Just make sure its refitted well because when they arent a lot of 205's due to poor fitment tent to rust around the edges.

Did you buy new red strips and if so where from?

Youve been lucky there then, i have the crome front and rear ones now, they are stronger probably due to the chroming. Then ill sand them back, use etch and paint them the same colour, this way they wont get dented as easily.

Cars gonna look great when you refit it all back, miami is one of my favourite colours, i had one back in 2005 till the beam collapsed on me before i knew any better. Hope the shade comes out well as its a hard colour to get right

Had it colour matched so hopefully it will be ok, 8 shades apparently.

Got me some more bits, the manky heat shields under Neath are not so manky, also the spare wheel cradle.

A bit more has happened, we have had a few issues with reactions due to the plastics obviosuly being treated with dressings etc to make them look there best and this had an effect on the way the plastic primer was adhering or not in my case.


Finally they were ready for paint-



what i came to work and found-




Very pleased with the outcome, just hoping they suite the car, heres a finish before they have been polished etc-




Just got to start fitting it back up now.

Did they change the gear stick area heat sheild, that type wasnt on my car, mine's the full version and never seen one like that before but then iv not owned a 205 younger than K plate??

Thats not surprising you got a reactikn on the kit with years of products on it, heat sheilds look good though.

Or is that sheild for the 205 CAT?

Carl, not trying to see if you want to sell Wink, but how much would you value your 205 at now, considering all the work and time that's gone into it?

I honestly don't know, it ends up just being a thing to play with rather than a money figure, to some it has been ruined, to others like myself it's been improved.

Worth what someone is willing to pay for it is the end value.

Alright then I'll give you a fiver !!

In honesty there are some bits like the plastics which I'm 50/50 on but the rest is my perfect 205. All very tidy and at the same time very standard in looks. If you ever sell then please let me know

I think they look fine. I'm all for people taking a 'risk'.

I personally do worry how they will look once a few stones have hit them though. Although I get the impression it's more of an ornament.

    Exactly, thats about how much ornaments do a year, these cars were built for fun imo.

    Not for me at all, although nice and shiny they just look a bit cheap. Take dark cars and light coloured wheels, the contrast looks good and the same goes with the kit, a shiny body with the dull matt body-kit look well complimented but thats just me, it reminds me of a saxo or similar tbh, too modern.

    Looks a good job though Carl, if you like it thats what really matters Thumbs up

    Decided to pull my finger out, the car was at work so basically when I had finished all the jobs at work I just couldn't be arsed to start on my own, all the parts are colour coded (anthracite),the only bits I have to refit are the rear arches and the back bumper, when I looked over the rear end etc I thought this could do with a good tidy up so left these off.

    I put the old girl on the back of the truck and brought it home this afternoon, the car really needed a good wash and if I was going to make the underside all fresh I thought I may as well get the pressure washer on it and remove all the grime, good base to start.

    To start with, looking little a car wreck.



    Now this tool is a real god send, it gets the car high enough in the air to do most things and making pressure washing the underside off a doddle



    Up she goes, I have to say my arse still twitches a little with this



    What I was greeted with under side, it's not that bad to be fair, mainly dirt and surface rust but where the floor pan meets the back panel it's a little crusty under Neath, thought it was best I sort it now whilst I don't have to weld in new metal. Coated the floor in a nice thick layer of tfr, you have to watch out when the wind changes jeez.



    What it looked like with a round of a hot pressure washer, not that much grime can hang on, quite a change, looks loads cleaner in the flesh.



    The tfr Woking it's magic, the actual exhaust system was fizzing up, this stuff is potent.



    A few of the clean pictures. Not too bad









    Decided to wash off the engine bay and add some aerospace 303 (basically it brightens up all the plastics) brilliant stuff. The bay really is the nicest part of the car at the minute, if I can get the rest of the car to look like that I will be well chuffed.




    Gave the body work a good going over, a little upset as the employee decided to paint a Clio door in the garage and the 205 managed to pick up some over spray, most of the bodywork feels rough to the touch, will have to get on this once the underside is done.



    As she stands now, I was going to get the back axle and tank stripped out today but after doing the garden and having my dinner I decided to leave it for another day. Gives it time to dry off anyway, that's my excuse.

    Tucked up, little does she know the spanners are going to be attacking her very soon........

    Looking great Carl. The underside of the boot floor is really pretty much rust free, but you might still want to drop the tank as quite often moisture can sit up there an do its damage.
