Matts rallye project. operation derust
#1
After deciding the xsi was goingbto cost alot to fix I really couldn't be bothered to dish out more time effort or money at it. Decided it was time for a new car. Been looking at rallyes for a while and said that if I were to get something '6 engined it would be a rallye (or a 205 ninja) right so set about looking and foun this up on eBay. Low starting price but had over a week and I'm impatient. Messaged the guy offered willin some cash done deal!

Right so specs as is

T reg Peugeot 306 rallye in white 1 of 200 made.
Current mods are

Magnex cat back system
Decat
Induction kit with cold air feed
OMP Corsica steering wheel and boss
Lowered 30mm
15" oz alloys
Magic trees
Stripped boot.

Plans for it.

Fix all the dents/scratches/stone chips.
Make things red
Keep it serviced.
clean up the seat as they are filthy!
Replace door handles with white ones.
Machine polish

Long term
Team dynamics pro race 1.2s in red
Partially stripped interior
Throttle bodies and cams.





Pictures to follow

Really nice buy buddy well done!!

Can't believe you've got a genuine OMP Corsica steering wheel though! Such a gay Tongue How do you find driving it with one? I find it a bit tiresome on long motorway journeys, just cause you cant stretch your arms out and adopt the G-lean; but when pressing on it's a million times better, you have so much more control I feel...

Loving the long-term plans too, I think it's where I'm looking to go with my Astor now too; after stacking it, it's very unlikely I'll be in a position to afford boost in the short term!

I want to see this when I'm back from holiday!!! Big Grin You'd best be up soon Tongue

The wheel is fapping awesome. Just needs a centre!
Needs a few things tidying up but what's new there?

Although I'm thinking it might have maybe be a cat something write of at some point as the doors are a slightly different shade? Probably me just being paranoid. Either way I have a rallye! Big Grin

Well this has made me somewhat happy

So that's all above board, and the doors must be just off. Not sure why but will have it mopped and see what happens

Matt mopping it wont change the colour of the doors. Only way you will get that sorted is either respray the doors (please don't do it your self....we know what your like with painting)or get someone to match the colour of the doors and blend them to the wings and rear quarters.

Matt I have a 'horn' centre if you want to effectively blank the hole for a little bit? You can have it for free next time i see you; I didnt need it as it came with my boss kit, but my wheel came with a proper centre anyway..

Does your airbag light flash btw? If so that's an easy fix with a resistor, which I can also have a look at for you Smile

Nice one on the HPI check; it's something I always do before buying a car, as it's a useful bargaining chip if you go prepared. Good for peace of mind for you now though!

The doors just probably got swapped due to dings, or maybe they just need more of a mopping of they're discoloured from road dirt? If they are a diff shade they will need colour matching though as Niall says. Or you could try finding a good nick pair on the '6 forums or at a scrappie...

Going to give the car a bloody good clean up and a mop and see what the doors look like, could be swapped due to anything really. Not too bothered at the moment.

Also no purple on this one. It's red this time round Smile

Yeah I just found the c clip that holds the lock in, in the passenger footwell. I guess he's had it out. Will whip the door card off next week and take alook. Apparently the reason the lock is like that is someone tried to break in. May just swap the driver door for another, or just spray the handles

I bin trying to get bianca door handles they are like rocking horse shit to get without a door, or they are just mega money like £30 posted each,

Did he give a reason for the door handles being different?

He just said previous owner did it. I reckon they are replacement doors from a pov spec.

Bloody passenger handle (inside) just fell off. FFS

So far from the xsi I need.

Handles inside and out
Speaker bolts
Ph3 shelf
Sound deadening
Carpet
Boot deadening
Boot carpet
Black pillar trims
Interior light

And Ive gotta get these for personal preference

Number plate holders
Cd player
Ph3 dials
Ph3 spoiler
Strut brace

Bloody car is failing me right now
But I wangbto find everything possible that's wrong while I still have a car full of spares!

bianca is one of the best colours but paintwork is really horible to polish!
My paint work is really chalky Sad Clay bar from dodo juice has worked a little Smile

White cars=hard work but worth it in the end Smile

I need white door handles too Sad was going to spray a set but dont think they will come out that well :S

yeh i have a set primered ready, just worried that my paint work isnt a great white yet and needs more polishing other wise the colour is never going to match and worried they are going to crack cause you cant spray round the backs that well.
