Hi Guys,

 

Ok, it's not a 205, but the bigger brother is close enough, isn't it ?

Just a few more bits and pieces left to be done ... If anyone is interested I've got a whole project description, starting with a normal 306 Xsi ....

Yep, but the sprayer took more time then it took me to build it ..... which was not a problem at all, since we were rebuilding de racer for the new season in that span of time ....

 

What's good, comes fast we say in Holland ...

Here are some during it's 'winterservice'. We built a new carbon dash and wider ( and higher ) Dimma arches to be able to fit larger slicks ( 235-605-16 ). The car is at the sprayers now to get everything in color .... season is starting in a month ...
