So first was engine out, rust treat and repaint engine bay. Fitted new clutch and a gearbox that wont crunch I hope, plus finally fitted my Quaife LSD.
The header tank and heater box has now all gone and a 106 GTi rad fitted so hopefully it will cool it enough still, new Mocal oil cooler;
New Compbrake rose jointed 309 wishbone and shafts, braided hoses, and new Bilstien shocks.
Then my home brewed fibre glass Auto bonnet with T16 vent which is a x-sport auto hump grafted on a Shenpar bonnet with a vent cut in.
As I had no luck finding a Dimma rear panel, I made my own T16 style rear grille, which took a lot of time to get right and I destroyed 3 front grilles doing it, its still not perfect but it looks ok,
A fibre glass tailgate will be added and cut to suit.
Front valance and bumper cut to aid cooling and again in T16 style;
Then the bit I had been dreading, the roof!
This car when I first got it came with the factory sunroof, so I cut a roof skin from a scrap non sunroof 205 and grafted in on. This was put on top of the old one for ease mainly but this did mean now it had 2 roof shins instead of just one! This didnt bother me at the time but now as less wieght is free power and the fact that I found out later the body shop I took it to let the roof get wet for 2 days with no primer or protection, despite may strongly asking them to keep it inside or cover it up. So all the welds got rust and the rust has now blistered through the paint as they most not have cleaned all the rust off before painting, idiots!
So the plan now is remove the old skins and add a carbon fibre roof skin sheet, so angle grinder out and off they came;
this is where Im at now so as soon as the carbon goes on I will post pics up.
