Hi guys

Picked up my new Evo from Capt.Mike yesterday and loving it so far!

Firstly I'll show you my previous car - A Corsa C with a bit of a twist...

Started off as a standard 1.8 SRi and ended up with a 420bhp Astra VXR engine with a GT3076 :lol:

Won't bore you with lots of pics but here's what it was like

Respray (originally black):



Total Vauxhall photoshoot:









Engine (fully forged etc)





Anyway onto the Evo :D

Just as I was about to drive off from Mike's house



We then went out and did some night time photography :)











Back home for its first wash



and a few more random ones :)















Plans are:

- New wheels, probably Rota Grid Drifts in 9.5J
- Re-paint bonnet and front bumper due to stone chips
- Some carbon goodness
- Enjoy it :)

Would like to say a special thanks to Mike for being so helpful throughout the process of buying it and to his neighbour Ray for taking time to be there when I picked it up due to Mike being away :)

Loving the top job on the Corsa. Not a fan of Corsa's but that could be the best I've seen in a while.
Loving the photography!
Loving the EVO of course. Beautiful car. I'm glad you're going to take such good care of it.

Thanks for all the comments :)

Some awesome quality pics. Which camera and lens did you use?

Good shout with the 9GT also, great car:coolsm:
It's a Canon 5D MK2...not sure on the lens as it's not me that took the pics...I know all his equipment adds up to over £2500 though :eek:

Love the night time pics, Would you mind sharing your technique, I have a Canon 7d, but not really into photography enough to understand how to use it, lol
As above I can't take credit for them, it's a special lighting technique with long shutter speeds, each picture is made up of 5 or so separate pictures so it does take some time to do.

As above mate nice car nice pics.

I like the corsa what you done with it stripped it now?
Cheers, yeah had to break the Corsa for parts to fund the Evo, just got the shell itself left to get rid of now

Love the Evo!!

To be fair not a fan of Corsa's, But really like the hard work thats been put into that, Bet its a real good laugh to drive, and bet its good to see peoples faces when you go flying past them!!!!
It was very good fun, embarassed a lot of expensive fast cars in it :lol:

Cheers Michael, need to go and get some pics together soon...

Glad you're enjoying it Matt. Loving the night time pics. Wish i'd never sold it now. Do keep us all updated with what you do with it. So glad its obviously gone to someone who'll be taking good care of it.

Right, off to cry now! :cry::cry:
I will do for sure, not got many plans for it, only what I've listed in the first post, doesn't need anything else imo :)

Get an X RS ;)

Ok so today I set about giving the car a proper detail.

First job was the arches and mudflaps which were all COVERED in tar. Spent over an hour on each arch.







After, need to dress the liners tomorrow







Same story at the rear, didn't take a before pic unfortunately





Passenger side front after





Onto the washing













Iron-x







Was then clayed and rinsed off again, clay didnt pick up much, just a few bits of tar I missed.

Ready for machine polishing



Only managed to do the bootlid, spoiler, rear bumper and drivers side before calling it a day, will finish off tomorrow :)
