    Maybe some inspiration is required. To go down the "gentleman drifter" route, I think it needs to be a nice colour with a decent drop and not just some badly painted standard wheels. Also for the love of god put the bumper back on and maybe just cut it for the exhaust exits. It just looks like a banger racer from a scrapheap now.

    The above is obviously a PS but does show that they have potential to look alright.

    If i could afford new wheels i would get some so maybe in the future, bumper is cut so cant go back and its not a gentleman drifter anymore. I will get some coilovers for it at some point too but the price is high for then so they will have to wait too.

    Only just seen this. I was thinking of getting one of these to drift. Not doing any of this tho. Welder, lower, seat, skid.

    Slightly confused why you wrecked a perfectly good car for no performance (or any other?!) reason, rather than just welding the diff, fitting a drivers bucket seat, and getting out there a year ago.

    PS- Recognise the pics, I used to live around the corner until a year ago.

    To be honest just been enjoying working on it, just need the diff welded and then i will be going up to pod. The car was cheap so i didint mind stripping it and respraying, the paint work was never that great and the wheels were scuffed aswell.

    What's the deal with manual conversions? A manual R would be incredible.

    Well this just looks like something a 17 year old would do to their first Corsa, what a heap.

    well haven't updated this thread in a while, so I have finally gotten around to doing more work on the car.
    I have recently gotten a new diff and had it welded up thanks to Tom Simpson
    17218740_10154642247655892_2116334647020094183_o. 17349589_10154645942350892_986357847692627601_o.

    Also got a new clutch kit and lightened flywheel from TTV racing
    17311293_10154649472410892_6174882931709333186_o.

    Got some new wheels from driftwork.
    17191713_10154629235100892_8077902540100413301_o.

    Still got the stupid exhaust that you all love.
    16462988_10154505826930892_8499517284612075960_o.
    got coilovers on order at the moment so i can sort out the suspension, already fitted springs but they are to soft.

    Bit of an update.
    Now has new wheels fitted and coilovers.
    Taken it for a track day at castle combe with the jaguar club which was a lot of fun.
    Still looks great with its amazing pain and daft exhaust.


    Hoping to take it to a few more track days and also Santapod this year
