Well I dont actually think Ive ever done a project thread on here, so thought I'd start one as abit or a place to keep all the info etc.

It could be abit all over the place so bare with me as Ive had the rallye 3 and half years now and Ive done quite abit to it, some on here would say Ive ruined it, but nevermind.

Anyhow, here we go. Please give me time as Im sure it will be a few posts lol

Car was completely standard when I bought it in May 2006

The locks had been done (barrels buggered) and the car had been keyed down both sides. The bodywork was actually pretty shabby but the engine was a minter, which is what I wanted

Car when I 1st bought it.



They just before I lowered it I had fitted the single wiper, Magnex, powertec induction kit, decat.



Then a couple of hours later after a 60mm/70mm drop and a swap to AVO adjustable setup.



It has then had a trip to the bodyshop where it has had the locks removed (to stop the theiving scum trying again), where it had been keyed all taken out, and all the side strips colour coding.

It was then time for French Car show where it would make its 1st Track appearance and the car lived up to and exceeded my expectations.

By this point, the dtm mirrors have been added along with my 1st buckets and harnesses.





After the track action there wasnt much left of the tyres so the white BK racing rims have now gone on it along with a new front strut brace.













Then I stripped it right out and this actually left the back sitting pretty high again



Spent 2 weeks of work and it was sporting a new smooth front end, crystal headlights, lowered a little more and stripped interior.





And just how low it really is!!!

Next to a standard 306, you can really see the 80 / 100mm plus drop front and rear



Id swapped over to GAZ adjustables, along with OMP group N pads, Brembo disks and had the middle box removed.


I then got asked to have the car in the PGAC annual calander so had a photoshoot done.

Gave the car one of many proper detailing/polish/wax in prep for the shows of 2006.

Before


After




By this time Id added a Nissens Alloy rad, Tarmac Sump Guard, Uprated suspension top mounts, Mintex M1144 pads and group N grooved discs all round, OMP Record seats and further stripping of the interior.

And Ive also got a new camera to take lots more pictures.






Had a play with the new camera as well.








Also been on the rolling road with it, managed 181 bhp at the fly and 163 at the wheels, proper chuffed with that.








And the next mod for it was.......... thermostatically controlled Mocal oil cooler to solve the problems of high oil temp on the track.




Well I fitted the oil cooler a month later in time for the track at Donny!!




Refurbed my wheels again (1st time was when I 1st fitted them to the rallye)

before


During


After


And also dropped the spare steelie and cage from under the car, now have this

Then in true form cooked my brakes at donny, been having this problem constantly, and tried a few brake setups as I really do drive the car hard, so decided on a full caliper refurb and DS2500 pads



Oil cooler pipe split on me



Then the driveshaft went



Then driving down the road with a loud knocking, ended up being only 2 nuts left in the wheel, almost fell off :shock:

So decided its trying to kill me!

So went to full race spec, aircraft twist release 3 inch 4 point harnesses

Before



Now




Bumper started peeling following my inner arches shooting out at donny on track



Wheels got refurbed again but it was a crap job on them









Anyhow, I sorted them out, rubbed em down and buffed them up, and they dont look to bad.

So had bonnet resprayed, bumper resprayed and boot smoothed (Stone chips from the airfield trackdays hammers the front of the motor)

With FCS on the cards and being selected at top25 I got to work on minting the car out.

Got busy underneath, sealed, cleaned and repainted as well as polished the exhaust up.

Before


After



Also done some new rally/race doorcards

Before


After



And done the back to match.


Then came along the.....

Powered by Maltesers, lol. Think we all remember this, tho it didnt last to long before it got binned





And polished up the inlet manifold.

Pic from USC Show and Shine last weekend


Had a busy last few months then.

Done the engine bay out, polished rocker covers, battery cover, fuse box cover and powersteering res cover, painted manifold, braided fuel lines and a general good tidy up under the bonnet.





Then it spat a driveshaft (its probably done half a dozen lol)



Put a new gearbox and clutch along with group N engine mounts, engine chocks and a group A lower mount, turns out the reason for the bust driveshafts was a shot top mount



Then it was looking something like this

Then along came the cage

Was just placed in the car to get it home, got it cheap from up in scotland, was worth the drive for some epic roads





And some of the brakets I made up ready to fit it



Then spent a saturday modding it and fitting it





All in and painted up









Managed to test it out with a few sessions at Donny, was surprised how much difference it makes in stiffening up the whole car.









Also sprayed up all the interior floor





Decided to change teh track rims (and one I use as a spare) to white

Rubbed down ready





Primed



Layering the coats on



Final coat



And the finished article with laquered finish



Repaired the drivers seat with a pair of new patches (not the best but 100 times better than before)

Before



After



And tonight, fitted the new wing, gonna need to give the car a good going over to get the colours matching lol.





Rust on the old copy panel



Original pug panel now fitted

Cheers.

TBH I'd love to S/C it but just dont have the money, me and the missus are saving up for a bigger house (Ive demanded a house with garage/drive lol) So have other priorities but I do plan to get bodies should they come up cheap enough second hand, although I'd like a LSDS 1st and possibly look at lifint it an inch with more suspension mods aimed more for trackday.

Only a matter of removing the old lock, weld a plate in, smooth over and paint.

The popper was about a fiver of egay!

Absolutely love this car- totally the same idea that I have. Cars should be totally immacculate, want for nothing and driven exactly as they should be! Looks like you've really looked after it and enjoyed it. If it ever comes up for sale let me know Wink

Loved the white wheels by the way...
