next up!! the demise of yet another peugeot part.. the floppy gear linkage!!!

this system was designed by a clever bloke down in cornwall called colin satchell initially for 205`s and modified slightly for 306`s.. and currently only fitted to 1 106.. so after a lot of asking to develop a kit for the wee pug he finally admintted he hasn`t got time and instead offered to help with some info and pics and leave the rest up to me...






and so................. it begins...............





also with the exact dimension unknown of the pivot on the main stick i made up an adjustable 1 so i can try diferent positions until i get it right..




thats about it so far...

had a bit of a nightmare doing the gear linkage today as the brass bush in the bottom of the stick decided it didn`t want to go back into sleeve once i`d welded it.. so i ran the ream back thru it to clean it out where it had shrunk and then it slopped about like dick in a dustbin.. not good!

so i decided to finish off mounting the rad as with the new slam panel i couldn`t (and didn`t want to) reuse the pug spring clips...

so.. i made use of a couple of brackets on the rad and made a plate up on the drivers side:




and on the passenger side there was a big stub thing so i pushed a bit of rubber hose over that then made a small stainless bracket to hold it to the slam panel:





just got off the www.mcgillmotorsports.co.uk website and i`m now 80 quid lighter... on the upside i should have all the rose joints/lock nuts/bevelled washers to finish the linkage...

I guess 3 years is good going for some?getting the time can be a pain and money can always slow things down but doing it the way you have been on here the last 6 Months or more its been good going,

Spinning the lawn mover lol...i like it.....

well.. its been a while since i put up any progress this is due to a few BIG purhases.. unfortunatly none of them for the rattlebox... however!

after driving a few "beginner cars" (1.0L 106: aka-the 3 stud assassin, and a 1.4 polo:aka- the PLOP!) the bird has built up a few years NCB it was time to introduce her to the world of overtaking, after looking at a few potentials i heard a friend of mine (matt@ TDF) had this for sale so after a quick test drive a deal was struck and the missus had this:





KWv2 coilies
whiteline rear ARB
TD pro race (something) alloys
v6 airbox
momo steering wheel
momo recliners
yozza stealth system and decat
camber bolts (wound all the feckin way in!)

some other bits-n-bobs lower engine mount.. hids.. and a recent RR figure of.. 168 bhp!!!!!

in an effort to get this a little more "everyday car" we had a drive down to hatfield to collect a full interior (leather and alcan)

so these got took out:



and a return to renault lovelyness!





a few suprises!!..

the rear cards that came with the car had some HUGE alpine 2ways strapped in so i dremel`d the new 3/4`s so they fitted nicely and wanged them in

the new 3/4 cards from Hatfield had some E-drive? alpine 2ways in there so they have migrated into the front doors

the bird did a good job of stripping the door cards off! she might even have a talent for this spanner lark!!


we then sat down and wrote a TO DO list:

*drivers side Apost trim needs securing
*resistor needs banging into the steering wheel airbag circuit to kill the SERVICE light
*needs a bonet stay clip for under the bonnet
*bumper lights seem inactive
*need an aerial adaptor for my old headunit
*drivers side skirt has popped out of the clips and is gaping away from sill
*a bit of flaked paint on the front bumper needs painting
*the hands free kit has left 3 screw holes in the dash that needs repairing
*theres a stereo stalk behind the steering wheel but i`m guessin i need a certain connector and headunit so that will have to wait
*personally i think the steering wheel is too small
*windscreen rubber trim has broke on 1 corner

and that is about it...

in time i might replace the TD`s with some std 172/OZ rims done in antracite but the more i look at it and drive it the more i like it.. the birds smitten with it so think all the trick bits may well stay..
