Hello everyone

I would like to present my Corsa C 1.8 2001 when I bought it has 90k km on the clock . Anyways no pics of the day I bought it I just forget to make it .

This is before i start










the previous owner didn't paint the car well so I decided to change it . I start tear down the whole car .When i found a small rust spot i began to clean but The threshold was so eaten away by rust that could detach pieces by pieces




I bought the onther one and i send car to bodyshop the fix the rust and paint the whole car



They change whole side cladding because somebody use the filler to fix the dent




And they sanded paint to bare metal and remove the dents because i don't want the a tonne of the filler on the car

Before I choose color of the paint I decided to do something different with my car i modeled on the idea of ​​Inez Hage from Germany



After few weeks car was ready to paint









it would be enough today, more photos i will paste tomorrow . Sory for the English if there are any grammatical mistakes in advance i say sorry and please tell me what do you think about the my project , comments and suggestion are welcome .

cheers

thanks for the positive comments :) So in the meantime, when the car was painted . I changed the color of the upholstery on black and leather and i buy a smoothed boot







The new color for the car I chose the black pearl from audi with the extra of red and gold pearl on the base color car Spraying put 4 layers of clearcoat with increased resistance .








When I picked up the car from the bodyshop i pulled out everything from the car and i painted floor in matt black

Certain things are not done in the right order. Floor should of been taken care of first.

If anything electrical was left during sandblasting ... I do not see it very well. But bmw lights on corsa? Not for me.
