ok well lets have abit of an update then.

first and formost most of you would have noticed ive sold the TB bits, so to answer that question first 'why?'

well mainly through love for the car really, ive allways had some idea at the back of my head of it being a nice fast fun road car thats more than suited for the occasional track day, the current spec for me is just on the edge of road drivability, its definately more than able to cope with the odd track day being thrown at it aswell.

At the end of last year i spent a substantial amount of money on parts for it, comprimising of the jenvey kit,manifold and the dta but also some bilstein group N dampers with some 30mm eibachs,full new set of decals,new pugsport,new set all tyres all around,new omp breaks all around,braided hoses,omp fast road clutch,new drive shafts for each side,new cambelt +tensioner,headgasket,mocal oil catch tank,had all dents removed from the body,new clutch cable,new drop links,group n engine mounts,raceland manifold,16v bottom end,newmans ph2 camshaft and im sure a few other bits aswell.

pretty much most of the above bar the jenvey kit is on the car now, biggest notable upgrade for me was the suspension although its now a much harder drive the feedback is great and response mind blowing, although a litle bumpy at times.

So at the minute apart from having a major OE part overhaul and replacing some ageing essential components the actual spec of the car sits at;

1600 8v

s1 inlet manifold
pt11 kent cam
2inch pugsport
janspeed 4-2-1
s1 air system with KnN panel
grp N mounts
remapped standard ecu
mocal oil catch tank
upper omp strut brace

247mm omp fast road discs and special omp pads all round

Bilstein grp N dampers with eibach 30mm springs
lower strut brace

premi contact 2 tyres all around

So as i said in the last post its just had a nice service which leaves me over the next few weeks to change the following parts.

janspeed 4-2-1 is being changed to a raceland 4-2-1

pt11 cam is being replaced by a newmans ph2

new clutch going in with semi box rebuild to include input shaft bearings etc

16v bottom end is possibly going to sit under the 8v head-unsure yet though.

qep lightened and balanced fly to go on

new panel filter on its way

ptfe gasket going on

then it'l be due another trip up to manchester to see mister schofield and have the map tweaked.

then after that il be slapping a quaife diff on and spec wise that will pretty much be how im keeping it if im honest, i feel quite satisfied with that, and in this car modifying world isnt it nice to have an end goal, rather than constantly chasing your tale and changing your mind changing bits all the time, im quite convinced that when ive done the above il be happy with the performance of the car for the rest of its days, and can then concentrate my efforts on replacing bits and bobs as they break and keeping it as mint as can be for a road going occasional track toy.

il finish my first blog post of the year with a few piccys from the end of last year, taken shortly after the dents were removed and the new decals wer on.

watch this space

i used a company called dent rewind there based in southborough kent, about 10 mins up the road from me.

i discovered them in an old issue of performance french car, one of the staf took there vts there and did a blinding job.

i must admit i was blown away by the job this guy done, absaloutly top noth and he done the whole car for 110 iirc.
there were two main big dents in the tailgate and on the drivers door and the whole thing was peppered in stone dents etc.

apart from the tiny scrape on the arch and some stone chip damage to the rear arch it looks like a new car.

id reccomend them anyday

Exactly my thinking Jazz, but I have the roar of TB's Its good to have a car you know is reliable, so you can give it a beating on track, and still drive home.

well took about kick in the gut,^^ seeing how clean my car was pre-brands dent application

anywhooooo,onwards and upwards.

the above still stands in terms of plans etc, all it means now is theres some additional bodywork to repair.

for a while a was extremely torn between using the money its going to cost in paint and panel beaters to just buy a new shell and reshell the things, but thats got to be too easy, plus it means i loose my baby

i'am however at abit of a cross roads as to wether or not i should just get a second hand boot and door etc,and have individual panels sprayed, or strip the thing back to shell and have it completely resprayed which if im honest would be nicer for me as there are some bits of it with further inspection that are starting to age here and there...

second crossroad im stuck at is..

with the 16vbottom end ive still got, do i source a head and anscillaries for that and fit it or do i sell it for a couple of hundred and put it towards the paint job??

me thinks 16v power would be nice, but 8v power still gives me a semi

Any way, im just about to slip the latex lovers on and go outside for an assesment over the beast, proablly clean it down so i can actually see the damage properly, hell i might even make some calls and get quotes for the respray.

il take some piccies

rightttt, just been out for an inspection....

good news is that time and time again this car sits there for months without being turnedover and then allways starts first time on the button and purrs into life like a faithfull mongrel dog thats just woken up and wants to play.

bad news is that it makes me want to cry when i look at the passenger side, im going to post some pictures to get advice from you guys as to what you think i should do in terms of body work...

pics coming in 10 mins

screw the 16v, sell it for some cash, 106 need 8v power. to save some money why not get it painted matt black by ur local bodge artist. will look mint, and the first matt black s2 if im correct? strip it down so you can see the damage, might not be as bad as you think.

lol it will be staying blue

ok ive got some pics, im not sure if im just trying to kid myself but after looking again the door is by far the worst panel, if that was untouched id be loking at the rest and laughing.

so from what i can see;


get a new os door
get a new tailgate
new os front wing
possibly a new rear bumper

let the dent man fix the rest
get the whole car exterior resprayed to repair war wounds and give the ok parts a freshen up

give the rear quarter of interior and engine bay a blow over myself, miles D styleee..

have a look at the pics and tell me what you guys think, it deffo looks worse than it is























oh yeah in case you wander ive still got the arches

You did a number on that didn't ya

Wing, door and boot are all easy replacements only annoying bit is the rear quater which is a bitch to get right apparently as you cant just remove the panel.

