products did you use on the exterior trim as it was badly faded before?
