You sound like me, untill you start to get the urge and start taking it to pieces it will never get done.

Just put a clutch in my rallye today and had a good luck around, yes there is some rust but its not like yours Carl although i just wanted to rip it all to pieces and get the paint gun out.

All good things come to those who wait.

Is your engine bay paint work like mine a dull white compared to the body?

Carl

Very nice Carl. I've just got round to putting BTCC alloys onto a white Rallye and I'm very happy with how it looks. Don't think you can fail, whichever colour you go for.

Got any pics?


Will get some up tomorrow after I clean it and before it rains.Wink

Put crystals and clear repeaters on today as well and replaced the exhaust at the beginning of the week. Very nearly finished spending money. Well, on the outside at least.

Didn't beat the rain so just gave it a quick clean and took a couple of cheeky snaps in the park.

Have adjusted the exposure a little cos it's a shitty day.

55s on standard ride height.



Previous owner jet washed some of the front decals off. Have a new set from Rick_Rallye but havent got round to putting them on yet. That tow bar needs to go as well.





Needs centre caps I think. White or black I reckon. Does anyone know, are they just standard speedline ones?

Agree but Im gonna try to get the rear hub nut caps to fit in the front somehow.
Normal pug centre caps dont fit in the wheels anyway, tried that

More stripping out and weight saving done over the weekend.
Dead sheeting removed from floor and wipr tray, 6kilos saved,









Head lining removed and gone in the bin





Along with PAS cooling pipes, (dont need them!)



And charcoal canister in drivers side wing (dont need that!)



And rear brake compensator! (dont want the either!)



Dash was then removed as it has a bubble in it due to being sat in the sun too long, new dash will be refitted later,





plus heater matrix was leaking anyway.



Sound deadening from behind the dash was removed and saved another 7kilos!





I then started to remove some unwanted wiring,



Lots more wiring will be going soon!

then the petrol tank was removed ready to sand blast and paint the floor pan,

Thats the idea! weight saving is free power, you wait till I get the grinder on the doors etc.

It looks like you are flying along with it now, didnt realise all the sound deadening weighed so much.

Are you doing the sand blasting or have you got to send it out?

there is millions more to come out, my p1 shell looks a bit like that, i've got about 30kg of bits lay about that have been removed just in the past week. also got them brackets out from the shell with a sharp chisel and some brute force - very tidy result infact

that stuff on the floor chips up the same, i noticed a few people struggling and dousing it all in fuel etc but mine came up no problem

More weight saving has been done with spare wheel carrier brackets and lower bumper mounts being removed;



then I took an angle grinder to the doors,



and the tailgate,



then things got a bit sillyCrazy

The passenger side rear bulb holder was cut so no more rear fog or reverse light on that side, which also meant the wiring across the car to the holder for them could go aswell,

before



after



the third brake light now only has 2 bulbs in it.

before;



after



but more weight was then added as a roll cage was fitted. This is only a show cage, and before you all go off on one this is NOT GOING TO BE A TRACK CAR! It will just look like it could be one as I already have a GTI-6 powered 205 as a trackcar.

The cage had to be cut in half as it came out of a 205, so was not wide enough.



A small piece was welded in the middle which will be cover by harness pads later.

Looks really good, unsure on the bulb holder etc, ha ha.

Whats the difference between a show cage and a normal one, i take it a show cage is made of softer material and is just there to look good, surely it should add some strentgh?
