Irish Rally Car Build

Ive been getting a lot of info and buying a lot of parts on here lately
so I decided to do a build thread of my rally car.

This is the donor car I picked up in London on the way back from a
trip to the 'Ring. It had some nice parts like a 4 branch,spare rims with
A048's bucket seat etc.



I then sourced a non sunroof gti shell.



Some seam welding.







Seat rails in.

I'm running braided fuel lines inside the car so the fuel filter had to
be moved. I modded a diesel filter bracket from a MK2 Golf.





6mm OMP alloy sump guard.







Torque Link for BE box. Mount on floor yet to be reinforced.





A big shout out to Garry M who hooked me up with this porn after a lot
of searching.















Wrapped the manifold.

your rear brake pads are in the wrong way BTW, the L shaped bar is meant to be on the trailing edge of the pads

The one thing I was never happy with was the bolt in cage and when
the guy who came to buy my track car mentioned he was looking for a cage
I jumped at the chance to sell the one from this car.

So back to square one.









Few pics of the track car..

Looking really good Dave, envious of the gearbox!!!

Just a quick one and I hate to be a Buzz Killington... But you have the fittings on your Hydro handbrake the wrong way round, the smaller fitting at the front is the pressure out. From the bias valve it needs to go to the rear (bigger fitting) and then the line runs to the back of the car from the smaller fitting. Hope that helps and keep up the good work!!!

The cage only cost me 800 euro cash.

Colin, both fittings on the handbrake are the same size and marked In and Out.
If you think about it,the fluid flows in the front and when you pull the lever the piston
moves back and forces the fluid out the rear.

I tig welded the cage as its stronger and neater looking.Still another few hours
in it and then prep for paint.

naah, the handbrake is wrongly plumbed in, its from the bias valve to the rear port, and the front port to the back brakes.

check the wilwood website!

couldn't see for sure but looks like you didn't weld the underneath of the seat rail mounts, that's a big thing for scruts after the wyedean 07 death.

Otherwise looking damm good

You need to weld ALL THE WAY around the plate and the box section. It's not easy and it's not going to be particularly pretty but in the UK atleast it has to be done, no questions!

The death on the Wyedean 2007 was reportedly caused by seat rails not welded all the way round, resulting in both rails snapping on impact!!!!

an exact guide of the work that has been done.

good work, seen far too many seat rails left un welded all the way round and pulled up at scrutineering.

Build looks really nice

Think you will need spacers for the 206 rims too.

I got the two hubs second hand for 200 pound. Mr. Brown wanted 258 each.

Mike.. The wheels came off a 106 GTi road car and had no spacers.

Just a few small updates.

I stripped out all the loom for electric windows,locking,heater,alarm etc.
Nice bit of weight in it too.





Griptape fitted to floor





Plumbed in extinguisher mounted behind the navi seat



Started to make up a switch panel for the dash.





As the dash now needs to go into possition at an angle to fit around the cage the 3
mounting lugs were hitting off the bulkhead on the way in so I had to make room for them.

This is really nice mate - I like the way even though it's a rally car you're still doing it properly and making a nice job of it. The attitude of most is ''oh it's a rally car mate so doesn't matter how it looks!'' Lazy fuckers!

Really disliking you at this stage Dave - after reading down through this jealous!

Trying to get a BE setup sorted for my 106 rally car - One Question - How did u get the GrpN mounts to work with the BE Box?? surely if they are GrpN they are for a MA setup - did u modify it?

if a rally car isn't prepared properly then you'll find yourself never finishing a rally due to unreliability!!

Thanks for the kind words gents.

I think Lewis was refering to the cosmetics not the build quality.

The top gearbox mount on the battery tray is the same for BE or MA,the difference is with the bracket on the box itself. The lower mount wont fit,you need a torque link like above.
