I hope to be but all depends if I can get the car to a drivable state and get it mapped before pugfest which I think is unlikely but we will see

Lost the love already!, you need to be blasting it round some country lanes in the wet, then the mud will cover up any defects. And you'll love it again.

The plot thickens and the love is dramatically reducing Sad

So I haven't driven the car for 3 weeks now due to waiting for my wings to be repaired and painted Sad hopefully they will be done by the beginning of next week so then I can sort out bolting the bumper to the shell rather than the wings and risk cracking them again!

Whilst I can't use the car I decided it was about time I get an alarm fitted so then I dont have to worry about leaving it places and also with a certificate it will then be insured against theft.

I already had two top of the range Clifford g5 alarms so all I would have to do is pay the Labour to get one of them fitted... Or not!

Think iv been bent over today Sad

So the alarm bloke turns up, I showed him both alarms, both identical however one had full system closure (open/close the Windows with the remote) and it also had a pager which was very expensive but I never really used it.

Now both alarms had been fitted to 306's in the past and both were cut out by cutting the car side of the looms not the Clifford looms.
The alarm bloke said due to the "state" of both the old alarms it would cost as much to fit the old ones as buying a new one and fitting it as it would take a lot of time (Labour) removing all the electrical tape from the old looms and work out where they go!

So after a 5 minute think I give the go a head to fit a new alarm (again identical to the other 2 apart from the fob is different)

I discussed with him that it had to be a neat install and to mount everything in the driver's rear quarter and that I was then going to get rid of all the old alarm wires, electric mirror wires and electric window wires as I'm fitting perspex ones!

So I leave him for 8 hours while he fits it.... I then come back to find out that it is a bloody mess... Fuming! All the wires that he had to splice in were soldered and then electrical taped... What's wrong with heat shrink??? Also he has spliced in earth cables when there is an earth stud 2" down the wire that he spliced into Sad

So I argued the toss and would not pay the Labour charge of £200 as he could of just used either of the 2 alarms I already have!

This is what I came back to


I then spent the last 4 hours trying to sort this mess out, tracing all the wires and redoing it all, not even close to being finished yet either

So I wasted £400 on an alarm that I already have lol God I'm sick to death of cowboys

Since moving in the new house iv said to my self that I'm not spending any more on the dimma lol

After talking to rich and Ross I now need to get a 3" exhaust system made so that's another £600 I need to spend!

I need to start selling a few bits to build my extension fund back up so soon the 2 alarms and my current zero exhaust will be up for grabs


Rant over lol

Iv managed to get rid of a fair bit more now, in the end I should just have two wires going to each door to lock/unlock and that's it

Probably another 10 hours left lol

Is this a road spec 306 or a track one? Is it trying to be both? I still can't work it out...

It's a bit of both really, no way was I going to send 30k and only use it on track a handful of times a year!
I think the reason you have asked that question is due to me fitting an alarm on it, the main reason is the car has an agreed insurance value of 30k but until I fitted a alarm it was not covered by theft, the other reason is when I go to events or meets I dint really have much trust in leaving the car so little gypsy c**ts can get into my car!

The reason I'm removing all the unused wiring is to loose weight which in turn is free power Smile

I certainly won't be taking it to the shops or to the local McDonald's drive thru if that what your wondering lol

Ollie just keep smiling m8 Thumbs up
That's one very special car !!!!!

I think you need to bite the bullet & get it to Pugfest & you will then see how much others appreciate your masterpiece !!!
Put it on a bloody trailer ....if need be !!!
You can tell people it's not finished & I believe that will give you the extra encouragement you need right now Big grin

I had Similar with my 1974 a mini show car 20years ago ----3 years work & silly little things started to niggle me to the point I didn't want to spend any more time or even money on it .....

I went to a show & the love I got from people & encouragement made me go home & finish the stupid things that make it special Thumbs up
Please just get that car to Pugfest & let others as well as YOU ...enjoy it .....you bloody deserve that & I'm sure others will tell you Ollie how (extra) special this car really is !!!!!!

I think we all enjoy doing these cars up & putting our personalities into them ...then when they are nearly finished & you think I could of done this & that better & small things go wrong ....the love can go as quick as it came !!!!
Some good & great cars have sold on here in the 2.5years I've been around.....
Please just get it to Pugfest somehow Ollie Whistle

Defoe won't make pug fest, no toe bar, no trailer to be able to bring it and still needs the wiring/alarm done, wings and bumper fitted, mapped etc
If I had a garage at the new place it would be so much easier and quicker Sad

I think we need to organise a Pug meet near Fareham to appreciate your car then!. I only saw one 306 Dimma at FCS and wasn't that impressed with it, i actually started doubting whether i made the right decision to buy the kit.
