Well, considering the length of time that has passed since I did it, and it's only really got primer on it, then it has held up very well. There are a couple of rusty spots which I will go back and address once I get it on its side as I suspect I didn't get them properly derusted before, despite them seeing as though they were.

I'm still not overly happy with the finish in the painted section of the boot floor. The brush marks in the epoxy mastic still show, despite it getting a layer of the flat finish stone chip. I think it looks amateur (which I suppose it is...) at best. I
will investigate spraying the mastic for the engine bay I think.

Spoke with a welder friend last night. He is going to pop over on Sunday and have a look. Still hoping I can have this up in the air fairly soon.

Picked up the jig today...bit of a journey.....hour and a quarter from work to Telford then another hour and 40 mins home. Knackered.

Went outside when I got.home, swept.up some.more.of the blast media, which is getting much easier to do as it's dried out. Then opened the boxes with a view to start building stuff. Certainly a well put together kit. A massive bag of bolts..



And then a pair of what look to be M486 bolts



I was just too tired in the end so packed it up again and came in. Been feeling rough all day, this bug is still kicking my ass, despite a week of antibiotics

Came in to find me tagged in a Facebook post for a genuine, brand new wing. Correct number too...





£30. I collect Saturday Definitely needing new wings. Passenger side one has a dent on the crease, and both wings have had multiple layers of paint previously. Can't really go wrong for £30. Least it will fit properly!

So weekend plan is big steak Friday night at the pubs with wife/daughter/friends. Saturday collect wing, build jig. Out Saturday night with other friends, that's going to be a bit messy...Sunday I've my welder buddy coming over to:

A) laugh at hungover me and,
B) figure out this welding.

Ben,

Those are a pair of the biggest nuts I've seen in a very long time. Lol.

Result on the wing too chum. Does the rallye have specific part numbers, or does any 306 wing part number 'fit?'

Yeah, they are pretty big! Mind you, Im certain they are the main pivot bolts for either end so can perhaps understand their size...

I think the wing from any sport model would be the same. As far as I can gather, it's to do with the holes placement and indentation for the small piece of side trim and possibly the side repeater. £30 is an absolute bargain though as these don't come up all that often. I've been keeping an eye on eBay. Plenty of S/H and pattern parts, just not new, genuine Peugeot stuff.

Today's bit of Meccano done.....



It's a superb bit of engineering. Very easy to put together indeed. Took me about an hour this afternoon.

Lol, yes, there will be. Needed to get it built so we can get an idea of where the pick up points need welding on the towbar.

It certainly looks like a decent jig, and should make it a little easier to get the Pug finished off

I feed the need for some Elbow Lyrics.....

"Blinking in the morning sun,
Shaking off a heavy one....."



A week on from blasting and this is how it looks. Given how damp it's been, I think it's held up very well indeed. Supping a brew, about to break out the hoover to remove the last of the blast media before I start with the hydrate 80.