Wanna sell me your drivers wing mirror?

Oh also on the 106oc there was a guy breaking a indigo blue gti in surrey which may have some useful parts on it

Poor KFH.

I reckon strip it, cage it, do your ARDS and race it in the 750MC Stock Hatch series. They always get dented and battle-scarred anyway.

Filler is crappy if too much is used i.e. in a big scuff, especially on bumpers as any flex will crack it. Some sort of fibre glass/plastic resin stuff would be best I think.

even fibreglass resin cracks easy. i think you can get purpose made stuff for filling bumpers which bends a bit more, quite a rubbery compound iirc.

I'd replace the door, boot and touch up the rest. Then you can track slag it without caring too much, could always give the rear quarter a quick blow over after the dents have been knocked out. Then you need a cage and a 16v lump to make it a proper SE Rallye

what way round do people do painting when installing cages, paint the back end first and then weld the cage in, or preferably wait untill al the weldings done then paint the back up?

shes staying 8v for the mo aswell

Depends what kind of cage really. With mine I sprayed the interior (badly I might add), then the guys that fitted the cage touched up the areas over the spreader plates before they put the cage in for the last time. Ideally you want to spray the interior after the spreader plates have gone in but before the cage goes in.

Major semi lob-on alert!!!

well well well,

after slagging off all my panel beating spraying friends to pete,neil and louis the other night one of thems come up trumps for me

instead of paying me to do some shots of his little'un his doing all the prep on the shell, and his mate who works for a decent mainstream dealer bodyshop is respraing the whole thing for 400

carnt sodding believe it!!! bargain.

ive just seen some exmaples of his recent work aswell and it looks top notch.

so all i be needing now is a replacement pass door,boot and front wing which i may have just sourced through a breakers on ebay

at this rate i may even be back on the road for the end of summer

happy days!

right bit of a mini update...

just this second got off the phone to a northern breakers yard and bagged myself a ns door(with mirror) and wing from a rear ended rallye up there

so it means the panels are mint albeit in bianca white,although its not to much of a bother as the whole cars being sprayed.

meanwhile inside the car ive completely stripped the rear interior and have now decided to remove the carpet,seats and dash and give the floor a painting throughout the whole inside.

going to go with some grip tape in the wells with a OMP passenger bucket and a pug sport drivers bucket both in blue and accompanied by some sabelt blue and yellow harnesses.

Whilst the dash is out im going to replace the heater matrix and get it flocked, the dash that is not the matrix

in the back im planning on the spraco 6 point cage as seen in stus old rallye with the standard fittings of spare wheel and helmet net.

Also ive got the raceland i bought months back coming up from sandys to mine which will be bolted on upon arrival, and the bottom end down there will at some point be collected and kept as a spare for when the 8v eventually blows up.

Il be loooking at going for a streamline carbon 'trackday' carbon package aswell to finish off the interior.

thats the short term plan and then long term the only other major things im wanting is a diff and another 50 horse powers

im going out to kick some tyres in abit so il take some update pics...

nah in seriousness i just want to enjoy it again and make it look abit more trick, ive had it maintained to a good 'standard' condition and a good semi modified condition now im just gonna see if i can get it to a decent modified condition, im taking inspiration from various cars, miles-simons-stu's old one and blending it with my own little tweaks to make it my own and abit more individual...

il probally do a few more track days than one a year but i think id be soo gutted if i bumped it again... lol

You need some 266mm brakes dude, then you'll have about the same spec as me once that lot above has been chucked at it. A bit lacking in power but awesome other wise.

ok well ive started ripping more out of it, interior is now compeltely gone and ive found some interesting things...



for about a yet or so now ive noticed re-occuring damp mould behind the drivers seat appearing on the carpet, when i removed the carpet i found the spot under there was completely soaked and it seems to be dripping down from somewhere in the dash? heater matric??? theres pics below so your thoughts would be appreciated...





also ive found that the bolt hole next to the handbreak lever that the seat bolts down to has taken abit of a crack, when i was removing the driver seat i found one of the side bolts to be abit loose so my guess is that when i stacked it one bolt took all the pressure and has cracked the metal, again pic below, any thoughts on the easiest way to repair this?






also whats the easiest method to take out all the black sound deading at the front of the car near the pedals?

fun and games

If you don't want to take the dash out you can get most of the sound deadening out with a stanley knife. I just cut it off about half way up the bulkhead. Good few kilos to be saved there

im still ripping out sound proofing, pain in the arse job this is!

can i get rid of the unit bolted down to the floor behind the central dash area, im guessing its something to do with the seats.. orange cables etc?

shouldnt be too bad in the power department, im changing the cam over and ive got a replacement head going, alongside the raceland so should see it go from about 125bhp as it is to around the 130's hopefully, quicker than a standard 16v anyway

That little box is something to do with the seatbelts, pretensioners I think. If you're running buckets and harnesses then it can go.

well everything is now pretty much gone apart from the dash and the drivers seat belt unit.

at the weekend im going to set about thoroughly cleaning everything down inside so i can seat what im working with and then the games begin...

should be sprayed ASAP, to be honest its now as soon as ive found a tailgate and have the spare money to do it.

after that the priority is to get the cage in so then i can paint the inside, and finally in with the buckets and finishing touches.

im unsure at what point the dash it out for a flocking though

i know one thing for sure i never what to have to rip out that bulkhead soundproofing again in my life, im covered in cuts and bruises lol
