Red Rallye resto
I suspect i could find a new centre console fairly easily. There will be spares and its not really a part which is replaced much. I think wed find one of we looked. Id agree with your point though, easy repaired with superglue....id be tempted to swap for new if it were cheap enough though.

The benefit of getting NOS parts is that dealers are keen to get rid at prices well below retail. These are parts for cars approaching 20 years old. Dealership parts business tend to be mainly for cars perhaps up to 6 years old, give or take. If someone comes along wanting the old bits, they jump at the chance to get rid and let them go....

If you do find a stock of the centre consoles at stupid prices let me know n I might get one!

Did you ever buy a rear brake load compensator btw? Tracked down one for the 16v XSi, which had the same rear set-up at the Rallye.  https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/CITROEN-XSARA-P...SwpDdVAvsz  ....so much cheaper than the Rallye-specific part. Just got one as pulled back the rubber boot on the old one n a load of brake fluid poured out.

I guess the difference between this n the rally part is down to the bigger master cylinder pushing more fluid? I can't see how that impacts on the load valve tho.

It's all to do with the piston size of the rear calipers. 30 or 32mm

The 6/Rallye had the larger I believe, hence needed a different compensator. If you read the table of vehicles it fits, look at the power ratings. Max it goes to is 136 which is the XU10J4 engine, not the XU10J4RS.

I've a lead on a Bosch, proper Rallye/6 one for £80. Thanks for the link anyway!

Ah, yes, I'd forgotten there were rear calipers with 32mm pistons.

the difference in the compensator is the Lb of the spring hence its colour coded I believe Wink

Yes, that looks correct Cully. Never seen the colour coding on the spring before.....probably because the springs are always rusty! Is that the one you had off Bigbadbowen? Bargain if it was.

A small update from Saturday.

Picked up a pair of Rallye door cards locally from Carl G for a bargain £30. They were grubby and needed a clean but that was no issue...

G101, lots of water, a scrubbing brush and....

Came up really, really well. Happy with them. They are in very good condition. Dried very very quickly in the sun too.

So with nothing else to do until 3pm, I decided to make a start on the front carpet sections. Same drill, lots of water, G101, scrubbing brush and elbow grease. The front carpets had plenty of staining, mostly from rusty brown coloured coolant from the previous heater matrix blow. Once I'd finished scrubbing, I got the pressure washer out and got busy. The amount of crap that came out was unbelievable, especially rusty coloured old coolant.

Another bit of eBay shopping arrived yesterday.

Given I've a brand new door that will be going on, what better that a brand new, genuine Peugeot door fixing kit! £10 delivered from eBay. Very slightly cheaper than Peugeot so a bargain too!

In other news, the buggy engine sold, and it looks like the buggy has too (subject to it passing it's MOT) sold funds are now in place to progress this at hopefully a faster pace (subject to parts availability and the possible purchase of a Clio 197....����).

Finding this panel I need for the underside is proving tough. No one showing availability anywhere, numerous checks and asking hasn't turned up anything. What has turned up however, is the guy from New Zealand (who sent me those inner wing brackets) and the 306 shell he is breaking.........he dropped me a message asking if I'd be interested in the stiffener panels! The reply didn't take long to type..... Big Grin

Pics sent through and they look like this.

Difficult to tell as they are still part covered in underseal but whilst they may be a little out of shape, they are solid, rot free and still have the little oval dimple on the part that wraps over the chassis leg.

More than good enough for me. Not sure if I'll replace the whole panel or just make a repair section but it's enough to replace the mess that is my current one with genuine metal. He's sending me both.

Now, I just need to persuade that Lincoln Danny with offers of cash/alcohol/BBQ/food/the Mrs babysitting to come over and wave his magic welder wand at the car and it's game on.... Big Grin

So,

Not a huge amount to update! Still waiting on the bits from NZ.

In the meantime, I finished breaking the Ph1 Xsara. Made about £400 over what I bought it for AND kept the rack so a well worthwhile exercise.

So I then went and bought another!

2 owners, 57k and incredibly clean. Keeping this one to run around in.

The parts man got in touch recently, regarding a find in Italy.

A set of original, single button key fobs with the appropriate transponder, brand new still in the package.

Really cool project! Hope I can do something similar one day.

For me it is now just getting the GTi6 properly repainted and welded. But what you are doing is just way more awesome!
