So i managed to get my corsa through an mot recently and decided that i need to start re shelling it into a better newer shell. So i picked up this corsa 1.0 12v with 44k miles. It is very clean underneath with slight surface rust which i have had a very good stab about at to make sure it was worth it. THE shell has no sunroof, no electric windows and best of all it already has the electric power steering which i was going to fit to my corsa anyway to get rid of the hydraulic power steering. Anyway here is the shell as it stands though bare in mind the rust is surface and will clean up no problem Wink.

Yeah the white one was bad underneath and it is getting worse, just heaps of benefits putting it into this shell with the lack of sunroof etc. I will be putting my bonnet, tailgate and bumpers on this car so i will either paint the roof white and leave the sides silver or just paint the entire car white haha.

Ak - i intend to if im home for a track night Smile i have not had work for 2 weeks so far just been doing odd jobs till i get my first trip. The reshell is not happening until the winter sets in when i can no longer use it.
