A few more bits sorted...

Bought a complete set of graphics. All the three stripe stuff and then the wording in grey which was the correct colour for a red Rallye. Also got a pair of the stickers for the door B pillars.



Also managed to source a brand new main front to rear brake line.



Now I'd heard that Peugeot didn't supply them pre bent anymore and this certainly appears to be true looking at the pic. The finish is also different in that it appears to be bare copper where as I think the original ones were either painted/powder coated or some other finish. I've got the old ones from the GTi6 to use as templates to bend them up. Need to get me a small pipe bending kit to assist with that and then think about what to do regarding finish....plenty of time to think about that. Just wondering how it would be from a concourse point of view (this is becoming an all consuming beast...). It's a proper Peugeot part, and would be what they fitted if you needed a replacement but it's not the same as the original.....

Still, as I said, plenty of time to ponder...

This still continues to bubble away in the background.....

Had another parcel arrive today, mostly NOS (never thought I'd use that term for 306 bits!) from a dealership in the canaries of all places. Shipping costs were interesting but I got a load of stuff I was after.....



Another side skirt, which now gives me a brand new pair, a new window scraper, boot flooring mat (which goes nicely with the new sound deadening layer I already have..) then a number of small brackets/clips/bits and pieces which include offset washers and bolts for the rear beam, brake line clips etc....

Thanks fella....can you see all the pics? I think I lost an awful lot of this thread when Photobucket decided to be moneygrabbing wonkers.

I owned a Mk3 Mondeo for almost 9 years.....do I know you from that scene?

No pics on the first 40 pages that i checked a random selection of. But with the chrome plug-in they should be visible (IT won't allow plug-ins on works machines)
