This is the latest 306 ive decided to save/repair.

Ladies,gentlemen and oddballs i give you T595 HFC Aka Pinky! Smile

I picked up Pinky today from forum memebr Mikey G.Mikey's had the car for some time but due to other commitments he's been unable to keep her at her best and he needed her gone sadly. Sad

So here i am stepping in to bring her back to her former glory.as you can see from the pics she neeeds some tlc mainly in the bodywork depratment but hopefully ill have her looking nice sooner rather than later.car drives fantastically and dare i say i prefer the way a rallye feels to a GTI-6! Shock


So here are the pics:-

As she turned up at 6pm




and heres a few after a quick wash









And the all important pic of those wonderful 3 stripes




Pics make the car look alot worse than it is as ive been using my cheap mobile to take snaps.

As you can see theres a few minor things that need addressing to make her beautiful once more.these are

1.front bumper needs repair.
2.paintwork needs correction
3.passenger side skirk needs repaint
4.various minor stonechips/scuffs needs to be corrected.

I am doing this car on a budget as im undecided to keep it a s a track toy or sell to a fellow member to enjoy,so will decide how much for the car will be painted after i get the dreaded MOT out of the way this week.

Also to freshen up her im going to make a few minor changes like losing the stupid orange side reapeaters and a new set of numberplates.



Any donations to the Pinky fund are grately appraciated! Big grin Laugh

i'm sure cheese moulding would've produced a stronger bumper than the crap Peugeot made. :/

Looks like the one ive just boughtLOL mine needs mainly bodywork doing including the front bumper!! Hows the drivers bolster?

Be v.interested in how you get the red paintwork gleaming again.

Ive been out tonight looking at how im going to get the exterior trim looking decent again - any ideas?

Ive already bought a original h/u and multichanger and kn panel filter and hopefully some rallye fabric to get the seat sorted...

Interior is near mint bar a tiny tear in the boulster,unbelievable for 117k!Shock

Also had a brand new bumper,lower grille and splitter chucked in when i bought the car so if this bumper wont repair ill be using that.

For the bodywork im having it detailed on the cheap by a mate and will see what level off red she comes back to then and tbh im looking to have the front end sprayed.to bring the trims back up get some autoglym bumper care aka bumper snot on there! Thumbs up

Ash, get both sideskirts sprayed as they are most probably only one paint coat with no lacquer. Seen 3 cherry rallyes like that now and you obviously can't cut it back so they do go pink.

Nice find though fella and you are right- they do feel better!

No, that's '6 cambelts! Rover made the headgaskets from hopes and dreams. Thumbs up

Mine's split under the drivers fog. Dry Are you going to replace or repair that one? Be interested to see a repair. Smile

Shall be watching the thread, looks a fair example for the mileage. Good buy. Thumbs up

Red t-cut bought my skirts back to a reasonable shade but non of my panels match the shade of its neighbour anyway - but yours is doing well with only one visible stone chip on the bonnet - i've got 18 on the leading edge alone LOL

What's the car like mechanically? Mileage etc?

Red does suit the shape really well.

Mechanically the car is sweet as a nut.she's done 117k but had a rebuild at 86k so 31k on a rebuilt engine.

All suspension has been replaced and shes been lowered 30mm all round (eibachs on the front,torsion adjusted to match).came with a huge wad of recepits and service history up to 108k! Shock

She's got her mot booked wens so wish me luck! Smile
