Yeah but theres no access to get your hands in the right place AND the bung is too big to fit behind the AC pipes properly so it's a pita to seat...even bending the pipes out the way isn't great because that reduces the access space even more lol. And if you don't seat it right you get an annoying boost leak noise in the footwell...

It's doable, just not as easy as you'd expect a cable to be!

well my pads have come, and I have got some rose jointed drop links to go on the car, but with the weather been cold and wet. I have to hold off sorting the clutch cable out!
I may look at replacing the driver side brake calioper as I suspect that's causing the scoring. the passanger side was replaced the 1st time around.

yeah, we have had only one great day, that was when I did the centre console and I started the rocker cover gasket change, which took well over a week, again due to weather!

and new one in place

[Image: 20140203133350_zps29a58ae6-1.jpg]

done the same on the other side, I think I have got the front arb more stiffer now, as these have been wound up smaller than the oem crap.

I paid 80 quid, as they adjustable. better over the standard plastic crap, and the ball jointed system!

well its test is due next week so we will see if she passes or fails,
got the discs and pads to go on still, but been busy at work and with other stuff.
I haven't had the time, to fit those yet.
I did have a spare 30 mins, so I decided to sort out the grotty boot carpet once and for all! I managed to get hold of one, it looks like an older boot carpet,( all black) but I don't care! as my boot hasn't never been the same since I put an engine in the back of it! also I have had some oil leak in onto the boot carpet too,. So I have had enough!!
[Image: 20140303134632_zpsf0c697da-1.jpg]

so I emptied what was in the boot, and stripped the rest out.

I scrapped this as it was full of oil stains and smelling like hell!
[Image: 20140303142622_zps7683eda1-1.jpg]

then layed the old ****ed carpet back in place,
[Image: 20140303134627_zps74bfcf4f-1.jpg]
then fitted the new one on top.
[Image: 20140303142617_zpsc1cc4af3-1.jpg]

the boot looks more fresher than it did!
also blagged these on ebay too!

[Image: 20140304175105_zpsc7c1cc24-1.jpg]

covers the shell and suspension!!! better than the shitty Haynes manual!
I have these type of manuals for the metro too, laugh is I could write that now! as got hold of them after I have put the car together, but still handy to have, as I know the old tricks and trades!

Looking good. been doing cam belt on my moonstone, finish it tomorrow.
Car is up for sale though as I now bought a gti6 going to be sad to see it go. Got 2 people looking at it tomorrow when cam belt is done.

How much was the carpet from Peugeot? I need a new one for the gti6, was looking at full second hand gti6 boot and floor mats on ebay for £50 think it'll be worth it.

the carpet costed just shy of 23 quid posted from ebay, I found it by browsing for bits for the car and snapped it up.
sometimes I do wish I got a rally instead of f*cking about with metros, As the 306 is a full blown package and a half! I drove a well sorted HDi and that just puts my vvc to shame!

I would love to wind this up a little bit, but I have the rover metro that is highly strung. I would more than happy to start and build another 306 as a sleeper. As no one would suspect a 5 door in standard trim haha!
