205 GTI 1.9
By Shane17, 02/24/2016
  • Country United Kingdom
  • Color Black
  • Year 1989
  • Short Description owned for 8 years, probably accumulated 2 of those actually on the road due to various ailments! Has been sitting garaged for 2 years and now able to give it the tlc it needs, hope to have back on the road within 6-9 months........ Hope I said.
  • Car Type / Usage Road car
  • Engine & Gearbox original standard engine now scrapped due to con rod punching through the block, mi16 now purchased and soon to be rebuilt. Will use my original be1 box.
  • Suspension & Steering Rear beam now rebuilt, I impulsed bought some rear Gaz shocks from eBay which I may swap out for oe at a later date. Poly powerflex wishbone bushes and front ARB fitted. May lower an inch at max.
  • Brakes Currently looking into best setup for mi16. Perhaps gti6 front calipers and standard rears.
  • Wheels & Tyres Standard 1.9's, Toyo Proxes tyres
  • Bodywork & Exterior Contradictory to the change in the engine, brakes and suspension but I want to keep the body work and exterior completely standard as there is nothing that can make it look any better imo.
  • Interior & ICE Same as the exterior plan to keep completely standard except for the head unit and speakers.
  • Comments & Plans Have rebuilt rear beam, next is front sub frame, suspension and engine bay then remove and clean/ inspect interior and refit.... Look into leaky sun roof before finally getting around to rebuilding and fitting the mi16.
