Hi there,

 

Just thought I would start a new post for the 205 XL I bought a couple of weeks ago.

 

First of all the first build up spec will be as follows:

 

(All coming from the 205 CJ I currently drive)

 

-106 gti engine from PUG1OFF

-708 cat cams, remapped ecu, 4-2-1 manifold and other tweaks.

~150bhp

 

-205 gti subframe, standard Arb, poly bushed.

-Spax RSX coilies, Compbrake top mounts.

-base model beam with drums, built up with 23mm Arb and 21mm torsion bars

 

-206 266mm discs and calipers

-good ridge braided hoses

 

-205 gti half leather front seats and phase 1 wheel.

-205 gti valances and phase 2 bumpers

 

-106 s2 rallye steels in met grey

 

More to come..

 

Here's the pics so far:

Cheeky purchase, new rallye steels wrapped in new a048's

 

Liking the maroon and white, what do you guys think?

It is bud, I've half removed it and taken it off the otherside already unfortunately, had big dreams of spraying the whole car white!

Thank you calvinhorse.

Definately keeping it maroon for the moment. Would be a shame to change the colour as it is quite tidy on the body for an old girl.

 

So the supply for the fuel pump is ready to be tracked into the XL. Fuel tank removed ready for the gti one. Rear beam stripped on the cj, so I should be building up the XL beam tonight as well.

 

Wiring seems to be plug and play from what I've seen so far, that will definately save me a lot of time!! Hopefully the rest of my sprays arrive today to finish painting the engine bay, then a little lacquer tomorrow.. Might even have an engine sat in there by Sunday night :)

After only ever owning a cabbie, and now driving this, I am pretty lost for words now, these 205's drive bloody well with a bit of tweaking!! So over the moon I swapped it for the hardtop

Stripped my first MA box

 

Few more bits and bobs to strip, waiting on new bearings coming too!

 

This is a VTR gearbox, I'm fitting the 205 XS final drive to lower the ratio!

 

Above is the Tran X I bought last year, really need it to start getting some traction!!

 

Still to be fitted is the OMP cage I bought from Minigibbo! Off for blasting this week!

Lsd is in place now! Looking forward to fully assembling the gearbox, once the new interference fit pins arrive along with some seals.

 

Roll cage is fully welded in and plated everywhere

 

Coming together nicely
