Jason's Slalom/ Xsi

Already got a blog going on the 106oc, but i thought i'd create a more concise one here.


Started out back in 2007 when i bought this for 500




Soon got bored with the car so bought some league ninja 3 stud alloys, debadged it and added a high level brake light:



(i was 17 i thought the wheels looked good! weve all been there lol)


Grew tired with the standard unsupportive interior so bought a full S2 rallye interior and fitted that




Whilst at the scrappy i spotted a VTR that had just been bought in and secured a good deal on the following:




In the meantime i decided that XSi's looked cool so i thought id fit the xsi bodykit


(cutting arches is not fun!)


Still 3 stud, looking like a tractor!




Generally tidied up the VTR stuff:




Got round to fitting it:





So i then ended up with this!

Too high i thought, so i fitted some GMC -50mm springs:




Bought some 205 1.9 Gti Speedlines (to this day i still think they suit the S1 perfectly)




Got hold of these at a decent price:




Found a megane splitter at the scrappy and thought it would be a good idea to stick a tow sticker on it (sticker is now removed!)




Got bored of silver wheels:





(also lowered the beam 60mm)

(FCS 2008)



Decided I needed more power, so when i saw this rallye at a good price i snapped it up! It had just had a full engine rebuild and was fitted with billies, nissens rad and a few other tasty bits!




In Feb 09 i set about stripping it and getting all the parts ready to swap over into my car:




I then set about removing the old 1.1:


and plopping the 1.3 in its place:


(had to cut out the engine mount reinforcement from the rallye and weld it in place)



Also ended up swapping over the ENTIRE car loom to the rallye one!


Started 1st time!


(at this point i also fitted the S1 rallye struts and ARB)

Always wanted morettes so bought some:




And then some cheeky french plates! (lasted 4 months before i got a 60 fine :/)




I then fitted the rear opening windows from the Rallye:


and sprayed the Rallye vents up:


Fitted OMP strut brace:


Powerflexed everything:


Got bored and painted my wheels anthracite:


Bought and fitted a 2" pugsport:

The next step:


16v powaaa!!!


Going to be taking the car off the road at the end of this year so I can fit the engine and respray the entire car and tidy up a few things whilst at it.

At the moment its going satin white with Gloss anthracite: wheels, roof, morettes and bumpstrips

I'll keep you updated!

I'd go for a gloss finish to be honest - especially if you're going to the trouble of a full re-spray. I'd be tempted to keep it the same colour too, it's nice and different - and I really don't like different colour panels (i.e. roof!) Anthracite alloys sound good - I prefer that to black.

Lovely little project and nice to see a car evolve fairly sensibly.

Cheers mate, yeah ideally i'd like to keep it this colour because its pretty unique, however white is tempting! I think i'm going to try and source a new bonnet and wings for it in genesis blue as that's really the only paint that's letting it down, and go for a respray next year.

Ok... so the summer has been and gone, some progress has been made!


Here we go!

This is what the car looked like at the end of June, unloved and engineless!


My plan at the start of the summer was to have the whole car rebuilt sprayed etc, needless to say things didn't go according to plan and the car still hasn't been sprayed, but progress has been made!

I set about stripping the front end to address any rust issues and have it sprayed


Found some rust and welded some plates in



Refurbed the suspension and steering components



Fitted new bearings


Stripped down the 1.3 rallye engine I bought




Cleaned it all up


Ground in new valves


Discovered the head and inlet had been ported and polished


Fitted new valve stem oil seals


Put it all back together using all this stuff



Once I had the engine rebuilt and mated to a 1.1 gearbox using a brand new clutch, i got Daddy J to spray the bay (having prepared it first of course!)






The colour is LDV ice white. I chose it because it is the ''purest'', brightest white you can get

Once the paint had gone hard, i set about refitting everything


Dropped the engine in




So then we were left with this


So then it was time to turn my attention to the rear of the car.

The beam had slight play in the drivers side trailing arm so i decided that the easiest solution was to buy another beam. I won a VTR beam on ebay and stripped it down to see what the stub axles were like but annoyingly they were knackered.

Whilst debating weather or not to get the stub axles replaced by imaxles for 120, a 1.4 S1 XS came up cheap locally. I decided to take a gamble on it having a decent axle as I was planning to use the windows, bonnet wings and boot on this car as they were in better condition than the ones i had for this car

Luckily having stripped the axle down, I found the stub axles were in good condition so gave it a lick of paint along with the VTR torsion bars, trailing arms etc.



I also decided to fit some grease nipples in the trailing arms to try and keep them packed full of grease and the moisture out!

Before fitting my nice shiny beam I needed to get the rear underside in an acceptable state!

I found some rust!


Cut it out and welded in a plate




and then did the same in the following places




Gave it all a nice protective Red Oxide coat


Then a few coats of white hammerite



Then refitted the beam, fuel tank and made up some new brake lines




So this is how it stands, mechanically sorted. Next job is to spray the bodywork but this wont be done for a while as am back at uni.

So after doing nothing to the car for 9 months due to being massively busy with my final year at uni I finally had a bit of time to crack on with things...




The flange on the 421 manifold that came with the engine was non existent so I simply welded the flange off a VTR downpipe in place (after bolting the flange and exhaust system to the car and marking the position of the falange on the manifold to ensure the system sits correctly!)




During the course of the year i also got hold of some freshly powder coated S2 Steelies




However, these have now found their way onto my 1.1 for the time being...


Decided to go with an S2 filler cap because they are smooth




Fitted new disks and pads




Decided to loose the aerial





Completely stripped the interior




Got rid of the Tigerseal i used to hold the XSi kit on with




Flatted everything down




Then my dad very kindly sprayed the car




Went for a Graphite Grey roof



(Morettes, Rallye vents and 205 GTi wheels will be going this colour too, only the vents have been sprayed at the moment)





So this is how it stands as of today...




Basically just needs putting back together which shouldn't take too long
