i'll give the chiesel a whirl, someone mentioned petrol to give a clean finish, but i really dont fancy splashing it around the inside of my car....

Huh?

I warmed it with a heat gun then chieseled it off as it makes it a bit easier, then just cleaned up with some thinners

I saw this car yesterday, oh my god Carl has spent hours of work on this car, and I know that he will do it to top standards. I would have to agree with the members about the show cage (sorry carl, lol) as its stripped I think you should fit a proper Roll Cage especially if you want it to look like a BTCC car!

How long did it take you to get the dash out mate? I want to remove the bulkhead sound deadening but my car is my daily driver so if it's doable inside of a day I'll tackle it.

you should be able to get the dash in and out in a day if you go for it, but prob best to do it over a weekend (2 days) if you have never took one out before.

After a long break due to meets and being busy I have finally started on this again. I have also been looking into having the car dipped or sand blasted in order to get rid of some of the rust, but due to the cost and difficuilty of getting the shell to and for these places that due it I decided to against it.

I bought a small bodyshop sand blaster but this turned out tto be completely useless as it barely took the paint off! So a more heavy duty one was bought and although this was much better it still didnt really get rid of all the rust. It make one hell of a mess though with git going everywhere!!

So it was out with the good old wire wheel and the DA sander to get the rest off. It came up fairly well in the end although Im not fully happy with it.







The whole area was then painted with rust killer to treat any traces of rust that did remain and form a barrier to prevent further rust.

Rear arches have been tapped flat, I was going to just cut the lip off but thought this way would be neater and stronger.

before;



after;



then the next coat has been applied, this time its grey stone chip.





then started to get the new suspension bits ready to rebuild the axle, decided to use all new stardard bits as I like the way a 306 drives so didnt want to risk messing it up by fitting uprated bits.

Looks nice Carl, are you giving it a white finish or leaving it as stone chip?

Looking at the pictures it looks easy but as i found out doing the 205 its not as easy as it looks, ie remembering where bits go and to put them back together in the right order.

Is this just going to be a toy once finished?

Carl

Its going to be a motorsport grey, like the touring cars were.

Yeah seam to have bits everywere, so yeah remembering what comes from were is good fun!!

Its going to be a fast road toy, I keeping the 205 as a track car cause there is now way of getting the 306 down to the weight of the 205!

The rear beam has now been stripped;



Then tried a special rust cleaner/remover



Been told this works well, so thought I would give it a go.
Yes your not seeing things that is tomato ketchup!
Painted it all over the axle and left it 2 days.



Well does work but its a right pig to clean off again! Plus I hate the stuff and it stinks! Glad I dont eat it seeing how it got the rust off! After a good rub down with a wire wheel you get this,





Then a coat of rust killer to be safe and painted with acid etch primer
