Bought my Cossack back in February of this year which required some tlc.
[Image: IMG_0972.jpg]

Bought the car with a mind to break it for bits,but on the way back to the workshop she changed my mind Big Grin

The first job was to have a good look around her and make a job list up.]
Noticed the back floor was getting a crispy so i thought i would tackle this first.

Removed the the exhaust, spare wheel/holder and rear bumper to see the full extent of the problem....

Ns rear floor:

Os rear floor:

On further inspection it all seemed solid and i thought i might as well drop the rear beam and fuel tank and re paint all the areas which is not undersealed.

Beam came off with ease

Fuel tank was more tiresome....

And wallah!!

Ready for treatment.

Cleaned up the floor with a bit of tfr and elbow grease.

Here is the two worst affected areas:

OS bumpstop:

NS bumpstop:

Pulled a lot of muck out this duct areas.
I think Peugeot should used more under seal....
Thanks given by:
After cleaning up all the affected area with a wire brush and sandpaper i treated all the area with rust eater and applied some undercoat.

After a struggle with the bumps top cap bolts i finally got them free and removed them so i can treat the area around the bump stops,3 coats of rust eater,seam sealer,2 coats of metal under coat and the two thick coats of top coat.

Time for the wax oil,treated fuel tank and wheel arch area and then refitted the fuel tank with repainted tank support bars....

A few days later i removed the beam from a s16 that i had bought for parts last year and started to prepare the beam to be fitted to the cossack.
The beam had been re bulit and lowered 30mm. Oh and also had skip brown solid beam mounts too 8-)

[Image: IMG_1088.jpg]

Removed the rear disc back plates cleaned up and painted.
[Image: IMG_1101.jpg]

After cleaning all the dirt and grime off the beam it was ready for refitting, i thought about repainting the beam but i though better of it.

[Image: IMG_1102.jpg]
After a bit of a struggle i got the beam on to the car by myself.Plumbed up the brakes,refitted the abs sensors and fitted new handbrake cables.
[Image: IMG_0512.jpg]
Braided hoses too.
[Image: IMG_0513.jpg]

Has taken a few late evenings to get to this stage so far and there will be a few more to come.

Got some phase 2/3 rear lights too.

After finishing off the rear suspension i spun the car around in the workshop and jacked her up.

[Image: IMG_1242.jpg]

Removed the front struts and hubs and fitted some donor struts containing Blistien B4's and Elbach springs....
[Image: IMG_1236.jpg]
[Image: IMG_1237.jpg]

Then i fitted some used tarox discs and started to prep the front calipers & carriers for painting.
[Image: IMG_1239.jpg]

[Image: IMG_1240.jpg]

After this i started on the engine which was well over due a cam belt.
[Image: IMG_1243.jpg]

It had covered 47000 since the last change and the water pump,guide and tensioner looked all original from the day she rolled out the factory.

I also upgraded the cam pullies to the later type ones which seem a better design.
New water pump and timing belt fitted it was ready to tension the belt up with my new seem unit tension gauge....
[Image: IMG_1253.jpg]

Also gave her a full service and changed all fluids bar the power steering.

After all this was completed it was time for the test drive. Apart from the tracking being out she goes well, does not seem as fast as previous 6s that i have driven but that does not bother me.

Here is the glamor shots...

Been a while, just been driving her while without too much issue.

Fitted some new drop links a couple of months and gave her a quick wash and took some pics.

She is filthy at the moment lol

Got few jobs that i will be doing in the near future after i have cleared the 306 graveyard that is my workshop.

Full mop of the paintwork.

Paint the black strips on the front and rear bumpers

Fit a short shift and uprated gear rods.

Possibly fit a de cat, unsure on this tho.

So plenty to keep me busy.

Looks fantastic, wouldn't change a thing!

The front badge can be updated to a 106 one I believe, which has a solid lion instead of an outline, just makes it look a little fresher.
Disclaimer: The above is not to be taken to heart and is probably a joke, grow up you big girl.

Thanks given by:

Is the 106 badge something you get secondhand or from Peugeot???

And what phase 106??

I believe the front badge from an S2 106 fits, however I have no idea whether it is bolt-on or has to be modified to fit....

Ph1 Cossack '6 are the nicest 6's IMO, looks amaze!
ONly tiny little thing I'd say needs changing is the fogs, they just look abit too small in the bumper. Are they originals?

Thanks for the positive comments.

The front fogs are aftermarket ones and they are past it tbh, im looking for some OE ones with the yellow tint. But i have had no joy so far........
Thanks given by:
Looking really good. God I love a ph1 Cossack.

Just get some standard fogs and paint/tint them yellow yourself, much easier Smile

Ebay is your friend. The 205 and ph1 306's are the same. Sell them in yellow too
