just a little addition to my 'online car diary' as this seems to have turned in to,
a few weeks ago was selected to display as part of the top 25 at Castle Combe for the Spring action day, I had only entered for a bit of a joke as there was absolutely no chance of being picked out of all of these cars.. Or so I thought!

Quietly worked away in the unit trying to get her nice and pretty and on the Wednesday had my front bumper and bonnet taken away for respray as I was unable to get this booked in any time before and there were flaws that had to be sorted, gremlins from the initial spray where filler had decided to rear up and say hello!
Got that back on Thursday evening and duly fitted to the car, managed to refine slightly in the very limited time i had, but needs to be done properly just had to lose some of the swirls and holograms from the mopping! car was finally back together and went for road test at lunchtime Friday and set off at about 3pm.

Anyway onto the show, a 3 hour drive in not great weather on the Friday and stopped at a lovely B&B (the evening was so totally surreal I'm not even going to go there in this post but safe to say i A: Don't belong in posh hotel restaurants in a hoody trainers and jeans
and B: I am a total snowflake in strange places when someone's trying to kick a door down to get in the place I'm overnighting lol!!

Eventually arrived at the showground after a long wait to get into the gates and onto my named pitch looked at the car and thought ooooh <insert chosen word here>

no water close that i could see so did the best I could which involved around 20 MF cloths.
Long and short of it I wasn't in the top 3, and to be totally expected the winners as well as the other cars there were immense, certain people there pushed their cars further forward than others to gain limelight which was a bit off but so be it if that's what they wish to do!
The team very kindly at the end of the show let me see my scores and was told that from the judging I'd placed 9th overall- 9TH!!! I made the top 10! Engine bay really let me down but it's an old car, a budget build and is going to take time to get to top standard but the rest of my scores were 17/18 out of 20.
First time in something like this so stoked in an understatement

That's a brilliant result, Kelly. Thoroughly deserved, as it's a real credit to you.

Soooooooo, you really need to start a thread in the off topic and tell us all about the overnight drama. Sounds interesting to say the least lol.

have been away for quite a while! wowzers :O
well as I'm back figured I'd update this one a little bit, have done lots of shows, changed a few bits, added a few more bits
It seems a lot of my old pics have disappeared from this thread and not sure why, I'll try and get round to uploading again at some point, but for those that have followed the build

We started off last year at Ultimate Stance as an outdoor entry,
this year I went to the spring festival and managed 9th place out of the top 25 which I was absolutely over the moon with
amongst others we went to players classic which was the most phenomenal event i've ever been to, great location, stunning weather and to top that off on the sunday my little pug went and sat with the kenwood crew on their stand

a local show and was awarded best interior
Peugeot festival in the show and shine (terrified was an understatement being mixed in with concours level cars)
2nd in the modified category
And 12 months after we got her together have been offered my first ever indoor spot at a show, back at ultimate stance.
To add to this the Peugeot sport club are featuring the gti in their members magazine next month.
This year has been mad!
Since last posting I've just had a rear beam rebuilt, brought front coilovers, brought a satchift (any one with a 106... this is the single best change you can make to the car, it's so much nicer to drive!)
Also got the fabrics I've been eyeing up sent over from the USA and some fitted already.

Now planning bits for next year, hoping to save enough to retrim my seats, audio hopefully and have gone to the dark side and found myself a set of 3 piece splits (steels won't be going anywhere though haha)
Enough spouting and a few photos from the mag shoot.
still far far from perfect, and lots of bits to update and fix/tidy up, but slowly slowly catchy monkey as they say!
Happy to be back here though!

Small update
Not long after the last lot of photos, the rear beam rebuild I'd waited quite some time for was finally ready.
Project pull car apart yet again! (Doing bits as and when I can afford them whilst trying to keep the car on the road)
Firstly getting the car up and the beam off was a lot of fun, at this point I had no idea that the rear bearings were part of the hub and it was very apparent very quickly they were let's say, ahem 'well used'.
Also noticed on pulling apart that one side on the pads and discs were more heavily worn on one side and noticed pretty quickly with the beam off that one side of the brake pipe was pinched.
Once the new hubs and brake pads and discs arrived rebuild was started.
We replaced the brake piped front to back on both sides and fitted braided hoses.
What we thought was a sub £300 job turned into an almost £500 job, learnt a huge amount at the same time as we had 4 days after finally getting the beam on to lower it, and get it through mot. Fortunately flew through with only 1 advisory, and off to its first show indoors.
Was mega nervous and really convinced it didn't belong in the hall but think it all went ok in the end!
Next stop- dyno run and face up to the power she's lost and get working over the winter on some new bits
