I would love to but ferry prices are ridiculous going from Ireland to UK :( besides I had my holidays planned the same time. I heard there will be some tasty 205s going from Europe&Sweden.

You can admire beautiful weeds growing in my driveway in the reflection of the door. :wub:

In the deepest drawers of old Peugeot dealership I found boot seal ;) I've been looking for this for ages, and finally I manage to got it. Hopefully this will be a solution for my leaking boot.

Still not sure, should I keep it as the value of those can be really high. Impossible to get really

I've seen a few around and you're hardly going to get rich selling it so you know what to do with it ;)

I've collected the car from the bodyshop after changing the sills, there is no major rust issues but I will strip the whole suspension and protect floor  & arches  before the winter this year.

Another sunny day in Ireland, and what a great chance to get rid of the cobwebs from the car. There was a great Classic Cars & Motorcycle Live show @Mondello Park (link to the gallery https://goo.gl/photo...dA8czeoKfP1jpB7 ) and I had a chance to do quick track session and also drive home through some lovely & twisty roads and record everything with GoPro.

Car passed MOT today with flying colours. Prior to that I had to change the brake pads/discs and hand brake cable. I've also change the oil ( Quartz Total Racing 10W50 ) Only 1400 miles covered since last MOT

Car looks schmick.

Could I ask whether that is the 309 rear beam, or spacers? I like how the rear wheels wit out a bit further and fill the guards nicely. Also, lowered about 40mm at the front, or closer to 50?

Thanks mate. Black paint is something special when it's in that condition.

Cheers
Ben

Sorry mate, found the answers to the above near the start of your thread - 40mm and spacers.
Cheers
Ben
