So today was Christmas day for my Rallye.....

A number of parts my parts man has been gathering were delivered. New bonnet badge, radiator top hose, number of bolts for the rear suspension/beam, and new single.button keys and transponder unit.



New beam bolts. Combo of bits holding brackets to beam.and lower shock bolts I think. Interesting to see that some are bright zinc passivate finished and others seem to be dull metal...



Brand new bonnet badge, for the brand new bonnet...



And, the piece de resistance, the keys and transponder set. Parts a lot.of Rallye owners would love.

Still looking for a welder. Have lots of biscuits. If only I knew a biscuit loving welder......

Despite the Xsara seeming to occupy most of my car time of late, I couldn't forget the 306.

It's been sat on the drive, still on the jig, just waiting for me. I had some spare time after Christmas so the same day the Xsara got.washed, I checked in on the 306.

It doesnt help that next to our house is a massive Oak tree. The things twice the height, if not more, of the house and dumps more leaves that you could care to imagine. The side of our house is a bit of a wind tunnel and the leave get piled high and go everywhere so the sight I got when I took the bonnet off was no real surprise.



Next step was to remove the plastic sheeting. Wasn't sure what I'd find as the cars been sat since I finished priming the engine bay.



Pretty pleased with that indeed. Just one small patch to deal with but this is the patch that is on the bulkhead behind the ECU I'd discovered anyway.



Not the most attractive but it's mainly rust to the outer skin of this double skinned section. As luck would have it, a mate popped up on Facebook today, breaking up a GTi6, which looked to have a very good Bulkhead with no rust.

Swift application of this....



And I have a section I can use for a repair panel. Much better to do it this way as there are a number of different shapes and angles in the section which would be pretty difficult to replicate.



Even better news is that I may have found a welder. Was at a party on Friday at a good mates house. We were talking cars and got onto the Rallye and I asked him if he knew any welders. 'Hang on' he said and then shouted a mate over.

'This man can weld' he proclaimed! Turns out one of his friends is a welder. We had a long chat about what I'm after, where I'm up to, what needs doing etc. He has said he should be able to do it and the fact the car is on the rollover jig still should make life even easier for him.

We've agreed that before we go any further that he will come over and have a look at things at they are so he has a very good idea of what's involved. Not sure when that will be yet, sooner rather than later but it's not the greatest time of year weather wise to be looking at getting the work done so we will see.

In the meantime, I'm now trying to decide on how best to prep these stiffener panels. While I will be making absolutely certain that the car will never be jacked on them again, I'd still like to take some steps to prepare and protect them. I'm considering having them blasted and then going at them with the Electrox and Epoxy mastic but I also considered having then galvanized. I know the galvanic coatings can cause a bit of an issue when welding but does anyone have any other thoughts on preparing and protecting these panels?

Etchweld,you can weld over it and it's got zinc phosphate,they won't rust again,I use it to coat all of the back of the panels I'm welding,high temperatures when welding won't lift it other than that centimetre or so where you're actually welding.

This stuff is what you want, if I remember right you can get it in a tin to brush on or as a spray

It's pretty durable and the Epoxy will adhere nicely to it,just be careful it can be quite runny,seems it wants to be applied thinly with several passes to build the film up.

Thanks guys.

I'd probably look for the spray version. The inside of these stiffener panels are fairly complex and awkward so spray might be easier
