Hi guys

I recently picked up my new supercharged 6, thanks to Pete for a straight forward deal and to Ash for doing a lot of driving on a Monday night to collect it from Kent!





I've had french hatches since I was 18 including:










The plan is to keep this one and develop it, she's an unfinished project but essentially a good car with a freshly built high boost engine Smile

Home safely and gave her a clean and Meguirs 3 stage the bring the paint up



Work begins, first removing cage








Bucket seat out, frame was fixed with 3 bolts and a zip tie and was p**sed so gonna weld the seat frame in nice and square




Started sanding down cage




I'm going to spray the cage black along with the rest of the interior, which first had to be stripped of sticky bitumen underseal type paint that had been applied, everywhere.
Started here, note the differnce between the clean bits and the deep mahogany of the underseal LOL




The rest took a Saturday, several evenings, 4 litres of white spirit, 10 old T-shirts, a lot of sweat and a sh!t load of patience




Next to tackle the floor insulation in the front by soaking it in white spirit to soften it up then scrape and chisel off



looks a bit like burnt donner meat



The result




General clean up behind lights etc






Removed all rubber seals and put them in the washing machine for a clean up

Front bumper off for a check over of the cooling systems




I'm probably going to relocate the engine oil cooler to one side and fit some better brackets to support the charger oil cooler. I also intend to core drill some holes in the bumper where the number plate sits.


Looking into an issue with the fuel pump wiring




Ash removing a lot of unwanted wiring




Removed expanding foam from holes where fuel pipes go through the floor



These are going to be re-routed and proper bulkhead fittings will be used.


Lights back in and rubber seals all reffited, I do like the clean simple look of the back of this car




A good day of progress with the interior & wiring, all the hard work with a hangover took its toll, poor soldier Roll eyes




All packed up ready to be trailered to Ash's workshop to have the cage mounting points and seat frames welded this weekend

Thanks mate, it is pretty tidy overall and plenty smart enough for a track car!

They're actually compomotive wheels, they look almost identical to the PR3's tho. I do like the look of them but they're quite heavy so might sell them to get some lighter ones...

Lol at the seat ziptie. Some bodges never fail to amaze me. I bought my car from a guy who'd used it for hillclimbing, both front seats were held in with 2 opposite corner bolts!

Never thought of putting the seals in the washing machine. LOL

That washing machine was my top tip. I did it when I built my 205. Collecting the 306 in the morning to attack it with the welder.... Smile

Yeh it certainly wasn't the best way to mount it lol. Still all the major work on the front end and engine looks really good. That seems to be where Pete focussed most of his attention, the engine bay is lovely.

The seals were like new after a 60deg 'bed & bath' cycle no 9 in the Hotpoint, obvs using Daz LOL

The front end is a credit to you mate, just gonna bring the rest up to the same standard and she'll be a beauty!

Intermittently not getting power to the Bosch, I've removed that additional relay and run it all off the standard unit, I think I need to also re do the earths

Looks a lovely car. Nice to see one being sorted to actually receive some abuse. Many of these seem to get nursed which is a shame as they are designed for abuse.

get another relay in there, a motorsport pump sucks a lot more juice than a stock one so to run two off the same wiring isn't ideal.

Ah cool I might be reinstating that relay then as I'm pretty sure it was the earthing causing the issue although it does seem to be working fine now...

It certainly will be used properly and driven hard at trackdays, I love it!
I've always been the underdog in sub 200 bhp cars at trackdays which is fun but if I drive this thing with the same attitude as I have in my previous cars it should be interesting!

Hi petey. Glad to see it's gone to someone who can keep us up to date with progress and someone who, judging by your original sign up date, has been around the '6 scene for a good while.

The car was great to start with and could be as good as a magazine feature if you're that way inclined. When was the last time a 306 graced the pages of PFC ? All your plans sound spot on to me, will be watching this thread with interest

Progress...

I went over to Petes on Saturday morning and brought the car back to my workshop.



As there was no foot mounts I had to make some from scratch. Can't really see from the picture but the mount also comes up the sill. Rather than just bolt the OMP cage In I felt it was easy and actually better to make it a fully weld in job.

B pillar floor mount


I also made a plate for the A pillar floor mount and welded that in too. (Forgot to get a picture)

By that time it was Saturday evening so we went and got p**ssed...

I had a few hours on it this evening, the top B pillar mount is miles away from being in the right place, nice one OMP!


So I move it and weld it in the correct place



As the rest of the cage was no longer removable I didn't see the point of bolting the rear arch mounts in, plus my arms aren't long enough to be inside the car and inside the wheel arch.
So I removed the wheel, arch liner and welded the cage in here



While I was there the old harness bar which was bolted to the wheel arches previous got chopped about and added into the roll cage





And how I left it this evening.

Hi mate thanks for the positve comments, I've been into these cars for years now, went over to Renault for a bit but somehow knew I'd end up back in a pug lol

Yeh should be worthy of a feature watch this space...

Did you remove the arch liner and fuel filler neck to weld in the drivers side arch mount? I'm fitting one at the moment, got the other 5 in but couldn't remove the bloody filler neck.

I haven't done it yet. Debating dropping the tank out if I'm honest.

Same as that. We're looking to do that as it seems to be the only way to remove the filler neck.
