    Default Returning to Peugeot...

    Howdy all... after a rather lengthy absence from pug owership i've decided I could no longer resist fate!

    I came across a rather cheap gti6 (the one listed here a few pages back) which came across another forum i'm on, and decided it was too cheap to pass up.. Yep, it does have it's issues, but that can be worked through.

    Anyway, just wanted to say g'day, i'll stop by tomorrow after i've got it home (assuming it makes it before the brakes completely fail) and post up some detailed photos. I dare say i'll be giving it a full rebuild and freshen up the paint also..

    Can't wait



    Oh, anyone seen any 2nd hand compomotive MO's for sale cheap at all?

    Nice find. I had that lined up the following day if you had not bought it. Great buy. Looks complete.

    Ive just bought an Xsara VTS and the brakes need similar treatment although its only discs and pads and not the MC. That should be fairly easy to change unless its the Servo, then it a bit of a job.

    What else needs doing to it?

    Glad your bad, you wont regret it..

    Hey Cam! Long time no see
    According to owner, just a new MC...which is cheap outta the UK and easy to fit.
    Would be ecstatic if it just needed a bleed-up though!

    It needs attention to the paint and the drivers door actuator or switch.

    I actually haven't even laid my eyes on it yet.... but have paid in full. Picking it up ~8am haha.

    Cheers guys!

    She's a bit rough around the edges, but nothing that can't be fixed!










    Got a few things to do..
    Replace green drivers window reg slider
    Clutch has a slight slip
    Front left wheel bearing or a bush might need attention
    Obvious paintwork is obvious
    Needs an LSD

    And i'm going to wire in a Haltech sprint 500 just for shits and giggles

    she looks pretty good! Hope you have some fun with it.
    Also noticed it has the wrong rear bumper, hasn't got a cut out for the exhaust tip!

    I do like those seats!

    Mate looks great. That color blue goes really well with a satin black bonnet or roof..... since they need a lic 'a paint anyways!

    Good score!
    ....now watch a Peugeot turn into a corner!

    Welcome back - I wonder what happened to the S16? Yes, it did have close to 900 million km on the clock, but those wheels were awesome!

    Looks like a good pick up for not much cash! No more XR6T I take it as well?

    Wow - Looks good. The crackle finish cam covers look good. Funny, but I noticed the rear bumper as well and was wondering if anyone else did. Clutch's are cheap and easily done. The paint couldn't cost more than a couple of hundred bucks to get the bonnet and roof done. The bumper will be expensive though unless you can find used. It looks luverly and straight though.

    Keep the updates coming !

    Cheers

    Paint is going to be around $1700 for bonnet, roof, bumper repairs and also repairs to the rhs just behind the door where there's a couple of dents with paint missing

    Check the photo above it, there was a little plastic insert that was tie-wired in there and also had a pair of zippy ties making a cameo appearance too

    +1 with the above comment! I took mine out after 3 days...

    Youll also notice you loose grip off the line, especially in the wet

    Got a delivery from the auspost courier dude last night at 8pm.. 2 gaskets and a hockey stick clip from the pugpug dealer in newcastle..


    2 hours work in the shed and it was all back and ready to fire!





    All that's left to do now is kit the master cylinder (which hopefully the kit arrives today or tomorrow!), bleed brakes, weld up collets on the quickshift, refit interior trim, refit wheels and get it off the axle stands!


    Keen as **** to take it for a fang now!

    Brake issues sorted with 1L dot4 and a master cylinder seal kit for 20.. Pulls up like a champ now, does get a bit of brake fade though.. Pads and rotors are old as ****.
    406 4 pot brembos are a direct fit so ill be trying to source a pair of them from the uk over the next few weeks, should be around 150 for the pair..

    Got a slight idle hunt, will need to check again for air leaks but pretty damn certain that all is good. Might have used too much contact cleaner on the idle stepper or map sensor... Lol

    Quick shift will take some getting used to.. First and second don't feel like they engage but they do, just need to adapt to it! Prick of a thing goes like stink though
