Hi Guys,

Have been busy at work on the Rallye over the past few weeks, hope you like....



After buying an OMP strut brace at last years FCS (yes before I had even bought a car to put it on! lol) I finally got round to spraying it and fitting a few weeks back.


Also decided to go back to the OE cold air feed/filter system. When the better weather comes i'll be giving the rest of the engine some TLC! lol


Decided I wanted to go back to the classic Rallye look, and so sold my black Speedlines just before christmas (hope your enjoying them as much as I did Tom!). So pleased to be back with steelies though!



Santa was very good to me this year! lol Finally no more loose cds rolling about the footwells with this Alpine 'ipod ready' Headunit. Have upgraded the front speakers to three ways too.


Anyway thats me for now! See ya!

02-01-2006, 02:39 PM
Cheers Steve! Yeah the other ones coming along nicely, shes in the garage without any front suspension uprights at the mo as we're taking them down to Leda on friday to let them work their magic!

Theres going to be some work done to the ECU in feb ready for the start of the season too, im not sure where we are going for that, my dads been on the case with that one.

The car has won its first award too, 'Best Prepared Stock Hatch 2005', so Im going to Warwick in feb to receive that.

Erm... we've got some sponsorship for 2006 too, off my boss at work whos paying for our entry fees next year which is a huge help!

Heres a couple of pics with the new graphics....


Oh my sites up and running now, theres quite a few pics on there already... www.dansummers.net :)

I get this at both work and college doh Especially at the moment as i am running antherite black steelies so it looks like they have been nicked rofl

Keep up the good work :D

Very impressed, Looks like you got a tooth brush out and cleaned it with that!!

02-01-2006, 04:05 PM
Nice engine bay, very clean.

Use a cotton wool bud around the edges of the brake fluid reservior and you're golden :)

02-01-2006, 04:10 PM
sorry, but why is your DANO numberplate the wrong way around on the front ? is that so people can read it when you're behind them ?

and it's 1 letter off GONAD :D made me giggle :D

02-01-2006, 04:12 PM
ooo those wheels look minty fresh, iam putting off ordering some until the nicer weather comes, mounting the weight on the inside makes a huge difference as well

02-01-2006, 04:19 PM
Looks dead nice that :D

02-01-2006, 04:24 PM
Cheers guys.

James I'll be getting an updated 2006 list on my site in the next couple of days. :cool:

Russ your exactly right, saw a couple of people do it last year, so thought what the hell! lol I'm not gona be able to look at it without seeing GONADs now though! lmao :D

Graeme, I know what you mean about the weights, its all about the little details :)

Dano. If a Stockhatch looks that clean then you either have far to much time on your hands or your not trying hard enough!:D I know how hard it is to keep a stockhatch straight!

02-01-2006, 11:11 PM
Looking great Dan! Both Rallyes are very very nice :D

03-01-2006, 07:47 AM

I'm sure there'll be some battle scars in '06 Ian, hopefully as a result of being nearer the front! :D

Im not sure if basher Blumpson is doing it next year.But if he is im sure if i bribe him with 1 he'll give u some orange paint! lol

03-01-2006, 06:45 PM
That's not fair! You're hogging all the nice blue S2's! Both are totally mint.

I was very confused at first when I saw the stereo, iPod gear etc then your sig with the stripped out interior but now I get it

04-01-2006, 07:57 AM
Cheers for the comments guys. Thought that station was a good description of how the cars coming along Rob! lol :D
