What paint you being using cellulose, waterbased? Have you got overspray on the tyres and all over the glass? Looks an interesting shade of orange and better than the flat white. That front bumper is awful :D Can't enter your poll I have no idea what any of it means :)

I actualy think the front bumpers alr8 :eek: Just far too common.

The rear ones a different story though :yuck:

TBH i dont think its looking too bad so far. Ive seen many worse thats for sure. Stick a set of black wheels on it, slam it, reckon it would look decent.

I really cant believe i'm saying this but i dont actually think that is too bad in orange, front bumper kind of suits the car, back bumper isnt that bad. I wouldnt drive it myself though.
Colour is awesome, where did you spray it? Id love to get into bodywork, if i ever get sacked ive decided thats what i'm going to take up.

Ironically, that shape corsa is actually not too bad to look at. I remember when those were new, they did stand out quite nicely, specially SXI etc.

But now...totally ruined by the scum of today.

That rear bumper is perfect for a full car-width exhaust....the ultimate chav accessory last seen on a local saxo, I find it truly hideous but the quality of work looks good, and you know what your aiming at. Dare you to put a sub box in the back and drop several small pieces of plastic through the port, with 'should have bought a fiat' inscribed on them for when they open the box up to find out what the crap rattling is.
