    Default 205 rally car build

    Not sure, but I don't think this fits in the restoration build section - so it's here.

    It is about time this thread starts as I am sitting in an airport, Montreal, about to meet half - maybe a third - of my new project tomorrow. I'm taking the chance at the end of a work trip were I would normally just be commuting home to personally pack my shipping crate in Devon, UK. Buy a few extra bits and drop the crate at the shipping depot.

    I really appreciate the help from this forum so far regarding an engine build. All of those parts have arrived, the engine build starts in December.

    A donor 205 was acquired from South Australia.

    But I'm most excited because when I land in London I go visit Colin at Satchell Engineering and also Tony at Maxi Motorsport. I order d parts from them in June, and they are now resdy. This ill be the beginning of my 1989 205 F2000 Maxi project.

    If there is interest I'll keep this updated. I am excited, this is what I have wanted to do for a while - even if it won't be for everyone.

    Excellent choice of parts suppliers. What did you buy from Colin?
