The dream build...

Right then progress, now I did have many a picture to update with but my phone went mental and broke so Iíve had to get a new phone so no pictures unfortunately

Basically the car was given a full deep clean clay bar and polish with a coat of wax and the results were amazing, hereís a few pics I took of it





Not perfect by any means but sooooo much nicer haha

I managed to find some spare body kit clips that I forgot I had haha so I chucked them
On the side skirt and the passengers rear arch which were both loose


So the passenger side now looks a lot nicer


And last but not least I treated it to a stainless 4-2-1 manifold which sounds amazing even on the standard exhaust





Sadly while fitting that the backbox (which unknown to me was completely rotten) decided to snap and is now hanging on by a thread which is great for the noise so new one was ordered

Just got to fit that this weekend as well as s new conical gasket for the center section


So thatís all for now will update soon

Is that rear gasket oem on Citroen's and Peugeots??

I've recently done a rear box on a 307, but there wasn't a gasket to fit...

Sorry should have explained better haha, the gasket was for the front join on the exhaust off the downpipe, the back box doesnt require a gasket
