Tom's 200k Rallye

I've been meaning to make a thread on here forever, today I finally got round to making one. I've had my Rallye a while so I'll skim over what I've done so far! Some of you may have seen it over on 'moaners.

I bought the car like this a couple of years ago.



I done some general maintenance on it, changed the alternator and swapped back a few of the less tasteful mods to standard items.

I swapped the standard engine mounts for some Vibratechnic mounts. Found some rust.



Gave it a full service.



I bought a Janspeed 421, caused no end of idling problems and major fitment issues.



I bought a steering boss and this OMP Targa was chucked in for free, so stuck that on. Which I've since swapped for a dished OMP wheel.



Pulled the dash and carpet out to sort some leaks, gave me a chance to wash the carpet off.





As with standard procedure with French cars, fixed some more problems.





Polished up the dirty Pugsport that came with the car.



Bought these for the 'bay, still yet to weld in.



Took it to French Car Show.



Hit 200k.



Got some B8s.



Machined polished the whole car.



Bought another engine and gearbox to rebuild, along with a non PAS rack and column.

I then removed the inlet manifold, replaced all the gaskets and sensors.



Bought some new OEM decals ready for a respray.



Sent it up to the Beanie to do some welding and painting.



Wetsanded and polished up the paint and wet sanded a nasty scratch on the outside.







Lowered the axle slightly.





Wet sanded the roof and polished it up.





Bought a QEP race head and CatCam pulley.





Then I got hold of Peugeot Planet out of curiosity, again being French had problems.



Bought some of Tommys steering arms.



Then the rear axle started to show signs of camber, so I bought an IM Axles refurbed axle and sorted some rust out under the boot floor, I also lowered the new axle but lowered it too much. So I'll be raising it up soon.











Just before Christmas, one of the linkages kept coming off the gearbox, so I took this chance to swap the linkages for rose jointed ones and change the clutch at the same time.

Recently I've been sourcing parts for a new front suspension setup.







I then had some of the parts hard anodised and powdercoated.







I bought some 6" Faulkner 250lb springs and 3" 40lb Gaz helpers.



I was intending on using my B8s as the dampers, but this happened when I took them off the car.



Whilst this was happening I bought an OMP clutch and Compbrake quickshift.





Then last Friday I had some PSF Tarmac dampers delivered to put in my coilovers.



That brings me up to date, a bit brief but the full write up is over on 106owners. Comments and criticism welcome!

Thanks for reading,

Tom

Quality of work going on looks very high - both sides of your boot floor look better than any part of my car!

Thanks guys! I'll be redoing the boot floor and underside at some point this year, so should be a bit tidier soon

Just to keep this thread up to date, this is what I'm currently up to.

I set the ride height. I'll probably raise it up in the future, I've got some 23mm torsion bars to go in at some point.



I've been cleaning a gear box up ready to put on this week, I've replaced the roll pin in the selector arm to try and remove some of the play in the gearstick.







I've given all the arms and sump a coat of black since the pictures were taken.

Looking good! I got a few pictures of this from FCS 2012 from the convoy group.



What paint & sealer did you use for the boot? Looks clean!

Also, I hear you still haven't fitted the inner wings so I think you should sell those to me

Nice photo, that seems so long ago now.

2k paint, then wet sanded and polishing the paint back up. Sadly it doesn't look like that anymore, being redone at some point soon.

Inner wings are staying with me, I've got a few more panels now to be sorted out soon enough. You can still buy them anyway bud', 50 odd from Peugeot.

Quite depressing it was some time ago!

I plan on doing the full interior and engine bay on mine (maybe exterior if I can really be bothered) but my cars are in a dusty barn so it would collect silly amounts of dust to flat out
What did you do for the underside?

I should plan on buying some soon, but I can just imagine them being put aside and left for ages till they get used

I bought another Rallye as the shell is much cleaner than mine, and I needed an engine for my other Rallye. Having another shell also means I can take my time prepping it for a respray and what not.



I've been swapping engines this weekend! The new Pug' donated it's engine to the old Pug'. The old engine gave up the ghost, head gasket went. Obviously whilst the engine was out of the old Pug', I gave it some loving. Took off a layer of structural grease and left the rust for show.





I tided up some of the rust and put some black Hammerite over the clean metal.

Engine went in with some back breaking labour on what seemed like an Indian summer weekend.



I got it all back together, runs nicely. Just need to swap my cam over to the new engine.

Prior to the engine swap, I've been tidying up the new shell ready for some welding and a respray. I'm currently wanting to make a Lewis style mint Rallye, for blasting round the back roads.

All for now,

Tom

Looking really good Tom! What's the plan for your old shell when the new one is resprayed? Was going to say that engine bay looks quite tidy really, then saw the whopping great hole in the inner wing :O Bit of seam sealer on the underside of that flange when you repair it and it should be fine That is way too good to scrap!

Thanks buddy! Well the old shell is still my daily, so it'll be kept on the road until I break into the industry I want to get in.

To be honest though, the pictures don't tell half the story, the shell is in a bad way. I'm going to buy a MIG sooner rather than later, so I'll probably attempt to repair it all at some point.

Still looks quite nice after some tidying up today!

Pimping Various Parts - Brake Servo, Pedal Box & Wiper Motor

I'm back after a little break, I was pretty burnt out working on french heaps for a while. However the love soon came back and started making some progress on the Rallye MKII. I started by taking everything remaining out of the engine bay and then degreased the 'bay, came up pretty nicely considering it's age.

Before



After



Brake Servo

I started the pimping with the brake servo. I originally wanted to take it apart and have the casing powder coated, but after looking at it, I didn't have the right tools really. So for now I've settled with the standard bare metal, etch prime, high build and satin black. Came out really well, shame the casing was slightly pitted from the rust apart from that it's pretty mint.
Before



During



After



I just need to buy a 23mm MC and clean up the brake fluid reservoir, then it's ready to go.

Pedal Box

This is still a work in progress, I'm waiting on some bolts from the electroplaters. However, I stripped the whole pedal box and brake linkage system down so that I could have everything powdercoated, cleaned, plated, etc.

Which looked like this



After powdercoating



I started reassembling it, however I need the bolts back from the 'platers in order to continue, so that's on hold 'till they get back.

Wiper Motor

Finally the last week or so I've been fiddling around with the wiper motor/linkages trying to make them look tidier, partly because I saw how tidy Lewis' setup looked.

Stripped the motor off the linkages and took the cover off.



I then decided that I wanted a better connector on the wiring, so after a talk with Stu' he recommended a Superseal connector. Took me a while to get the connector on, however got there in the end. Whilst the connector was off I tidied up the wiring with some heat shrink. I also fitted some nicer looking stainless bolts.



I then picked up the cover from the powder coaters, along with some other parts.



Today I put all the linkages back together and reattached the motor, looks nice and tidy now!



That's pretty much it for now!

Tom

Thanks man, high praise from you!

Tell me about it, I spent the good part of 3 hours wiring that up, when I saw yours I assumed it was fairly straight forward. Although that was a walk in the part compared to putting the wiper linkages back together, them plastic caps things are shit.
