Andy, not quite. The carpets I think are the same as the GTi6 ones. Quite heavy weight and thick foam backed......the Rallye was lighter than its GTi6 brother but not in the carpets I don't think....

So, afters pics of the carpets. Pleased with how they came out.





Picked up the bits today. Bumper isn't quite 'mint' but is complete, undamaged other than stone chips and had what appears to be a fairly new grill section and the splitter but in with all the factory fixings. Guy threw in a pair of lowering springs too. I'll move that lot on, will more than cover the fuel to pick them up and leave some in the paypal account for the next lot of parts!

Ben - long while since I've checked in. Hope to catch up with your thread soon. Carpets look good!

I'm after a splitter. Maybe the whole bumper assembly depending on how knackered mine is. Let me know.

Cheers
Tom

Same as what I did on my wife’s old Corsa, it worked a treat you can also use it with warm water which means you can dilute it further

Dilution level will really be driven by how dirty whatever you want to clean is....

My carpets weren't too bad. The good thing about mine was the orange staining is usually sediment suspended in the water, rather than anything else, meaning when it dries, it's just sediment to remove rather than grime or grease etc, which turned out to be the case

Level and type of soiling will drive your dilution levels. Liberal application of eblow grease and a scrubbing brush never did any harm either

Another bit of eBay shopping arrived yesterday.

Given I've a brand new door that will be going on, what better that a brand new, genuine Peugeot door fixing kit! £10 delivered from eBay. Very slightly cheaper than Peugeot so a bargain too!







In other news, the buggy engine sold, and it looks like the buggy has too (subject to it passing it's MOT) sold funds are now in place to progress this at hopefully a faster pace (subject to parts availability and the possible purchase of a Clio 197....����).

Finding this panel I need for the underside is proving tough. No one showing availability anywhere, numerous checks and asking hasn't turned up anything. What has turned up however, is the guy from New Zealand (who sent me those inner wing brackets) and the 306 shell he is breaking.........he dropped me a message asking if I'd be interested in the stiffener panels! The reply didn't take long to type.....

Pics sent through and they look like this.

Difficult to tell as they are still part covered in underseal but whilst they may be a little out of shape, they are solid, rot green and still have the little oval dimple on the part that wraps over the chassis leg.

More than good enough for me. Not sure if I'll replace the whole panel or just make a repair section but it's enough to replace the mess that is my current one with genuine metal. He's sending me both. Idea is I'll sell the other one which I hope will cover the postage costs and effectively make my repair panel free....





Now, I just need to persuade that Lincoln Danny with offers of cash/alcohol/BBQ/food/the Mrs babysitting to come over and wave his magic welder wand at the car and it's game on....
