Wanted 106 GTI Shell

After my MOT yesterday its obvious without a massive load of additional welding my 106 wont get through an MOT next year. So Im looking for a decent shell to reshell my car into at the end of the season

Im after either caged or non caged shell with not loads of welding required, I expect a bit but not another shell I need to get welded up every year to keep it going

Does anyone know if the quicksilver shell could be used to reshell a GTI into

You'll need a "sport" shell. the 1.4 quikky has a different engine upper mount.

Any shell that takes a cast block as standard will have the same shell. 1.5D, VTR, XS, GTi etc

Personally I'd go for a 1.5D shell, and drill the body kit holes in the sills yourself, that way you can treat the holes properly so it won't rust from the inside out.

That's great advice thanks, if I was to get a 1.5D could I swap all my bits over onto it - I guess the only element it mightn't have would be the front anti roll bar?

Just found a 33,000 miles immaculate example up in Carlisle, would be a shame to rip something like that apart but if a decent shell could last me some years :-)

Just had a quick look at the advert on ebay, looks like the ideal donor car.....it really does look like new.

Good shells are like hen's teeth these days!! but back in 2001 i purchased a new Gti (non sunroof) shell from Peugeot for 780 delivered, its been dry stored every since. i'm slowly installing a Custom Cages weld in multipoint T45 cage but not sure yet what the final car (spec wise) will look like, currently building a road going track / sprint 106 Gti so hopefully finish it this year.

Get your skates on and buy the 33,000 mile bargain

Yes, but the mounts on the body are there for the sport style ARB

So yes all the suspension will swap over correctly.

That was going to be the original plan for my 1.5d - but I'm now driving it daily hahaha! it's saving me so much money.

No issues with clearance using the standard GTi stuff. You just need to trim a bit off the quarter to fit the bodykit. it's only single skin there anyway.
