Finally got it back today. The car itself is in brilliant condition, has 1 small crack on the lower part of the rear bumper but it isnt noticable. Interior is mint, no bolster OR carpet wear, lovely. I have a folder full of receipts, MOT's, servies etc etc..even dating as far back as warranty work on the vehicle can't wait to get to work on it








And today...

Excuse the poor camera phone quality.








First things are to make new numberplates in work as the ones on it are the original ones and a tad tatty, get rid of the carpet mats and put grip tape down as I HATE carpet mats for some reason, take badges off the boot and remove rear wiper and fit a blanking grommet which will be done this week. I'll be ordering springs for the front next week and I'll sort the torsion bar out after that then it's on to the wheels in the form of s2 rallye steelies

Not sure what to do about that as I plan on stripping most of the interior out. Any idea on the hole size for the rear wiper? haven't took it off yet but I want to look if I can get a grommet from work.

It can be removed, just put in your code and unplug it, think that deactivates it.

Not sure what the size is, when I depwipered my 306 I bought a pack of grommets from halfords, it was in that. Would guess about 22mm?

At my mates today, I've fitted fresh new plates, de-badged the rear. removed some silly peugeot security stickers from the windows and de-wipered the rear..I need to get the machine buffer on the bootlid now though as the badges have left the paint underneath like brand new

I'll be ordering the front springs and wheels next week aswell

I'll update with pics as soon as they come through

How do you get rid of stickers on the inside of stickers mate? I've got dealer stickers on mine but my mate said not to bother as they're a bit tricky?

Just peel them off mate and get rid of the glue by using glass gleaner or something like that.
