The body work on my corsa was already redone when I bought it and when the previous owner had replaced some body panels they didn’t make new holes for the emblems the sit in front of the rear wheels. I have the emblems and would like to install them without damaging the paint. How do I go about this? What process have you guys used. I’ve heard of using masking tape, an awl and some rtv to help s

Is it difficult to attach the chrome trim around the wheel wells for a 65? (Assuming I have little to no experience with the type of thing).

Does the 65 Corsa convertible 140hp have the Corsa “C” badge that’s located towards the bottom sides directly next to the rear wheels? I’ve seen it located on the turbocharged Corsa convertible but what about the 140? I always love good looking emblems but I’d like it to be accurate.

I’m not exactly going for mint condition...that being said, what would happen if I scraped off as much as I could and painted the new coat over the current one?

I could only find the entire piece on Clark’s which if necessary I will purchase, but it’s 90 bucks and I have half of it already, so I’m just wondering if anyone has the rest of it before I go all in and buy the one from Clark’s.

I have purchased the correct paint and clear coat from SEM for the red foot panels. However, I'm having trouble finding a solution to removing the current paint. I've checked Home Depot, O'reilly's, and Auto Zone but none knew of anything. Someone recommended using 250 grit sandpaper and maybe even wet sanding. I've also seen internet solutions recommend vegetable oil, na

I was actually planning on leaving that in! I agree I think it adds character and history to the car.

Thank you Rich, very helpful. And I can just spray it on normally with an aerosol can? Just tape everything up and spray like normal?

I have asked about this before and received many good recommendations on what types of paint, but how would I go about repainting both the foot panels and the center console? The foot panel paint is more brittle but some is still on pretty good. (preferably solutions with no sand blaster because I'd like to try to do this at home). The center console seems it would be a little more tough bec

RexJohnson, that’s not a bad idea actually. Was it fairly easy to install the new Corsa grills over the old Monza one?

Yeah I’m sure. As of taking the Monza panel off, is it any different than removing the Corsa panels? Just some screws?

I was afraid of that... any idea how much the entire piece, grills included would cost? (And if they’ll need to be painted or if they can be purchased painted).

I just took some pictures of the rear grills and they don't even appear to be separate parts...the entire piece appears to be one. This is a 65 Corsa, but this doesn't appear to be the right piece unless I'm mistaken and the paint is just making it appear to be one piece?

The previous owner of my Corsa has painted over the rear aluminum grills making them white. I never minded but I was recently made aware that the original style for Corsas is the aluminum look. Besides that, they’re pretty banged up. So out of curiosity, how easy are those to remove? Do they just pop right out/ back in? And does anyone have any available?
