    Cheers everyone, my buddy Api (Whom, yes I am still freinds with, for now ) came round last night to get an idea of whats going to be involved, The deal is that he is going to do the work, and if i dont already have parts, its on him to get them.
    All my attention is back on the Red 205 for now, so I will only guide him.

    Plan is to get the Auto SI from Graham, and swap over everything from my crashed car, the crashed rear beam will need the tube and arms from the new SI, and will receive my GTI bars from the red car as i have heavier ones going into it, and GTI6 shocks I already have as in crash the Konis and bars bent to buggery.

    The new unit will probably end up being better anyway

    Have been bouncing ideas around my head all morning as to how to tackle this, it seems a waste to not capitalize on it, the entire idea for the white 205 was to have a gravel competition car so putting together a more extensive plan while the re-shell goes on.
    This will be a minimum budget build giving that ALL funds are being funneled into the fast expanding 505 project, and all time into the red 205.
    However, I have quite a stack of parts laying around that where bought for the red car, I also have a GTI6 that I cant get a decent price for, so a working list for Si Mark 2

    Key area supporting - Strup tops, seat mounts (open to suggestions from those more experianced with bashing 205s) Can make these all myself so not worryed
    K-Frame Brace/ Seam welding
    Beam mounts/poly bush (depending on condition of existing items)
    Relocate battery to the rear
    306 trailing arms (rear disk brakes + wider track)
    I have a haltech E6X that was running a 205, may investigate this

    ... sucker for self punishment, however being able to offload the lackey work means that my involvement will be relatively minimal, and expences next to nothing for what will be a great improvement on the car, What strengthening did your car get?

    Hey, I keep forgetting to PM you but if you're going to strip that silver gti6... You mentioned the seats are in great condition? Wish I was in Vic I'd buy them off you to help fund the 205 rebuild!

    On the 205 (gti6 engine) If I block each connection on the engine to delete this section there's no issue is there? It is only a supply for the heater right? I'm only worried it is used as a recirculation if the thermostat is closed...

    Thought about this a little more, it is the thermostat bypass so.I.Will need to connect the green marked connection back to the water pump connection yeah?

    The red one can be closed off and the corresponding outlet on the steel distribution pipe?

    Yes you need that pipe. Yes its a re circ of the water until its hot. You need or can fab a pipe with a T to go to the expansion tank also or not if your not running a heater.

    Work has taken over again but little things happening.

    Api has stripped everything from one car and starting on the other, the new shell looks in great order, no surprises,which is nice. Apis a solid dude and dwarfs the 205s

    I have assembled almost everything I needed from underneath the red car now, the power steering system and and brakes are done, as Well as the cooling lines.

    Yes, that auto was far too good to wreck.
