There's a cheeky auto bonnet slipped in there!

Well spotted
I had it given, and was undiceided at the time with that or the original!
what would you have done?
The original standard is still in my shed.

i have a completely oem cherry red 1.6 gti and have always thought the auto bonnets look better than standard and would consider using one on mine!

i would keep the standard bonnet in case i wanted to put things back to completely standard again but dont think fitting one is too big a departure from standard.
its really just another standard peugeot part in the same way a lot of people replace sl 201's with sl299's which is also something i would consider again mindful it could be changed back quickly and easily.

i admire the amount of work you have lavished on the cti and have done to an amazing standard. that i am sure we all aspire to with our own cars!

a great restoration and i look forward to seeing you progress to completion.

keep up the good work

Mark

I did exactly that on my cti when I got it painted. It almost seems obligatory! However I am a bit indifferent about it but it is a nice little touch that only 205 geeks spot. However I liked the sound deadening on the original.

Great attention to detail should stand the test of time for a few years.

The head had one very worn inlet valve guide, but other than that it was in good nick.
The block and head have gone for vapour blasting.

Underneath looks great. Going to be stunning. What are you going to do for window seals as they are a hot topic right now?

This thread is is lazy lob material, without doubt.

The big downside (for me) is that it makes my tidyish CTI look like a right old turd!

I would also like to know what the plan is with door seals as I planning to take on a similar project pretty soon, though it looks I have my work cut out if I am to match this standard of work.

Looks like its going to be perfect when finished. Nice to see a cti getting restored. Like the auto bonnet mate.
