      Those Cabrios must've been so floppy. Even with a full shell if you jack it under the A pillar you can see the door gap changing and the latch no longer lines up.

      No plans for the black one except to use some of the parts and to use it as a test fitment jig. It's just a front cut now.

        So you're going to put some castor wheels under the back and do some epic FWD drift skids for our entertainment then?

            I've actually done something!

            I had a spare front nose cut bit which makes fitting an intercooler and radiator easy. The Barina radiator was too wide to allow for intercooler piping either side so I got a Astra radiator which is narrower but taller. Basically using it just for the core and i'm making new end tanks.

            So here's the intercooler. 600x300x75 but had to cut one row of fins and a bar off the top, and weld some sharp bends to it. Only thing in the way with a non air conditioned barina is the outside air temp sensor and the horn. So i'll have to figure out somewhere for the horn to go to let out all the beep beeps.

                Got a chance to do some more turbo stuff. Removable section of wastegate dump is for quick screamer pipe swapping..

                  You are a sick, sick man Mr Armstrong...but i like it! How closely related to a Family II is the engine in terms of engine mounts? Would be hilarious in a Camira...

                    The engine mounts aren't the same but for a Camira you'd be better off with a Family II turbo engine like the Astra or Calibra engine. Camira with a full Calibra 4WD swap would be a cool sleeper!

                    Thought i'd stick with Family I to save a bit of weight and because of bolt in. Although the Family II conversion into a Barina (Corsa B) is common enough in Europe that you can buy engine mounts for it on ebay.

                          How far away do you reckon the turbo engine is?

                              Nice. I love that the fab work is nicer than a large chunk of the proper nice cars on the forum (mine included ) That stainless turbo dump and screamer is workshop quality mint.

                                Progress report?

                                I'm kinda keen to do one of these. Even though euro-GMs shit me up the wall, and the pedals are too close together.
