OK, we're in 2011 now. Wishbones needed replacing due to play in ball joints. However, we opted
to replace the ball joints, instead of complete wishbones.

Usually referred to as impossible to do but there you go. Sadly, I don't have photos of completed
wishbones, but they look just like ordinary wishbones :).



no no no no no no no no
you cant just say a few words about this,thats unfair!
one of the biggest everyday proplems that all 205s suffer and you get round the proplem
we need to know how you did this , what you used etc etc

Haha, I'm glad it hasn't gone unnoticed :).

Unfortunately, I wasn't around at the time, so it was my father took it up to a guy who does that sort of thing
for a living. I have no idea what car (or whatever) where they off tho'. They're more like machined out than
pressed out, as you can see in the photo where the ball joint is missing. I'll try to get some more info out of him :).

I'm considering fitting a spherical bearing on the next set of recon'd wishbones... good or bad idea?

Those wheels are great. Do the tyres rub against the wheel arches?
And when is this meet?

They don't. But then again, the rears are not standard.

The meet was three weeks ago ;).

Hello everybody!

Here are a couple of photos of my father and me on 2011 A-SLO-HR Trip by french-classics.de

Yes, I now realise I look a lot like him but the color coordination was coincidental :).


Anyway, it was a brilliant two-day trip, covering some amazing roads. We attended the second day
(4th of September, 2011). It was great to meet a bunch of friendly 205 enthusiasts with superb
examples of 205's - each car was different and pretty unique.


Here are a few thumbnail teasers:

Thanks. It was going to have a Dimma kit, but I got messed about, so it has never happened.

Still debating whether to go Dimma or something more subtle though.
