Bodywork looks fantastic and what a clean engine bay.

These are Sparco spacers bought on one of the rally supplier website: http://www.rallyshop...rco-peugeot-205

Thanks, it's all look good at the picture but when you look closer you can see lots of imperfections. I am planning to sent the car for respraying. I am hesitating between original P3XY black colour and this one.... (btw: what colour code is this? )

Anyone has a picture of freshly resprayed black 205 GTI ?????




What are the thickness of the spacers ?



SurGie it's bare minimum to fit Brembo's - 24 mm, the gap is so small between Speedline's that when wheel wasn't precisely balanced it was rubbing against the caliper. Posted Image

How is your project going ? I can't wait to see the final product man!


PS: I just got the rev counter loom from Spiky, hopefully that will sort out my rev counter then. Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Yeah its going well, im nearly at the point of fitting all the parts onto the car :) Iv had a few problems though that takes more of my time. Its all the prep thats takes most of the time, fitting everything back will be easy and quick, here's hoping.

I dont have the paint code for that colour but the colour itself is steel grey, check out the forums main site and the code should be there, i like that colour too :) Its a rare colour and was not very popular when they were first selling these cars.

It should be on the technical section of the main website HERE

Thanks for the tip about the colour. I looked on few websites and the colour code is M1TA - Magnum Gray. I'm really tempted now Posted Image As you said, color will look nearly black at night and gray in the daytime.

Not much updates on the car recenty. As part of the winter overhaul car has been fitted with Baker BM group N engine mounts, this eliminates engine movement in engine bay and make the whole car "stiffer" well the feel of it at least. Every plastc shakes twice louder then before Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image




We've changed the timing belt...

and lower the rear beam, this is how the car looks like at the moment.

I Got this by looking at one of the online parts store. It was listed as 405 unit but they nearly all the same. Part number is on the picture ;)

Interesting place for the expansion tank :).

Did you have any radiator clearance issues?
