right here is my Corrado project which also has to be my daily driver unfortunatly. its a 1990 1.8 16v in nugget yellow (nice and subtle! Laughing ).

I have not done a huge amount to it (well not modifications anyway) this is not long after i 1st got it:

here we go again...new Rado! (pg 4)  DSC00472

here we go again...new Rado! (pg 4)  RADO1

1st thing was to put on my 280mm Momo steering wheel outta my previous mk2 turbo:
here we go again...new Rado! (pg 4)  DSC00078

a few stickers:
here we go again...new Rado! (pg 4)  Martinspics023

here we go again...new Rado! (pg 4)  Sticker

then a 60mm slam and some pressed plates and black grill badge:
here we go again...new Rado! (pg 4)  Inter8

here we go again...new Rado! (pg 4)  Inter6

thats about all i have done in terms of mods but have fixed/replaced loads (all new brakes/exhaust/suspension etc etc) but the car has done 187k now so i suppose i should expect a few bits to start wearing out! Smile

Hey martin,your rado's looking good.Really like the colour and the wheels fit the car nicely too.Looking forward to seeing it on fri.Was wondering tho,did you get that yellow corrado sticker from empiregfx.com as I have ordered a chrome one along with some red tail light stickers a week ago and they haven't turned up yet.They say it will take 4-7 days but unfortunately they haven't got their customer services/contact up and running yet so I can't contact them,which is annoying.Just wondered if you did then how long till you got yours.Cheers

Cheers dude, yeah it was from Empiregfx, think it took about 7days (i was just starting to wonder where it was then it turned up!) Cool

I was thinking about the tail light stickers too, keep me posted how you get on with them (if they turn up!). Very Happy
