Hi, Owned the Rallye for a few years by now and it has been off the road for the last 4 years (possibly a bit more).

The strip down started around Jan of 14.... recently (relatively speaking) speeded up on the progress..

I've been been following the numerous resto threads on here, they've inspired me to keep driving ahead with my own project Thumbs up

See from the pics that I started working on the Rallye on the drive outside the house, got to the point that the car was near enough stripped to the point where it was immobile.... then moved house around 12 months ago. Moved the shell to a 'Hidden' corner of the factory at work and packed the rest into boxes for moving. Hyper

This is how it looked when I bought it and my inspiration to get my ass in gear to sort it out before I forget how it came apart and where all the parts have gone, haha.



Fast forward the story so far...











At this point moved house and shifted the body to work, getting it on to the trailer was painful..



Eventually got going again this summer.. Countless hours with a grinder and a MIG welder.. Electrox primer and stone chip..
The original seam sealant used by Peugeot is great at trapping water! Mine had gone in the usual front floor pan corner sections, looked fine until you start peeling the sealant away Cry









Cherry red under the boot and fuel tank..



Refurb IM Axle, new mounts, shocks, bolts and disk guards. Cleaned and painted brackets.







This month started on painting the wings, doors, bumpers and side skirts. (Handy booth at work)







Head skimmed and refurbed by Carl in 2014.




Hope to get the rear hubs and wheels back on this weekend and start prepping the body for paint.

I may need your help with sourcing parts that i've lost, broken or are generally knackered for the rebuild..

Love to meet the French bloke who specified the material/plating (or lack of) for the bolts, they must of had over production of cheese at the time, pretty good at extracting sheared bolts by now Thumbs up

Ben, I've been following your project, its been truly inspiring and spurring me along on this one to be honest.

How many hours/days did you spend under yours? Think I spent roughly a solid week under mine in total, killed 1 drill and 1 grinder... and two visits to hospital so far..

Lol, well, id reckon perhaps a solid week, maybe a touch longer. It certainly seems like half a lifetime spent staring upward at a Rallye floorpan. I also killed one grinder and countless brush attachments. Fortunately, I've not had to visit the hospital yet!

Great work. I spent a lot longer under mine as I knew stuff-all when I started, in my case a lot of trial and error which is time-consuming. Knowing which tools you need speeds up the job no end. Good to see another Rallye on the way back to full health.

Top work Gareth, coming along very well - although i must say in the first pictures before the strip down i thought the car looked mint to be honest. Good luck with finding all your bits bud, i couldn't believe how much stuff comes of them. I filled half a single garage and most of my shed with stuff i'd stripped off lol - just ask Carl Chambers Big grin Hope the rest goes well for you mate Thumbs up
