Hello everybody! It's time to FINALLY update this topic! Not a great deal of work has been done,

but still there's a thing or two that needs to be shown to the world, starting with the mentioned

2009 205GTIDrivers.com Eurotrip.

 

It was a 10-day round-trip for 205GTIDrivers.com members from the UK, Holland and Poland,

meeting with people from Austria, Italy, Belgium, Germany, Slovenia and Croatia along the way.

The farthest point of the Eurotrip was in Croatia, on 4th and 5th of May (Pula and Rijeka region),

where I was present with the 205 Mi32.

 

The feeling of getting recognised, acknowledged and approached nearly everywhere I stopped,

getting loads of thumbs up and flashes on the road, taking people out for passenger rides and

especially finally meeting, chatting and "putting faces to names" of people I've "known" for many

years was, simply put, fabulous! The selection of 205s I had seen was also something to be admired.

 

 

Here are a few thumbnail teasers:

And a photo that means a lot to me - 205 Mi32, surrounded by 205GTIDrivers.com members from

several countries. A truly special moment for me! Thanks everybody, you've made it all worthwhile!

Like I said, there hasn't been a great deal of work done on the car over the past couple of years,

but here's a tasty little 2010 update :).

 

 

It was time to sort out the suspension on the 205 Mi32, which meant finally fitting GAZ GHA coilovers

with 300 lbs springs and eccentric top mounts, purchased via group buy on 205GTIDrivers.com,

replacing FK coilovers (front) and Koni Sport Adjustables (rear).

I'll let the photos do the talking - http://projects.205gtidrivers.com/205mi32-ph7?page=8

 

 

See you soon with a 2011 update! :)

OK, we're in 2011 now. Wishbones needed replacing due to play in ball joints. However, we opted

to replace the ball joints, instead of complete wishbones.

Usually referred to as impossible to do but there you go. Sadly, I don't have photos of completed

wishbones, but they look just like ordinary wishbones :).

 

 

Also, new wheels from the UK! Compomotive MO 7x17" ET15. One of my favourite wheels ever.

They look great on the car and the car looks great with them on :).

 

 

We also tidied up the rear end with Phase 2 lights conversion and GTI 1.9 rear quarter panel badges.

Ready for a trip to Rijeka (CRO), to meet up with 205 enthusiasts from french-classics.de!

Haha, I'm glad it hasn't gone unnoticed :).

 

Unfortunately, I wasn't around at the time, so it was my father took it up to a guy who does that sort of thing

for a living. I have no idea what car (or whatever) where they off tho'. They're more like machined out than

pressed out, as you can see in the photo where the ball joint is missing. I'll try to get some more info out of him :).

 

I'm considering fitting a spherical bearing on the next set of recon'd wishbones... good or bad idea?

Those wheels are great. Do the tyres rub against the wheel arches?

And when is this meet?

They don't. But then again, the rears are not standard.

 

The meet was three weeks ago ;).

Hello everybody!

 

Here are a couple of photos of my father and me on 2011 A-SLO-HR Trip by french-classics.de

Yes, I now realise I look a lot like him but the color coordination was coincidental :).

 

 

Anyway, it was a brilliant two-day trip, covering some amazing roads. We attended the second day

(4th of September, 2011). It was great to meet a bunch of friendly 205 enthusiasts with superb

examples of 205's - each car was different and pretty unique.

 

 

Here are a few thumbnail teasers:

Thanks. It was going to have a Dimma kit, but I got messed about, so it has never happened.

 

Still debating whether to go Dimma or something more subtle though.
