So with the house move I've had zero time to do any work on the car but that hasn't stopped me buying bits for the car.
First up us some red '6' badges bought for the price of a pint from a friend.
And then seeing what great offers Euro Car Parts had on I bought the following for £126...
Not sure if this was the one you were looking at as I bought it of Gumtree.
Yeah I love them as they feel so analogue and everything just feels right.
Bloody heavy haha! Hopefully a set of clutch fork bushes and clutch cable will help.
Yeah my 1st GTI-6 was Moonstone blue and brings back...
Well I'm not quite sure if it's quite qualifies for "retro" status yet but heres my 2001 X-Reg Peugeot 306 GTI-6.
Now over the last 15 years I've had over 10 different 306 GTI-6's/306 Rallyes including 2 supercharged versions but for the last 5 years I've switched alliances to the other...

So with the run up to Christmas etc I havent done anything of late on the car.
Today I had a day off so decided to sort out a few bits while it was dry.

An R26 turned up local and very well priced so i just couldn't say no! :eek:
Buying it means i get a car already fitted with better beam, bigger front arb and the limited slip diff plus its lower...
Sadly the full cage shell isnt going to feature in this build as I'm stuck for space to have 2 cars laid up while I transfer all the bits over. ?
But never the less I've been doing a few minor things with the car.
First up was the purchase of some engine bay bling to cheer me up.
Next up I...
Haha this actually is my first proper track car build do i want to see this one through ☺
Aiming to have it track ready come march/april do buying bits and storing them away atm. night out sounds like a must!
So after talking to a fellow Megane owner about the conversion we have found something that we think will surffice as a bracket/caliper spacer without having brackets made up.

So the buying bug continues! Spotted these on a Facebook Megane sport page and had to have them as they were silly cheap.
Those who know the Megane 225/R26 range know that the cars already come with Brembo 4 pot calipers as standard so why buy these I hear you cry?
