Well I thought it only right to chuck up a few pics of our Rallye trackday project.

**This thread will be photo heavy btw** Whistle

Some of you will remember that Dave and I shared a 106 Rallye a couple of years ago which we had tons of fun with..





But since that was sold a while ago the time came to do it all over again!

I haven't posted any pics sooner because I was actually a little worried we might upset the previous owner who asked us to "look after it" Whistle

If you're still reading the forum Pete then SORRY! Unsure LOL

Here's what it was like on the day of purchase..






But we didn't wanna leave it like that so we got straight to work..



Using only the correct tools obviously!








Better than a scooter..


We wanted every single fibre of sound deadening destroyed so obviously the dash had to get out of the way..






Reminds me of an invalid carriage


Dash back in for now..


Will continue in a bit with the following days Smile

Pugsport catback system
Carbon Lorraine RC6 brake pads

Nautillus Airhorn for middle lane morons Whistle


Corbeau Revolution buckets with aluminium subframes


KW Varient 2 coilovers and eccentric top mounts


Custom cages 306 Challenge weld in cage




and then in a moment of FRENCH patriotism we sprayed the wing mirrors Tricolore Tee hee

Eventually with the help of big brother we made a start fitting the 306 challenge cage which lived up to it's name Dry






Fuel tank out for obvious reasons but.. yeah I had left 60 litres of V-Power in it Doh


It was mid "BBQ-summer" so we needed to get around all this good weather we were having..



Finally the cage was coming together after many alterations to the length and form of the scaffolding Dry





Primer and painting then occured..



Holes in the bulkhead were sealed with silicon..


We were a little worried about the ECU socket (this is a view from the scuttle tray area) but it went in JUST with a bit of "modification" Whistle



and unbelieveably with another small "mod" the windscreen wiper motor fitted back in place!


The dash needed serious dieting to get it to fit back in




Even then the dash bar would have prevented it going back in so we fitted it above the dash. This way we didn't need to remove the steering column besides which we like it where it is. It doesn't cause any issues with visability either so a tidy job was made of the remaining shell of the dash.



By this point we were all dead tired

I'd just replace the standard twin horn with one like above. That Nautilus is plenty loud enough and has a nice italian supercar PAAAAAAAAAARPPPPP! Laugh

The engine is standard apart from PT80 spec cams which it came with. It'll stay like that for now as it saves worrying about an expensive engine and mechanical sympathy on trackdays! Seems pretty rapid and is stronger than my rallye was.

I forgot to mention the 6 point Sabelt which went in soon after the rear of the cage was painted up.

We decided to raise the rear of the bonnet up to allow heat to escape as you can see


However that caused the slight undesirable effect of engine fumes to get sucked into the cabin while caught in traffic etc! LOL

I actually started to feel quite ill so we decided to make a fresh air feed from infront of the fans using the old air intake..

As you can see we already relocated the battery to behind the passenger seat as low down as possible.


Since then we've got some proper conduit to house the main loom from front to back and fully sprayed the cage.

Also the high sided seats made getting in and out a pain in the ass so we sourced a Sparco wheel with snap off boss. Much better and possibly a theft deterant too.

The windows are staying until Dave lets me get some polycarbs to turn it into a sauna Whistle

It's inaugural trackday should hopefully be Snetterton next month and then if all goes well it'll be off to Germany Cool

These pics are from last weekend Smile








Cheers for the comments guys! Really makes it worth doing this thread which actually seems like more hard work than working on the car itself! LOL

Cheers Jim! You know the best bit is ripping everything out! Instant performance gains Razz

Working on something like this with your mate (or cousin in this case!) does make it alot more fun. Especially shitty jobs like dash work.

Could easily goo mad tackling a job like that on yer own Crazy

It does flex a little more than before while raised up. Once it's latched down it's as solid as it was before it met the disc cutter. I guess that's the most important aspect LOL
