My track toy
#1
Been on here a while now so thought id get a project thread on the go.

This is the 2nd 306 ive owned the first being a Gti-6 a few years ago now but at the time i added the usual big wheels, loud exhaust and lowered it which i liked at the time but wouldnt go the same way this time

After a few months i got bored and wanted something faster so sold it and got a mr2 turbo..

Now a good few years later a bit more grown up i decided i missed having a "fun" car to play with i went on the hunt to find something cheap to buy, run and maintain and mainly just to have some fun in as a play thing and to get out on track as all my previous projects have been all about style/bhp figures and not really concentrating on actually being useable.
So spent a while deciding between a civic type r, clio 182 and a Rallye and the Rallye won.
pul
I picked up a rather used 181,000 mile white rallye which unfortunately wasnt in exactly great health engine wise Tapping away and a difficult clutch but on the + side the body (- heavy bumper and bonnet chips) seeemed in pretty good shape and i had my heart set on a white rallye and id already paid a deposit over the net so the car was purchased

After a 2hour drive home the engine sounded as bad as ever and pulling away at low speeds was just horible and would be no good in its current state so had to decide on a plan so began ripping it apart

this would explain why the engine moves so much

While deciding on what to do engine wise i got a few nice bits including a new front bumper as wrecked the old one as mountings were rusted solid. Some black mask headlights, smooth grill and a fibreglass bonnet
