Peugeot 306 HDI 5 Door

So yesterday included sanding an filling the wheels. Getting the etch primer done as well Smile Not very nice stuff I have to say.

Left overnight to dry and then 2 layers of high build primer have been sprayed on this morning. Seems to have gone on alright. Forgot to key the etch primer first though but tbf it was fairly rough anyway hence the high build. Also most of the high build gets sanded off just leaving a smooth surface and any little rough bits filled in Smile

Going to leave them overnight to harden fully so I can properly smooth them out with wet and dry tomorow ready for the grey primer and then the colour layers if all goes to plan Big Grin

Painting is going well,

Just got a couple more layers of colour to put on them all and then 3/4 layers of Lacquer as well to strengthen them and make them shinier.

Nice job you've done there. Make sure you give them plenty of time to cure, preferably somewhere warm so there is less chance of the paint getting damaged when the tyres are fitted.

Cheers man Smile they have had a week to cure properly. Going to give them a polish up and see how they do. I struggled with the colour layer as it went on quite dry :/ but the lacquer has probably saved that. Either way saved me a lot from not having to pay someone to do them haha Big Grin

Getting a full set of Michelin pilot sport 3's this Saturday Big Grin Can't wait haha

Well I'm loving the ps3's haha. So much better than the skinny various cheap branded ones the car had on from the previous owner. Handles so much better and can't wait to start doing some proper handling mods now I can see how much potential these cars have Big Grin

Went to do the other 3 calipers recently as after the first one it started pouring down with rain. Unfortunately the paint had all gone hard in the tin and was really thick and gloopy -_- So that has kinda stopped happening until I can get a new tin of paint haha.

Started on improving the electrical system. Managed to get one cable in today to join the alternator and the positive on the battery. Will be doing earths soon as well once I have a new better battery terminal Smile

After I had finished that I gave the car a good clean with autobrite magifoam and purple velvet shampoo. Both great products and really good to use :Smile  (sorry for bad photo quality I moved haha)

The one going to the alternator is from Halfords for £5.50. The other one is 50mm2 welding cable going to a fused distribution block in the boot for my amps Smile

Did a bit of tidying up of the rear bumper. Shame I didn't have any filler. I thought I did but had already started so couldn't be bothered to get all re-setup after.

Well had a bit of a push again with the car.

Quick small thing I did first to neaten it up was a decent set of pressed plates which look really great imo.

Ordered B4 shocks and Eibach springs, New top mount bearings and drop links. Got them fitted up which has made the car so much nicer to drive Big Grin

[Image: aayp7s.jpg]  [Image: 2z3rypj.jpg]

I then took the car to a dyno to see what it is actually putting out. According to the dyno I am running 135hp and 240Lb/Ft of torque which has impressed me. I am thinking it is realistically closer to the 125 that Pro-Steve maps Stage 1+ cars to.

Things to do -
 - Fit new rear brake discs I have bought today
 - Investigate why one of my exhaust rubbers keep dropping off -_-
 - Try and stop some of the annoying squeaks and rattles in the interior
 - Finish off painting the brake calipers gold (About damn time)
 - Investigate the rumbly noise when driving (Gotta be a wheel bearing but 2 garages have said otherwise but couldn't find the fault)

So today has seen the car have the following fitted haha.

- Lower wish bones
- Lower ball joints
- Track rod ends
- Front wheel bearings
- Rear shock absorbers
- Rear brake discs

Then I had it alignment checked on a professional laser setup thing. Don't know what to think about it really haha.

Just got my wishbones through the post today too look good although strange how one is painted in black and the other is the standard metal colour, did you find this with yours? New febi bilstein droplinks and ARB bushes look good also
Should defo come to Pugfest, so much fun taking the car up the hill! Went last year and sworn id go every year from then on that I can haha Smile 600 mile round trip for me, so a full tank nearly, but well worth it for 1 day a year Smile Managed 52mpg from that tank with 3 hill runs hitting 4.5-5k in 2nd gear after every corner haha, and sitting at the 'national speed limit' there and back lol
